We thought this place could become one of our favourites restaurants in Lisbon, but no. Some quick points: excellent atmosphere, good service and nice food with some good choice of wines. The place is a bit expensive but price/quality/service is kept. What's the problem? After the 3rd time we were at the restaurant, we had each time some small table-entrances more on our invoice. The last time we were with a group and had 2 additional bottles more on the invoice. This problem was also already reported by some of our friends in the past. My advise, check your bill very carefully.

Once inside, you quickly realise this is a very special place. Food is excellent, service friendly, helpful and efficient. Every dish was special, with the wines reasonably priced and good quality. Not to be missed! The atmosphere is great, too!

However, this restaurant has good Portuguese food and pleasant atmosphere, especially if you are seated in the courtyard. Some starters (oysters weren't good) can be skipped. Good overall impression, but nothing spectacular.

During our recent visit to Lisbon, Portugal, we met a couple of ladies who were raving about their phenominal dinner at A Travessa. We are forever grateful for this recommendation as our dinner was absolutely amazing!! The staff was incredible and the quality and presentation of the food was extraordinary and beyond any of our expectations!! We were looking for a genuine Portuguese restaurant ... our wish came true!! My mother had never been to a Michelin Star restaurant so this was truly a special treat. From the moment we sat down until it was sadly time to leave, we were in awe of the spectaular food, service and ambience. Don't miss this opportunity for a memorable meal!!!

This was our third visit to the restaurant. As before, the food and service was excellent. The variety and quality of starters brought to the table is always the highlight. The pork and clams were particularly good.

The one negative point was that we were given a table overlooking the courtyard, but this was where people were allowed to smoke. We weren't asked if we wanted a smoking/non-smoking table, so it came as a surprise when the people at the next table lit up. Where we sat was an enclosed space as there was a screen between the courtyard and the table, so the reek was inescapable.
