“Fabulous fried fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We saw the trip advisor outside and decided to stop. Cod is one of the Portuguese specialties so we ordered that and by the waiters recommendation had it fried. It was absolutely delicious. We ate it with cheese and bread and for two girls that was more than enough food. For drinks bread cheese and the meal it came to about €14. This is especially cheap because many places sell cod for much greater prices.

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

We've entered this restaurant by chance while exploring Alfama, attracted by the seafood that you can see in the fridge in the window.
We've been lucky and we got excellent Portuguese food at good prices.
Therefore we've had three dinners in this place and everything was delicious!

“Great location with delicious seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Located in the heart of Lisbon, next to the Cathedral, Rio Coura might be an idea for a lunch break or dinner.It tantalizes you from the start with a display of fresh fish (long espada) in the restaurant window. The service is quick and very efficient-the staff is constantly on the move. The starters are very tasty and seafood risotto absolutely devine, of which the portion is big and might be shared between two people. Ingredients are fresh and tasty. Prices reasonable.

“Good food and good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

The food was very good. We ordered plate of mixed fish and octopus. We liked everything and it wasn't expensive.
