Nostalgic Moorish kiosks in Lisbon, gathering places & Portuguese snacks

Lisbon LX Factory Gastrobar ‘Rio Maravilha’: great river views & disappointing experience

Gastrobar Rio Maravilha (Wonderful River) is situated on the fourth floor of one of the nowadays trendy ‘LX factory’ buildings in the¬†Alc√Ęntara (‘bridge’ in Arabic) district in Lisbon, surrounded by huge windows overlooking the Tagus river, the 25 April bridge and the¬†Cristo Rei statue¬†.

Gastrobar Rio Maravilha Lisbon & wonderful view 25 April bridge from a formerly factory building

Very different from the usual ūüôā

We didn’t have to wait long before¬†the friendly welcoming staff¬†seated us at a small table near one of the the huge windows: what a wonderful view!¬†The multi flowered designed chairs and the bright pink coloured¬†outfits chosen for the waitresses are quite surprising.

Gastrobar Rio Maravilha, ‘LX factory’ Lisbon & the restaurant’s decor

The whole space is very different from the usual. But you can expect this from those who already are experienced of managing remarkable spaces in Lisbon¬†like unique bar ‘Pensao Amor’ in a former red light district and restaurant ‘Casa do Pasto’¬†, with sophisticated Portuguese cuisine.¬†A few months ago this place,¬†‘Rio Maravilha’ was opened, influenced by Brazilian flavors.

Gastrobar Rio Maravilha, ‘LX factory’ Lisbon: squid salad & grilled mushrooms

We decided to order a few small dishes like Salade de Lulas (squid salad, grilled sweet potatoes, onion and croutons) ‚ā¨ 15.60, Cogumelos na Brasa (grilled mushrooms, foliage of sour cream and chestnuts) ‚ā¨ 13.70, Ovo BT (egg BT)¬†‚ā¨ 9.80,¬†Hamb√ļrguer de Novilho (veal) ‚ā¨ 9.10,¬†¬†and a bottle of white wine: VB Filoco ‚ā¨ 12.00.

Surprising : Ovo BT, a poached egg accompanied by cream cheese with some marmalade, parmesan cheese and ibérico pancetta.

Gastrobar Rio Maravilha, ‘LX factory’ Lisbon & wonderful views

Disappointing

The Hamb√ļrguer de Novilho (veal) was not such a good experience: we ate just a little bit of it, due to the unpleasant ‘aftertaste’. According to the waitress nothing was wrong, but both we had no good feeling, also afterwards… (the restaurant is aware of our complaint, they¬†asked to come again to enjoy a better experience, that’s all ūüôĀ¬† ). BTW: the hamburger was not mentioned on our bill.
