Loved the tapas, atmosphere, wines, service, etc. Best fried calamari we had in Portugal; black rice was delicious; and their octopus a solid contender. Staff was fun, attentive and engaging. Although they highly recommended their steak/ribs, these bordered on the inedible... and were far and away the most expensive dishes.

What a fabulous restaurant with Portugese tapas. Fabulous wine and great service by Tiago. We had beef carpaccio, grilled peppers, gazpacho along with cheese and wine boards. ALL were great. The sorbet and chocolate cake ended our night on a great note!

What a find a 100 metres from the Tivoli hotel. Great food excellent service and a very good wine recommended to us. I would have no hesistation in returning. I could only fault it in that its benches for seating. Warning portions are very generous, not like tapas in spain.

We were looking for a place in central Lisbon and this place hit the mark. Great casual atmosphere in a private room. Traditionally "Portuguese made an appetizer with delicious Portuguese wine. Highly recommended

Lovely tapas restaurant. Everything we ate was top notch. Waiter recommended a lovely Douro red to drink. Meal was only slightly ruined by grey haired gentleman sat next to us who was rude as our Portuguese was very limited. We are not all ignorant English speakers we do try and learn the language wherever we go. Not the restaurant's fault obviously! Highly recommend Rubro!
