We went to The Tavares for dinner, last December, 22. Some friends had given us mixed reviews about it and having tried to make a reservation for dinner at a previous trip and not succeeded, we made a reservation a long time before the date. We were surprised at seeing it was almost empty, with only four tables taken and... More

The place was amazing! The deco was fabulous with lots of details and very classy. The waiters are very knowledgeable and recommended great wine pairing options. The prices were a little high but all worthed it!

We had Christmas Eve dinner here and enjoyed the fantastic service, food, and wine pairings. The staff was very attentive and did a great job of explaining each course of the fixed menu. Although it is a pretty restaurant with history, it is very overpriced.

Tavares Rico is called the most impressive restaurant of the world, and it's in part true. The dining room is richly and lavishly decorated in gold and is full of mirrors like a French or Russian palace. Service is exquisite and you feel really an important person seating in the chair where some Hollywood actor, XX century statesman or Portuguese... More

It is undeniable the place is charming.. if you just walk on the street your eyes are catches by the "shiny super star" mirrors! Staff was good and willing to help. Food wasn't that incredible as was the bill instead.. so, the restaurant is good, maybe a little overrated..

Excellent restaurant. Food very high standard. Surroundings most opulent and stylish. I cannot fault the service. Waiters very professional and attentive, and very knowledgable regarding wine choices and the cuisine. Highly recommend a visit if you are in Lisbon

Visited this place with my wife. In terms of food, it was uninspired at best. I did like their butter selection, but nothing beyond that. The food was just uninspired. In a city bursting with so many great restaurants and flavors it was especially disappointing. Every restaurant before that was such a hit, that this just didn't stand up and... More

Enjoyed a great dinner with my mom while in town. We had the grouper and ox tenderloin. Everything was exactly like we ordered and better than expected. We started with a swordfish tartare, and also the bread and butter sampler. Both were great. The staff is very knowledgeable about the menu and the building.

The interior of the restaurant was quite beautiful. All in gold and mirrors reminiscent of a French castle. The night we went there was only 1 other couple. The food was above average with beautiful presentation but lacking a bit in how it was prepared. For example, the fish stew was nice but the octopus was overcooked and chewy. The... More

We did their tasting menu with wine pairings and the best you could say about both is insipid and uninspired. The wines -- mostly whites -- were non-descript and were not ones we would have purchased were we selecting our own wines. We both did a double-take when the sommelier/waiter informed us that the year of the wine really doesn't... More
