Description: Emblematic, highly regarded and with one of the most stunning views over the city, the panoramic restaurant Varanda de Lisboa, is the symbol of excellent Portuguese gastronomy. Well praised, are its flambés, “cataplanas” and weekly theme menus. Thinking of all those that like to save time, the Executive Menu is perfect, and available daily during lunch time. The unique ambience, the kindness and dedication of good serving, are accompanied by piano music during dinner (except Sundays and month of August)

A great introduction to Portuguese cuisine. A little pricier than other restaurants in the area but the immaculate service makes and great views make it well worth it.

The views over Lisbon are really good, but the service was non-existent, the staff was busy chatting at the entrance lobby instead of looking after the guests. We changed tables before ordering the meal and the second table was never set up properly, the cuttlery and glasses appeared on the table only as they were needed. The wine was put on a small table next to the initial table so with no one coimg round to to top up the glasses we had to get up and do it ourselves. Food very average with a big lack of imagination on the menu and on the presentation, One of our friends asked for coffee at the same time as the dessert but no one came back to ask if anyone else wanted coffe. But the time we managed to get their attention the appetite for coffee had gone. In no way the service of a 4 star hotel or of a restaurant with this kind of prices. It's a pity, it has a lot of potential but fails to meet the expectations.

Nice views. Nice food. Nice time. On a 10 day trip to Portugal and Spain, the 6 of us had our first dinner here. We arrived without reservations at about 8:30 and the staff was very accommodating. Fresh seafood and fried shrimp were excellent. We were given a nice table and were not rushed at all. We enjoyed the meal and lingered over the wine. After dinner, we went up the rooftop bar for a final drink. It was a little chilly, but the bar provides a stack of blankets so you can wrap up and stay warm. Great views of the city.

Fantastic view of Lisbon! Unfortunately for us it was the only highlight of the night. Food is very disappointing, very old fashioned decor, with no atmosphere at all.

90% of the customers are tourists and overpriced for service and food. We went there for family dinner and we were rushed out by the staff.

It's a pity because the restaurant really has a lot of potential.
