Let me precede this review by telling you that I find it very hard to eat well in Lisbon. With Portuguese food so heavily based on fish and meat, I find myself constantly struggling to find vegan food. I have found vegetarian restaurants in the past, however up until this point, I’ve been thoroughly disappointed with most of them. Psi changed the entire game.
Finding Psi was like winning the jackpot, as far as vegan food goes. I enjoyed my meal so much during my first visit, that I had to return 2 days in a row. Like most vegetarian restaurants in Lisbon, Psi serves food for lunch until 3 pm and then for dinner starting at 7 pm. In between those hours, coffee and teas are available. Psi is closed on Sunday.
The service at Psi is impeccable. The staff are incredibly nice, attentive and hospitable. Most are very comfortable speaking English. I had the chance to speak with the owner during my second visit and was pleased to learn that Psi is family owned. You can really feel the genuineness in the atmosphere. The ambience is inviting and relaxed. A gazebo-like structure hosts the majority of tables and shelters diners from the chance of rain. Lining the perimeter of the gazebo are tables outside, surrounded by gardens and ponds.
The menu at Psi boasts a diverse selection for vegans. Each dish is full of flavor and perfect in size. You may see the menu here:
The following are our recommendations:
Falafel Salad & Red Thai Curry Indian Curry and Roti
Mango CevicheSamosasBeet Hummus ad Pickled Mushrooms
Psi is a must on your visit to Lisbon. I look forward to many meals there.
