Went there for lunch on a weekday. 90% was suit and ties, but still a very relaxed ambiance.
Try to seat outside if possible, the views are amazing.
Service was efficient, food was good quality and not too expensive. I think deserts were very expensive, but read they are really good, but that, i didn't try.
One of the best Gaspacho's I ever had. Really smooth and tasty.
Good wine list with fair prices.
Easy to park (big plus for me). i will definitely go back.

By the Tagus river this is an excellent restaurant, with a terrific terrace where you can have just an espresso. The food is very good, and the deserts are to die for. With a special decor referring Darwins writings and scientific discoveries, this one of the best riverside spots in Lisbon.

The perfect place to have a drink, see the views, watch birds and Tejo river, rest and eat. Eat is important in a restaurant!! Italian-fusion-portuguese base: a nice way to start.

A "must go" place in Lisbon! Enjoy and have fun!

This restaurant is located on one of the most advanced health research centre in the world, Instituto Champalimaud, in Lisbon, just by rive Tagus.
The location could hardly be better, near the historical Belem area in Lisbon, with a great balcony just over the river Tagus. Great place, great location, great view.
The foot is good, but the menu does not include a single Portuguese traditional option. I went there with a foreign business partner, and I couldn't suggest him any Portuguese food! This is very odd, considering that many customers are foreign and that Portugal has great food!
Service is good.
Location is great.
Plenty of sightseeing to do, just a short walk away. Go there if you are in the neighbourhood.
