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 were dazzled by the food choices in Lisbon! Cafe Buenos Aires was a perfect choice. Ambience, music, wonderful food and knockout cocktails. Just perfect.

When I tell you it took us 3 trips and numerous credit cards to come here with cash, I mean that literally. So when we finally did get the cash, it was mad late and we were hungry. So you can only imagine how high...our expectations were at this point. We were seated immediately at a candlelit table of our choice. To start, we ordered the ceviche—the fish was okay but the mango added such a lovely taste to it. For my main course, I had the steak, medium rare. It was delicious and exactly what I needed. It came with potato crisps which were extremely tasty. My partner got the cod and it was absolutely amazing as well. Definitely recommend. Highly recommend for a much needed steak in LisbonMore

This was our absolutely most favorite restaurant while visiting Lisbon for a few days. It is so cute and quaint inside, and the food delicious. Its tiny, but so warm and inviting. We couldn't stop thinking about our delicious meal there, and headed back on...our last evening before leaving town for another delightful treat. I loved my shrimp dish, hubby said it was the best cod he ever had, and daughter loved the pasta dishes. Amazing grilled pineapple with coconut ice cream for dessert. I can't wait to visit Portugal again to eat here!More

Excellent food, excellent service, excellent value for money. Waiter was very helpful - he even advised we probably only needed 1 main course as we had ordered 3 starters - he was right but given food was so good we couldn’t resist ordering deserts -...a chocolate one and a crumble- fabulous! We sat outside- blankets provided, lovely views, great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back. Inside was small but great cosy atmosphere. Food and service excellent!More

The food was excellent. The interior is a little tight but still very nice. We ate inside because it was cold out but if the weather permits consider outside because there is a nice view down a street with views of St. George. The service...was also very good. The portions are big! The value was super. The steaks we ordered were cooked to perfection and the chocolate desert was amazing!More

Very bad experience in its entirety.My dining experience at this restaurant was extremely disappointing. The asparagus salad featured raw asparagus, the bread was practically inedible, and the poorly-cooked poached egg left much to be desired. To make matters worse, there were unwanted ingredients like berries...instead of tomatoes. The octopus served in a mishmash salad with raw peppers was indigestible. Overall, a regrettable culinary experience.More

Delicious food and drinks in a great setting, large size portions of both food and drink! They have gluten-free options and separate fryers, so there was little room for cross-contamination. The restaurant next to this one kept texting to pinch customers by pretending it was...Cafe Buenos Aires - it definitely isn't!More

Restaurant located at a tourist area. Portion was good, though the food was a bit bland and pricey. We sat at the outdoor sitting enjoying the evening view. Pretty surprising they don't accept credit card.

Great find whilst ambling through the back streets. As veggies we often struggle to find anywhere that does something a little different but here we were not disappointed. Their veg dishes are refreshingly different, tasty and large. Great view from the steps as well. We...enjoyed the food so much we went back there a second time.More
