“Best seafood we've ever had. Period.”
For anybody that has seen the episode of "Anthony Bourdain - No Reservations", it is basically exactly the same as it is portrayed on TV.
The restaurant is simple but very honest, however it is all about the food here. The flavours are simple and clean with very little added to the seafood other than some seasoning, garlic, olive oil - that's it! You just don't need to do anything to ingredients of this quality.
We had barnacles, the garlic clams, chilli prawns in oil, the "edible crab" and four large scarlet shrimp which is easily the best shrimp I have ever had...
The service was absolutely first class also. Our waiter seemed to know exactly what it is we wanted before we had a moment to ask. From fresh plates, new table cloths and wet wipes (it gets a bit messy, to as much lightly toasted bread to soak up all the flavours that we wanted.
The bill came to a very VERY reasonable 90EUR which included 6 half pints of beer and 3 glasses of port. If you are going to Lisbon then you absolutely have to go here, I couldn't recommend it enough.
