This is a typical cafe/restaurant which you can enter all the day. You will find all typical Portuguese food from reasonable fish and seafood until pork & beef. There is also a well asorted choice of wines. Service acts quick and the qualtiy of food is satisfying. Although the restaurant is located right on Avenida de Liberdade there are always more locals than tourists in - which tells an experienced traveller that quality must be good.
Inside is a long bar and the typical small tables with paper tablecloth and TV screens everywhere. If you like football you will never miss an important match.

Situated on the Avenida da Liberdade, at this restaurant we were welcomed by a friendly maître'd and were able to find reasonably priced entrees for ourselves and an impromptu vegetarian dish for my daughter. There were no options on the menu here or in many other places we searched - Lisbon has a scarcity of vegetarian options on its restaurant menus (except pizza) and the service we received in most places was indifferent bordering on rude. Not here! The food was ample, atmosphere charming, and service friendly. Seafood (lobster, shrimp, crab) has been out of our price range at 80-115 euro per person, but the veal and pork entries were good at 10-12 euro. Mostly, we appreciated the welcoming service at Quebra Mar.

My wife and I just returned from a trip to Portugal and while visiting the city of Lisbon we stumbled onto this fine restaurant. We ate there twice. The first time, my wife just ordered the mixed salad as she was not very hungry, and I ordered the salmon. The salad was enough for both of us to share and the salmon was out of this world. It came with steamed broccoli, and three potatoes. The salmon was 11 euros and the salad was 3.50 euros. We had a very good waiter, Antonio, who spoke very good English and was quite helpful. We were so pleased with our experience there, that we returned to eat there two nights later. On that evening we accepted the bread that was brought to the table, and politely refused the cheese and meat, to which they were perfectly fine with that. Antonio did not push anything on us, but helped us make our selection. We chose the mixed salad again to share, the Garlic Prawns as a starter, and we shared a Tiger Prawn (broiled). I had a blond beer, and we shared a bottle of still water. Antonio brought to our table as a 'gift' two barnacles to sample. First time for that, and I would have to say there was not much taste to them, just reminded me of the sea. We each had a piece of desert and our total bill was 45 euros. The tiger prawn was excellent as was the garlic prawns. The tiger prawn tasted a lot like lobster especially when dipped in the melted butter sauce.
After we left the restaurant we ran into some friends on the street and they were looking for a good place to eat so we took them back to this restaurant and introduced them to Antonio and they later told us that the meal they had was the best they had eaten in Portugal. They had the swordfish, and said it was excellent.
I really feel that you can't go wrong with this genuine Portuguese restaurant.

My first impression when I walked into this place was a classic old school restaurant. All the wait staff were men in their 50s. All dressed simple yet professionally. The service was great with knowledge of the food and class. The place is not fancy and very informal. The food was excellent. It's just up the street from the touristy areas so a good option.

On a recent trip to Lisbon found this restaurant what a gem.
The food is excellent and the service first class.
Comparing what you pay in the UK for at a fish restuarant a meal here is around half price.

Do not walk pass this restaurant go in and try you will not be disappointed.
