Beautiful authentic Iberian restaurant with a lovely ambiance and friendly staff. Sit in or outside soaking up the sun or evening air on their steps. Only downside is that veg is in short supply🙁

Had a lovely meal here last weekend. We had an outside table which was great as the weather was being very kind for April in Lisbon. The food was very good - highly recommend the pork cheeks!

It was my birthday and we wanted a nice place but not too posh. This was just right - you could sit out on a terrace or inside in the cellar like interior. The tapas was great and the staff very friendly and good at telling stories. The waitress told us how each dish was made and how to eat... More

From the moment we walked in, Carlos made us feel welcomed. Carlos made our dining the most pleasurable experience in Lisbon. He was able to get us in without a reservation. There were three of us. We ordered paella for two; meat, fish, seafood. Best paella I've ever had. We also ordered suckling pig; prepared perfectly. Carlos is a great... More

Two years ago we had both lunch and dinner at Meson Andalusia with incredible service, value, and food. We loved it and recommended the restaurant to friends who were visiting a Lisbon. We met the charming owner who offered us complimentary port at the end of our dinner. It seems that the ownership has lost its focus and the food... More

Nothing to criticize about this restaurant. Very friendly welcome. Excellent service, and top quality food. We had a tapas menu and left ourselves in the hands of the chef. We ate so well that we couldn’t fit in a desert. The restaurant was fully booked out which is a further confirmation of the above. Wish we had more restaurants in... More

In a quiet street in Barrio Alto we found this beautiful restaurant with beautiful crystal and linen and an extensive menu of really delicious tapas washed down with a €16 bottle of vino verde perfectly chosen by the waiter. Very atmospheric cellar like building but the restaurant is at street level.Only drawback was the slightly sniff attitude when we arrived... More

Came here at the end of our holiday for a last meal after some other dire experiences. We had tapas dishes which were all incredible, the fois gras scallops were spectacular! Well worth a visit! Well priced food and great atmosphere. 5 stars!

The food is very good. The place and atmosphere are both fun. Service is also excellent. It's a bit expensive though.

Andalusian Cuisine in Travessa do Alecrim.

On your way from the Chiado hill to Cais do Sodre, you'll find Meson Andaluz in a restaured seventeenth-century building with brick arcades, where the tapas are the star.

The list of wines includes Spanish and Portuguese names, and the new list, Iberian and with some new names in it stands out for its quality and modernity, without losing the essence of the traditional flavors.

Be it on our terrace or in the interior lighted by a small light, the atmosphere invites a degustation of a tapas, raciones and charcuterie's festival.
