    Excellent old-fashioned restaurant. The food was really good, following the tradition but reinvented in a modern way. What I appreciated more was however the great service, old style, with really well prepared waiters and sommelier. Highly recommended.

    Truly outstanding. A very old-fashioned paneled dining room, starched linens, and formal service by multiple waiters. Everything was perfect. It was expensive but the fish and lamb were delicious and there were many elegant touches like a complimentary small appetizer and lovely chocolates with the check. A great end to our Lisbon trip.

    In an effort to make this short and to the point: PROS FOOD - Excellent All of our dishes were presented beautifully and the flavor was truly lovely. Someone in the kitchen loves what they do. Ambiance is pretty masculine - dark woods, reds, etc. indicative of a mans club. Not our thing but OK. A bit dated. Music was a good volume and a pleasant array of songs which went well with the theme. CONS: When we arrived we waited in the foyer and a man (maitre d?) peeked around the door from the restaurant - not wanting to fully commit to coming in and asked hesitantly “Can I help you?” We (my friend and I) looked at each other and laughed and said “yes please, we have a reservation.” He seemed confused. We are both women so maybe he did not understand why we were there. We were first seated in the front room with the bar but the odor of cigarettes was awful and he mentioned this was the smoking room so we asked to be moved. (Apparently you can smoke in here - ick). We were moved to the back room and they turned on the lights to accommodate us. The service began which was nice and appropriate a bit overdone but OK if you want to do that, we will play along. But this is where it got weird. A new waiter appeared and must have been assigned to us. He became smitten with my friend and between weird suggestions of what he could do for her and serving our courses, then literally standing 3 feet from the table and watch us eat only ask a second after we took our first bite if we were enjoying our meal... and then never leaving.. it was pretty comical. You also have to understand we were the only people in the restaurant so him standing there staring at us was really odd to say the least. I could go on about the conversation he kept having with us and his insistence that we take a picture of the dessert which we had no intention of doing and had to actually remove a phone from a bag, turn it on and take a picture to make him happy and we were hoping he would just go away.... but Im not sure Im allowed to write that many words. SUMMARY: Food great - Service unnecessarily overdone. We will not be back and oh, SMOKING? Inside? Really? Thats pretty awful.

    Wonderful ambiance, excellent food and friendly and attentive white glove service. Pabe is superb and was simply a delight in every way. We would highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.

    Pabe Was the first restaurant we tried in Lisbon. And I can’t imagine another one being better. The service was outstanding, and the food rivaled it. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fine dining.

    The food was amazing, the staff attentive, the cost of the market fish on the bill at the end of the night, shocking! But overall would recommend as a location for a very special occasion

    Pabe is a terrific restaurant, the welcome on arrival was very friendly, the staff were efficient but not intrusive, the food was not only delicious but also very attractively presented accompanied by our favourite Portuguese white wine - Pinto. We were quite early for Lisbon and as the evening progressed the restaurant filled up and the atmosphere was relaxed with a quiet buzz. All in all, I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more highly. We will be back!
