“Good outdoor location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Outdoor location was great for people watching and the tapas was tasty, however the staff was a little unfriendly at first. By the time the staff had warmed up to us, we were ready to go.

“Nice atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

We really enjoyed eating there last night. We sat directly at the bar and had a good chat with the waiter. The shrimps and Serrano ham were very good and also the Mojito. Maybe a bit pricy but definitely not as bad as many reviews suggest it is I guess it always depends on what you order and where you sit.

“Too expensive, good service and atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Agree with comments about prices, too expensive, so avoid it. Otherwise, we've enjoyed sitting in the middle of the street and all the seafood was really great. If they go 50% cheaper, then I'd definitely recommend it.

“Unfriendly personnel and expensive overrated food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Christmas eve in Lisbon didn't give us many option, because many restaurants were closed. We chose to go to Tapas 28, because we were up for some easy fingerfood. And it was the most horrible choice ever. After 5 nights of outstanding and delicious food in Lisbon, Tapas 28 unfortunately was our low. The food is completely overrated and over-priced (Approximately 13 euros per tapas), the meatballs were tasteless and the personnel was unfriendly. I would recommend not to there, ever. But visit all the other great places in town, where you can eat so well for very very reasonable prices.

“Tourist trap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

The service is incredibly bad, the waiters are actually sellers who try to make you spend as much money as possible. The food is really expensive for a low to very low quality. Example: The "Pão con tomate" (bread with tomato, which you would expect to be similar to the one you find in Catalonia) is actually some tomato juice on bread!
I could spend my whole evening to relate the bad experience we had there, but I'll just give a last example: you get charged €2.5 per person just for sitting down and getting a plate.
