Description: Tipical Homemade Food from a Swiss Chef: Best described as "Alpine Cuisine" Adu Wahlen's dishes are refreshing in the summer time and heartwarming in the cooler season. Rosti and Spatzli are always to be found along with Cheese Fondue and Raclette for aficionados. Seasons play a great role in the choice of ingredients used with influences from french, german and italian cuisine. The menu is therefore ideal for many palates from vegetarians to meat lovers.

This place was great. The food was delicious, the decor was very cute and the owner was so nice and friendly. He speaks at least French, English, Portuguese and German so ordering was very easy.

The restaurant was a bit far from our hotel and involved lots of walking up hill but it was worth it. We started with a salad with smoked trout and rocket and endive with a horseradish dressing and then had the cheese fondue for 2. The prices were very reasonable and it was one of the most enjoyable meals we had in Lisbon. I wish we were here longer so I could try more of their menu. Highly recommended. It was worth the trek.

Much of the food in Portugal is very similar this restaurant provided a nice change to the norm. Food was tasty and varied, the service was friendly and attentive and the restaurant had a nice look and feel to it. It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth the effort to seek out. With the food reasonably priced it is definitely worth visiting.

Had great expectations after reading through most reviews here. Service was very good, table was also good, well decorated and with good starters and beer selection. Main dish could have been better, with the braised meat a little bit touching the overcooked. Overall experience was a good one but was expecting some great Swiss specialities with amazing quality. Don't get me wrong, I was overall satisfied but had somehow higher expectations...Maybe just me!

Nice place. Good service below the average food. We had a raclette. An onion soup and a fondue. Too much cheese. The raclette was ok the fondue was so so.
