We found this restaurant yesterday mistake looking for the market. It was a great choice as to view. The service was good. I liked their Sangria and my wife the wine. The Goat cheese salad was great, but the Osso Busco was good not great. A little disappointing. However I would recommend as the service was pretty good.

Popped in here for a drink the day, fair enough before and the view was great and staff friendly. Went back tonight for a meal and it was awful. Firstly we were charged stupid money for an average white wine, okay the location comes with a premium,fair enough. My hamburger was undercooked to be actually bloody, my wife’s bacalho fillet over cooked and full of bones.
Our bread rolls were stale and when I asked about the burger I was asked if “medium was not my choice?” Firstly the menu does not mention anything about what to expect and then I was expected to believe that a burger which was 50% steak tartare was medium?
Ah , well lesson learned. Hopefully there will not be a part two to this sorry tale.

Thank you so much for your comment.

About the wine, our team, just makes a suggestion. But, the customer always has the final decision. In addition, in Vestigius, we don't have a medium quality wines. We only have good an top wines.
About the burger, we apologize immediatly, at the moment, and after we suggest correcting the burger's cooking point. Our team tried to help you, and solved the problem. But our help, was refused, and the response by the other side was so rude. Told us, that you hadn't more confidence, in Vestigius
The cooking point of the burger has to be indicated by the customer. If the customer doesn´t say anything, the burger, will be cooked and served, by a medium cooking point.

Thank you so much,
Esmeralda Fetahu

This is a really nice bar to sit back and relax in, good view of the river from the balcony and the wine selection and gin is enough to keep you hydrated while you soak up the sun. The food is a lot better than expected I had prawns to start which were served in a nice little pot with a gorgeous sauce, beef with smashed potatoes was so good and the chocolate desert was amazing but I was good and shared it. The seats outside were slightly uncomfortable but that's probably because I sat for so long!

We had a super lunch here during the very busy Eurovision weekend. Located overlooking the river and bridges with promenaders strolling in front.
A very bohemian Brightonesque atmosphere seems to ooze style and sophistication. The food was very well prepared, fresh, tasty and unusual Portuguese style. Service was slow but it was very busy and we wanted it that way.

For 2 courses for 4 with 2 bottles of good wine and water - about 40€ per person. Much better than our previous days lunch.

Well worth a visit

We decided to take lunch here on our last day in Lisbon. The views over the harbour looked enticing but how wrong we were on thinking this was a nice restaurant. The service is extremely slow, inattentive and delivered with an acid customer service approach. We waited over 1:15 hours for our food to arrive and then our waiter brought one wrong dish but swiftly corrected it after we complained how long we had been kept waiting, it took another 30 minutes for our request for 2 glasses of water to arrive. The staff are untrained, poorly led and just want you money (oh and check your bill as you just might find a few extras on there you did not order). Only a meek apology was given when we offered constructive feedback on paying the bill and not an inkling of a discount offered for such a poor experience so please be aware before you visit this restaurant and suffer the same experience! There are so many more better restaurants than this, maybe without the views but I would rather have great service and food than a view without this!
