We made a reservation, and they told us there were only two more tables. At 20u30 we were the second couple, so they got plenty of time to explain the menu. The food was perfect and the people extremely friendly. You could feel the pleasure...More

This was an excellent little find with really friendly service, great traditional food and a nice buzzing atmosphere. Well worth booking in advance as it's popular and has just two sittings in the evening. It's a little off the beaten track, but it must be...More

WE had dinner with some friends in a hot summer night in lisbon. The bar has the most complete collection of gin tonics I've ever seen and the ones we tasted were amazing. Food is a mix of portuguese and spanish tapas and it's very...More

We chose to eat at the restaurant last night. It was our first evening in Lisbon and we enjoyed the experience so much we felt it deserved a review while the memory was still fresh. Once we were comfortably seated the head waiter took the...More

Delicious food with a nice staff and a beautiful decoration. Been there more than 10 times, strongly recommend the mushrooms with chestnuts (cogumelos com castanhas), the toasted bread with goat cheese and honey (Tiborna de queijo e mel) and the Steak (bife à ideal?). Reservation...More

Our first night in Lisbon and didn't want to stray too far from the neighbourhood we were staying in, Bairro Alto. The apartment we were staying in listed a few recommended restaurants, one of which was Taberna Ideal. It was a Saturday night and we...More

"Petiscar" is the Portuguese verb for having a snack, but it really means a bit more than just having a snack, it usually means having something nice, tasty... This is one of the best places to try the traditional Portuguese snacks. The menu is written...More

The restaurant came highly recommended by friends living in the area, but we found out the hard way that it is almost impossible to get seated on weekend nights without a reservation. However, two doors down the street they have a second location, which has...More

Simple petite adresse avec une bonne ambiance et de la bonne musique où j'ai mangé une très bonne salade bien assaisonnée , mangue exquise et bon fromage. Une pression à 2€ et un bon cheesecake, le tout pour 15€70 à 23h , un rapport qualité prix que l'on aura du mal à trouver dans d'autres capitales européennes. Il paraît qu'ils mettront bientôt le logo "fait maison" . Service agréable et efficace même passé minuit.
