Fatima is a a delightfully friendly host whether in advance by email or in person at her restaurant. As we had booked for a Sunday when they are only open for lunch she suggested we visit in the morning to make our choice of food so that we would not be disappointed if our choice was not available. Fatima suggested... More

We ate at A Pescaria twice on a recent trip to Lisbon and the reviewer who referred to it as a "hidden gem" is right on target. Hidden on the waterfront right behind the train station and a short walk from the considerably more chaotic Time Out Market, A Pescaria is a small quiet spot that has incredibly fresh seafood...

Came upon this restaurant by chance. We were the only tourists there and were delighted with our delicious lunch. The freshest fish cooked to order for us and friendly service.

We travelled through Spain to Portugal and this has been the best seafood so far. Very fresh and the flavor is just right - not salty and very delicious. Its location is not that obvious but I think definitely worth going

When in Lisbon go have fresh homemade seafood at A Pescaria. Ask about Fatima, the owner of this cozy restaurant, she'll assist you and prepare for you the best Portuguese dishes as per your preferences 🐟🦀🍽😋 Don't forget to ask about their homemade Portuguese desserts! Delicious!

Visited this restaurant with my family and we enjoyed it very much. We ordered some mixture of appetizers (olives, fried small fish, cheeses, etc.) and as a main dish we had a grilled fish. It was fantastic, perfectly done and very tasty. They also had a nice selection of local wines, which we nicely paired with the food. Would definitely... More

We discovered this little restaurant on our most recent trip to Portugal and were very impressed by both by the friendly service and super tasty fresh fish. Even our 3-year old daughter, who's typically very picky where it comes to food, delighted in her lunch without a fuss! Highly recommend this little hidden gem. Enjoy!

My second visit to this restuarant and this time it was excellent. (The first time I felt adventurous and ordered cuttlefish (it came in black ink) however my palate did not appreciate the risk. At that time my husband had the fish roe and it was fabulous!). We ordered the Cataplana for two - it was delicious - filled with... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for 10+ years and have always had a fantastic meal with great service. To prove this point, when we were there in March we got talking to a couple from the north of Portugal and they told us that every time they visit Lisbon they have a meal at A Pescaria. The fish is... More
