Curiosity got the best of me and we stopped for one. Very limited menu, however, the main plus is a large outdoor seating area to kick up your tired feet and watch Lisbon go by. Enjoyable, but I don't need to have another one.
The place is nice to look at with in the centre of the town near Baixa chaida metro station. But the cod cake was not very nice and the cheese was a bit overpowering the actual fish flavour. Personally did not like that but a...More
these cod fish balls filled with cheese are an explosion of flavor. a must in this area of town. overpriced...yes, with spending the euros if you want a fast bite and a sip of vinho de madeira (tastes like the Martin Liquor). cash only!DELICIOSO.
Cute spot to see how cod fish cakes are made (there is a viewing window inside where you can watch them prepare how they are done). Some people feel it’s a bit “touristy,” but it’s a worth going and sitting outside at one of their...More
Did not try other items like wine. Most people go for the basic pastel, with or without cheese.
If you are in a crowded day, just remember to pay/order first. It is a fast moving place, with people knowing intuitively where to go next
Strange but somewhat interesting proposal for an old traditional Portuguese delicacy.
Decided to go for the one with Madeira Wine (rainwater semi dry). It’s not bad but a bit too expensive for the experience.
Got here ONLY if you really want to have something different....More
A different combination of cod and cheese. Cheese from Serra da Estrela is very good and famous. The cod is a common "industrial" fish which might be a little bit tasteless for a mediterranean person. The presentation is superb.. Taste is average.. It is good...More
The location is very beautiful and attractive, but not so cleaned, especially the restroom.
They just serve the pastel of bacalhau, 4€ each one. And one is enough for a quick lunch, because it’s fried and filled with cheese so it satisfies you. In fact...More
Reading the other reviews it seems you have to be lucky to find the bacalau meatballs just done....
We have been and they were veeeery good!
Be aware about the price of the drinks that imho it’s overcharged.
All in all still absolutely to try....
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"!
