Our second night in Lisbon and this was where we chose to have dinner. It's a little out of the way on a side street in the neighbourhood of Lapa. It would have been about a 30 minute bus ride from our hotel on Avenida Liberdade so we took a taxi which got us there in less than 10 minutes.... More

You should try this restaurant when you are in Lissabon. The dishes are tastefull and well prepared. You really get good value of your money. The Waitress was very nice and attentive, and so are the Hostess. She showed us around inside the restaurant. The only negative thing was the hard wooden chairs. After 30 minutes sitting on it, you... More

Amazing food, attentive service, really unusual restaurant and they even gave me a goodbye present when they left! One of the best dining experiences I have ever had! Very reasonable price too.

We ate in summer in the garden. Totally romantic. The food was excellent and we were positively surprised by the prices which were very good related to the high level of cooking. Staff was friendly and did their best to speak French. We recommend this restaurant.

Based on the reviews I Had very high expectations for my dining experience at this restaurant. High expectations are usually not realized. This restaurant really does deliver, especially in terms of service and interesting food combinations. Fusion is an excellent descriptor for the most of the dishes. On this particular evening my family enjoyed one of the risottos and two... More

Somebody labelled this restaurant a hidden gem. Yes it is. You are so welcomed by the girls. You feel so at home. I had a table on the balcony with views on the downstairs garden with more tables. A fantastic setting. Food: marvelous, details are very well executed. But the absolutely highlight is the personal touch. Could I live upstairs... More

So this review is long overdue, but I was lucky enough to be invited to Clube de Journalistas on a rainy February night of this year. The experience started with the delivery of the menu (english and portuguese versions) in envelopes, a charming and cute idea that goes with the theme of the place. The restaurant is in an old...

We had no idea that we would be dining outside - but the courtyard experience is the best. Tables spaced nicely around the courtyard under giant umbrellas as these little blossoms showered down all evening long. Menus are delivered in envelopes and it is small and fairly limited - really the only reason for the 4 stars. We did not... More

We had a wonderful dinner on our trip to Portugal. This restaurant was recommended by Luis at Lapa 82 Hotel, and it was great. We sat outside in the beautiful patio under the trees and had a lovely time. The food, drinks, and atmosphere was excellent. The proprietor came out to welcome us and we had a great time. Mary...
