We booked this off the back of a number of good reviews prior to a night in Lisbon as part of 10 day break in Portugal. The reviews were definitely accurate! The walk up from the centre has quite a lot of big hills and steps but once we found the restaurant we were pleased with the quiet location yet proximity to bars. The restaurant has around 10 tables (3 outside) so I would recommend booking. We sat outside and saw a lot of people turned away because they had not booked.

We ordered the local meat and cheese platter to start (with a side of smoked butter which was incredible), We then ordered the baked octopus and pork cheeks for main. They were kind enough to split each dish so we technically had two mains each so we could sample each dish. The octopus was one of the tastiest dishes I have ever eaten and would order it again in a heartbeat. Pork cheeks were incredibly rich and meaty and were also very good. The house red is great value too as we found in most places in Portugal. The whole meal came to around 60 euros which is incredible value for the quality of the food we had.

If you're in Lisbon for a night or two I would implore you to visit Versiculo for the amazing food, great location and friendly service

Booked and visited here based on tripadvisor reviews before we arrived in Lisbon - and we glad that we did!! We booked to sit outside (one of only 3 tables out there) and when we arrived we were greeted warmly. We ordered house wine, sausage and cheese sharing starter, then the pork cheeks and octopus. Much to our surprise and absolute delight, the owner split the 2 main dishes and first brought us each a small(ish) portion of octopus, and then a portion each of the pork, both with fully sized accompaniments. Both dishes were stunning, but the octopus was by far the best thing we’ve eaten in Portugal, amazing!! The owner was lovely did not rush us, despite the constant stream of people trying to get a table. Definitely book and ask for a table outside, you will not regret it!! Also the smoked butter was to die for!

I read all TripAdvisor s comment and I decided to go to this place and it is very good place - I went with a friend from Lisbon he didn’t know but he was very happy to know.
For 2 we share a pate of Iberian pork sausage and a local cheese ( yummy damned so good if u like tasty cheese ) the we took ( octopussy very tender and I order cod ( bacalhau) roasted with patatoes purée very good and a big plate ! Then we took ice cream and I choose orange roulée with cocoa and ice cream a very wonderful ending - we drink a half vino verde wine and 2 bottle of water for 69 euros that worth it ! Come and please book cause very small and only 2 services at night 8 pm and 10 pm ! Enjoy it :-)

This restaurant was delicious! Had the shrimp to start and the octopus as my main. The octopus was cooked perfectly! My husband had the lamb which he said was also great! Loved the ambiance of the small intimate restaurant. You can also sit outside.
