“Excellent food and very friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner in this restaurant. Although the interior is a bit cold (modern could be another word to describe it ;), the staff was very warm and helpful. The housewine was excellent and the main course (local dish of octopus from the oven with potatoes and lots of garlic) was superb!

“As good as it gets!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Aside from the almost familiar enviroment, that captivates you on the spot, the food is superb! If you are travelling to Lisbon, a visit to the "Frade do Mares" restaurant is mandatory.
To the staff I'd say: "Congatulations and keep up the good work!"
Cheers

“fabulous food in the Santos design district”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

While shopping for furniture at Paris Sete in the Santos design district we stopped by chance at a wonderful small restaurant frade dos mares.
The waiter was extremely friendly and helpful in guiding us through the menu suggesting wine pairings for each course and splitting our choices so we each of us could try what the other had chosen.
We had grilled salmon in an orange and chive reduction cooked to perfection paired with a side of local vegetables diced and done as a ratatouilli, we then had the best octopus I have eaten in Portugal, done to mouth watering perfection in olive oil and caramelized garlic- lots of garlic! with tiny roast potatoes, the kind of dish you find on nearly every menu in Portugal but by the chefs magic it was raised to a new high.
Finally we were tempted by a belgian white chocolate and orange mousse to finish
Cost with wine 50 Euros for two
Will certainly be back.
