Description: Located in Corinthia Hotel Lisbon, Típico is dedicated to the best of Portuguese cooking, using seasonal produce to create traditional dishes, including fish and shellfish cataplana. The focal point of the restaurant is a live carving station, providing a unique glimpse into how the fresh ingredients are prepared.

We stayed at the Hotel Corinthia for two days and on our second day we decided to make use of this restaurant which is attached to the hotel rather than head back into downtown Lisbon.

Bad Choice ! We could have taken the Metro, gone downtown, eaten, maybe had a walk around, and probably still have been back in our hotel room before we actually finished eating in this place !

The service was pleasant enough, but it was extremely slow, even though the restaurant was barely a third full. We felt invisible as we waited 20 minutes for our order to be taken, then quite annoyed as we waited another hour without our entrees. We were actually on the point of standing up and leaving when the manager came over to our table, apologised for the wait, and provided some complimentary wine by way of appeasement.

Was it worth the wait ? To be honest, the answer has to be no. The food was underwhelming, overly expensive for what it was, and average at best. We would definitely stay at this hotel again (as noted in a separate review), but dining at this restaurant ? That is 100% unequivocally a NO.

The service was slow, the food even worse. Do not go to this restaurant if you have any sort of taste buds whatsoever. And do not order the salmon under no circumstances unless you enjoy tasteless fish.

This restaurant is part of a 5 star hotel and I went there just to try it out and no room included. The food is great ! nothing very gourmet like but simple and good, the wine menu is nice and at a god level representing the good Portuguese wines. the real pity was the service... one expects in this kind of restaurant a good 5 star service... and it simply wasn't there, I don't mind that in another place but in this one was a pity (especially when you pay for it). 5 stars for the waiters that gave their best, 0 starts for the waiters that really didn't care.

Being affiliated with the five star hotel, maybe nothing less is expected, but the food and service was great, and to a nice price. The only drawback for visitors not staying at the hotel might be that it's not very centrally places, but I would recommend a evening visit if passing by the area.
