This is a very weird place but in an extremely positive way. It is a store with tinned fish which are very popular in Portugal and quite iconic to that country. This place looks like a museum but surprisingly - the prices are very cheap!...More

Fantastic shop with a very large fantastic selection of tinned fish. Worth a look even if you don't eat fish.

Having grown up in the UK, where tinned fish was the nasty stuff you ate when you didn't have time to buy fresh fish, this place was a revelation. Took a bunch of cans home -- delicious, and a great range of options.
