    I had a great evening at this tiny little restaurant. The staff was extremely welcoming and helpful and the atmosphere was very cozy (they moved the restaurant to another space, a few meters away because of Covid-19 regulations, but it was great too). The dishes were also very tasteful for a fair price. To end the evening, you can have a pleasant walk in the surroundings after dinner.

    No proactive service by the waiters, we had to call them every time we needed something. It's a tapas restaurant but they only serve / cook a dish at a time, therefore dishes came one by one which is not good for a restaurant where it's suppose to share meals. They forgot about our order so prawns took almost 1h to the point we had finished dinner when they arrived. Cutlery and glasses were stacked when we arrived to the table. All dishes except the pork stew were not tasty at all. Overall not a good experience, will not go back.

    The main staff were very polite and helpful, and the atmosphere was good. However, we waited for our food for nearly two hours and in the end only four out of six dishes were served. We had to leave and go eat somewhere else.

    Every time I go to Lisbon I try to eat there. It is nice, the ambient is cool and the dishes amazing.

    Very nice restaurant with modern decor and friendly service. The food was very good and original (a kind of revisited portuguese classics with a modern touch). Good address in a fantastic neighbourhood!

    It's a nice try to create a new restaurant atmosphere. The long tables are ok but the seating on wooden stools is a challenge, especially if you want a nice dinner evening there. That is particularly true for the "kids table" which the crew offered us first. The food is ok but not really outstanding. The service team was friendly and trying hard to get things on the table. So hard that the meal was basically over in less than one hour. My wife didn't find it romantic...

    The food was excellent. The place is really nice and cozy. The prices are a little expensive for what is the average in Lisbon but value for price I would still say that is very good. The only point to improve is that they accept reservations via The Fork and we went late in the night but one of the waitress didn’t look happy that we went. So this broke a little the atmosphere as we felt that we needed to hurry and leave. If they don’t want to have reservations after 23.00 probably is better to block this or change the opening times.

About the restaurant

A Petiscaria Ideal localiza-se num dos bairros históricos de Lisboa: Madragoa.

Espaço informal e acolhedor, a sua decoração remete-nos para o ambiente de taberna dos tempos modernos. Mesas corridas, bancos de madeira, azulejos desiguais a lembrar outras épocas e antigos utensílios de cozinha dão o mote para um ambiente castiço e descomprometido onde sabe bem ir ficando.

A privilegiar a cozinha portuguesa, é nos tão apreciados petiscos que ganhou fama. Não tem ementa fixa, porque diariamente os petiscos variam. Mas será sempre uma agradável surpresa e uma reconfortante viagem gastronómica.

Deixe-se seduzir e desafie os seus amigos para agradáveis momentos à mesa. A Petiscaria Ideal espera por si.
