We went to this restaurant as it was one of the few places open on Sunday near our hotel. It was recommended by our hotel and i wonder if someone from the restaurant pays the front desk to recommend it because the food was very average. What shocked me the most was that right after we ordered our meals, they placed a bread basket on our table that included some packaged breadsticks and some very dry stale bread and so we choose not to eat them and when we received our Bill there was a 6 Euro charge and when i asked about it, I was told it was for the bread which i did not eat. They refused to remove the charge.

We were a party of six and arrived for our 8:00 reservation. After about 30 minutes, we received our drink order and 1 and 1/2 hours later we received our first course. One of our party complained about the delay to the manager, but it was another 45 minutes before we received our entrée. The food was excellent, but we have not had such poor service in any other restaurant of this price range.

We had a very nice meal but it was expensive by Lisbon standards. It is nice inside the restaurant but the area itself isn't that pleasant.

I thought that it was hard to find the place and when we called for directions we were just told that we should go to the train station (Cais do Sodre) and look for it - so we spent about 15 mins walking around aimlessly and accosting people in broken Portuguese.

The food was very good and service was great - the server took time to talk about the dishes patiently with us. I'm not sure that we would go back though despite this.

The view is nice, but the tables outside didn't really look that appealing to me, there seemed to be a lot of rubbish on the footpath.

Food, service, enviroment, location. All great. After two or three diners they will know your name and you will be treated as at home.
One of the times, as it was raining, an umbrella was offered to walk safely to the car and home. It's about details.

Please do try the food that is marked with Mozambique, these are the best and really makes the name of the restaurante (Ibo is a Mozambique island).

Were looking for an interesting food experience and we found it here. Had a great meal, perhaps because we both chose the Moçambique specialities that the restaurant is known for. So I'm sure, if this is what you want, this is definitely what yo will get.
