To be fair, I wouldn't recommend it

This is the restaurant of a hotel. It's in a fantastic spot, Praca do Carmo, and the terrace is really nice.

Howerver, the food is nothing special: the beyond burger is served with some lettuce and two slices of tomato, and the bread is not great. The vegetable tempura is too heavy, and the one I got was 100% pepper (spme variety would have been nice). Finally, from what I was told, the fish was nothing special.

I wasn't surprised to see that the place was empty at 20:45 on a Friday evening...

Vegan options

The local is very close the the Convento do Carmo, has on the menu a vegan section with mainly italian pasta (spaghetti bolognese, with spinach or sauté vegetables). As italian I appreciate the effort for the bolognese which was very very very far from the real one but the portion was very big!

With a visit

Modern restaurant with slightly reduced vegan options during the pandemic. It was one of the few places I was able to eat with my meat eating friends. I had the mushroom risotto and friends had fish. We were all happy with the food and the waiter was charming. Be aware there are 2 other restaurants with similar names in the same street!

Pros: Beyond burger, risottos and a pasta dish.

very dissapointing

many vegan options but the two we had (risotto and tofu) were not great especially the tofu was very flavourless served with bland spinach and 4 tiny potatos. the two fish dishes our friends had were very bland as well. for the prices, definitely not worth it!

Pros: lots of vegan options

Cons: very expensive, very long wait, food was very bland

Fine dining

The setting is very chic - a great choice If you want to impress a date or out of town friends😉they serve Portuguese traditional dishes some of which have been veganised (separate vegan menu) where you can choose from red bean rice with green bean tempura, a seitan with veggies dish, a bean stew, a risotto (ok this one not a Portuguese classic but still). The quality in the preparation of dishes is very high and the service is excellent. Very kind and attentive staff.

Sophisticated and delicious

Lovely fancy restaurant, perfect for our last night in Lisbon. I got the risotto which was gorgeous. My brother however who’s vegetarian got the seitan steak and veggies and found it too garlicky and salty.

Een bladzijde vol vegan

Een luxe ogende tent, veel wit en licht maar met een pagina vol vegan opties. Het eten was lekker, het personeel erg vriendelijk alleen geen vegan dessert op de kaart. De prijzen waren goed voor wat we kregen. Zeker een aanrader voor vegans

Yummy dishes, picturesque square and great price

After visiting hostoric ruins of a beautiful XIII century church, we went to a chic-looking restaurant nearby that, to our surprise, had a full page in their menu dedicated to vegans.

Seitan stake and vegan risotto were little salty, but so flavorful and filling nevertheless.

The restaurant looked chic and neat, but the prices were not as high considering the quality and location.

Also, I was pleasantly surprised they serve a full blown teapot instead of a little cup of tea:)

I will definitely come back!!

Pros: Great variety of veg dishes, Beautiful views outside and cozy interior inside, Serves big pots of tea instead of little cups

Cons: No vegan desserts (to my knowledge)
