“Has to be the best”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

We was lucky to find this on our last day ,Monday night early December knew it was going to be quiet only 3 tables book ,but did not disappoint .As we were the 1st there the owner ask us what room we preferred which was just as hard to chose as what to have of the menu .Food and wine lived up to our expectation .Cannot wait to get back there in June. Highly recommend this to anyone great atmosphere and service.

“Fantastic restaurant in Lisbon”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

We were on short visit to Lisbon and tried to find good place to eat in the evening.
This restaurant was above all our expectations. The food is very tasty, very non-standard and looking extremely good. The service was exceptional.

Overall, very much recommended.

“Great experiance x 2”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

I've been to club the Jornalistas twice; once for a romantic dinner in late summer and once with friends in winter time. This place is oozing with atmosphere from the minute you walk in, with is fine interior and its welcoming staff. I must recommend sitting in the back yard, if the weather allows it.

The service is very attentive, patient and calm, which compliments the atmosphere in the restaurant. The food is excellent and offers you a great variety in taste. I loved that the waiter suggested that we share the main course (making it two separate dishes rather then one big one). For a three course meal with 1 bottle of wine, I think we paid around 45 euros per person- which gives you a whole night of luxury both in terms of the food experience, high level of service and some great surroundings.

Tips: choose the “sweet things” for the dessert, is an incredible huge plate offering a lot of small treats!

“Incredible food, very good service and a special ambience”
Reviewed 30 November 2013

I kept talking with my colleagues about this place and how high it is in the tripadvisor list.
This could lead to a major disappointment but in this case it was true to its promises.
The food was excellent. One steak lover in our party described the steak as one of the best he had and so were the fish and the rest.
The plate of sweet assortment is extravagant in size and apparently very good (I had a desert of cheeses and marmalades which was delicious).
The waiters were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions about the building (18th century) the wines and of course the unavoidable question about the name of the restaurant.

“A very nice contemporary food”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We had a buble wine they offer wile waiting. Nice place but it is cold to go to the garden. The special dish of octopus was nice. Many difrent rooms well decorated. A lltle too expensive for Lisbon standards.
