The food was good and the service excellent but too little food for too much money. We ate in the smaller cafe area and were, sadly, disappointed.

“One of the best dinners I've had this year”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

High end, delicious food, excellent local wine and thoughtful, professional service. Definitely the best boeuf tartare I've ever had. Overal hard to fault. Thoroughly recommended.

“Read your menu carefully to avoid bait and switch”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013 via mobile

The Tiara Park is a great place to stay. The food here is very good and priced for the expense account traveller. This restaurant was the source of our most unpleasant experience in Portugal.

We sat down for a late lunch and were given English menus. The meal was great. The trouble was with the bill.

We were charged 22 Euros each for a prix fixe menu, when we had ordered a la carte from a menu that listed individual prices for the dishes we had chosen. When we questioned the notion that we had ordered a menu prix fixe, the waiter pointed to some fine print on the menu that he hadn't explained, about ordering more than one item constituting a price fixe menu.

We were aware of the local practice of billing for bread, but we did not encounter this bait and switch tactic in much more expensive Lisbon restaurants and found it disingenuous that he had not explained it.

He tried to suggest that the difference was small, but it amounted to over 10 Euros. He then backed down when we objected, but this left a bad taste. We avoided the restaurant thereafter.

The experience was not in keeping with our enjoyment of many other restaurants in Portugal, nor with our otherwise delightful stay at the Tiara Park Lisboa.

“We expected more!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2013

The food was very good. The atmosphere, too.
The wine menu of = 5 euros, was mentioned but they told us that they haven't the wines for this menu. They only had a wine list to expensive. Dialogue with the waitress was not possible.
It was to expensive if we consider all the issues.
We expected more!

“Casual and fancy”

Really casual place to have a meal, even if you are not staying at the hotel. The staff is very friendly and the foods is wondefuly cooked. You can save some money by choosing the daily menu =)
