Expert review of A Tapadinha

Lisbon’s only Russian restaurant is a fun night of vodka, music and top food.

Truly excellent Russian fare (yes, I was surprised too) is served in a setting of Cyrillic-scripted constructivist posters, wooden dolls and austere classical Russian music.

Food and drink: 

Traditional Russian cuisine such as sturgeon, dumplings and borsch.

Recommended dishes: 

I always have the steak tartar – a deliciously hearty and rich stew of butter-tender raw minced beef mixed with crunchy vegetables.

Ambience: 

Diners are plied with shots of vodka throughout the meal, creating a fun and raucous vibe.

Service: 

You’ll be full of so much vodka, by the end of the night you might have to be carried out by the staff, which they’re happy to do. Sort of.

Location: 

It’s in a bit of an obscure spot under the foot of the Ponte 25 de Abril bridge.

Price advice: 

I usually spend about 30 euros, which includes a fair few beers and vodkas.
