We dropped by to have some late night drinks. Restaurant is very nice with warm atmosphere and good service. The waiter even wanted to fix our wobbly table before serving drinks. We didn’t eat here but I looked the menu and consider it very expensive....More

In a side street in Principe Real, a nice and warm restaurant with Swiss revisited cuisine. Excellent food and nice staff who speaks fluently 4 languages. The atmospher is relaxed and cosy but with some elegance. A good selection of Portuguese wine is available.

We went with our 2 little boys. Waitress really accommodating and patient and food quite good. By far the most expensive meal we had in Lisbon and not sure it was worth it. Quirky decor.

Tipical Homemade Food from a Swiss Chef: Best described as "Alpine Cuisine" Adu Wahlen's dishes are refreshing in the summer time and heartwarming in the cooler season. Rosti and Spatzli are always to be found along with Cheese Fondue and Raclette for aficionados. Seasons play a great role in the choice of ingredients used with influences from french, german and italian cuisine. The menu is therefore ideal for many palates from vegetarians to meat lovers.
