This is simply superb. There is an indoor and outdoor area, so if you have a preference let them know when you book. The 4 of us sat inside and there was a great buzz. Every dish was excellent, we had Gaspacho, prawns, octopus croquettes...and Tuna ceviche. We were all blown away, my pal thought the Gaspacho was the best he ever had. Main courses were fabulous. The Octopus was the best, entrecôte and sea bream were all perfect as well. We were all full but had to do dessert and the lemon meringue, caramel mousse and the custard pastry were all incredible This is one place not to missMore

I’ve been to Frade a few times and it never disappoints. I thought it would be strange to go back now during the pandemic, but the staff and health and safety measures made me feel comfortable and safe. Staff were friendly as always, specially Vanessa...who was super attentive and made us feel comfortable. The staff were all wearing masks and there were only a small number of tables in order to keep social distancing. The new menu is delicious. I loved the octopus croquetas, the tuna and the dessert caramel mousse with coffee was heaven. I’d been looking forward to eating our again since the lockdown started and I’m really happy that Frades has reopened! Going back soon!!More

We came upon this place on a side street people dining outside quite unassuming from the first impression. Quite busy for a Tuesday nite. Staff inside were very Friendly,professional and helpful. Service was outstanding with all dishes presented perfectly and timed correctly. I can’t say...enough about the brilliantly prepared food. The octopus and Porko preto were fabulous. If you are in the area or not far I highly recommend this hem of a restaurant.More

We had an excellent meal here recently. The octopus and grilled sea bream were perfectly prepared. The accompanying medley of vegetables and salad were ample and tasty. The restaurant is quite stringent about documentation of COVID vaccination status, so if non-EU resident, be prepared to...bring your vaccination record.More

There is no dress code per se, but I would still recommend going in a presentable fashion.

The menu is okay. It is a fish specialized restaurant We did not see any kids though. Didn't look like a "child-friendly" place. You should call the restaurant and ask. Enjoy Lisboa anyway!
