    By far our nicest meal in Lisbon. Food was amazing with brilliant twists on the flavour. Wish was staying longer in Lisbon so could go back. Service impeccable and genuine.

    We found this restaurant because we were searching for somewhere nice to eat that catered for gluten free. What a little gem, beautiful decor, simple and very classy . I was told that almost every dish could be made gluten free so that was great. The food was beautifully presented, very tasty and good value for fine dining . He portions were quite small but as the food was rich it wouldn’t have been possible for me to eat more of it. The only fault was the lack of choice of desert for gluten free but I had a pavlova which was stunning to look at and tasted gorgeous .

    Open, friendly service. Great chef: all four dishes were beautiful and had wonderful taste. Especially Ceviche, the twist they give is exceptional!

    We loved it. One of the nicest meals in Lisbon. The girl who looked after us was really nice and gave us good recommendations for wine. Justin came out to see how we liked our food.

    The best food we ate in Lisbon. The chef came and asked us how we had enjoyed the meal. Everything was perfect.

    I truly enjoyed my experience at Downunder by Justin Jennings. The staff were welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about the menus. It reminded me of the wonderful Australian food and its quality I am a custom to. The flavours gave me that warm nostalgia of my home country of Australia. I was even lucky enough to meet Justin and applauded him on his great food. Thank you so much for a great evening!

    There’s 2 floors, we sat downstairs. The place is nice, the dishes were amazing. The pork is one of the best I’ve tried, the fish was unforgettable and the duck delicious. The first course was good and the povlova dessert delicious. The wine selection is ok, there’s no pairing with the chef’s menu. We choose the australian wines by glass. The white was ok, but the red was really good. We tried the first 5 courses menu because we didn’t want to eat alligator and deer, but we exchange the dessert. Great experience, definitely recommended!!!

    36 hour pork belly with hand-cut fries. Not what I expected but oh my. So good. Wife and I had two different deserts.. both very good. Got served by 3 different people which caused some confusion..

    We visited three times in five days - that says it all! You'd have to search hard to find anything better. Technically excellent cooking, fine ingredients, really well presented and perfect balance of flavours.

    Got welcomed with a smile from a wonderful waitress that made us feel welcomed and relaxed. Me and my significant other ordered a bottle of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 main dishes and 2 desserts. Absolute top class for the buck. Growing up in Sweden I'm used to pay the same price for a pint and a mediocre main dish for the same price of what we paid here. Minus the service, minus the quality and minus the gastronomical experience. The food here is delicious, experimental and the ambience in the restaurant makes you enjoy the food even more. Nothing special really, not overly fancy, they dont try hard with super pretentious interior. They let the plate of food talk for itself which is exactly what I wished for and craved. Absolute top class food. The contexture of the food, how the flavours took you to a new world with different stories and experiences in every bite you take. Will absolutely come back more times. I recently moved to Lisbon and this visit left me more inspired than ever. I didn't get the waitress name - but a big thank you to her, from the swedish couple Anton and Alva with reservation 18/10 20:00 - you were absolutely fenomenal!

    Simply put, if you're in Lisbon you must visit Downunder. Be sure to book. The chicken risotto was as moist and flavoursome as you like. My wife had the Corvina fish dish and that too was simply stunning. We both had a lovely evening here and would highly recommend it if you're looking for something a little more romantic.

    Found this place by accident online. Very small but ever so elegant. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. We got the 5 course pre fix meal. Was worth every bit of it. Please make this a choice if your looking for a nice cozy excellent night out.

    This the best restaurant I’ve been to. The execution of each dish was remarkable. When you’re left guessing what each ingredient is, you know you have a good dish. The pork belly is a must as is the kangaroo steak. Both were unreal!

    Amazing food, with excellent, imaginative combinations of flavours. As it was a work day lunch, I had the Estrella free, alcohol free beer and it was a really good option. Staff were extremely friendly, as ever.

    It was my wife’s birthday and Justin ‘s lovely waitress presented her with a birthday celebration cake ( and non blowing out candle). Justin came to our table and he was a humble and lovely young man. The food was different but excellent, I would really recommend you visit this restaurant when living or visiting Lisbon.
