Went here on a Sunday night as there was not a lot of other restaurants selling seafood open.
The restaurant was full with a mixture of locals and tourists though we did notice that a lot of the locals were not having the more expensive seafood items whereas the tourists seemed to be trying them as like us they were on holiday.
Just take note about all the previous comments about the appetizers and that generally the price of the fish and lobsters etc. are sold by weight so don't be afraid to ask them for the price of things.
We did have the stuffed crab appetizer and then the huge grilled "tigres" prawns and all the food was delicious along with the caipirinhas and the wine.
This is not a romantic restaurant but a quite loud, bright bustling place like a lot of marisquieras in Spain and Portugal. On the Avenida de Liberdade it is surrounded by theatres, some high end hotels, shops etc and expensive real estate so it caters to its mostly local clientele. I have been to other fairly close cheaper marisquieras and found the quality of food to be just as good as here.

I thought of treating myself to some good seafood and this place was recommended by locals.
I ended up quite disappointed with the quality and the value of the food. Maybe because I was a tourist? I don't know.

If you are going to expend 50 to 60 euros, then do it elsewhere. Don't even bother if the budget is less than 20.

The service was nice though.

While the restaurant is located at Av. Liberdade, it is not very nice inside, and the food is just OK, especially considering its price. Particularly disappointing is the thing with the "couvert" (appetizers). They give you a lot of stuff without asking, and then charge you item by item (bread, butter, cheese, etc). It is not good (the stuffed crab was horrible), and ends up inflating the bill a lot. Although other restaurants do the same thing, it is not standard practice in Portugal. I went to several restaurants there, and only two did it.

A great Lisbon experience. We ate surrounded by locals in what is a very busy and, therefore, noisy restaurant. We were delighted to be eating in what is clearly a very well regarded venue locally. Great atmosphere, great food, great service by professionals.

As i was in liberdade street i decided to make a reservation at this place wich has some good reviews. When i arrived i discovered the place full,extremely noisy,waiters lost,tables one next to the other as if you eat all together.
Keep away from this awfull place. In front you see beautifull 'viveiro' of sea fish but don't be impressed.
