The most famous seafood restaurants in Lisbon

Get to know the city of Lisbon is also get to know its gastronomic traditions: to taste flavours, to try textures, to fell aromas. Truth be told, the gastronomy is a core piece of any city’s culture and it is part of its true essence. 

If you think about Lisbon, it is undeniable that there are countless delicacies, snacks and typical dishes that delight many of people (mainly tourists) and must be included in the visitor’s "must taste” list. Two of those that are certainly on the podium are the famous fish & seafood dishes, that are mandatory in any mere seafood restaurant and, as expected, are usual orders from those who attend them.

Being Lisbon a beautiful city bathed by the Atlantic Ocean (literally planted by the sea, we can say), it is almost a rule to present fish as one of its strongest gastronomic culture and one of its best "business cards” — a reality that happens all over the country, although with more predominance in the centre and south of Portugal.

Because of that, and unsurprisingly, we can affirm that the seafood restaurants are the most sought-after restaurants in the city, both by tourist and locals; places where you can eat, with no regrets, a delicious fish dish — with several options available, including octopus, squid, cuttlefish, bream, salmon or cod —, or an excellent seafood dish — where shrimps, crab, clams, lobster or oysters, among others, are always on a good serving dish —, both fresh and directly from the market. One thing you can be sure: there will be no regrets as you will eat and cry for more!
