The best

One of the best fish meals I’ve ever had in a restaurant. The restaurant is nice and cosy, and the staff is welcoming and I particularly would like to thank Patricia Marcelo for the pleasant service, availability and professionalism. Recommending it and going back for surfe.

Very nice food, very well represented. Big selection of wines. The staff is young and friendly. We ordered salad and mussles as starters and risotto and octopus as main dish.

We didn't have a reservation, but we had checked on TripAdvisor and wanted to come here. The staff were so welcoming and helpful - from recommended wines to dishes based on our preferences. The menu is varied and interesting. We had the prawns and mussels to begin, octopus, duck for main and a small selection of desserts to finish. Everything... More

We discovered the Frade dos Mares one lunch and couldn't figure out how to get in--we could see people eating, but no doorknob to open the door. On a second try, we were greeted by one of the staff and then noticed the doorbell. We were greeted with warmth and given a central table where we could watch all the... More

We visited this restaurant in 2014 and again in 2015 when traveling to Lisboa. This restaurant serves upscale quality of food and wine. We ate an Octopus cataplana which is a typical portugese dish, full of flavour. Waitress was very helpful, friendly. Last advice : reserve on time or you will be disappointed.

Food is good. Service could be better....the service staff should advise on the portions. We had ordered too much & struggled to finish the dishes. The restaurant is very small & got very crowded towards lunchtime. Service was affected when the restaurant filled up.

Delicious octopus, large portions and very reasonably priced. I went for lunch here and it wasn't busy at all but must be very popular for an evening meal.

As the title says, very good food, but: In my mind the restaurant is WAYS to small for the ammount of the tables they put in. I resevered a table for 3, we got a (small) table for couples. At the beginning everything was very nice, which would have led me to rate the restaurant with 5 stars.. here's why... More
