We had reservations for a group of 8 on a Sat. night, two of us arrived in time for our reservations but the other party members where at least a half an hour late. However, the wait staff was very courteous about it and even sang Happy Birthday in Portuguese to my boyfriend. The food was excellent, authentic Portuguese food with some "staples" mixed in to satisfy everyone. Also, I have to add that the rest of our group was pretty rowdy and rude at times, but the wait staff always treated us with respect regardless. A very enjoyable experience, will be back. Thank you.
Food was good if you don’t mind waiting for 1.5 hours to eat. Waitress was running around and doing her best but kitchen and front of the house were in extreme distress. The food, when it arrived, it was delicious but by the time it arrived we were no longer hungry.
This was a great find. Quiet, casual, family-friendly but was a good spot for long-time friends to get together and chat over dinner. Food was outstanding, well-prepared, nicely presented, and delicious. Our waiter turned out to be the owner's son, and it was fun to learn the family origins of some of the meals.
Highly recommended -- we'll go out of our way to go back the next time we are in the Orlando area.
The food was fantastic!! Our waiter was charming and excellent at explaining the House specialties.
I was born in Lisbon and grew up enjoying home cooking, some of which was bacalhau a gomes sa. My wife , who is American and loves Portugal (we went several years ago) inherited my grandmother's recipe and does it perfectly. The right amount of olive oil, eggs, black olives, and grilled to perfection.
Therefore, the restaurant had a high standard to meet, for which they did a nice job. The chourizo appetizer had a nice blend of red wine, and the pastels the Belem for dessert were very good...........the pastry was not as flaky as the real ones, but still very nice, and so was the flan.
Friendly staff as well, and the fado (famed Portuguese music) playing in the background made it authentic
The restaurant has been opened for a year and half. We look forward to our next visit!
The restaurant was lovely, as was the staff. Charming! My mother and I split the Bronzino and it was terrific. My sister ordered the pork loin with clams.... not so good. I would stick with fisb entrees here or the wonderful steak and eggs I saw around us. The staff is accomodating and charming. They just need to explain the dishes they sere better. Good luck!
My grandson loves everything seafood and I took him to Lisbon, Saturday, to introduce him to Portuguese cuisine.
I really don’t believe he’ll ever forget the grilled octopus. A must try. Very ample portions and he ate the leftover, cold, later that evening.
I had the red snapper (not on the menu, however, I’d they have it on-hand, I would recommend this dish as well. 4 grilled shrimp on top and refreshing dip that’s bright and flavorful.
I’ve sampled their apps and desserts, on prior visit, and would recommend Lisbon as a coffee and dessert destination.
The food is served by the friendliest, knowledge wait staff.
Will definitely return. Several more family members to treat.
The atmosphere was great, the food was phenomenal the drinks were superb!! I would recommend this restaurant for any occasion really! The service was great and I could just go on and on about this restaurant. I would say, definitely check it out for yourself...you won't disappointed!!
Went there to enjoy the authentic taste of Portugal and it was as good as it gets it was all home cooked with the taste of portugal . This place is going to be a regular spot for me.
My first time eating their food great people great and good location I recommend it
Had a great feeling to the area. Waiters were very friendly and food was amazing.
As good as the food I had in Portugal. A great gem in Orlando.
Excellent. It made me feel like U was dining in Lisbon again.
Great taste of Portugal!
Brought my Portuguese husband here and to meet up with a good friend from PR. The food was definitely authentic as very flavorful. The menu had a mix of chicken, steak, pork and cod dishes to choose from. If you'd like a unique experience this is the place
Carla our server was great. I loved the Octopus. I had it as an app and entree.
Excellent food and ambiance!!
The menu was mainly cod. 2 people from our group don’t like COD. So they had the chicken and they didn’t love it. Still, a solid restaurant if you are in the mood for cod (at least as an appy)
I had an enjoyable business dinner at Lisbon. The wait staff was attentive and informative regarding menu items and wines. The cod was tasty but boney. My companion had the pork and really liked it. The restaurant seems well-run, it was quiet so we could talk, and the menu had a good variety. I'd go back.
Service very good, ambiance a little dated. Food was authentic, but steak and pork overdone. I’d be willing to tray again but there are so many options.......
This is our favorite português restaurant in the Orlando area. It is definitely worth the drive from Tampa. The people are friendly and the food is traditional Portuguese. It is one of the better português restaurants stateside.
