Description: With a superb view of the Tagus river and its surroundings, Le Chat is, without question, a privileged spot. Door to door with Lisbon's most visited museum, the National Museum of Ancient Art, Le Chat's reputation has no borders. Known for its cocktails, Le Chat also has a quality offer food wise with its tapas and main dishes for your enjoyment. Our concept (Everyday Life with a Twist) is reflected throughout our menu, as it shows on our house cocktails like Cherry (Gin Mare, cherry tomato and basil) or our Sweet Potato Crisps. Come and enjoy an early evening cocktail, a lunch with a fantastic view or even a pre disco lounge environment. Perfect, every part of the day...

I ate lunch here (seeking shelter from the sun) while on a conference trip to Lisbon in September 2019. I had only one dish, and one glass of wine, but enjoyed my meal. Service was attentive, too. My food dish was the house tuna sandwich, on bread from Madeira. It was good, although the Madeiran bread it a bit tough, so some mandhandling is required. The Portugese rose wine I had with it, though, was excellent, and extremely welcome on such a hot day. (I wasn't told what the wine was, so couldn't write that down, I'm afraid). The restaurant has fantastic views over the river Tagus, so go on a day when the weather is good.

If you are still around Lisbon, you must come back for dinner at sunset, John. You'll be mesmerized with the views and get a taste of more portuguese flavours. ;)

Had a great night at Le Chat. Dinner with 18 business colleagues and we all had a great time. Location is lovely, food was great, staff very helpful and friendly. Value for money was really good as well. I honestly can't think of anything more they could have done better. Highly recommended

We ate here the first night of our stay in Lisbon, and it seemed really nice, the staff friendly and accommodating. We sat outside, with a view of the river (although, to be honest, it was mostly shipping and industrial units, but still...) and the food was excellent. Our only problem was that there's actually no light outside, no candles on the table at all, so I couldn't actually SEE what i was eating, but it was still delicious. We tried to return on the last night of our stay, on a Sunday, but there was pounding music coming from inside and a DJ set up. We somehow felt we might be a bit old for youthful vibe and decided not to sample it a second night. A pity, really -- I was looking forward to that squid dish again.

Dear Senlin, thank you very very much for your visits (both of them) and feedback (which we deeply value). We offer different kinds of ambiances and events on different nights, and you can always be on top of it either through our facebook or our instagram pages, so you can know ahead about it. We're glad that you enjoyed your first night in Lisbon in our terrace and will look into the lightning issue. We're even happier to ear you tried to come back because you loved us so much. We'll be waiting for a new visit whenever you come back to Lisbon. ;)

I was a bit surprised by this place when I first arrived. It is entirely glass and has a deck that over looks the water, docks, and bridge. They had musicians playing and the vibe seemed more like a beach bar than a restaurant. I got a nice table by the railing so I could watch the sunset. I had the duck which was amazing and the chocolate cake (Pictured) which was one of the best I’ve ever had. The drinks are generous and the staff very friendly and efficient.

Definitely go here, bring a coat, and no need to dress up!

Oh boy, NDMorrison, you were definitely in for a treat! Our restaurant/bar prides itself for been the best place in Lisbon to chill out and enjoy the beautiful sunset and ambiance, while sipping a signature cocktail and grabbing something to eat. You're welcome to come back any time!

We chose this cafe/restaurant as it has a great view over the Alcantara Docks, the River Tagus, the 25 de Abril Bridge & Cristo Rei.

Unfortunately, we found the service of a lower quality than we expected:

- The service was erratic especially on arrival.
- There was a mistake on the bill in the restaurant's favour which we had to challenge.
- Two out of the three dishes ordered were tasty, the third, very poor.
- The whole restaurant in need of refurbishment / renovation. Chairs uncomfortable, tables old, floor coverings unattractive.
- The lavatories a disgrace and unhygenic. No toilet paper and so soap, and this is unacceptable, especially in a restaurant.

Overall, it was very disappointing and we will not return.

Our guest from Brazil was visiting Lisbon for the first time. We were embarrassed.

Dear Balra, we are sorry to hear you had such an experience in our restaurant/bar. It's quite uncommon and we will surely take notice on everything you said to see how and where we can improve. Hope you do get to give us another chance to prove to you we can do much better! ;)
