    The most amazing shrimp risotto I’ve ever had. Amazing flavors and great sized portion. My wife had the duck which was also mouth watering and perfectly cooked. Great attentive friendly staff in lovely location.

    Nice location. Marina attended us with a big smile. The waiter was a little inexperienced , but maybe cause he was new. Food was good

    Were there on a Monday evening so the place was very slow. The waitstaff was attentive and helpful. The food was good. The only negative was being seated right next to another couple when there was ample seating elsewhere which would have provided more privacy. Having said that I suppose we could have requested another table if it was that important!

    Delicious food, great wine, nice service. Currently the Eurovision Village is right next to it, so it's probably a little more noisy than usual.

    Food was not good. My husband didn’t eat at all. Everything was very salty. I paid 180 euros per person for nothing. Not enough space and very crowded. We are very disappointed.

    Shocking and rude device from the so called ‘managers’. Very poorly cooked food and pathetic portion sizes relative to the prices and location. Terrible house wine which is a real shock for a Portuguese restaurant.

    We have had a lovely evening at Populi. The food (e.g. mushroom risotto and white chocolate fondant, on recommendation of some of you down here at the review section) was very good. Luan made sure we have everything we needed and was happy to give us more information about the food, wines or even the statue on the square. In short: lovely evening, great food and thanks Luan!

    The restaurant is in a lovely location overlooking the main square . Service excellent and food was lovely . Recommend trying one of the cataplanas - their speciality

    The selection of the menu for restaurant week was really good. As we were a group we got to try all the available options and were very pleased with it all, especially the salmon tartare. Our waiter Reuben was excellent from start to finish, a very friendly person who made our overall experience at Populi more enjoyable.

    I had a nice dinner at Populi. Started with a nice variation of codfish. As main course the cataplana was very nice. And as desert a nice white chocolate fondant.

    Very nice spot that overlooks the river. Service was excellent and the food was great! It's not your typical Portoguese restaurant, and some locals find it a bit too touristy, but we loved it!

    A good location and great service. Wide selection of food however a little overpriced.

About the restaurant

Situado numa das Praças mais antigas da cidade e agora justamente recuperada, o Populi é um café-restaurante que reflecte bem o novo ambiente que se vive em Lisboa: cosmopolita, dinâmico, contemporâneo, vibrante. O pé direito de quase 8 metros e o chão de mosaicos em roseta a preto e branco ecoam a Lisboa antiga, agora aconchegada em confortáveis cadeirões, num ambiente simultaneamente acolhedor e elegante.

Com um conceito misto de gastronomia, arquitectura e decoração, apelando a uma boa refeição com ingredientes portugueses. Num tempo especialmente mexido no panorama dos restaurantes, o Populi inspirou-se nos temas clássicos da horta, mar e prado, completados por uma carta de vinhos diversificada que convida a ficar pela tarde ou noite.