Unique experience. Great for a slow paced meal with conversation-friendly atmosphere. Would try the cod prepared in ceramic dish or the octopus. Clam appetizer had great flavor
Way too much cod...some of the plates were unattractive. Not any inventive flavors. The octopus was good but the other 3 plates were not seasoned well. One was full of so many bones in the fish it was inedible. When the manager was informed he just knodded and walked away.
Not advising anyone I know to visit.
Food was really good, enjoyed the atmosphere, but when asking the waiter for his real opinions on wine maybe suggesting both the most expensive bottle in both red and white isn’t the best idea. It comes off annoying like you’re not making a suggestion from opinion about the wine, but from a point to want to make money! Also,circling the word TIP on the receipt is ridiculous. Yes, we’re in our early 30’s, but we’re aware of common dining out practices.
Fantastic meal and evening with family and friends. Highly recommend this restaurant.
I'm from NJ where we have a lot of good Portuguese restaurants and am also of Portguese decent. I wasn't expecting an authentic Portuguese restaurant. Was I in for a surprise It was like being home. Everyone was warm and friendly and the food tasted home cooked!
I have told everyone I have run into in the area that they need to go!!! What a hidden little gem!
Excellent food, tasty, well presented and bread was warm and yummy. Waitress was positive, and attentive. Would recommend for Portuguese food. Loved it!
Excellent food and service. We were vacationing in Orlando for 2 weeks and we had dinner here twice. Best authentic Portuguese food ever!
OUR WAITER BETO WAS THE BEST!! WONDERFUL RECOMENDATIONS FOR MENU SELECTIONS...THE FOOD AND SERVICE WAS AMAZING!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET.
My husband’s steak is over cooked , food is v salty , our Waiter is nice .
First time going .If you like Portuguese Food this is the place to go. Food was excellent. Server was friendly. Explained things on menue we didn't understand. Would recommend to a friend.
Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love Love
Excellent flavor. Authentic taste. Nice wait staff.
From the hot fresh made bread to the dessert, everything was done to perfection. I would go again and definitely recommend it.
It was the first time my parents and I visited Lisbon Restaurant. The experience was unique, the service outstanding, the atmosphere is cozy and the food was very fresh and delicious. We will definitely return to meet their wonderful team.
The food and staff was excellent - everything was freshly made and brought to us in a timely manner. My fiancé and I have been to Portugal many times and we both found the food comparable and authentic. We cannot wait to dine there again!
Lisbon is just to the right of Tapa Toro on I-Drive near The Eye. My family went for my husband's 53rd birthday on a Sunday at 5 pm. We were the only ones there which is sad because we really enjoyed our experience. If you've never had Portuguese food, it is NOT like Caribbean food. Not spicy at all; more like steak and potatoes. Very simple, but tasty. You have to get the Brandy-flambé Portuguese sausage if you're with a group. It comes on fire in a terra cotta pig. We also had the cheese platter with two types of Portuguese cheeses, olives, and shaved ham or pork. The waitress chose a Portuguese red wine for us which was great! My son had the traditional Portuguese sandwich, my daughter-in-law had the grilled chicken, my husband had the smaller steak that comes with an egg on top, and I had the lamb chops with mashed potatoes (the best mashed potatoes I've had since...mine!) Most entrées come with white rice and fries, but I'm sure they had other options. For dessert we had the flan (not egg-tasting) & the traditional egg custard tarts. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed everything! I would hate for this place to go under for lack of customers, so check out the online sites that show photos and head over to I-Drive. The only negative was the parking garage walk. Valet parking is free but you still have to walk a bit. I believe they open up the streets during certain hours and you can valet at the entrance to the restaurant. Also, finding their menu online is a challenge, but can be accomplished. I know you know how...Nothing fancy inside except some Portuguese blue and white tiles but that just means you don't have to dress up.
Staff was very friendly and helpful, the food was awesome! We really need a spot like that in Orlando as we don't have many Portuguese cuisine here. Love it!
Seriously great! Would definitely recommend :)
Simply amazing . Tasty food , very nice ambiance, service is perfect their all so kind, one of the best Portuguese restaurants I've ever been to . Reminded me as if I was in Portugal ! Overall , recommendation is 100%!
Great food. Great service. Everything was just the way it should be and is expected from a good restaurant. A new favorite place to go for dining.
Food took 45 minutes to come out, plain entrees, nothing special about this restaurant.
