“Overpriced and trying too hard”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

The food looked amazing but it was way off the mark regarding taste. Our group have eaten at some of the best places in the world and we know good food. We were very disappointed. The food was overseasoned, a uncomplimentary mix of textures and flavours. I had the fig and cheese sorbet starter. What can i say...strong tasting aniseed to the fig totally overpowered the dish and the cheese sorbet was a watery mess which was lost. I had one bite and wasnt even asked my opinion when they took the dish away!.....the only good thing was the view so my advice would be to head to the sky bar for a drink and then go to another restaurant!

“Terrible food mediocre staff great view”
Reviewed 3 August 2013

Go for drink as the city lights come up. Don't waste your time or money on the food. Salad overdressed food bland and staff didn't seem to care when taking away full plates.

“Fabulous Upscale Food with a View”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

I was staying at the Tivoli Lisboa and ate at the Terraco Restaurant my first night in Lisbon because I'd heard the view was great. I was definitely impressed not only with the view but with the food and service.

The wait staff was very professional and attentive and made an excellent recommendation for wine. I had Balcalhao two ways and the duck and pate appetizer. They were absolutely delicious, plated beautifully, and well portioned. The bread was also excellent, with a variety of selections at the table and three types of butter.

The view also did not disappoint. The view of the castle, Rossio, Bairro Alto, and Tagus River was gorgeous at night. Since the hotel is one of the tallest buildings in the area, I can't imagine it can be beat.

I would definitely eat at the Terraco again when in Lisbon.

“Good food with a great view”
Reviewed 17 June 2013

The view from the restaurant and the Sky Bar outside is phenomenal. The food was good as well, but the view is what stands out here!
