Description: "Improbable" is the motto of Volver Meat Y Soul, with a challenging mix between Argentina and Portugal. With a sober but relaxed decor, the restaurant VOLVER is known for the quality of the aged beef (20 and 40 days) for the desserts signed by Joaquim Sousa, for the irreverent proposals, for the "caliente" nights of Tango and for the the main passion: to involve all those who visit the place in a complete experience. With João Oliveira, as new chief executive, VOLVER is a place where Argentina and Portugal blend improbably. Portugal is not only "fish and fado" and Argentina is not only "meat and tango". These are unique cultures and cuisines, and their mixture results in a unique melody that Volver plays fiercely. An unpretentious food restaurant that likes to make a difference, to create, innovate and dazzle all the visitors with its own Soul.

“Unlikely location for one of the best retaurant in Lisbon”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

Had a business lunch there. The place is run by Chakall, a local celebrity chef that has his TV show and all kind of endorsement deals for whom I care very little. I actually had a negative preconceived idea. But this place is by miles ahead the best restaurant I have experienced in Lisbon. It could have a Michelin star. Everything is perfect, from food to service, space between tables etc. It is on the outskirts of Lisbon in a weird location. But once you're inside, the staff is professional and discrete... Love it.

“Very good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

Enjoyable decoration, friendly and professional service, very good food.
I wonder if chief's Chakal recipes are still being used, but the overall result is very good. Deserts make you cry for more. Reasonably priced.

“Definitely worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

This is by far one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten in.

Chakall is a great cook, and since he took over this restaurant the quality improved.

You can be sure you will signature dishes you won't find anywhere else in a relaxed environment.

The service is quick and friendly, making you feel right at home.

Unlikely location for a restaurant of this class. Everything was perfect, which for Portugal is no small achievement.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2011

Cosy environment.
Very good service.
Menu made of International food and some traditional portuguese dishes but with the influence of chef´s Chakal gastronomic culture and origin. Very feel executed and presented.
Worth a visit.
