4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2015

This very centrally located place is not really a pub for beer, as the name suggests (cervejaria), but more of a restaurant specializing in fish and seafood, which is already displayed at the entrance. Often quite full, I was almost alone one evening and profited from an efficient service by a friendly, informative waiter. I had an excellent octopus salad... More

Visiting during the World Cup (the day after Portugal drew with USA) probably accounted for the irregular service - the staff were a little jaded - having said that when the food finally arrived it was very good - cod cooked with onion, red pepper and fried potatoes - good wholesome food served with a good house red.

One of the waiters knew English and ordering was fun, the other just Portuguese and ordering was not fun at all. They do not have all the time the dishes on the menu. The cooking quality is average.

We ate there the first night in Lisbon based on review from Rough Guide but was a completely disappointment! Fish was not fresh and tasting disgusting that I couldn't finish it as I was worried to get sick food poisoning. My boyfriend ordered beans with seafood a typical Portuguese dish and no sign of fish inside just left overs. Bill... More

This is a really central bistro-style restaurant - nothing fancy here but what they do well is serve delicious traditional Portugese food. Service is plain and simple, but very friendly, quick and good. The wide range of seafood is beautifully cooked and tasty. Try the pork and clams - it's one of the best local dishes. Informal, inexpensive but really... More

Staying in Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores

Neighbourhood Profile
Baixa, Rossio & Restauradores
A pending candidate to become a World Heritage Site, Lisbon's downtown (the "Baixa Pombalina", or simply "Baixa") is a perfect example of anti-earthquake construction, having been rebuilt following the 1755 earthquake by the famous Marquês de Pombal (hence its name). Its offer is vast: restaurants and cafes in Rossio and Restauradores, outlets and shops in the Áurea, Augusta, Prata and other famous streets, the imponent Praça do Comércio and its Arch, the luxury shops along the Avenida da Liberdade, this is the beating heart of the city center. The Baixa also grants easy access to trains leading to Sintra, the trams that go around the Castle hill, old neighborhoods or even take you to Belém, and Lisbon's traditional restaurants and cafes. Considering a visit to the Fashion and Design Museum (free entrance) and don't forget to try the famous liquor, "ginjinha"!
