Attractive decor, cozy lighting, attentive service and delicious food make Bistro Edelweiss a great choice if you're look to escape the run-of-the-mill tourist restaurant scene in Lisbon. Although the menu features meat prominently, there are several options for vegetarians. Desserts are all made on-site an are very special. Only downside is that the vegetables in the spätzli seemed to be... More

This place has great food, staff, style, and charm. The 70's retro style is what brought us into this place and the fact that we were not satisfied by our first dinner. We had been striking out with food and let's just say that we finally hit a homerun by coming here. We loved it so much that we came... More

An amazing place - the decor is very 70s Swiss ski-chalet kitsch, but there's so much amazing detail and beautiful design, from the water glasses (70s vintage) and the way the tables are laid, to the lamps and vintage television sets. The food is delicious - home cooked Swiss staples like Spatzli, Zurich Stroganoff and Vol-au-vent. Also, I have an... More

The Bistro was a real discovery! Delicious swiss food, amazing and charming decoration! The owners are very sweet and professional, they make you feel home. The waiter is very charming. The prices are very reasonable. We had an amazing time. The service is very good, it tends to be quite busy in the weekend but never unpleasant. Every plate is... More

A 5/5 with no doubts. The way they serve you with joy, a very creative way of showing the menu, personal appraoch and last but not least: it tastes good: Green Salat, Bratwurst;-), Beetrootsalad and Zuricher speciality were our choices. Choose the variaty of 3 as desert and you leave satisfied. I will return for sure

Totally enjoyed dinner at this place. Service from the waiter Bruno was amazing. He took his time to explain all the meals on the menu plus he was a great laugh. Definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Lisbon.

After reading some reviews about this place on TA I decided to take the family out to try the pleasures of Alpine cousine and I must say they all loved it. I came to Lisbon from Bavaria for vacation and as a portuguese-german descendant I must say this restaurant is the perfect combination for me in Lisbon, so much that... More

Tipical Homemade Food from a Swiss Chef: Best described as "Alpine Cuisine" Adu Wahlen's dishes are refreshing in the summer time and heartwarming in the cooler season. Rosti and Spatzli are always to be found along with Cheese Fondue and Raclette for aficionados. Seasons play a great role in the choice of ingredients used with influences from french, german and italian cuisine. The menu is therefore ideal for many palates from vegetarians to meat lovers.
