Food was really tasty and our waiter Rui and his colleagues were so friendly and charming. They made it a really special experience. We had only intended to stay for a glass of wine and something small to keep us going until dinner but we ended up staying and ordering more, the food was so good! Highly recommended.

We came a little off the daily schedule for the locals and the staff attended to us warmly. We felt part of the family. The atmosphere is charming and the food was excellent.

Visited this restaurant on our last night in Lisbon with a group of friends. All six of us cleared every plate, the food was top notch. Our waiter Paulo was great fun and professional, nice treat for the birthday girl too. Thanks for making a special night for us. Super atmosphere and lovely decor. Highly recommend Meson Andaluz!

We ate here on our first day in Lisbon for a 5 day city break. We stumbled upon it as it is near our hotel. What a find! The food was amazing - 6 totally delicious tapas dishes (one of which was a 'doubler'), bread, an amazing bottle of Rioja, water and a coffee for only 65 Euro. Oh, and... More

Every tapas is really good and well prepared, maybe the best tapas I ever ate. The price are a bit high, but the quality of the dishes makes it worth. However the service is really slow ! we waited 20 minutes before a waiter handed us the menu, we ask for more wine, it never arrived, a table that arrives... More

We were staying round the corner from this hidden gem. We only called in for drinks but loved the atmosphere. The service was also good. The wine was really good and we were given the opportunity to taste it first even though we were buying it by the glass which was a lovely touch.

By far this was our favorite restaurant from the week we spent in Portugal, and I would recommend it to anyone staying in or near Lisbon. The first thing that caught our attention were the amazing barrel tables on the steps leading down to another street in this gorgeous Lisbon neighborhood. The menu was was what sold us on eating...

As far as I know, the best Andalusian restaurant in Lisbon. The food is very good and the staff very friendly and you can see they try to do their best. Only con: When the restaurant gets crowded, the service may take a little longer.

Description
Andalusian Cuisine in Travessa do Alecrim.

On your way from the Chiado hill to Cais do Sodre, you'll find Meson Andaluz in a restaured seventeenth-century building with brick arcades, where the tapas are the star.

The list of wines includes Spanish and Portuguese names, and the new list, Iberian and with some new names in it stands out for its quality and modernity, without losing the essence of the traditional flavors.

Be it on our terrace or in the interior lighted by a small light, the atmosphere invites a degustation of a tapas, raciones and charcuterie's festival.
