After reading reviews I really wanted to check this place out. When I first called they had one slot but I couldn’t confirm then and there, when I called back it had gone and I was so disappointed. However Joice took my contact details saying she would let me know if anyone cancelled and sure enough the next day I got a message...I was so happy! I would say this place definitely lives up to the hype. Firstly want to start by saying Joice and Luis are wonderful hosts, they are attentive (whilst not being intrusive), humble, relaxed and just generally a lovely couple that make you feel at home the moment you walk in the door. The restaurant itself is very intimate and is decorated with lovely art and photographs. There are only 2 tables in the restaurant and the food is prepared in the same room, essentially the space is for both dining and food prep, which adds to the overall unique experience and works well. The menu is not extensive, however all the dishes were well executed and thoroughly delicious. The aubergine lasagne was the best we’ve ever had, it was so good we had to order another one. Brazilian cheese balls were awesome as well accompanied with fresh pesto and mango dips, sublime! We were recommended the green wine (our first time trying) this was really tasty and went well with the meal. We then had freshly ground coffee and banana cake to complete an amazing meal. Before we knew it, we’d already spent 2 and a half hours in the restaurant. Thanks so much Joice and Luis! Highly recommend!

There are restaurants that offer great food......... there are also restaurants that offer dining experiences. EstaminE combines these both in an intimate 2 table atmosphere that is almost beyond description. We have dined at many chefs tables over the years in high end places where you sit in the middle of a busy kitchen and enjoy the visually fast paced environment of a working restaurant. EstaminE is exactly that …except......... ITS NOT. You do dine in the kitchen..... but it is a nice somber home feel atmosphere of a small 2 table room with 2 people that love each other, love their dream and also that love food and seeing others enjoy it. Proprietors, artists, and chefs Joice and Luis are very welcoming people that wish nothing more than you relax and experience their dream. The ever-changing menu offers a variety of small dishes and appetizers thoughtfully paired with drinks and wine. Simple right? Not really………. Joice and Luis go a step further to make sure the menu is interesting in both flavor and creativity. EstaminE is a must visit…….. one of the most enjoyable dining experiences we have ever had……. And best of all, we got to meet Joice and Luis. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

We were a bit skeptical that the reviews might be exaggrated. But we cannot be more wrong. The food was really great for our taste. We shared bruschetta, lentil salad, eggplant lasagna and chicken with coconut sauce and we loved all of them! They were like homemade food. Chatting with the owners was nice too. It is a restaurant you should definitely try when you are in Lisbon.

Make sure you make a reservation in advance. They have only two tables. You can use their social media accounts to make a reservation. They respond very quickly.

We visited Estamine Art Food Drink restaurant last night after reading the excellent reviews. We booked in advance because we knew it was popular and there is limited space. The hosts Joice and Luis were very welcoming and attentive. They went through the menu which consisted of appetising choices. We started off with the tapas for 2, then the bread balls filled with cheese, chicken in coconut and to finish it off the banana pie and ice cream. Everything was beautifully cooked and full of flavour. We were made to feel really welcome and it with nice to meet fellow travellers. They had come over from America and the restaurant was recommended to them by friends. It was a lovely night with great food, company and a memorable experience. Also not forgetting - walk the 50m up the hill to see the lovely vistas of Lisbon from the highest point. Thank Joice and Luis for the warm welcome and meal. Alex and Carolynne
