    Cozy little restaurant offers nice atmosphere and delicious food. They are a bit expensive. In some other restaurants you can get whole meal of octopus for 13€, but here you get only small tapas for the same price. Although I would still recommend.

    The restaurant serves a broad variety of Portuguese Tapas, which you can either eat by yourself or share with your friends or colleagues at the table. As starter we ordered the small selection of Portuguese sausages and cheese, and as ‘mains’ we ordered six different from the Tapas from the menu, one more delicious than the other. I personally liked most the combination and balancing of different flavours (e.g. the baked cheese was served with honey and rosemary). The owners were friendly, helpful when ordering food and had a good sense of humor. A Venda Lusitana is THE one restaurant which i would recommend my friends if they would travel to Lisbon.

    Good food. We paid 120€ for 6 tapas and 2 desserts. Good quality but not amazing value for what we paid. Would still recommend it.

    The waiter eat mly welcomes us and explains the type and style of menu. It’s. Tapas like menu, so the suggestion is to or 3-4 dishes for sharing (= caring). Wines can be had by the glass. Food was really delicious and definitely worth another visit.

    Amazing dinner last night. The food was exceptionally good following the suggestions we were given. Cod salat, octopus, pig cheeks and a glass of local wine which turned into a bottle. Wouldnt mind going here 2 days in a row.

    Excelent in all aspects. It could just be a bit more expedite in the service when the restaurant is fully occupied. But that is a minor thing amidst all the great food and friendly service by the owners.

    Very nice small local place. Lovely little quiet place. Just what I was looking for upon arrival in Lisbon. Delicious sheep and goat cheese tapas, and also pork cheeks.

    This place is a great find, only two minutes from Avenida metro. Superb cheese and meat dishes, and good wine. We particularly liked the pork cheeks - do not miss this! The young couple running this restaurant are absolutely charming and fully deserve their success.

    Small characterful and classy, not a restaurant, a tapas bar, everything was of an excellent quality, great service and hospitality. All the food and drinks were of a very good quality, and a great time was had by all. Thoroughly recommended, you will not be disappointed

    We were in Portugal for 2 weeks and went here on our last night. We had great food all trip, but this was the very best. Excellent food! We would go back again if ever there again.

    Portuguese style tapas were delicious. The portion size was perfect for sharing. The pork cheeks cooked in red wine melted in your mouth! Service was attentive but not intrusive.
