Excellent, fresh seafood!

My family enjoyed a wonderful meal at Lob's on July 23, 2015. We all loved it! GREAT service, wonderful seafood, and wonderful atmosphere.

Decided to visit Lob restaurant after a recommendation in the Lonely Planet and thankfully we weren't disappointed. We sat inside in the welcome air conditioning and were made to feel incredibly welcome. The menu offers a good choice despite specialising in fish. We had a shared sea food platter starter which was simple and tasty followed by salmon and grilled... More

Good fish and great service. Reasonably priced yet portions could be a bit bigger. Tried their octopus, oysters and salmon all their dishes tasted great! Was a nice experience overall!

Decided to go after reading the reviews. I was disappointed. Should have stuck to my original decision of going to another seafood restaurant near the station. Oh well... The smoked seafood was a plate of smoked fish! Probably from the supermarket as it is so so salty. The pasta dish in the foil thingy was equally salty. Sadly, I ate... More

The seafood is so fresh and good. Service and atmosphere are excellent. A bit on the more expensive side and not the biggest portions. If you love seafood, this is the place.

I went here with two friends of mine and I have to say, it was the best meal I've had since we began our interrail trip. As a friend of seafood this place really met my wishes. The price niveau is decent when considering that seafood tends to have steeper prices than usual. Highly recommended!

We went into this restaurants without checking its score, and it is surprisingly good!! The seafood pasta was absolutely amazing that we ordered a second one. We ordered a plate of lobsters and other seafood, which was great too.

I went to Lobs with a good friend who lives up the street from the restaurant. As much as we enjoy Fuor Dacqua and tend to eat there once every other trip or so, Lobs dining experience is more relaxed, laidback and homestyle version. (and about 1/3rd of the price) . The quality of seafood is outstanding in a non-seafood... More
