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.

We had a great evening here - it is a very pretty (tiny) restaurant, and the lady running it was very friendly and entertaining. The food was interesting, and enjoyable - could have been more spicy, but tasty anyway. The decor, ambience, and warm welcome you receive make for a very enjoyable evening.

This was a wonderful meal and a delightful experience! The owner/chef/ server was always in motion, but we were warmly received and attended to during our time here. We ordered one lamb dish and one chicken dish, and both were unique and delicious. They came with sides, which she chose, as she knows what pairs best with each dish, but the option was ours. We were not disappointed. But you have to make reservations well in advance, as the restaurant is very small and always full. One of our best meals in Lisbon!

The way Flor da Laranja is operated is the most interesting I have ever encountered. One magnificent lady greets, seats, wines, and dines guests all on her own; it is like stepping into her house! Lisbon had once been occupied by north africans/arabians, so to it felt a historic duty to eat Morocan food whilst there. The food was delicious, although the menu perhaps limited (easy to understand when one person is cooking for upwards of 20 guests). Whilst inside I heard the owner speak fluent English, French, Portuguese, and I believe she also speaks Arabic. Defientely a unique experience!

Firstly, I appreciate our experience may have been a blip compared to all the other reviews. The ambience and decor is really lovely, and the lady is on the go all the time. I didn't see anyone else in the kitchen and understand she's doing all the cooking, serving, etc - she really didn't stop. The pre prepared canapes were delicious and a nice touch. Unfortunately, my chicken was overcooked, and I had no choice over what accompanying dishes I received. Because she is so rushed, it didn't feel a relaxing meal. It took a while to get served on ordering, drinks and food, apart from the initial canapes. Having said all this, again it seems ours was an unusual experience and she really does deserve to do well given how much effort he puts in

[21/04 à 10:47] Rabea Esserghini: Mrs Rebecca. This appreciation of yours is so unjust, not wanting to say unfairly sent through TripAdvisor, you could have said that to me...if only you weren't in a hurry...it didn't touk me "a while to serve"it is my way to give people "time to socialise, enjoy the evening ,you didn't happen to come to 《eat》? but to live the experience of enjoying the atmosphere....not rush in the service,because it is not 《fast food》!!!! The chicken is NEVER overcooked, but the particularity of the "breast " is...You could have "all" the aside, or choose between them,if only you had asked.....you need to educate yourself before going to any other places without a small knowledge about their cultures,or the way they operate.. [21/04 à 10:57] Rabea Esserghini: ...I mean:the chicken breast is "dry" by texture...

Flor de Laranja is a very small restaurant focusing on food from Casablanca. It is a one-person show, almost as if you're in her home, but you're made welcome in Portuguese, English, French or German, and I'm sure Arabic as well since the proprietress lived in Morocco for many years and is proud to showcase its cuisine. The food, of course, is delicious, reasonably priced, and the whole evening is a wonderful experience.

Both food and the host are incredibly amazing. When eating a Flor da Laranja you immediately feel like at home thanks to the amazing owner who use to do everything is the restaurant. Food is incredible, as well as the experience.

Very important to make an advance reservation. The owner Rabéa Esserghini, does everything on her own including cooking and serving, so she has to limit the number of guests. We had chicken triangles and vegetable rolls as starters, followed by a lamb artichoke tagine for me and preserved lemon chicken for my wife. The food was flavoursome and delicious. Rabéa is an excellent hostess and the evening was a most memorable experience. We will definitely go back there again on future visits to Lisbon

Had a reservation for 8pm arranged by phone with the owner. When we arrived she basically accused us of making it up and lying and literally pushed us out of the restaurant while yelling at us. Rudest restaurant owner I have ever experienced in Lisbon, if not ever. No matter how good the food is, guests shouldn’t be treated like that. Even if I hadn’t have a reservation at all (which I had) she could have politely told us that she was booked out. I was speechless about such treatment. Terrible experience. Read the other reviews. There seems to be a pattern.

Nice to have Moroccan food in Lisbon as we have traveled extensively in Morocco. The interior is charming, full of cute and quirky decorations. The owner/cook is eccentric and was more than a bit stressed. The menu is limited, and the food was good. We had a pleasant evening.

Absolutely exquisite meal in every way. Rabia is a one woman powerhouse. Whipping up her family recipes to a full house and keeping things moving and service impeccable. Her prices are very reasonable for the DELICIOUS food that is served. Loved every bit of it. Try the lemon chicken, it’s so wonderful.

Great One-woman-Show. Small but very cozy restaurant. Feeling as if at home of the owner. Relaxing small-talk in Moroccan atmosphere. Delicious dishes for every taste. Been there there with 2 kids and met with superb hospitality. Definitely a recommendation!

As an Egyptian, I can say it is best Middle Eastern/North African restaurant in Lisbon! Had the vegetarian tagine; others had the agneau tagine. Everything was perfect, including the mint tea and little desserts.
