“Excellent New Year dinner 2012/13!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We celebrated New Years Eve at Bica do Sapato and had a superbe evening. Excellent food and professional, friendly service! We booked in advance from abroad. You can not make a reservation direct via internet, but they answered promptly on our email and the booking worked. Interestingly, even though the restaurant is big, the taxi driver had difficulties to find it. There is no visible sign with the name of the restaurant on the building.

Negatives? The music from the speakers was too loud for our liking. And their webpage is absolutely the worst I have ever seen. Is it a joke?

“Good food and sight although lacks the adequate service”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The food is good, typical portuguese with a international twist that turn it in an easy liking food. The facilities have a great design, and a sight over the Tagus river that is really wonderfull.

In hot days the outside balcony is for sure a must go

The only bad thing was the service, that doesn't match the overall quality of the restaurant.

“Trendy spot in Lisbon”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

This has been one of the trendiest places to have a meal in Lisbon. A good menu, with fish being one of the highlights. Good wine list and some great desserts make for the rest. The service is good, with some nice details and very professional. The view of the river adds a nice touch for both locals and tourists. It's just not the best place for those who don't want to be seen.

“Modern & OK”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Visited on a Friday night and although it was gone 8pm was still very quiet. The attention of the waiters started off well but dropped off as they got busier.
Nice surroundings, and can imagine nice views in the summer.
We were originally told this was 3 restaurants, Gourmet, japanese and a cafeteiria, but it is now all in one.
Nothing in the food was poor and was enjoyable for the price, but too many other restaurants in Lisbon to want to return. Just nothing really stood out here.
However turn left out of the premises and about 50 yds up the road is a very good small wine shop that sold some really unusual items, including different coloured pasta, and even Marmite !!.

“cool Lisbon isn't bad”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

Brought there by a local. I really enjoyed the experience. Not cheap though. But food gave me a good taste of local cusine and location isn't banal. Professional staff. Not particularly friendly, more cool stile. Overall I spent a good time therefore my judgment is definitely positive.
