Inexpensive Russian veg food

3 Posted on 04 / 21 / 2014

Like others have said, there are a variety of dishes to choose from here, and you can get them in a mix-and-match format. At the waiter's suggestion, we got the three-item meal that is intended for two people to share.

The food came out quickly, which was good, but it was also clear that the food was pre-made and just served up. And though the presentation was nice, the food was just OK. It had a Russian edge to it (cabbage rolls, lots of dill in the salad, etc.) but it was only sort of lukewarm.

Still, we were pretty satisfied after eating, even if it wasn't the most memorable meal ever. For two people sharing a meal and two drinks, it was €11, with tip. So definitely not a bad place to go now and again. Just not worth going out of the way for.

Pros: Inexpensive food, Vegan options
Cons: Lukewarm, pre-made food

Good (but not great) food, limited selection

3 Posted on 04 / 02 / 2014

I went here for lunch with a group around 12:30. We beat the crowd by about 15 minutes. By 1:00, the place was full with a line out of the door.

The menu was made up of five main dishes which could be ordered in a "normal" plate with sides or in a combo-plate with two main dishes and sides. The normal plate was plenty of food for lunch.

The food was ultimately good, but not great. Some of the side dishes were very tasty, but the general conclusion was that the food wasn't anything special. It tended to be one-note without a lot of complexity. Of course, finding vegetarian food in Lisbon isn't a simple matter, so it was very welcome in that respect.

The waiter was a big smug, and tried to talk us into ordering more wine and food than we needed. Otherwise the service was good.

Pros: Good food, Reasonably priced
Cons: Pushed us to buy more

Very good food, cheap (you can eat well with 6 euros), friendly.

Pros: Very good food, cheap, friendly

Good food, great value

5 Posted on 07 / 20 / 2013

During lunch, which is the only time I visited, Oasis offers around 4 dishes to choose from--you can try combinations of them or just have a lunch with one of the 4 dishes. When I was there, 2 out of the 4 options were vegan, so I went with the two-dish combo, which also came with a delicious group of vegetable salads. Of the 2 vegan dishes, one was a kind of seitan curry, the other, if I remember correctly, was a bean dish. Both were great. It was nice to get such a filling meal which wasn't just a pile of pasta or bread. Service is fast and friendly. Food and juices are CHEAP. It's worth it to venture to this neighborhood for this restaurant alone; if you're in the area to visit the Gulbenkian Museum, then definitely go to Oasis. [edit by staff]

Pros: Delicious, healthy food, Cheap, Fast, attentive service
Cons: Limited (but good) menu

Friendly and good value

4 Posted on 06 / 23 / 2013

A busy friendly restaurant in a nice part of Lisbon. We ate here one evening in June 2013 and found it to be of good value. There was only one vegan main dish on the menu, however.

Unlike a previous reviewer we had a really good week in Lisbon, truly one of the world's great cities. A city on a a river with trams, squares, monuments and museums. Don't miss the wonderful, free, Museum of Electricity.

Pros: Friendly staff, Nice environment
Cons: Limited vegan choice.

Lifesaver

5 Posted on 05 / 08 / 2013

In this instance, it is impossible to separate my overflow of passion from objective judgement. Lisbon was truly an apocalyptic wasteland for my partner and I, but Oasis was, at the risk of being redundant, an oasis in an otherwise empty and unforgiving environment. The staff were exceedingly friendly, despite the language barrier, and the food was a hearty russo-vegan fusion, the perfect retreat to come to after a day of ugliness and alienation in one of the most wretched and cold cities that I have had the misfortune to set foot in. Affordability topped the cake at Oasis; at €8 for a massive plate of food plentiful enough for two with good strong coffee afterwards, this restaurant was a daily staple of our trip. The interior has a sort of kitsch to it which would otherwise be off-putting but somehow works with the overall humbleness of the place. All in all it was a relaxing, cheap, and enjoyable place to sit down for a bite after a day's worth of staring in despairing awe at gutted buildings and demolished streets full of the elderly and insane, and perhaps a trip to the finest cultural establishment Lisbon may boast of: a tile museum. I sincerely hope that other visitors can find a gem or two in this urban void of a town, but when that fails you can always count on Oasis for refuge and comfort.

Tasty, unique, and fast

5 Posted on 11 / 05 / 2012

My husband and I ate lunch here on our recent trip. There are a handful of rotating items to choose from, and we chose to share 3 items, which were all excellent and fresh. We especially enjoyed the mango tofu. I had fresh juice with it, which was also tasty. We ate in the front sun room area, which had a nice atmosphere, though the tables were a little crowded together. The waitress spoke English and was pleasant and helpful.

Pros: fast, good portions, tasty food

From Moscow to Lisbon

4 Posted on 08 / 24 / 2012

A Russian owned veggie place in Lisbon: how bizarre but how brilliant too. Just opposite the Gulbenkian Gardens on a pleasant street with outside roofed pavement seating area and fairly spacious inside dining room. Basically it's 3 main courses 2 of which were vegan on the day of visit 24.08.12 (creamy seitan casserole, lasagne and tofu a l'orange). You can ask for 1, 2 or 3 dishes served with rice and salad starting from €4.75 for 1 main. The house wine is nice and there is free wifi. Give it a go, it will not disappoint.

Pros: nice staff, decent food , good value
Cons: small menu

Tasty healthy cuisine

4 Posted on 08 / 20 / 2012

Good food, friendly service, excellent price/quality. We paid 1,10 EUR for a bowl of yummie soup, en 6 EUR for a plate with 2 dishes (you have 4 dished to choose from), a salad and rice/grain and 1,5 EUR for a large bottle of water. Only minus: the design/decoration can be improved. Not really cosy. But this is compensated more than enough by the good food. Very recommended.

Excellent value and friendly welcome

4 Posted on 07 / 14 / 2012

We (2 vegetarians) visited on a Wednesday evening in July 2012. It was pretty busy but we were served very quickly by a friendly and efficient waiter who appeared to be doing all the work by himself! He told us tthat he didn't speak English but then he explained the menu to us in English, certainly he wan't fluent but he explained everything we needed to know. The food arrived quickly and although it's not gourmet, it's good home-cooked food and very generous protion sizes. We paid about 15 euros in total including one drink each, which we thought was excellent value. This place is highly recommended if you are hungry and don't want to go somewhere fancy.

Pros: Good value, Big portions, Friendly staff
Cons: Far from city centre

Tasty and cheap

5 Posted on 08 / 25 / 2011

Love this place, very much like Bio, on the other side of town, but I prefer the staff here - maybe also because it's 5 minutes from home!
They open for lunch and dinner, and offer a good variety of home-cooked food with different dishes every day using soya, seitan and tofu. Check with staff for vegan dishes. Nice selection of desserts, fruit teas, and coffee.
Also perfect if you're visiting the Gulbenkian across the road. It hasn't been open long, and summer is always quiet in Lisbon, so we've not yet had a problem getting a place, but I imagine when people get back from holidays you may have to book.
Highly recommended - while it's not haute cuisine, it's tasty, good value and very friendly.

Pros: Friendly staff, great value, variety
