“Traditional Portuguese fare, attentive service, flavorful & fresh”

A surprising treat of authentic cuisine in a crowded shopping center right on Biscayne Blvd. Parking is tough (with rude, aggressive SoFla drivers), but once inside, it's a nice dining experience. Staff is very attentive (but does not speak fluent English, so you may need to ask a few ways to get the answer you're seeking). Ingredients obviously very fresh, flavorful and colorful. We went for a light late lunch and shared the octopus which was piping hot served in a small iron pot searing in oil with lots of browned/charred garlic and a few roasted red peppers. It was a generous appetizer portion, moist and flavorful. We shared a sopa of tomato base with fresh veggies and clam, mussel, shrimp and fish. The colors popped and flavors divine. We shared a chocolate mousse which was dense with chocolate bit served very cold (perhaps it had been prepped the day before and frozen?) so it was more the texture of a pudding than a mousse, but rich in chocolate flavor. Renee, the manager, came to the table to check on us and treated us to some port since it was our first time and he wanted us to return from Ft. Lauderdale. I'd definitely return and recommend. We had been enjoying route to the creperie in the same center and this was a welcome, surprise diversion and a great option amongst small chain outlets along Biscayne. I see why they're celebrating 25 years in business.

Tried Old Lisbon in Sunny Isles for the first time and was very pleased. The food is well prepared, tasty and authentic. During the week it offers luncheon specials which are truly a bargain (though this seems to be a well kept secret.) Entrees with either soup or salad run about $17.00, and they offer quite a variety of dishes which are quite large. I had a seafood soup with a wonderful broth made from tomatoes, peppers and onions, with clams, shrimp, mussels, calamari and fish. My wife had a dish made from bacalao and it too was delicious. The chef knows what he is doing, and does it very well. Service was a little casual at lunch time, and there is room for improvement in this area. Dessert were very impressive. We will definitely be returning soon to try other items on the special lunch menu.

Our waitress was very attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant, but food was simply ok. Just underwhelmed.

Food is delicious, place is pleasant and servicing people are gentle. The only problem is parking the car... :/

Good food, excellent service and good prices. Big portions. One portion may serve two people for sure.
