“Fine cooking in a nice spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We phoned to reserve a table and were nicely surprised to be adressed in our mother tongue. The lady was charming and reserved us a nicely located table for two. We chose the set menu, at 36 euros, and did not regret it one minute. We were happily surprised by the food worth a star in the Michelin, the female chef was definitively in a great day. The interior is design, so go for the food even if you don' t like minimalist decoration (by Porsche). Only negative point, the wine list on the I-pad, but they advise well.

“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We had dinner at Avenue the first night of trip to Europe, and 22 days later (after visiting several cointries) we returned to Lisbon and ate there again for our final meal in Europe. The food (seared ahi, grilled octopus, rack of lamb, etc.) was excellent, and their knowledge and selection of of local wines was excellent as well. The staff is outstanding.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

Great location and plenty of promise but somehow the whole experience didn't quite deliver. Some pretensions to fine dining, though the quality of the dishes and prices not at that level; some things very good, some rather underwhelming. Decent option in the area and was far from full when we visited, but not worth a lengthy trip

“Both highlights and disappointments”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2013

A classy looking restaurant with good views over the tree lined Avenida.
Highlights
Waitress spoke English and was very helpful
Some of the food was delicious and flavour combinations worked well e.g Tuna
Smart surroundings
Disappointments
Wine waiter provided poor advice and suggested a wine that did not suit our food and was of very ordinary quality
Service was inattentive at times wine and water not replenished
Very ordinary sweets.

We would not return as there are many better restaurants within the area

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

As stated, this was fine dining and a pleasant surprise since the hotel chose for us. , It has a nice modern and very good service and excellent food. I would find it hard to criticise anything. All in all a greta finish to a tough vacation.
