Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This bar was close to where we were staying and we went out of curiosity. The massive collection of all sorts of things is interesting to look at but our cocktails were mediocre and the service was average. If you want great cocktails there are far better bars nearby.

Quirky and fun, one of our lovely tour guides had told us to give this a try. The location and style was amazing, eerie but fascinating but we found the staff surly, rude and only had pleasant service from one lady. At least 2 of the waiting on staff didn’t seem to want to be there, then were upset when we advised them the bill had 2 too many waters on it. Luckily the friendly lady remembered that the table before us had 2 waters that had been added to our bill in error. I don’t think I’d go back, despite the great interior.

Hidden away gem that offers a very unique experience. A one of a kind place. The drink menu is huge and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Unique bar, full of old school charm, an incredible interior stuffed full of Knick-knacks, you wouldn’t want the job of dusting! Well worth a visit if you’re in the neighbourhood

Strange place. You just have to experience the madness and have a great time. So much to look at and get distracted by. Make sure to walk around the establishment.

Wow. Whilst visiting Lisbon a friend recommended this place to us, we were not far from here so thought we would pay it a visit, we found it on Google maps and followed the directions, when we got there we thought we had the wrong place, from outside it looks nothing but as it was recommended we decided to go in, we’ll aren’t we glad we did, what an amazing quirky place, it’s like an Aladdins cave, comfortable and friendly, definitely a must visit.

We liked it so much we visited twice during a short stay in Lisbon. The cocktails were excellent and service was nice , though the star is probably the decor, or rather the collection that hosts. You'd need hours to go through all of it properly, it's quite unique and it's probably why most people go, however we returned for the cocktails as well: Manhatan dry and Calvados cocktail.

Not for me this one. Perhaps it's because we were there early evening, but the atmosphere was a bit odd, the music was cheesy (for me, terrible). The cocktails were average. The quirky decor looks quite cool but that's about it. With so many nice places to take in Lisbons scenery I wouldnt recommend sitting in a dark, musty bar. One thing I would say is that the service was fine and the staff friendly, given some other reviews perhaps it's just a bit patchy.

Cool visual identity but over-hyped and overpriced (like everything else in that area), with a poor service and communication.
I've been to Pavilhao Chines tonight, for the first and last time. I wanted to order a simple cheese sandwich, with 4 cheese options available. I briefly talked over those options with the waiter and he suggested me to have an open sandwich with 3 varieties of cheese displayed in the plate so that I could try them all out and serve myself with the bread slices. Suggestion accepted.
Then to my surprise, when I got the bill, I was charged 3x the price of the original sandwich I meant to order. What the waiter suggested was actually a different type of dish, with a different price and size, and he was not clear about it. He didn't call the dish by its name nor brought that detail to my attention.
I explained the situation to the manager but he washed his hands of it. The waiter insisted that he correctly described to me what I was gonna be served with, I insisted the price and dish category difference was unclear, and no one came up with a solution or at least an attempt of a service recovery. I ended up paying the triple-priced bill.
I value my money and the transparency of the services I use. The miscommunication might have been unintentional (still questionable since the waiter and I share the same mother tongue and nationality) but its management was poor and reckless. All I got was disregard.
I'm not coming back and I don't recommend this service. There are plenty of better places to explore in the city.

I used to live around the corner from this bar and always took friends there to marvel at the collections of curiosities. My friends this time still appreciated the room and decor, and it was nice to the staff to fit us in… but we were squeezed around a tiny table, practically sitting on the laps of a couple, then got told off for borrowing a chair from another table. It was early and not yet full. Drinks pricey and not much atmosphere. It used to be funny that the manager was a bit grumpy but now it’s no fun as he is just not pleasant at all. I might go back but I wouldn’t make a special effort.
