Concierge recommended it to us, because we were tired and did not want to go downtown. That about sums it up. Dark atmosphere, highly old fashioned ambiance. Food was OK. Next time we'll take a taxi down-town.

Went here on a Sunday evening as our chosen restaurants were closed. The service was slow - the 2 waiters by us seem to spend most of the evening arguing with each other. They forgot our 2nd round of drinks and kept us waiting for the food. On arrival the food was so disappointing as it was basic cafe food and not what you expect at restaurant prices. They charged for the bread and butter without telling us the would be a charge - then the bill came. Just the total - no breakdown of items ordered - a ploy to get away with all the extras they charge. We asked for breakdown which included €9 for a G &T! Avoid this place at all costs!

We (2 couples) had dinner at Pabe at the recommendation of the concierge at the Tiara Park Hotel. Pabe is very much like a British pub but has two menus: tourist and local. My wife got roast beef and the rest of us ordered off the local menu. Even though they had an English translation of the menu the waiter took the time to answer our questions with very good descriptions of each item. The entrees were excellent. One of the highlights was the local soup which two of us ordered and liked so much the waiter brought more and we shared it with the others. The same thing happened when two of us ordered dessert which was also excellent.

This restaurant was a nice surprise. A bit more expensive than the other restaurants in the neighborhood but the service is really unbeatable and one cannot get disappointed here. Furthermore, not everything is so expensive, there are some affordable choices (some mains starts at 15€). Food was very good as well and the list of wines too, some also affordable, some good wines (bottles) starting at 16€. Couvert=3euros. Atmosphere is a bit old fashion but that makes part of the game. Highly recommended.

My sister-in-law and myself were on a city break at the beginning of October and the Pabe was recommended to us by the staff at the Marquis de Pombal. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and we even got a free drink at the end of our evening. If I remember correctly, 2 of the staff were called Carlos and Luis. They were very charming and helpful with the menu. I opted for the sea bass which was delicious. It is not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and our meal was well worth the cost. The Pabe is a bit like a British pub inside and is very warm and welcoming. Excellent ambience. We would definitely go back again if we get the chance to revisit Lisbon.
