I was looking for a different place for lunch with a client, and wanted some peace and quiet. Since this had popped up on some previous searches, and the customer was up for some meat - it became a natural choice. Note that a 3* rating, may seem sub par - but it's a little influenced by the price range... More

I´ve been at Volver a few times in the past years, sometimes months apart, and it never dissapoints. The menu always has a few changes for the people who want to try new things, but the quality of the meat is a constant. As referred, possibly the best steak around, and the best steak I've eaten.

As a meat lover I always enjoy a good steak. Luckily I've tried many of the dishes in the menu and I'm never disappointed! Having visited most of the best steakhouses in Portugal I believe without a doubt that this one is best meat restaurant in Lisbon! I also recommend the more ellaborated dishes, such the Beef Wellington or the... More

Usually I am not a meat type person ,especially for red meat. However the steak of Volver changed my mind about red meat.

This is a very nice restaurant. Service was really good, waiters were kind and gave us good advice for cocktails, food and wine. It's an Argentinian steakhouse, so go there if you want great meat. Nice atmosphere. Extensive wine menu. I would definitely return. It's a bit out of Lisbon center. Thanks to the staff who ran out in the... More

Excellent decoration, awesome pieces of meat, serving only matured meat (different kinds). Everything is different on this steakhouse. I mean it! If you want a comfortable steak, different wine & deserts, this place is for you!

The food is perfect, special the meat but the Chef always give some advices for special plates and the other workers and very friendly and discreetly. This place has good and positive... More

First of all, this is an expensive restaurant, at least for Portuguese standards. If you have a bottle of wine (and you should, they have a great wine list) you will probably spend around 40 to 50 euros per person. That being said... It's a great restaurant, the decoration is perfect, and so is the music, the service and... yes,... More

This was the second time I went to Volver. The 1st one, still with the stamp of Chakal, was already pretty good, but now with their meat and wine selection, they took the restaurant to a whole new level. Highly recommended

Fantastic décor (quite captivating!) The maturated meat is superb and the siders too (although we asked for sweet potatoes and it was served with mixed potatoes - we'd rather have had just the sweet potatoes and if they were sweet potato chips, it would have been even better!) The desserts are too sweet! All in all it is a great... More

"Improbable" is the motto of Volver Meat Y Soul, with a challenging mix between Argentina and Portugal. With a sober but relaxed decor, the restaurant VOLVER is known for the quality of the aged beef (20 and 40 days) for the desserts signed by Joaquim Sousa, for the irreverent proposals, for the "caliente" nights of Tango and for the the main passion: to involve all those who visit the place in a complete experience.

VOLVER is a place where Argentina and Portugal blend improbably. Portugal is not only "fish and fado" and Argentina is not only "meat and tango". These are unique cultures and cuisines, and their mixture results in a unique melody that Volver plays fiercely. An unpretentious food restaurant that likes to make a difference, to create, innovate and dazzle all the visitors with its own Soul.
