We were so glad to have found this on TripAdvisor. It was a short walk from our hotel - Lapa Palace. As with many places in Lisbon the plain exterior hides a beautiful interior with a great atmosphere. As it was a warm summer evening everyone ate outside in the courtyard. We were glad we made a reservation as it was full by the time we left. Friendly service. Interesting menu which we all enjoyed. It was nice to be offered different types of wine to try before selecting wine by the glass - this was also good value. The dessert plate is very beautiful but we also recommend the rich chocolate cake. A lovely relaxing evening.

This place was really wonderful; great interior, friendly waiters; beautiful.
The wine very good; picked by the waiter- all Portuguese; high quality wines.

Food was good, but no surprises- they want to be innovative, it seems; but doesn´t really get there. Taste and quality was not bad at all; but they miss the "extra".

We had a great and romantic dinner anyhow; it was definetely worth the visit.

So glad we found this restaurant on our last night in Lisbon. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely. We had dinner in the courtyard, i'd recommend making a reservation.

From beginning to end there was good food and smiling staff, creating the perfect evening. We had the meat, and you have to try the "sweet things" dessert. Good size portions and reasonable prizes. (Seen with Norwegian eyes..)
Will definitely return!!!

Hard to find but incredible venue the Press Club oozes character and you can imagine the intrigue discussed between these walls over the years. Wonderful character interior. The staff were amazing including Jose the local German supporting manager 1-7 remember the game was being shown on a 1980s portable! The food was superb the sweet platter at the end of the meal was like nothing I have seen before! Please don't miss it!!
