“Great meal, excellent service and awesome price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderful evening in Adlib at Sofitel Hotel. The food was amazing. The cook did a great job. Our waiter was very kind and helpful. I strongly recommend it to eveyone visiting Lisbon. You can have a great 3 course meal including wine less than €25 and enjoy the modern atmosphere of Lisbon.

“A Sophisticated Palette of Flavors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Although the restaurant is part of Sofitel Hotel, is open to the general public. Is very well located, in the main avenue of Lisbon.
The staff is very helpful and friendly. During dinner there were musicians playing jazz.
The atmosphere and decor is sober and it is quite cozy.
The cuisine is very sophisticated. The starter Grid of Flavours is like an artistic installation.
Defenatly a spot not to miss.

“Excellent food, wine and staff - what more do you need?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

We had arrived late afternoon at the Sofitel Lisbon and would usually ask around and try to find the best recommended restaurant in the area local to the hotel. However, this time we were tired from travel and so enjoyed a very good drink in the hotel bar and then decided to go for the Ad Lib restaurant. What swung it was the excellent 30 Euro set menu - a great value meal, especially given what was actually served. This was fine dining at a very good price and each of the courses was delicious - the amuse bouche, the starter, the fish, the meat and the dessert courses - along with the bread. The staff were very welcoming and pleasant and the restaurant had a good atmosphere - on street level looking out onto the street. There was also a good A La Carte menu - but I cannot comment on the food - as we had the Set Menu, which changes daily and certainly did not disappoint in any way!
