Description: The Laurentina Restaurant, the King of the Cod, is distinguished for the quality of its plates and services since 1976, as much in true plates of Mozambican origin, as in the Portuguese traditional kitchen. In a friendly environment, it provides the pleasure of a true meal of Cod, confectioned of diverse forms, being certainly one of the best ones of Portugal.

“Perfectly balanced flavour ......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

This restaurant is a most pleasant surprise for me and my family. Location is very unusual because the restaurant is located in the basement of an apartment building, but it is very charming decorated, nothing special - but charming. We are great gourmets and we love to eat well and try new dishes for us ... and with the help of a very charming and helpful waitress Maria we opted for two different dishes, grilled cod with potatoes cooked in the shell and goats in vegetable sauce ... definitely both excellent meals! We tried other places and cod fish in all ways but this cod in Laurentina restaurant was perfectly balanced flavor, nicely roasted, beautifully served and very tasty. With great wine, excellent service of Maria and other waiters, with a lovely atmosphere, I'm sorry that I could not try some more dishes ... but I will definitely come again.

“eating in Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is a restaurant in the new part of the city. It specializes on bacalhau and has a variety of dishes on the menu. The service and food are excellent. The restaurant is clean and well lit and has an exterior eating area. This was one of the finest restaurants in Lisbon.

“The best "bacalhau" ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Service is excellent (treated like a king), the food is extraordianry. I love "bacalhau" (cod fish) and this was the best ever. We returned for the night of fado (Thursday), which was a very nice musical and gastronomic experience with wine tasking.

“Great place. Fado was too latem”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We had a very nice dinner, then took three dozen of our members for a specially arranged Fado. Food service was so late that many of our guest left early. The entertainment, I'm told, was wonderful. I was the host but had to get up at 5am. I did not stay.

“Very good Cod Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The restaurant specialty is cod fish. They have several dishes made with cod fish but the best one is "Couvada de Bacalhau". This dish was served in generous portions. 2 dishes was more than enough for 3 persons and it was delicious. It is better to make a reservation and the prices are according the quality of dishes. We paid about 25 Euros /per person with wine.
