My friends and I are still talking about our delicious dinner at Taberna da Esperanca. The food was beautifully prepared and the wine was excellent. The wait staff was attentive, friendly and helpful. I'll be returning the next time I visit Lisboa.

Very good food, atmosphere and service, certainly don't judge it from the outside! ;) At first we weren't sure about eating there, however we decided to do it based on previous reviews and were very pleased. We would recommend to everyone we know! :)
