The Decadente

One of the first restaurants in Lisbon to find the proper balance between a good mood, modern Portuguese food and affordable prices. All of this inside of a hostel, back in the days before the big tourist swarm came to Lisbon. In the meantime other places with similar concepts appeared, but The Decadente is still a good bet when: 1) there's many of you, and you don't want to spend much money; 2) there's many of you, and you want to have drinks in the same place as dinner; 3) there's only two of you, and you want a cool place to be.

Time Out tips:

– The outer terrace is heated in wintertime, and there's an outdoors bar.

– Two safe bets: “the Miradouro's best steak” and the seafood risotto.

– On weekends brunch is served from 12pm to 4pm.

Stunning decor and great vibe. The bar to the restaurant boast a cosy yet modern environment, with both the indoor and outdoor seating available (with retractable roof and heating lamps available in winter).  The service and waitstaff were extremely friendly and accommodating, especially when we raised concerns about some of the dishes. The meat was overcooked and unfortunately the Ceviche was very bland. The duck on the other hand was beautifully tender and tasty. It is not the right place if you are on a budget, but great environment for a couple of drinks. Again hat off to the service, the staff was excellent.

O nome, na minha opinião, é original, mas pouco lisongeiro. Já visitei este restaurante uma vez, só não repito porque o meu orçamento mensal normalmente só dá para uma tasca por mês. Mas aqui também pode sempre beber um copo antes de se atirar à noite das ruas do Bairro Alto.
