“Really good”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

We stumbled across this place on a Saturday evening, the interior caught our eye and to be honest the whole meal was great, the starter, wine and main course (sirloin) served on a hot rock made for an throughly enjoyable experience. Desert perhaps not quite so good, the Chocolate sponge was pretty dry but that's minor in the scheme of things. Chatting to the owner it's obvious she has a passion for the place and that's so important. Try it, I doubt you will feel let down and certainly won't feel hungry on the way out.

Walking around in the Bairro Alto we discovered Sul. Great Portuguese food and a very relaxed and nice atmosphere. Proactive service and good food! Recommendable!

“Fabulous food”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Stopped into this place on a night out in Lisbon and absolutely loved it. We only had main courses but everything on our plates was amazing. The menu doesn't have much of a selection but there is something for any meat eater! The wine was good value and delicious. Sul is definitely worth a visit when in Lisbon.

“Dissapointed”
Reviewed 23 April 2013

We often go for the TripAdvisor or if lacking Internet the Lonely Planet recommendations. Sul features well in both cases, but this time we were dissapointed. The interior is nice, a little "different". Service,fair enough though not very friendly. But, I regret to say it, the food was the least appreciable we had in Lisbon. We both went for the cod with breadcrumps. The fish was much too salt, dry and tough. The accompanying stew was totally out of place in my humble opinion. We didn't try anything else, we'd had enouh. Maybe other dishes are better, but the cod was, well, almost awful.

“dissapointing”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

We stopped by this restaurant on our last night in Lisbon. From the outside it looked nicer than the other restaurants in the quarter, also not so touristy. However, from the inside it has a bit of "IKEA-charme" and doesn`t deliver what it has promised. The food was less than average - the filet steak was two pieces of dry something. At a price of over 25.- eur you can definitely expect more even in a city like Lisbon where the food is not the greatest in general. The service was also a bit poor, not very responsive nor friendly. At the end there were more items on the bill than what we had consumed. They corrected it without any discussion. Still I wouldn`t come back again
