“Great experience in Lisbon”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

We were told this was Lisbon’s best seafood and we weren’t disappointed. For many the no-reservation policy is a negative, for us…well, we kind of love that. Queuing up in line, cold beer in hand, only added to the anticipation. This place is all about seafood, the room is casual and bustling and the servers are good-humored and institutions themselves. Don’t expect sides or veggies, you are here to indulge in the best gambas (shrimp) soaked in garlic sauce, steamed clams, and canhila (a conch like creature.) The menu lists all prices in kg, but don't stress if you don't know how much to order. These guys are pros, just tell them what you want and they'll sort out the perfect portion for your table.

“Only if you love seafood...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2014

This appears to be somewhat of an institution in Lisbon. All they serve is seafood, a steak sandwich and bread - no salads or vegetables at all. It has massive lines so come early if you don’t want to wait. Décor is simple, tables are set out quite close together and there is great buzzy atmosphere! Tiger prawns are massive and delicious and the steak sandwich was great. The other seafood was a little over cooked. Worth a visit if you have time and love seafood.

“Good Shellfish but overrated place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

The restaurant is located in a sleazy part of town (like meeting Louie in the song). We were told we couldn't make dinner reservations and had to wait for 30/40 minutes for a table. I wasn't expecting anything else but perfection, but that wasn't the case. The shellfish is very good and the price is fair but the staff is not very friendly and the place is very loud and crowded. I would probably not come back.

“Fast paced but excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014

The seafood was excellent the beer was great. Tough to understand the fast moving waiter since our portuguese was not great but the food was excellent great ambiance. The line was out the door but thanks to the concierge at the Four Seasons we got in.

“Wonderful seafood and fun atmosphere ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2014 via mobile

Despite the huge queue, approx 45 mins, which went a little quicker after getting beers from the bar, this was a fantastic experience. Casual, rustic charm, real honest food of the highest quality. Plenty of locals despite many tourists. Highly recommended
