Description: Quite the quirky atmosphere from food to context set in a unique rooftop with a ridiculous view of the Castle, old Lisbon town and Tagus river. Whether on the intimate Terrace or at the Bar our chef will provide you a rediscovery of flavors and textures through the least expected combinations. The Insólito is the perfect place to gather groups, meetings and events, with a maximum capacity of 65 people

Quirky, trendy, top floor bar with great décor. Views from the terrace are spectacular, especially at dusk/night time when you can see the City lit up. However staff were not very friendly, service was excruciatingly slow, and cocktail menu was limited. Not at all welcoming

Stepping into this restaurant feels like stepping into Alice’s wonderland. It is charmingly decorated and you are greeted by the friendliest staff. We were served by Fernanda, who advised us on the menu and even let me practice my (quite imperfect) Portuguese on her. The cocktails she recommended were fantastic, but it was the dessert that was the real treat. A chocolate tart with ginja sorbet and a shot of port sounded pretty good to us. It tasted extraordinary.

The only thing that we wish we’d done was to book for a dry day and sit out on the terrace. Next time!

We were referred to the hotel by the excellent staff at Lisboan Appointments. It was a great recommendation. From the welcome on arrival to our departure the staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was delicious across the board: some unusual combinations all of which worked well, including the Wagyu beef with coffee. Starters were light and tasty, including a plate of cheese and sausage, lobster risotto and scallops with beets and scallop. For mains we enjoyed turbot, cod, scallops and the beef. All were superb. We had a bottle of Dao Reserva (I think) which was also subtle and tasty. Combined with the fantastic view, this was a memorable and enjoyable celebration dinner.

We came in February and the nights were kind of freezing, so the tarpaulin was down on the roof terrace, but I can see how this would be pretty spectacular in warmer months. The food was standard mediterranean fare, but well executed. The lamb and cod dishes were very good. Our waiter was bonkers, in a good way. Overall this place is probably a little style over substance but it was very enjoyable.
