Maybe I wasn't lucky but it wasn't great, quite dry, expensive and very very tight, it was like the couple next to me was in my table.

Setting was very cozy, I loved the outside terrace. Food was quick and tasty with a good variety. Ice cream tempura could have been better but the other desserts were awesome, not gonna judge this restaurant for the desserts, the food was great.

Very friendly staff and great food. We went for a mix of different sushi and it was simply delicious! A bit more expensive than other places in Lisbon.

A totally overpriced sushi bar which was full of snobs! No English menu and cheap drinks i.e. free-tea (will be found in Lidl) instead of the Portugese brand Lipton Ice Tea and also no Sumol soft drinks which is sold everywhere out here!!!! Most disappointing. Would much rather a visit to the Koko Sushi Restaurant which is faultless!

This restaurant as not a real sushi restaurant maybe a bar. A wait of 45 minutes and a fish who don't have any taste with a curiosity of the sushi man.

The sushi and the entries (salmon carpaccio and gyosas) were brilliant. Very, very good. The location is excellent. The team was wonderful and very nice and attentive. But... Is excessively high-priced. The service could be more efficient. And down floor the decor isn't very comfortable or attractive. But in the end the experience is very good! And overall I left...

Good restaurant and fressh food but a bit pricy. The staff was very nice and the food is ok but it is very pricy. Only worth going with a 50% discount ticket.

Perfect place for lunch in principe real. It has a nice little terrace in the back so you can sit outside away from the hustle and bustle. The fish is really fresh and their selection various from day to day. We have a shop across the street and so come in about 3 times a week and have not yet... More

Best Sushi restaurant in Lisbon! The food is excellent!! I suggest the salmon carpaccio to entree anda then the 'origami degustação' (the chef choose what you'll eat). Great location, just a 5 min walk to 'bairro alto' (one of the most typical places to go at Lisbon night)

Staying in Principe Real

Neighbourhood Profile
Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a visit and it won't let you down: its attractions include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace, home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center with its cafes, art galleries and luxury shops... and even if you don't buy anything, take a look inside just for its marvellous interiors. On top of this, Príncipe Real offers a variety of places to eat: if you're in a hurry, drop by "Pizza a Pezzi"; and if you're not, taste the delicious Honorato hamburgers, Argentinian cuisine at La Paparrucha and also great, delicious Portuguese food at Tascardoso!
