From the crew to the venue to the amazing delish food… food temple is a must. After going there for the first time… I knew that was the place I wanted to take my friends for my birthday: and it was the best choice. As...I had the first phone conversation with the Chef I knew it was the right choice as we “brainstormed” the whole experience for the event. The wow experience I had when I went there for the first time was the same experience I wanted my friends to have. And they all loved it. The food, the whole crew and the atmosphere was lit. Thank you. I want it to be a tradition to celebrate my birthday thereMore

The food was good, quite nice flavour but needed more seasoning in some as per my taste. Portions were little as compared to the price. Ambience and customer service was great. Also, they dont accept international cards but if you dont have enough cash then...the nearest cash machine is just on the next street so not a big deal.More

Very tasty food and great service. The starters just melt in your mouth. The staff had some good recommendation of organic wine. If you are a vegan this place should be your Mecca. I am not but I am worried this place might turn me...into one.More

This small plant-based restaurant was recommended by our accommodation host as one of the best vegan restaurants in Lisbon. The restaurant is tucked away a small street in Alfama old town. It’s small, with an intimate but lively and friendly atmosphere. We particularly liked the...open kitchen so we could watch the service while we were sat at our table. Service was delightful. Our waitress was friendly and keen for a joke, she made great recommendations regarding the food and drink menu. The restaurant prioritises local and seasonal food and this was reflected in the small food menu. We ordered all the dishes between the three of us and were not disappointed. The dishes were presented beautiful, with intricate attention to detail both visually and gastronomically. The flavours were delicious. Highly recommend the broccoli soup starter if you visit in Spring. The desserts were the least overwhelming part of the evening and these took a little while to come as well. Mid-range prices but good value for money. If you’re a vegan/veggie in Lisbon you must visit.More

Downtown Lisbon has a fantastic selection of vegan restaurants and Food Temple really stood out. We dined outside, on the staircase where the restaurant had a clever set up to accommodate guests. We were joined by our friends, a family of four with two young...children. Everyone had a great time. The food was unique and delicious. The wine we ordered that night was probably one of the best bottles we had during our time in Portugal, and the service was so attentive and kind. I can't recommend this enough for vegan or omnivores who are open to appreciating the art of vegan cooking.More

Everything was so delicious. Normally I only have one course, but I had to go for starter, main and dessert. Very creative cuisine and love for detail. Each course was an experience itself. Very friendly and attentive staff.

Vegan restaurant with imaginative menu. Quite small inside but plenty of outside tables. Not the widest choice but every dish was outstanding.

Hello Tinus, We have a machine that accepts Portuguese cards only. Foreign credit cards won't be accepted, so in case you are coming from elsewhere, it would be best to be prepared with cash :) Thank you!
