I’ve been coming to the restaurant for years. It’s been a go-to destination every time I’m in Lisbon. The food was good, the staff welcoming so the pilgrimage back was driven by memories as much as anything. But the service is very dismissive and they’re looking to scalp tourists. Bitoque is on the menu of the day - the tourist version comes on a plate with no sauce and you’re charged for sides, the actual version comes in an earthenware dish with sauce, steak, an egg and fries. Devise of the location, they’ll always be busy but I doubt people will be return.
I started going to Portugalia in 2013 and was so impressed by the simplicity and quality of the food that I made sure that I visited whenever in Lisbon but I have to say that the experience is no longer what it was. They no longer have a kids' menu. The bitoque has been downgraded beyond recognition. And, worst of all, my favourite, the pica pau is a shadow of what it was. It's so disappointing. I don't know if it's as a result of COVID-19 impact or measures but I'm really sad to say that I won't be back.
I don’t know why but the food is never piping hot when it arrives at the table. Restaurant was very quiet today- still happened. Chips were awful- had to send them back.
Great food, great location, nice staff
When we got there we were told the was no reservation under my name. However, since we arrived there quite early, they were able to accommodate us.
Excellent, value for money , nice staff would recommend
This resto has great location.Bad food and hopeless presentation..It needs a new chef. I dont need to write more except to say your evaluation system is very stupid and not focussed on food quality.
