“So European!!”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Awesome !! Great food and great staff! the restaurant is typical, very European. the environment provides a warm atmosphere and ancient. the food is excellent and abundant, perhaps a little pricy but given the position we're not complaining.

“Trendy spot at underground basement in 18th century building”
Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

The Fabulas is a trendy cafe / restaurant within the Chiado circuit. It is located in the basement of a 18th century building. Low light, solid rock dark floor, white walls with stone arches, together with comfy sofas of different sorts and styles, make a trendy but cosy and informal atmosphere where you can anytime, for a light meal, to have a glass of wine or even a more serious meal.
It hasn't the richest of menus on what concerns the number of options (6 to 8) you have if you want a serious meal. Food is very good and looks even better.
Service is very kind and polite. Not cheap but worth every penny.
Definitely a come back (very soon)

“Tasty Food But better as a Bruch our Cofee House”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

If you are looking for a fancy or typical portuguese restaurante, this is not the place. Fábulas is maninly a coffee/bar/pastery house with brunch service. Despite having lunch and dinners menus, their speciality is brunch and light meals. Everytime I went to Fábulas the food was always tasty and well cooked, specially their Chocolate Cake, which is a definitely must have!
However it is a bit hidden from the main street, the prices are a bit high due to be located in a very Touristic area. A good place to stop for a snack or coffee break during a visit to Lisbon
