Thanks to its outstanding rating I went with a business friend on a whim on a Tuesday evening. From the moment we walked in we knew we had made a fabulous choice. The staff were very friendly walking us through the menu and firming up on choices of wine. The wine list had some fine choices at both ends of... More

A complimentary glass of fizz is a great introduction to any restaurant and things got even better as the evening progressed. The food was lovely; the black pork was absolutely delicious and the duck wrap (looked a little like a 'spring roll') was very tasty. One big regret from the evening was not choosing the selection of sweets (Coisas Doces)... More

Clube is on a tiny street seemingly in the middle of nowhere, but boy is it worth finding (and our taxi did). Service was terrific. Food even moreso. A genuine TA discovery.

We had heard mixed reviews about this restaurant but decided to see for ourselves and were pleased we did. We took a taxi from our hotel off Avenida Liberdade as I don't think we would have got there on our own. Lovely building with interconnecting rooms - we were in quite a large room as there were 6 of us... More

I would strongly recommend this restaurant for any foodie tourists. Great food, really excellent service. We had a tasty roasted aubergine and a delicate mackerel ceviche to start and then salt cod and a pungent black sausage risotto for our main courses. Plus a delicate papaya desert. Our waitress spoke perfect English and was positive, enthusiastic and professional. Great advice... More

Our first dinner in Lisbon and it was not a disappointment, very friendly staff and delicious food. We did need help finding our way round the menu but all our choices were wonderful.

Probably one of my best dinner in Lisbonne. The restaurant does not look attractive when you see it from the outside, but when you cross the door and get inside, you are already in love. The waitress welcomed us with a glass of champagne and brought us to our table. The menu is given inside an envelop, as if it... More

They couldn't host 7 people when we walked passed the first day, so we made a booking for the next evening. The setting and design was pleasant, we were greeted with sparkling wine upon arriving and received a small gift when leaving. The service was good but, unfortunately, the food was pretty plain compared to other places around the city.

We were very pleased that a friend recommended this restaurant to us. We made reservations well ahead of our arrival in Lisbon. When the waitress first came to the table she asked all six of our names and used them throughout the meal. The service and the food was excellent. WE all received thank you gifts when we left.
