The most honest vegan restaurant in Lisbon

Every time I 'm in Lisbon, this place is a must go. The menu is very thoughtful and the chef plans the menu of the week in advance and offers you plant-based dishes of higher quality. It's also a space of gastronomic creativity, never let's me down. Excellent food, and personalized service. Highly highly recommended ! :)

Good food experience.

There is a set menu of three dishes that changes every few days. They seem to be going for a gourmet-type experience and the price reflects that. The dishes were tasty, but they didn't blow me away. I hope to go back and bump the rating.

Pros: Unique flavours, You get to taste three dishes

Cons: On the expensive side, 250ml of water for almost 2€? Come on!

Lovely place

Ideal when visiting Parque das Nações. A bit pricier than other veggie places because they are more gourmet. Not a lot of seating so a reservation is recommended.

Great food quality

You can choose between a mix of the 3 dishes of the day (that are never the same) or the house salad. Food is usually very good quality. It’s one of my favorite spots in Lisbon to have lunch

Pros: Food quality

Cons: Only lunch, Only weekdays

Beautiful place, food was okay

We ate the Tuesday menu and he was ok, but not better. The dessert was excellent (lemon cake) and saved the day with my non-vegan companions

Amazing Food

The food here is really gourmet, delicious, and much better more refined and well-spiced than what you find in most vegan places. Loved the beetroot and dill soup. Lovely atmosphere. Totally worth a visit!

Pros: Delicious food, Lovely atmosphere, Helpful friendly staff

Cons: Busy, get there early to get a table

Amazing! Very kind staff!

I would recommend any vegan to come here! It’s twelve minutes away from the airport (for those who need to eat a good vegan meal after landing in Lisbon.)

Pros: Good Quality + Inexpensive

A must visit for not only vegans but especially vegans.

I was lucky enough to be taken to this absolute gem of a restaurant in Lisbon. The food is so fresh , so carefully prepared, beautifully presented and the service is supreme. I would eat here every day if it was near me, and whenever I am back in Lisbon I will return. Bravo to the chef/owners and the staff for creating this fantastic dining experience for all those who are in Lisbon. Bravo!!

Pros: Completely vegan, Varied menu., Attentive and helpful service.

Qualidade e dedicação

O Miss Saigon, ao introduzir o prato de degustação como medida de combate ao desperdício alimentar, tornou-se, no meu entender, num excelente exemplo do que deve ser um restaurante vegan. Só com este aspecto ganha logo a minha simpatia. Depois, é uma cozinha pensada, estudada, na qual é possível saborear a dedicação, o profissionalismo e a paixão em cada garfada, oferecendo-nos uma viagem do palato a vários regiões do mundo. Resumindo, a comida é muito bem confecionada e deliciosa.

Pleasant experience

Went there with the family and a few carnivore friends during Eurovision. I think we may have came near closing time in the afternoon (double check the times before you visit), but the staff showed us no obvious signs of dissatisfaction of our being there.

Being six guests, we got to choose a number of the dishes on offer, and generally the quality of the food was very good. The freshness of the locale and interesting decor probably raised the whole tasting experience a notch, but a visit to a restaurant is not only about the food we are given. We left there a happy group.

Pros: All vegan, Near(ish) the main arena outside Lisbon

We went here after the kitchen was closed, but we were offered a dish which they still had, nevertheless. It was a delicious, healthy and light meal.

Perfect if you coming or going to the airport

This cute and very modern vegan restaurant is close to the airport and easy to reach from Oriente or Moscavide station. I visited when I arrived and left Lisbon. This way could try 2 different meals. Both times chose the plate that includes all 3 dishes of the day. Because every day chef Claudia Salu creates a new meal and the whole team takes a lot of care. I loved their food and their extraordinary kindness. Visiting in September I found a table easily. You might find a bit higher prices here but this is not a bistro- this is fine dining! (Or fine lunching :)) You should definitely try the fresh juices, soup and of course the amazing deserts!

Pros: Amazing deserts, Very friendly staff

We got there at last

I was impressed with this place. It's very modern and super professional. After years of trying we eventually got here at the right time. It's only open during the week for lunch. We enjoyed a good tasting selection of tofu and seitan dishes and some wine. The food is really good and very nicely priced. I think we paid €9 for a plate of one of the dishes of the day or you could mix all 3 for pretty much the same price. It's not central but definitely worth visiting.

Pros: good food , modern , friendly staff

Cons: bit out of the city

Delicious, tasty food, and top-notch service!

I was in Lisbon for a conference and was thrilled to discover that there was a vegan restaurant within walking distance from my hotel at the Oriente metro stop. To find the restaurant, just walk to street behind the Vasco da Gama mall and turn right with the mall behind you. Follow the road past the construction and when you see a little "park" on the right side of the road, cross over and follow it up to find the restaurant.

The menu varies daily, thanks to which I never had to eat the same thing twice, even eating there every day for lunch and taking away a meal for dinner. They learned my name the second day I was there - nothing makes you feel at home like being greeted with a smile and your name when you walk in the door.

If you're in Lisbon and you're a vegan or just veggie-curious, do yourself a big favor and head on over to Miss Saigon to enjoy a wonderful meal in a warm and friendly environment. No matter what you order, you won't go wrong here.

Food is nice but very expensive

I like Miss Saigon....the food is good, you know? There are enough vegan options, although, it is a bit limited. The presentations of the dishes is also nice. Staff is ok. The place is small but well decorated. The dessert was one of the best vegan desserts I've ever had (apple strudel). But the price...oh my...way too expensive for what you're having. I had a main dish (tofu with rice, wich was a bit dry and not marinated), natural juice (pulp mixed with water, so poor taste), dessert and coffee. Paid 16€...this is expensive for Lisbon. And I was still a bit hungry in the end.

Pros: Tasty vegan food, Well located

Cons: Small portions, Very expensive, Doesn't serve dinners

best Vegan restaurant in Lisbon

This place is amazing I recommend booking a reservation since it's only open from 12 to 4 pm but it is 1000% worth it, best food experience in my entire trip to Lisbon and it is ultra healthy and chic. Loved Miss Saigon.

Absolutely delicious

Went here for a weekday lunch and am really glad I booked! Had a freshly squeezed orange juice and the taster platter of soy meatballs with batatas bravas, tofu moqueca and beans and vegan sausage with rosemary, served with rice and a salad. All of the food was extremely tasty, so I decided I'd better have a dessert, too. The lemon posset with biscuit, blueberries and raspberries was super citrus-y and absolutely divine. Loved it and would definitely love to go back.

Pros: Delicious, Delicious, Delicious

Cons: Need to reserve, Small space, But expensive
