Amazingly creative ten course tasting menu. Really fun place to go as a small group. Cool decorative surroundings.

One of the best places in Lisbon. Magic food, amazing environment and excellent service. We tried many plates, but I’m in love with the green cone with salmon. It’s so tasty. Difficult to choose which is your favorite.

We had an absolutely delicious meal here. We had the Epic Tasting menu with wine pairing and course after course was excellent. You know when you turn yourself over to a surprise tasting menu that there will be courses that you enjoy more than others,...but with the exception of the tuna tartare (sorry!) every course was a wonderful taste adventure. The wagyu burgers were so amazing. Decor was nice. I would definitely come back!More

We visited here and did the epic tasting with wine pairing.The first two courses were great and then it went downhill from there.Basic tasteless food greatly presented but bland.The sommelier was 23 years old and inexperienced too.Wouldn’t bother so many better places to visit.Paying for...the name not the food and service a huge dissapointment.More

This was our best dinner is Lisbon. The ambiance, music, drinks, and service were all on point. The food was approachable, delicious, and fun. It was actually really cheap as well, and the small dishes mean you can taste everything. We actually enjoyed this more...than the Michellin starred restaurant we visited.More

We had a great dinner here. For two people who work in hospitality this was a breathtaking experience. The team is great, especially Rafael (our host for the night). He made sure we were happy at all times, recommended great wines, was genuinely interested in...our opinions and was smiling all night. Quality of both food and drinks were good, we choose the a la carte menu and loved every single dish that we got served. Thank you so much Mini Bar team!More

We chose minibar for my birthday dinner on our weekend break to Lisbon. The atmosphere is great. Decor great. But food is all show and no substance. We chose the epic tasting menus and course after course came out of raw food and ended with...a random beef slider and potato heaped in salt. The waitress told us the menu is made up if the most popular dishes in the menu...I highly doubt that raw/undercooked egg in a bowl is a big seller. Raw food is fine but not four courses in a row. Very disappointed and terribly overpriced. A real let down on what was an incredible trip to Lisbon. :(More

This is the place to go, and you should definitely try their tasting menu. We had an amazing experience. Every course was a surprise and a cacophony of tastes - and a candy for our eyes. We loved every minute. Impossible to name a favorite...dish. Only complaint - there could have been a bit more light so we could have appreciated the colours even more. We asked the waitor for wines to mach, and were happy with his suggestions. Good coffe as well.More

Great food. Busy place so get a reservation in advance. The staff was attentive and helpful. We opted not to do the mystery dinner but it seemed most of the best options from the menu were being served to the couple next to us that...did order the mystery meal. I would highly recommend and would have returned if possible but the timing wouldn’t allow for it.More

Really enjoyed the experience at mini bar. Ambiance was perfect being nice and cosy. Service was very good apart from right at the beginning when the waitress completely forgot to bring our wine meaning we didn't have a drink for around 15 minutes. Another minor...gripe was the fact that drinks choices are only available via an iPad? don't get this idea at all? For the food we went for the ALC option, it was mostly very good indeed with the highlights being the avocado tempura and the tuna tartar. Least favourite bit was the burger which was very salty and decidedly average in comparison to the rest. Dessert was chocolate cone... very good. Thanks for a great evening. xMore

Hi, they serve seared tuna, and depending on the day, might serve another type of fish. I haven't specified whether their tuna was sustainably grown.
