I found out about be this place because I was staying in a hotel closed to it. Is not the typical fancy restaurant, but rather a traditional one. I ordered "Robalo" fish and it was great, it comes with salad and potatoes! Also if you still have room for dessert, try their flan!

We visited this restaurant with friends because we wanted to try some typical portuguese food. We got separate room just for us. It started good- with the tasty soup and quite nice house wine. But then was worse and worse. Sardines were terrible and vegetables and potatoes even worse. Shrimps were not peeled and it was necessary to remove the... More

We ate Faz Frio twice while staying in Lisbon. It's an old fashioned place, both in the decor- think 1950s, or earlier, and in the quality of food. The fish is fresh and delicious, as is the meat. We asked our waiter to tell us what was on the 'Portuguese' list of the menu, which wasn't on the English menu,... More

For most Portuguese people, this is not a Restaurant: it's their Grandmother's kitchen! If you're Portuguese and miss your (grand)parents traditional food, or if you're curious about old fashion Portuguese dishes, you must go to Casa Faz Frio. That's where you'll find: the most wonderful and affordable (always generously served) "Bacalhau à Braz" (sliced dried cod and fries, mixed with... More

Faz Frio is a very simple restaurant. Both in terms of the food, as in terms of the interior. But we loved it very much. The food was quite heavy but full of taste. We had a great garlic soup and something with sausages. Staff was very friendly and the prices were astonishingly low. So what are you waiting for?

It's a classic place in Lisbon. Simple, popular and unsofisticated. If you're lucky, order a paella or valencia's ride. A delicacy of flavours.

We had the menu of the day here today and I have never tasted chicken quite as delicious before, it melted in the mouth and was full of flavour. Lovely friendly waiter and included bread, a glass of beer and great coffee........all for €7.50!

While looking for another place we happened upon faz trio. It was a lovely walk from ciado and there were several tables occupied. That's where things went south. My partner wanted grilled hake, but it only came fried, she tried to go with the salmon, but they were out (at 9:00), so she went with the pork chops, an ample... More
