I was at Harlem on a Friday night and using a discount. We were keen on trying some of the traditional southern dishes of the States and we were aware that this restaurant would probably serve theses dishes with their own twist. I have to say, the waiter was super nice and helpful but the food was bland, and honestly... More

Went to this restaurant for my birthday for the first time. Had the opportunity to buy one of their online voucher promotions and it was so disappointing. Over expensive, most of the plates ordered had exaggerated salt/pepper/piri piri which can all destroy any good dish (if it was ever a good dish). Desserts were another disappointment, poor poor poor. For... More

Talking of Harlem is like talking of Jamaica. Fun, music, relaxation and drinks is what we can expect from this restaurant and bar where we can start the night before go to Bairro Alto or just enjoy a drink.

The restaurant is located in a beautiful building in Lisbon, but the interior decoration was poor, with too much light, and I didn’t find why they called it Harlem, not even the music, the same music all night, I was wondering why they were paying the DJ. The food offer was small, and the quality was low, I really don’t... More

The opening of this restaurant/pub was the talk of the town in Lisbon. Since I've been to the USA, I've been longing for the southern comfort food and so I was thrilled when I heard that Harlem was opening in my city. It promised southern USA food and a nice atmosphere, with jazz and blues as a backdrop for your... More

A look on american soul food. Great food: the huge fish sandwiche, the livers and the pumpkin cheesecake, are my favorites. The bar is not at the same level of the kitchen: the champagne was not ready, they didn't have some juices, or had partially... The music is very commercial for what the concept may induce. But the food is... More

The food is different (south of USA style), very good (my fish was a little bit salty, but that's all), the place it's great, but I felt invisible, no one looked to see if something was needed, even when I was trying to call someone. The bill came mistaken, they need to practice! But the food... it's awesome!

Thank Ana B
