Stayed five days in November 2015 in Lisbon, went three times to Gavea Do Mar restaurant. Ordered different type of fish each time and was not disappointed. They have a very good fish. Fish meal with beer and Desert at affordable prices 13-23 US dollars.

Had dinner with my husband. It was not packed and we were well taken care of by a cheerful staff. I had yummy seafood stew with rice and my husband, who doesn't eat a lot of fish, had the beef, which was well prepared. The price was right!

We decided to stop here after reviews on trip advisor. At first my wife didn't want to go in, first impressions aren't great. Well we are glad that we did! The food was excellent! Seafood rice and veal steak, both excellent! Good value too. We would go back again and recommend to anyone!

Very friendly and helpful service. The food is really good and original from lisbon. If you dont like fat pork food or cabbage, order something else. Or drink a bagasso. We liked the atmosphere, too.
