The defining factor here is the view from the terrace. Make sure you have a reservation if you want to have a table with a view. The food was very good as well, if a little pricey. I had the ox tail and it was...More

We found this terrace via a very cool and very old hotel lift and luckily got one of the few bar stools that show off an amazing view of the city. (They won’t let you sit at the main tables unless you are eating). Great...More

The restaurant has a nice and trendy interior and the view is amazing but to be honest that’s everything the restaurant has to offer. We made a reservation three days in advance to get a table on the rooftop which we didn’t get at the...More

The view is great but the food is way overpriced. 11 Euro for 3 paper thin lobster ravioli in a watery sea food foam and that’s the starter. The main was better, nicely cooked fish though again the turbot is ruined by that foam. 2...More

The place is nice and products are good. But they promise a vegetarian meal : they completely forgot protein! It was only vegetables and a tiny purée. They should add some soy beans or lentils to talk about a “vegetarian meal”.More

A quirky and well located restaurant and bar located in the Bairro Alto neighbourhood. It's on the 3rd floor of a hostel building, the dress code when we went was summer casual. The dining experience was very pleasant and the cocktails we had were quite...More

Stunning view of Lisbon and definitely worth coming up for a drink but the food was decidedly average especially for the price. Could have paid the same in London and had a much more amazing taste experience.More

Quite the quirky atmosphere from food to context set in a unique rooftop with a ridiculous view of the Castle, old Lisbon town and Tagus river. Whether on the intimate Terrace or at the Bar our chef will provide you a rediscovery of flavors and textures through the least expected combinations. The Insólito is the perfect place to gather groups, meetings and events, with a maximum capacity of 65 people
