Honestly, the seafood plate is just awesome. We were a group of 13 persons, just reserved 1 hour before going and the food was absolutely delicious. The waiter suggested us to take 2 big plates for each 90€ and 1 small plate for 45€. At first we thought this would never be enough but then came a cold plate with... More

http://www.restaurantevaledorio.com/ We are a family of four. We took one of the Lisbon walking/tasting tours and we visited Cacilhas on that tour, so we knew a few things, such as how to catch the ferry across the river and that there were a number of seafood combination restaurants within walking distance of the ferry terminal. We figured we would give... More

We were 3 and we ask for "misto de marisco" or seafood mix wich brings crab, lobster, boiled shrimps, clams and "guilho style" prawns and only paid 40 euros for ali this. The place was awsome, the waiters were very nice with us and it was definately an experiente to repeat..

Having travelled across the river by Ferry we were advised to eat here, excellent advice. The cold beer was very welcome as was the bread and sardine paste, the shrimp dish gorgeous and the service very friendly.

This restaurant serves a variety of good portuguese fish and seafood dishes! The best thing about it is the price, which is really fair (grilled dourade platter with sides for 8 € for example). Unfortunately its quiet loud in the restaurant as it's usually pretty packed. Thus it's nothing for a romantic dinner or anything, but if you don't expect... More

The food we ate was absolutely superb! We had "arroz de marisco" and the kids the Bitoque. The servings were enormous, so much so that we left a lot of food untouched. We did not have deserts but they had a good variety. The wine was also very good. Considering it was New Years Eve the place was packed but... More

This place is actually very crowded and very noisy, but they do offer some quite good sea-food. We were at eight persons and had two of the "Mega Especial" (one for 4 pax) menus with lobster, crab, clams, shrimps and grilles prawns. Some of the seafood seems to been frozen before as of the texture but the taste remains very... More

We took the ferry out from Cais do Sodre to Almada to get closer to Christo Rei and to see Lisbon from the other side of the Tagus. There are many restaurants when you arrive in the port and Norma selected this one. Bead & sardine pate, grilled sea bass for Norma, prawns in oil & piri piri for me,... More

Outstanding service, amazing food at a very cheap price. My wife and I had 2 beers, 1L of Sangria, appetizers, 12 shrimp, a huge portion of salmon and octopus for 34 euro. The salmon was the best we have ever had. This restaurant is definitely worth the ferry ride over from Lisbon.
