We were recommended the '33' by our hotel concierge and he was right that it is a very good place to eat and an enjoyable location too if you get to dine in the garden terrace. A liitle unusual in the heart of a busy city like Lisbon. The menu is based upon Portuguese cooking but dressed and presented very well with one or two twists. The service I am told is normally equally good, but on our visit, they were a couple of staff down and this hindered their service and delayed food delivery but, didn't affect the really good food quality. Whilst our table neighbours waited 40 minutes from starter to main course arriving; they had visited before and insisted that it was not normal for that length of delay. We were fortunate in that we didn't see a long delay and really enjoyed the whole experience. The prices aren't for those on a budget. Not really expensive, but on the high side. But, if you want to treat yourself whilst in Lisbon, this is very much a contender.

This is the second time this week we have eaten at Restaurant 33. If you are looking for gourmet food served on black slate plates with a blob of sauce and some fancy swirl through then this is not for you. However if you want a nice meal reasonably priced with a lovely garden terrace and good service then give it a go.
I feel previous comments were a little unkind as the food was very nice. We had the set 3 course menu I had cod fish cakes then shrimp tagliatelle and chocolate mousse, my partner octopus salad, same main and a huge piece of melon.
There was an a la carte menu too also reasonably priced.

Even if the food is good, the price asked for it is very high. Additionally, the staff would offer you starters which they charge on the bill at tremendous prices (two slices of bread for 6 euros!? one little glass of Porto wine for 4 euros!?) weather you eat it or not. So, unless you are a rich millionaire eager to spend money without care, you could find something else at a more reasonable price

Pros:
- the terrace is lovely, a good point especially downtown
- the service is nice and our waiter had a sense of humor and was honest about the freshness of the food (wanted to have sea bass, which he said they hadn't fresh)

Cons:
- the presentation is housewife-style (not elaborate, just the ingredients on the plate with no efforts), which doesn't mean the food is bad, which it wasn't - especially the honey crust salmon
- it wasn't that good value for money for Lisbon's standards (a bit more than 70€ for a three course meal plus a bottle of wine).
