Description: The Madragoa Cafe is a place where you can find a traditional Portuguese cuisine, where the products used are fresh and Portuguese. The predominant wines are from the Douro region, however it is possible to find wines from other regions. The dishes are a selection of some of the best that each region of Portugal has to offer. The desserts are traditional and some are made at the restaurant. The affection with which clients are received, that comes from the heart. See you soon!

We visited Lisbon for a long weekend and stumbled across this great restaurant not far from our hotel. It looked intimate and authentic and we were not disappointed. The menu was quirky and interesting but the food was fantastic with good Portugese wine, all served by a knowledgable team. Cristina came out to check on our excellent cataplana for 2 and was very friendly and welcoming - she ensured all of her guests were made to feel equally special. We rarely bother with dessert but thoroughly enjoyed a home made fig cake and some fresh pineapple. Thank you for a fabulous meal and a lovely evening. If we make it back to Lisbon we will certainly visit Madragoa cafe.

They are lovely charming people. They wecome you in whatever language you speak. The food is VERY filling. Both of my son's had a very tasty looking dish. My younger one had a big bowl of black spaghetti and prawns. My older one had this seafood extravaganza inawarm bowl. I am utterly amazed at what they can make! They should have an award for such great food (and customer service)!

Would 100% recommend.

Exceeded the high expectations set by previous reviews. Antonio & Christina make it a great evening even trying to persuade a 12 year old that he really does like vegetables!

Antonio and Cristina provide a fantastic, authentic Portuguese dining experience. Cristina was especially attentive in providing an exceptional vegetarian meal. The menu has several vegetarian items, but be sure to ask about the options for vegetarian entrees.
My travelling companion enjoyed a fabulous seafood entree.
We will definitely go back if we are in Lisbon in the future.
Thanks for a great dining experience Antonio and Cristina!

We read about this wonderful cafe on Trip Advisor and it certainly lived up to it's excellent reviews. The atmosphere is very welcoming and intimate. The menu was fully explained to us in English as was the wine list. Our mains were excellent and well presented. We were offered desert which we shared and this was also very tasty. While we were there quite a few people came and the same service was offered to everyone with an explanation of the menu and the wine list. Definitely worth putting on your dining out list if in Lisbon. If they weren't closed on a Tuesday we would have gone back again for dinner to try other offerings from their menu. We actually had to ask if he had under charged us when we received our account!
