    We went for the lunch of the day and added bread, olives and butter plus a desert at the end. The fish with grilled vegetables and potatos was really tasty as were the olives and the desert. This is a very reliable restaurant that I have often recommended and visited. I sincerely hope that it will survive the Covid Nightmare inflicted upon all of us.

    Absolutely lovely little place, staff were super welcoming and their recommendations were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and made you feel at ease even when asking for something to be changed. Would highly recommend anyone looking for great food. Although marketed as a seafood place their meat dishes were also incredible. The Black Pork especially. Cathy was a fantastic host!

    First and foremost the wait staff was very welcoming and attentive. Especially want to recognize João for his wonderful service, suggestions and knowledge of the food and wines. The food was truly amazing and a great value as well. Definitely will return next time I’m in Lisboa.

    A small but very pleasant place. The food was exquisite and of a very high quality - mussels, fish and octopus - as fresh as it gets. Our waitress Cathy was also very polite and kind!

    Excellent seafood, great service. The restaurant is on the small side and there is no background music, so at times it would get noisy from all the people talking. A bit of background soft music would be an improvement, I think. But overall, great restaurant.

    We enjoyed every single dish. The grilled salmon was served on a bed of fresh fruit which we will try to copy at home it was so good. The octopus, mussel, sweet potato dish for two with was a feast for the eye as well as the palate., and the mushroom risotto was exquisite. We found the staff to be knowledgable and friendly. The large selection dessert platter blew us away. In short, it was a perfect meal in a wonderful spot.

    William who was our waiter did a fantastic job! He recommended the best wine and the dishes were great. The Prawn dish was so tasty and well cooked, the Octopus was melt in your mouth. The traditional Portuguese desert was also very delicious! We highly recommend visiting this restaurant and hopefully you have the pleasure of being served by William.

    The food was amazing! Just one thing that was really annoying was the doorbell. Everytime when someone wants to enter he has to ring the doorbell

    Disappointed. The restaurant canceled my reservation because I didn't tip. Portuguese cuisine nothing special. There are better Portuguese restaurants in the Lisbon area. I know what I'm talking about because I'm portuguese.

    Excellent, delicious dishes, prepared with presentation in mind and taste. My magret to canard was equal to that I have eaten for the past 40 years in SW France. The service was very friendly. My one disappointment was that there was no mention anywhere of not serving fish on Mondays, only shellfish and bacalau, which isn´t fresh, of course. It makes perfect sense, but since this is a well-known restaurant for non-Lisboetans, it would be a plus to mention it on the website. But bravo, I will return!

    wonderful restaurant. The food and service were both terrific. As many have said before, the octopus entrée was amazing. I am a huge octopus fan and order it whenever I have the chance, and this was probably the best octopus dish I have ever had

    This little restaurant was a great find. Brilliant seafood in a cute, cheerful setting, accompanied with friendly service. The fact that one has to ring a bell at the main door to be let in enhances the feeling of being a valued guest, in my view.

    Okay. Good food. Small place. Nice atmosphere. Nice service. But just not quite there. You need to ring a bell to get in. At first I thought it was closed. Almost left. I guess they’re trying to pretend to be exclusive. I get in. Get seated. Order a glass of wine. They’re out of that one. I try a different one. They’re out of that one. A third. Out of that one too. They have thingamajigs to call your server on the table. I needed to use it to order the first glass of wine because once I got seated no one came. But once things got going it was good. Good food. Good service. Good low prices. The sea bass on rice dish was adequate but small portion of good tasty sea bass. For the price I recommend. If they could turn it up a notch it would be five star.

    Our Host suggested this place as it was very near to where we were staying. The food was excellent it was my partner's birthday and they kindly placed a candle in his dessert . The service was also very good and we would highly recommend Frade Dos Mares and hope to return next time we are in Lisbon.

    Supern local restaurant with very welcoming group of staffs. Tried prawns, octopus salads as starter and baked whole fish and seafood cataplana. All were tasty, but the baked fish was really great! Also staffs can all speak very good English and professional. Will definately visit again.
