This is a great place for sampling seafood! Rakes are good, and here you get four different kinds in addition to seafood you did not even know existed! Very busy place full of locals and great atmosphere!

We truly enjoyed the food, our server was excellent end spoke fluent English. The ambiance is fairly modest, but may be that is the idea - to create a feeling of a local cervejeria.

Ribardouro is a restaurant right on one of the main downtown streets in Lisbon, Ave. de Liberdade. It is a characteristic restaurant with white tablecloths and a refrigerated display case showing all the fish they serve. They also have a live lobster tank. There are 3 sizes of shrimp shown, oysters, several types of crabs and crab legs. At a recent lunch we ordered garlic clams, served in a copper pan and they were delicious. We sopped up the garlic-laden oil with fresh bread and washed it down with a local dry white wine. Next, we ordered the tiger prawns. I’ve never seen shrimp this big. They, too, came in a wine infused garlic sauce. While the shrimp are indeed huge, half of each is taken up by the head so while there is ample meat to enjoy from the back, you can only get so much out of the head part. The shrimp were delicious and the wine went so well with them also. We finished with a mixed salad and espresso. The entire bill including tip was $160.

An atmospheric restaurant consistently busy with locals and a few tourists. There was often a short wait in line to get in.
Mostly fish but limited other choices too.
Friendly attentive busy staff.
Sit in the busy front area near the bar and entrance rather than the 'overflow' back (basement) area.
Starters, mains, a bottle of wine and soft drinks for 2 came to e84.75 not inc service.

My wife and I had a most enjoyable meal at Ribadouro.
As soon as we entered you could feel the authentic atmosphere with mostly locals dining and enjoying drinks and tapas at the bar.
If you want to eat seafood in Lisbon make a beeline for this place,
Huge selection is on offer and beautifully presented at your table,
Meat eaters need not fear there is plenty of choice for them.
The Portuguese wine list is most interesting but do try the delicious Lisboa whites with your shellfish!
The crab amuse bouche was outstanding.

The staff are always pleasant and friendly even though the restaurant was very busy and NO long wait for your food.

5 stars for Ribadouro from me.
