This is the place to eat cod fish (bacalhau) in Lisbon! The "pataniscas" with tomato rice are very very good and tasty. Is necessary to reserve because is always crowded. The staff is very friendly.

We ate here on our first evening in Lisbon, at the recommendation of the hotel. We hadn't booked, so were lucky to get a table; but we'd arrived early by Lisbon standards, and by the time we left it was packed. Almost all the dishes...More

The Laurentina Restaurant, the King of the Cod, is distinguished for the quality of its plates and services since 1976, as much in true plates of Mozambican origin, as in the Portuguese traditional kitchen. In a friendly environment, it provides the pleasure of a true meal of Cod, confectioned of diverse forms, being certainly one of the best ones of Portugal.
