Lisbon, Portugal, is one of our top city destinations in all of Europe. From beautiful views of the ocean to winding city streets enveloped by pastel-colored buildings, this capital city has so much charm. The Portuguese capital is also a great destination for foodies, and seafood is one of its biggest draws. Check out these three seafood restaurants that you can’t miss in Lisbon.
Made famous on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, Cervejaria Ramiro is the most well-known seafood restaurant in all of Lisbon. Located in a quiet, non-touristic area, this restaurant has an amazing variety of the best Atlantic seafood sourced from the Portuguese coast, including giant prawns and crabs.
A hot spot in the buzzing Bairro Alto neighborhood, Trinidade is a feast for the senses. As you walk in, you’ll see massive mosaics painted on the walls of a former monastery and smell a delicious combination of butter, garlic, and seawater. People here swear by the restaurant’s cod dishes and shellfish.
Frade dos Mares
Looking for a more modern take on Portuguese seafood? Frade dos Mares is the spot for you. This restaurant puts its own spin on Portuguese staples like octopus, which is the superstar of its menu. Frade dos Mares’ Polvo a Lagareiro is a dish you can’t leave without trying.
