We had sardines as appetizers, cod fish as the main dish and green wine, all typical Portuguese dishes. The food was amazing, the wine great and the service very good! I definitely recommend! Need to return to try different dishes.

Since it opened its doors in 1991 on the lush Coral Way in Coral Gables, Old Lisbon is considered the best Portuguese restaurant of Miami, its expansion has resulted in two other branch locations at Sunset South Miami, and Sunny Isles Beach.

Old Lisbon has been voted in the local top 10 best seafood restaurants of South Florida, and the truth is that the variety of dishes it offers based on the hallmark codfish are just small nibbles of the traditional Portuguese cuisine rich in aromas and generously served. Worth mentioning are octopus and sardines which are plated with a unique style too.

Old Lisbon boasts a wide assortment of green and red “vinhos” (wines). It is a place with affordable prices, amicable service and pleasant ambience to share among friends and relatives.

We have been to Old Lisbonb twice, once for lunch, the second for dinner. And you bet, we will soon be back. We were very pleased with the service, the food is great, the quality of seafood remarkable. The place is decorated to stand for the name, in an old portuguese style, which we found very nice. We ordered the grilled octopus and the "camarao alho" (shrimp) and both were wonderful, the octopus very tender and perfectly cooked.
As main dish, a very recommendable option is the codfish (bacalhau), prepared in different styles, so you can find the one that best fits your taste.
If you prefer seasoned dishes, the "caldeirada de peixes y mariscos" will not disappoint you.
A very good selection of portuguese wines and portos are available, reasonably priced.
All in all, in our opinion, one of the best seafood restaurants we found in Miami so far.

Last time I was here was before it caught fire couple of years ago, during that time I went a couple of times to the one in Sunset Ave, South Miami, different location with the same quality of food and service.
Yesterday we were discussing where to go and I proposed Old Lisbon, at 1:30 we were there, ready for lunch.
While we waited for another partner in crime, we ordered Sardinhas, of course they were delicious!
The house wine, a white one that's the portuguese equivalent to the spaniard ribera del Duero was the one the waiter recommended and he wasn't wrong at all.
Octopus and Cod were our choices and they were just superb, I'm an octopus fan and this one, I should say, is the best in Miami, even better than Mandolino's, in Wynwood.
More wine and then the dessert, red wild fruits and creme, unable to explain how good it was, just go and order it.
It was not a lunch but a happening, a culinary experience to repeat and soon!
Congratulation to Carlos and his team!
