Description: Mediterranean restaurant with Portuguese Wines in the National Theatre D. Maria II
Reviewed 22 December 2016

The space where Café Garrett is located is Lisbon National theatre, so the building itself is amazing, inside you'll see great columns mixed with photos of the biggest Portuguese stage icons, all in a very classical way.
The restaurant uses very stylish furniture that contrasts but blends perfectly with the surroundings.
Leopoldo, the Chef and owner is a man of all trades, architect and a well travelled person, knows how to make you at home in his home.
The food is very detailed and tasty, picking hints and influences from top products and techniques from his birth region, Alentejo, southern Portugal, Leopoldo recreates them in a modern way, making you taste the tradition on a urban way.

Good wine cellar primarily based on the same Portuguese region.

The Deserts, oh the deserts, make sure to taste the walnut pudding its amazing.

So when at Lisbon site seeing the down town be sure to save sometime to have a meal there, you surely wont regret it.

A modern and tasty approach to old flavors. The welcome was so warm we felt at home in one of Lisbon's most important theaters. The location is perfect, right in the heart of the city. Good wine selection, marvelous desserts. I would definitely recommend it.

Had a great dinner, and the owner Leopoldo beard us asking for different meals so we could try from each other. Traditional portuguese food creativity well cooked. The wine list its short but with high quality. The service its great and a good price/quality ratio.

We had a wonderful lunch at Café Garrett, a new restaurant located on the lobby of the Dona Maria theater right by Rossio! The owner is an architect who loves food and so you get the best of both worlds, a beautiful setting and a delicious menu. We tried the black pork secretos which were perfectly grilled and accompanied by delicious migas. The grilled corvina accompanied by seafood rice was amazing. The dessert was a surprisingly delicious ice cream made of serra cheese. The owner is a wine connoisseur so the wine list is great. Both the food and wine are modestly priced.The service is gracious and the atmosphere festive. You can have lunch or dinner with a view of the iconic Rossio train station. Highly recommended!
