“One of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

For the seafood person, this is where you go. If you can't handle queuing, go elsewhere or come earlier (around 6pm). I sat immediately at 6pm and another night waited 30-40mins at 8pm.
Try the sea barnacles and the hairy crab. The giant tiger prawns and nice and novelty for size, and the lobster tank is tempting. There's a few other shells to try, various types of prawns and a cold served rock crab (although the other is much more memorable).
It's a messy place to eat, they intentionally leave space in between groups seated to allow for flying bits of food, but the taste is worth it.
Just do it.

“Fresh seafood, but services are ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Always a long queue, people love this place. We came early, but services are "I'd rather not talk about it". I have to say the seafood are fresh, but not amazing. If you love lobster, they do have a tank full of living lobster.

“Worst experience in a restaurant in Lisbon”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014

I can't understand why so many positive reviews. I might have ended up in a "wrong night" but I can share what most of the "terrible" and "poor" reviews say.
1. This place is so popular that you'll have to queue up. In our case more than one hour, which was made even more frustrating by the fact that half of the tables inside were available. The staff couldn't just handle the situation and didn't let people sit.
2. I don't mind rude staff as long as they're efficient but I saw those guys running 3 times up and down the whole room to bring a menu and two glasses. Come on pull it together!
3. The menu is just a list of fish, of which I only knew 1/3 maybe. No clue of how the food you're ordering is prepared and you have to order per kilo. Which might be even fun if you were supported by the staff. Your waiter will be impatiently staring at you, sweating, forcing you in to ordering random stuff.

The food was good overall but nothing special, and totally overpriced for Lisbon.
