Classic old-time and contemporary vibes - food was excellent and the atmosphere is great! Have been there twice, once with my significant other and then with my parents and it fits perfectly both occasions! The desert we had was phenomenal!

Love Portuguese food and this restaurant does not disappoint! It is pricey if are looking for a cheap restaurant this is not for you. It's totally worth it though. It's not fancy, but it is not super laid back either.

Recently enjoyed Old Lisbon's Paella with family and friends. It was most likely, the best Paella that we have ever experienced! Chichi full of wonderful seafood including shrimp, lobster and scallops- beautifully cooked rice in a broth that kept the rice moist and flavorful without getting "gummy". just plain delicious!

South Miami location. We ate here years ago, and couldn't remember why we hadn't been back so got a fresh reminder. I am simply astounded at the stellar reviews given our experience. We had reservations, but were asked to wait "5 minutes" at the bar. Five turned to closer to 15, which would have been ok if anyone worked the bar. Or asked us if we'd like a drink. Instead, they bizarrely put olive oil and a dish of butter in front of us. Finally bread, but never a drink order offer. Again, we were seated AT THEIR BAR. Our table was ready right as the bread hit the bar. Cod fritters with black eyed peas appetizer was ok, but nothing special as was the caldo verde (potato and collard soup). The cod with potatoes and onions entree was dry and lacked flavor. My son ordered octopus rice, which he could not eat because cilantro was an undisclosed ingredient (tastes like soap to him). The seafood rice was the best entree by far and the only item I'd order again.. Our dessert took so long we thought they forgot it. No one checked on us during our meal to see if we wanted anything. We felt almost like we were an imposition on the wait staff - yet watched them hug certain customers like they were family. All in all a huge disappointment, and given the hefty $200+ bill for 4, we won't be back.

My husband and my grandson ordered steak and it was outstanding. I ordered the fish and it was kinda bland but the shrimp on top of the fish were wonderful.
It is pricey, and the service is very European - they do not rush you here, they let you take your time and eat, and drink, and easily take two hours for dinner.
The side dishes were very good, the appetizers were delicious (ham and cheese plate, Portuguese sausage). We couldn't fit another thing in for dessert, but they all looked good...
