    the dishes served are absolutely delicious. BUT, an hour between the first and the second course is unbearable. And the room is very noisy.

    The dinner service was impeccable and the execution of the tasting menu was flawless. Interesting unexpected flavors on the tasting menu which was very reasonably priced. Only thing I might say is the swap out one of the vegetarian courses for another seafood or meat course but otherwise a charming dinner was had.

    An excellent treat in Lisbon. Gourmets will be pleased. The cuisine is top class, nice local wine list and courteous service. Bare in mind though that the back room is a “Delors” (though partially isolated) and can get chilly in winter. Ask for blankets or come prepared. It’s worth the visit.

    I did the tasting menu and everything was absolutely incredible. The flavour and textures for each dish were perfectly balanced. The spacing between dishes was good, there was enough time to savour each dish and sit between courses so I didn't feel rushed. An extensive wine/cocktail menu with a staff member to help pair wines with the food. Would recommend for a celebratory night out or just a night to eat amazing food!

    Boubou's is by far one of the best restaurants in Lisbon. The food is creative and very well mastered, the tastes are right and the products are well sourced. The place is decorated with great style. The service is impeccable: warm, passionate and attentive. This place is likely to get a star very soon. Don't wait, go there!

    We had our best meal in Lisbon last night after a week here (and we had lots of good meals in this fabulous town) and simply one of our best meals in a long time. The tasting menu was exquisite and full of surprises without any of the prétention of some of the usual fine dining establishments. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere and decor wonderful. Cannot recommend more if you are in Lisbon. Prices very reasonable for the quality as well.

    We had the tasting menu and the food was absolutely incredible. Perfect portion size, we weren’t too full or too hungry after. The service was fantastic, the waiters were attentive and didn’t rush us. Only small downside, it was a little cold sat at the back of the restaurant for November (which has a small roof covering). We moved inside and it was no trouble for the staff. Overall would highly recommend.

    Boubou’s offers good food under almost pathological management. We arrived for our reservation. Manager complained that we had not answered his phone call to confirm reservation. Explained that as Americans in Europe, we lacked local phones. He berated us, offered us bar seating only in a 3/4 empty restaurant, and then berated us some more. As the tirade continued - yes I understand it’s difficult to operate a restaurant under COVID- we eventuality rose and left. The night before we had dined at Bel Canto, we know what Lisbon can offer at its best. This was crude and nasty and stupid/ unworthy of a fine kitchen and chef

    Second time to Boubou’s, the food is great, but for me the staff and service is the best bit. Very attentive and knowledgable, and when a small issue occurred with a dish choice, the staff were so kind in offering something complementary. Really would recommend for anyone visiting or living in Lisbon!
