Sat outside for lunch on a really warm Republic Day, with lots of locals around. The bread, pate and cheese were good to start, and then we ordered the sardines we had promised ourselves. They were exceptional, and go well with beer. The seafood soup...More

Located across the river from the city of Lisbon right in front of the ferry dock. Food was delicious with numerous dishes starting with huge prawns. Lots to eat and lots to drink. Staff friendly, helpful and could accommodate those with seafood, gluten allergy.

Great vibe. Visited here as part of a group and they obviously deal with groups our size often. Food was great - plenty of it and plenty of wine and beer that was included in the price. Funny to have NZ Green Lipped mussels!

I was skeptical about how good this restaurant would be since it was located adjacent to the port & bus terminal, but I'm glad I checked the reviews and tried it! The grilled salmon tasted fresh and was cooked perfectly. Easily the best tasting meal...More
