This was not my first visit to Lisboa Restaurant. It certainly won't be my last visit to Lisboa Restaurant. I have never been disappointed with their food. I was there with my daughter for dinner, we did not have a reservation and had to sit at the bar. I'm so glad we did. The ambiance was warm and friendly, the... More

out of the way location, terrific food, good service, casual ambiance - traditional home style portuguese cooking. steaks and seafood are terrific, the house vinho verde wine is tasty. fresh bread basket, flavorful dishes, daily soup specials. desserts also traditional and good.

Most people would not stop or go in to this restaurant because it's in a rough industrial part of town. My client knew the area and suggested this place because of the food. This is a perfect secret. If you haven;t eaten here, you are missing out on a great experience. Overlook the old building and neighborhood, and go for... More

Was traveling north on Route 8 in CT late after an event that unfortunately had less food than expected. We checked the Trip Advisor app for nearby restaurants and found Lisboa had great reviews, was close to the highway and was open for another 15 minutes. To be honest, without the TA reviews we definitely would have passed this place... More

Though I have been a few times I haven't had a chance to review this wonderful Portuguese restaurant located in....well not so good of an area... but regardless of that.... the food and atmosphere inside is wonderful, I would suggest calling ahead though and reserving a table (they have limited hours)... The bar is nice as well. They have fresh... More

this place is set in an industrial area of Waterbury. A little difficult to find but the food was fantastic. started with grilled sausage that came out in a flaming dish. Very nice presentation and could have been a meal its self. For lunch we had cod pancakes (the special) and a grilled chicken with rock salt and a little... More

I had dinner at Lisboa on 11/16/13 with my wife, father and brother. We had a great time. The food, paella for 3 of us and roast suckling pig were absolutely delicious. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.

Never expected to find excellent pizza in Prospect, CT. No wonder the place is bustling. My favorite is Margherita - the fresh tomato and basil and this one was the best I have had anywhere. My wife had a wrap that was too large to finish and filled with meat and veggies. We'll be back!

What a terrific meal we had last night, in this hidden treasure in an industrial area of Waterbury, Connecticut, not far from Route 8. Put the address in your GPS and DON'T be put off by the location, or the look of this place from the outside. Once inside, you'll be treated by extremely competent and friendly service and terrific... More

Went on a recommendation of a friend and it was a real disappointment. Service wasn't good, had to ask for everything and we felt ignored. There was really nothing on the menu for me to order, so I had a dinner salad and went home for dinner after leaving there. My husbands dinner was a stew-y sort of thing that... More
