The sushi was absolutely delicious, and from what we tried I can't fault it. We ordered quite a lot of food (miso soup each, gyoza, another starter, several different nigiris and makis, the vegetable sushi platter and a few other bits) and the bill came...More

Underwhelming and a time drain! The service is very poor. I spent over 20 minutes waiting for someone to notice me... then I asked if I might order a drink... to which I was told that she wasn't the correct person. The fish is fresh...More

This is a great sushi restaurant in Lisbon. It may be slightly far away from the downtown core in Baixa, yet it's worth it. The service was very good, and of course the sushi was excellent. Many different varieties aka fusion-style to choose from. The...More

Really nice ambience kind of place. Clean and good music. Service is slow. I would recommend staying away from the raw fish. It was chewy and tasted aged. We left the raw stuff uneaten. Salad and salmon was extremely salty. Chef was so nice and...More

The title says it all, very good sushi and sashimi, a little expensive. Good ambiance. Try the miso soup.

Great restaurant if you like some excellent sushi, sashimi, etc. It's close to the Avenida da Liberdade and not far from Marquês Pombal. It has a nice interior and a terrace. The food is of excellent quality. Price/quality it's a great restaurant. They've got a...More

This restaurant was recommend to us as a great Japanese restaurant but is just ok ! Basic menu and so so in terms of quality. The service was efficient but pretentious. The ratio price/quality is not fair.

Located near Avenida da Liberdade, one of Lisbon’s busiest and luxurious streets, Avenida SushiCafé quickly became one of the most sought-after restaurant by sushi lovers, but also by everyone who is curious about this gastronomic universe. Avenida SushiCafé is now a meeting point for people who want to deeply know the Japanese contemporary food without the excessive oriental influence. The quality of our products from our national and international producers and the attention to the details, alongside generous doses of freshness and surprise, remain the brand’s image. At the table, the experience is always genuine, sprinkled with creativity regarding the taste and the presentation of the dishes. The result is an unique journey through the best of Japanese cuisine. A sophisticated decoration, a comfortable ambience, a team that knows how to welcome and advise: this all made Avenida SushiCafé a reference in the city. The restaurant is divided in distinct areas, each one with its ambience. The luminous esplanade allows people to see the city’s hustle, and the bar, at the entrance, is the busiest area and where one can feel the restaurant’s vibes. The Japanese zone is the favorite space for the regular clients, from where they can take a look at the sushi bar where the action happens; and the wavy zone is more private and it’s appropriate for business and special meetings. The bar is the meeting point for cocktails’lovers and for those who like to have a nice time with quality drinks. With a laid-back atmosphere, the bar now opens its doors to saké, the most traditional Japanese beverage. Cocktails with saké, infusions with saké, paring saké with chef’s creations… Now the bar of Avenida SushiCafé has space for these and many other experiments around this Japanese drink, still unknown in Portugal. Whether as a welcome drink or as a good complement during the meal — with the most appropriate choice for each dish — the public will be able to discover sakés from different regions, made by different methods and with quite different flavors. For this reason, the bar of Avenida SushiCafé is an unique and singular place in the city. The decor of Avenida SushiCafé is in line with the concept of the restaurant and chef’s creations: it is surprising yet elegant and makes us want to stay longer. Being the fish our main product it was obvious that the sea and the underworld would come up as the key references for the construction of the space full of sculptures of corals, sand and waves. Irashaimase, which means welcome…to Avenida SushiCafé!
