Very nice and staff great
The food and the presentation was excellent. The grilled octopus was delicious and our friendly waiter, who also spoke some English, was a real professional and his suggestions were spot on.
Easy going, light and friendly restaurant. Clearly wants to hit the big hotel clientele I think. Was our last night and looked for restaurant without catching metro to centre. This was ok, I had octopus salad followed by hot shrimps with sweet potatoes chips. My partner had poached eggs with peas and sausage followed by steak and sweet potato chips. All were ok for the price but main problem was everything, yes every dish had loads of sweet potato. The shrimps weren’t in lovely hot sizzling garlicky oil but sweet potato soup, same for the eggs and sausage. The salad and steak also had rounds of sweet potato piles in them..... nice friendly staff.
The food is tasty, well prepared, innovative. Overall a bit pricey for the portions. The only negative I would like to mention is that all the staff is too young to understand that children are picky. Peas with boiled egg and chorizo is a Portuguese classic but they make it a very soft almost crude egg and knowing it was for a child they should have mentioned it. After having to order a stake and fries with white rice for the child that didn’t “loved” the crude egg, the white rice came with grated cheese on top and again no one mentioned it nor was it on the menu. We had to send it back to take the cheese off. So if you go with children be extra careful as they won’t, and if you are vegan beware that white rice has cheese on top! Go figure... all in all just too expensive for what it is.
Lovely little restaurant with superb food. The fried green beans and prawn curry were amazing. Will be back when next in Lisboa.
The staff were very nice and accommodating to our questions. The food was delicious, we got octopus with vegetables, steak and tuna taco. We loved everything we had.
We were warmly welcomed, the waiter suggested some dishes and explained a lot about Portuguese cuisine. They indeed have the best chocolate fondant in Lisbon.
Very tasty and you could see that it was prepared with love
The concept is great, and quality of the food is also great. Would suggest speeding up service and attentiveness to guest needs- e.x. suggesting another glass of wine when noticing empty glasses while serving the main dishes). The menu is not big and would benefit from a wider selection or rotating dishes.
Nice and the best restaurant❤️Mãe - Cozinha com Amor

Rated highly that didn’t live up to expectation. Food was mediocre. Wouldn’t return nor suggest it to someone if they were visiting Lisbon. Ambience was also just okay.Mãe - Cozinha com Amor

Hi Gail, Thanks for the feedback! Glad you enjoyed. Hope to see you again. Love, Mãe.
The best meal we’ve had in Spain and Portugal. We had the Rabbit Samosas and Garlic Fried Shrimp for starters. Both were in excellent, particularly the Rabbit which was amazing. Mains were the Hamburger and Grilled Octopus with Vegetables. Both were delicious. The wine list is excellent - the wines by the glass were exceptional. And finally the staff were friendly and professional. Loved our meal hereMãe - Cozinha com Amor
Hi Mike, At Mãe, we aim to please. We're glad you enjoyed. We have a new wine branded Mãe. You should try it. Hope to have you with us for dinner again. Thanks. Best, Mãe.
This is without a doubt one of the top 10 restaurants I've visited, the food was fantastic, the staff friendly & informative, the atmosphere was relaxed and it was exceptional value for money.
Excellent food and service at reasonable prices. Nice wine list. The grilled octopus was superb and the Picanha steak was tender and nicely spiced. Also shared their really good empada (piglet pie) as a starter. Highly recommend Mae!
This was our favorite restaurant in Lisbon when we visited in March 2019. I thought I had done a review then but it appears not! My bad as this was the best food and experience we had in Lisbon and we had many. Măe, or mother in Portuguese, is the perfect gourmet neighborhood restaurant. Service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. We are heading back to Lisbon in a few weeks and ate at Măe again. Just as delightful as in March!
A very nice Portuguese home cooking restaurant. I had the picanha and it was just perfect.
Best meal of my entire time in Portugal. The atmosphere is perfect and every dish we got was truly I’m unbelievably good. Be sure to get the chocolate cake!
Very nice restaurant, friendly staff, delicious food. Been there twice, both good. Recommended
AMAZING food and a very accommodating kitchen! :)
Best lamb chops I've had so far! Really well made food, nice staff. Situated a bit away from the central tourist district, but well worth the walk!
What a great way to spend our last evening in Lisbon. Our table of 9 was seated in a square, and the complimentary cheese tray and olives was a nice start to the delicious food we had. The owner was lovely, explaining the various Portuguese phrases on our placemat that only a mother would say! Great ambiance. Highly recommend this gem of a place!
Great restaurant with a family flair. Waiter were very helpful and the food was delicious. Can only recommend
Friendly????unpretentious ????delicicous????great value????
A wonderful small restaurant off the beaten path in a residential area of the city. The cod dish was wonderful and my husband's steak was good. Service was excellent!
I really enjoyed how engaging. pleasant and patient the staff were (I asked a lot of questions about the food). I loved their idea of guests sending their Moms pics to be put up on their Mom wall, that is incredible. The food was also really good and in very generous portions. I wish I had discovered it earlier then I would have enjoyed more meals there before my trip ended. I highly recommend it.
Feel of a neighborhood restaurant with great food. Comfy and friendly.
Our trip to Mae met all expectations; it was delicious, had a nice ambiance, and delivered both fine dining and wine at a VERY reasonable price! The shrimp bras and a type of beef (whose name I definitely cannot remember) were both so good my husband and I did a “taste swap”. They were both so good we had to share! I’d definitely recommend!
Excellent, friendly service and great quality food at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend.
We were welcomed warmly, the service was amazing, and the wine was excellent - they only sell Portugese wines which I really support.
Delicious food and service that will do everything to make you happy. Very affordable prices. I highly recommend!
great food and service
Great if a little quiet for a girls group dinner. One of the tastier dinners we’ve had and really reasonably priced. Also some of the better service we’ve had in Portugal: attentive and friendly but not hovering or creepy. Loved it!
Good service and nice food
Beautiful food well cooked and presented and very attentive staff with really good advice, would go again if back in Lisbon
Great food and wine in a cozy neighborhood spot!!
