When we were in Lisbon 4 years ago, we discovered this place and went twice in a week, the second time with a party of 6. So we hurried back earlier this week - but it seemms to have changed. Brave attempt at fine dining,...More

Often restaurants that have notched up several centuries are touristy and the food is poor. Not so with this elegant restaurant that has been in operation since 1784. The service is excellent and the food delicious. It is thoroughly worth a visit.

Completely overstated, overpriced. The food is at best average, possibly less. Many waiters but chaos in the service. There are many tipical Portuguese restaurants in Lisbon. Go to one of them, but not to the Tavares. You may be very disappointed otherwise.

We went there with very good recommendations, reservation. We found an almost empty restaurant and ask for the menu de degustation. It is not worth the price. Service was the only good thing.

Serving food since the 18 th Century is simply unique. The luxury architecture and the solicitude of the Maitre D'Hotel and of the waiters is simply amazing. Working with the best ingredients always fresh, this Restaurant is some kind forgotten by the new generation, however...More
