I guess it is still a touristy part of town. Fresh lobster n crabs that they take out of the tank for u but you will pay accordingly. You have to buy the whole thing which if you went for the whole crab or lobster,...has to be a shared dish because it is too big. Langoustines were very pricey, about 90 euros for 4x creatures, I couldn't bring myself to buy them! But wine and beer are cheap. We ended up having steak, a pork with potatoes dish and shrimp/lobster dish was meant to be a sharing dish I think, it was huge. Generally all done to good standard. The lemonade is American style, not a canned fizzy drinkMore

During our brief stay in Lisbon, we were recommended to come here for lunch and what a good recommendation that was. The menu choice was difficult but, wanting fish for a light lunch, we selected the cod. The portion was much larger than we had...planned but, as it was cooked to perfection, it was so enjoyable just sitting out in the open. If we return to Lisbon, we will definitely come back here.More

We stopped in here for dinner because of the huge fish tanks in the window and inside. Everything had to be fresh, and it was! We started with a pot of clams in a butter and garlic sauce - superb! My wife shared the cod...dish and a large salad. Everything was really good. And the prices were very competitive.More

A venue highly regarded by locals but as it features in most guides many tourists visit. They have outside tables by the busy Avenida da Liberade, not sure what the attraction is as the inside is bright and airy. Lots of Gastropods and crustaceans to...tempt. A shared bowl of clams and crab in the shell with toast set the tone. A couple of huge grilled tiger prawns with a few chips to follow. Some finish with the steak sandwich as “desert”. No room in my case, just a coffee. Recommend booking at busy times.More

One of the beat sea food restaurants. The service was professional, Nunu, our waiter, explained to us what is the best food combination for us (a party of 5) and prevented us from over ordering the food. His recommendations were excellent and so was the...food. We ordered tiger shrimps which were delicious and so were the shells , the mashed potatoes and the deserts. They all came on time. What a delightful evening and dinner. For our sons it was the second time there. When we are in Lisbon again, we will surely revisit.More

Very busy, but it shouldnt be a problem to get a table there. It was full and there was a queue, and it took us approximately 10 minutes to receive a table. Though there was a lot of customers, our service was quick and of...high quality. There was a great selection of food and after ordering it took only a small amount time to receive the food. It was all delicious and we could tell that all the seafood were fresh. It was an excellent representation of the local food you could get from Portugal. Would definitely come back and recommend everyone in Lisbon to try this restaurant out.More

We called ahead for a reservation a few hours before visiting and had no problem getting a table. We had beer, I had the Gambas a bras which was lovely and more than enough food for one person. Ideally, we should have split this dish...and ordered another smaller one to go with it. My partner had the grilled sea bass and was also pleased. Service was attentive but not smothering. There's an al fresco dining area for better weather as well!More

This restaurant is a must during a visit to Lisbon. The tenderloin grilled steak is in the top 3 of steaks I have eaten in my 60+ years. It is cooked to perfection ( ask for medium rare). The sauce is excellent. The service is...excellent inside or out. This restaurant is now open for dine in (in restaurant or outside in the garden along the Av. da Liberdade.

Visited restaurant on recommendation from our hotel and we were not disappointed. Crab dip appetiser was great and the garlic prawns could be the best we ever had. Cod was also well cooked and wine recommendation from the waiter was spot on. They don't take...reservations so expect a short wait for a table.More

We visited in early March, when Portugal introduced emergency measures relating to Covid – 19. Many restaurants had closed. The Restaurant had introduced social spacing rules, and most tables were empty because of this. We were lucky to be able to book a table, the...restaurant was closing next day, for at least a month. We enjoyed our meal here, and the staff remained helpful and polite despite the restaurant’s immanent closure. The décor is simple, like a fish a market, with much of the seafood on display including live lobsters.. We started with garlic prawns which were good, being fresh and an ample portion for two. My partner chose, Porco a Alentejana and I chose Pica Pau, ample portions and very tasty. Over all a good night with freshly cooked food. Wine and beer selections are good. We would recommend. On a further note, we would like to wish all the staff our best wishes with the current Covid -19 emergency measures. Thank you for your good service, we hope you and your families keep safe.More

We first stopped for a quick lunch in the outside eating area and ordered Croque Monsieur. It was OK but not as good as we expected. That evening we ate inside and had sea bass. This meal was fantastic! The fish was cooked to perfection....On our third try, the water recommended the tiger prawns. These were very expensive and less than wonderful. Mixed review, I know but that's how it was.More

I usually is an easy going traveller and can understand when anything is going wrong by mistake. But truly I must say that this place (in relation to the price you pay for the food) is one of the top 3 restaurant of beeing an...awful place. Everything was so bad, the service (if its exists?), the food which was hardly eatable, the chairs were uncomfortable and rickety (maybe in the purpose to have the clients not staying to long). When you had the bill it was an really bad surprise, the bread, the cheese and the crabstew costed a fortune. Of course I could have asked beforehand about the price, but this is a way to trap tourist.works. Furthermore I forget my cap on the table, when returning to retrieve it, nobody know nothing, just shruggering their shoulders. So take my advice-avoid itMore
