Excellent Sushi restaurant, very fresh! Kids are welcome and I saw them devour Sushi in cones with delight in their eyes.
Personal is very helpful and friendly. Atmosphere tranquil and charming.

One can argue that many Japanese restaurants in Europe or elsewhere outside Japan, in particular chain restaurants, have a rather tacky character, with profuse use of would-be elements of restaurants in Japan that all end up looking rather generic and un-authentic. Yet, with Japanese food being so much about aesthetics, great-looking and -tasting food is enhanced by appropriate surroundings. In this sense the Confraria Lx is a weird place. We had the address and knew where to look, yet there was no sign of it. Hence we ended up asking in a hotel next door, and were directed to a lounge-type place next door, where essentially nothing (except perhaps for a glass vitrine of the type typically holding fresh fish that was visible somewhere in the very back of the place). Beyond that it was stylish, but about as un-Japanese looking as is possible, which I don’t find very inviting. We went on a Saturday (for lunch) during the Christmas period, and the place as empty – also not a good sign. While choosing our food we were served carrot sticks on ice with a dip (very Japanese…).
The menu looked ok, with the standard Japanese items, though without pictures, which makes ordering for anyone less familiar with Japanese food terms a challenge. We had a typical range of sushi, rolls, some unagi, which was all good, though also nothing spectacular. Pricewise a bit on the high side (a single piece of unagi for about 3.50 Euro)
If you are in the area and only care for the food, this is not a bad choice. But if you are a more complete experience of having good Japanese food in a place that has a fitting character, the Confraria Lx is not a good choice.

Pros: above average decor, intimate, trendy. Close to cool bars in cais do sodré. Some fusion recipes worth to try. Service is great.

Cons: the fish just wasn't that great for the price paid if compared to other countries, pretty great for portuguese standard.

Charming restaurant near "cais do sodre" with the best sushi I ever had in Lisbon.
It's not cheap but its worth every cent.
Don't forget to try the LX roll.
