“Amazing restaurant ”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

Me and my girlfriend were looking for an international cuisine restaurant and found Old Lisbon hidden on the streets of Sibiu.

Despite appearances, this is a not too expensive place that offers delicious portugese dishes and more importantly great portugese (and south african) wines.

We had mushroom soup ( which was served nicely decorated) and each a seafood dish (spicy trout with hash browns and baked bass with garlic potatoes respectively). A very friendly and knowledgeable manager named Cristi recommended the perfect accompaning wine (a local sort).

All in all it was a great dining experience (complete with mostly portugese fado with a few pop songs in spanish - unfortunately) which left us wanting something similar in our home town.

“Excellent service and food ”
Reviewed August 4, 2014 via mobile

We recently spent two nights in Sibiu and Old Lisbon is one of our new favorites there. If you like great service, good food -then Old Lisbon is a must! One of the most important assets the restaurant has is its staff!!!And the owner should be proud of this - some of the most friendly people we have encountered.Our waiter was Very attentive with our kids and he made an enjoyable evening that much better.

“Excellent! Food,service and ambiance! Pleasant escape from the busy main square.”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

The place is not far from the main touristic area, but we were better off from the buzz of the main touristic square.
Right away my family and friends felt relaxed in the friendly atmosphere of the restaurant.
I was happy to see again an elegantly appointed restaurant with withe crisp and clean table cloths and napkins ( very rare these days)
Menu was simple but yet sophisticated with great choices from traditional Portuguese cuisine(had to try the Bacalhao) and international cuisine( foie gras terrine home made was to die for)
Overall was an excellent experience and the food and wine selection had a great value for the money!
Wait staff were excellent, very professional and discrete.
I will definitely visit Old Lisbon again when I will be in Sibiu

“Attentive service, cozy/upscale atmosphere & delightful food!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

Visited here in June for my last dinner in Sibiu and had a memorable experience. The atmosphere was elegant and comfortable, and the service was ultra attentive, without being intrusive. This was the first time I had a napkin placed on my lap before dinner! I was wowed! Everytime out plates or drinks were near empty out server was right there to refill us. I highly recommend ordering the red wine sangria! It is so sweet and refreshing, filled with fresh fruit; the perfect accompaniment to a hot summer's night (one pitcher won't be enough). I also won't forget the Portuguese style Foie Gras, marinated in port wine, it makes the perfect appetizer. We also had a Portuguese style Seafood Paella with rice, that came out in an impressive copper hot pot, that we had table-side for easy refills. Overall terrific experience. The owners were on site and were sure to ask us how our experience was before we left! Don't hesitate to go! Would be the perfect date spot ;)
