Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Found this wee restaurant through trip advisor only in Lisbon for 2 nights and fancied something authentic and fancied fish. We stayed just off Rossio square so just used google maps to get directions only a 12 min bus journey away and short 4-5 min walk the transport network is fab so no worries about getting there . So so worth getting there . We shared a plate of meat ,cheese and hot rolls it was all delicious . I opted for sea bass and my husband sea bream both were absolutely delicious both served with boiled potatoes ,broccoli and carrots. We both then had a dessert mine a baked apple and hubby’s a traditional Portuguese tart made from almonds and egg type filling both lovely. The lovely owner then gave us a small shot of port . We had a bottle of vinho verde and bottle of still water the whole bill came in at wait for it a staggering €48 an absolute bargain for outstanding food. Not a great selection of starters mainly the cheese and meat or breads but was mainly there for the fish anyway . Definitely off the beaten track but well worth using your google maps and finding it 👍👍😊😊

We came for dinner quite late on a Tuesday night and were warmly welcomed by Fernando, who runs the restaurant with his wife. The restaurant is very small (there are only about four tables in there at the moment with social distancing), and it feels like you've gone for a nice family dinner. Fernando explained what was on the menu (all the seafood is dependent on what was available that day) and we went for grilled sardines and squid, and vegetable soup to start. The food was all incredibly fresh, beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious. We stayed on to try some of the desserts (definitely worthwhile) and even though we were the last people there and clearly keeping them from closing up, we never felt rushed or pressured to leave quickly. For three courses and drinks, we paid about £30 - a bargain! If we were spending any more time in Lisbon we'd be coming back for more - as it is, we'd recommend it to anyone coming to Lisbon who's looking for traditional Portuguese food and a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Crisfama is one of the most amazing places in Lisbon❤ Small family restaurant with the small menu, but the food is delicious and the owner is so hospitable, funny, kind and he is the soul if the place. We tried octopus rice and grill fish, it is served with boiled potato and vegetables and the amazing sous. Don't skip desserts, they are unbelievable, especially chocolate cake. It's better to reserve the table, cause there are only six tables and the restaurant is full of people every night.

Big disappointment. Had planned to have dinner at an authentic Portugese restaurant. Unfortunately, the steak I ordered was a raw and fat piece of meat. Re-frying it made me losing my appetite. No apologies. Just requesting you to pay the bill! Mustard was over date. This place is using a microwave for warming up vegetables and potatoes. These products are not fresh. A pity. I would recommend to look for an alternative.

From the moment we walked in the door the owner made us very welcome and ensured we selected dishes to our liking. The food was simple yet delicious cooked lovingly by the wife. The desserts were exceptional. If we had more time in Lisbon we would have definitely dined here again. Excellent!!

We had an amazing meal here on our first day in Lisbon, run by husband and wife. Very friendly, enormous portions of fish (we had seabass and tuna) at amazing value, cooked really well. Generously portioned glasses of wine, €1.55 for a bottle of Sagres. The perfect start to our time in Portugal.

Amazing cozy restaurant with fantastic food and service! I had octopus rice which was more than I expected. I really enjoyed the meal even though I was a solo traveler since the owner kept me laugh and he even let me try a little glass of green wine for free. I’ll definitely come back!

It was our first dinner in Lisboa and it was fantastic! The owner was one of the friendliest persons ever and the fresh fish was perfectly cooked. Due to Corona everything was a little bit different, but there was never a moment we felt unsafe. Everything was highly clean and hygienic. Estava muito bom, obrigado! (Or whatever „it was very good, thanks“ means in portuguese)

I'm Italian and I must say that I'm kinda picky regarding food. I got to know Fernando and his restaurant a year ago and since that first lunch I come here once per month (not during quarantine ofc). The delicacy and of the dishes and Fernando's hospitality make Crisfama one of my favourite restaurants in Lisbon. Not just for fish but also meat. You don't have to expect a fancy place for a romantic dinner, but if you really want to feel and try the Portuguese experience in a characteristic Tasca with great food, this is the place that you have to come to. I completely fell in love with their Tuna steak and after trying many of them in other places (Italy included), I've to say that is the best I've tried! Obrigada!

If you haven’t been to Crisfama, make your way down there as soon as possible. Not only is the service top notch, the food is fresh and at very reasonable prices. It is a small 6 table restaurant so don’t expect large amounts of space. The owners are husband and wife. The husband works front of house whilst the wife cooks every dish, including all the lovely homemade desserts on display. We were greeted by the owner who proceeded to guess (correctly) where we were from at first glance! And then treated us like we were his long lost children. The menu was slightly confusing at first but we knew what we wanted from reading previous reviews. We had between us, the vegetable soup, a charcoal grilled fish, grilled cuttlefish and a homemade blueberry tart. Everything was cooked to perfection and the dessert was heavenly. We had good conversation with the owner and left happy and with our bellies well filled. Highly recommend this restaurant!

We had a wonderful experience at Crisfama today. The food was of exceptional quality, reasonably priced and absolutely delicious. The restaurant owner was the most welcoming and accommodating host, nothing was too much trouble and really made us feel at home. I would highly recommend Crisfama to anyone looking for a truthful Portuguese experience - it does not get more authentic than this!

Walking into Crisfama is like walking into a relative's dining room. The food is as good as anything your favourite aunt would prepare. The welcome is warm, full of good humour and laid-back. It is a small restaurant with a huge heart. We loved everything about it, including the well aged Port. Explore Lisbon and find this place is our advice. They keep tributes on site from around the world for good reason

Reservations are a must at this twenty seat small restaurant with husband Fernando out front and wife Teresa in the kitchen. Teresa is a chef extraordinaire specializing in fish done just perfectly. This is somewhere you'll want to return again and again. I can't explain how wonderful it was.

We visited Crisfama which is a little bit off the beaten track but well worth the visit. The host was very friendly and funny! The food was amazing, we shared clams and bread followed by grilled sole and tuna steak which were perfectly cooked and very generous portions. The bill was really reasonable too. I would recommend booking in advance as 3 separate couples arrived shortly after we had and were offered a future booking. It is small but intimate with max 10 settings - it is like sitting in the front of the owners home. Definitely worth the visit!

Together with my friend we have visited Crisfama couple of weeks ago. Located in Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest areas, this place is a real gem. The place is run by husband and wife - Fernando is looking after guests and Teresa is cooking. The place is very small and it’s best you book before you go. But let me tell you, the food is absolutely delicious. Prepared from scratch, fresh, flavoursome - even the bread rolls are being baked as you order! We have enjoyed beautifully cooked fish and then home made chocolate orange cake for dessert. Fernando was such a great host, he made us feel very welcomed, in fact he spoke to all of his guests. If we ever are in Lisbon again we will definitely be back. This is the place to go if you want to taste genuine Portuguese cuisine.
