The dinner itself was great, once it eventually happened. Andre did a wonderful job and we thoroughly enjoyed it. BUT….. There was a VERY significant communication/scheduling problem. The eatwith email I received confirming Dinner with Andre stated that it would take place at 11:30am. The four of us planned our day (the final day of our vacation) accordingly. We took a taxi to the address listed on the eatwith confirmation email and arrived a few minutes before 11:30am. The door was closed and locked and the room was dark. We knocked, but there was no response. So I called the telephone number for Andre listed on the eatwith confirmation email. A mail voice answered. I told him we were at the venue for Dinner with Andre. He said there must be a misunderstanding because the dinner was scheduled for 8:00pm, not 11:30am. I told him our eatwith confirmation email clearly said dinner was at 11:30am. He apologized and said, “I’m sorry, but there must be some problem with the platform. My schedule says the dinner is at 8:00pm. I’m out of town right now and won’t return until shortly before 8:00pm. Can you come back then?” I told him I’d have to check with the other 3 members of my group. The group was, of course, worried that we’d been scammed and that there wasn’t actually going to be a Dinner with Andre. After much debate, we decided to call the telephone number on the email again at around 7:00pm to check in. When I called shortly after 7:00pm a man answered. I told him I was the person who called at 11:30am and I wanted to confirm that dinner was actually scheduled for 8:00pm.The man apologized again for the scheduling problem and confirmed that the dinner was going to happen, but said, “I’m afraid I’m running a bit late returning to Lisbon. Would you mind coming at 8:30pm, rather than 8:00?” I agreed to do that, but was skeptical that when we returned to the address on the eatwith email no one would be there. We took a taxi back out there, arrived a few minutes before 8:30pm and were warmly greeted by Andre who apologized profusely for the misunderstanding. He said, again, that there must have been some kind of problem with the internet platform because his email from eatwith clearly said dinner was scheduled for 8:00pm, not 11:30am. The rest of the evening was delightful. It was a great way to end our trip. But the communication/scheduling problem very nearly wrecked it and, of course, caused the group a lot of anxiety and required us to significantly change plans for the last day of our trip. If you want me to forward a copy of the eatwith email listing the start time as 11:30am, let me know. Bob Robert S. Wagner

the evening at andré was our first experience with eatwith.com. We had a very funny evening and met another couple from the US. André was a nice and obliging host. He has prepared a simple, traditional meal (starters, appetizer, main course and dessert) with accompanying wines. The evening took place in a room for cooking classes, so that a little lacked the private ambience. If that does not bother you, you can look forward to a nice evening. Enjoy it!

If you have the opportunity to have dinner with Andre , do so, you won’t be disappointed! Sandy and Max
