We traveled to Lisbon as part of our Portugal/Spain anniversary trip. I spent many hours on TripAdvisor trying to find the perfect restaurants to spend our 4 nights in Lisbon. This amazing restaurant was the very best! We had just gotten into the city after 18+ hours of travel time and after feeling tired and discouraged from a long day... More

The place was really great, but make sure you have a reservation before going or attempting on going there. The food was reasonably priced and affordable although it was of good quality. The portions were good, only meals and no starters will get your stomach full. The meat was a little raw, but i also didnt specify how I wanted... More

Frade dos Mares is a small and cosy restaurant. The owner, Joaquim, makes the difference in the turmoil that Lisbon dinning has turn on. As soon as you get a table, service is impeccable; then comes the wine, then the food, then...then you eat, drink, chat, laugh... then you leave, feeling like you had dinner with "stranger old friends".

Felt welcomed from the off. Intimate setting in a very small space. Will need to book a table. Food was excellent, fair portion sizes and the price reflects this.

Firstly, you need a reservation. It is very unlikely to find a seat during dinner time without a reservation. I have seen more than ten walk-in groups refused at the door. Food and the service is great. Plates are bigger than average. Wine prices are slightly more expensive compared to other restaurants in Lisbon. I tried octopus salad and salmon... More

Came here on a Friday night and as mentioned on the other reviews, the place was fully booked so was happy I had a reservation. The place is smartly decorated and the ambience is nice. The waiter was very good at providing menu choices. As we were three people, the waiter asked if we wished to share the dishes, we... More

This is a rather posh, cozy restaurant. It was full on a Tuesday night. Service from Bruno the waiter was exemplary. He patiently went through all the menu options. Unfortunately I found the food we ordered pretty ordinary, given the high ratings on TA. We had the fish soup (very good), octopus, eggs & sausage, the salt baked whole bream... More

We choose to go Frades Dos Mares after reading really positive reviews and it did not disappoint! We were slightly late due to the traffic but the staff were fine with this and very attentive throughout the night. It is a fairly small restaurant with only a few tables so you should book if you want to go here. I... More
