My friend and I were down in Miami for the Marlins – Yankees game. To avoid the traffic we came down several hours early. My friend who is from Portugal suggested we go for a late lunch/early dinner at one of his favorite restaurants: Old Lisbon Restaurant. Boy am I glad we did! The restaurant is located on a corner so there are plenty of windows and natural lighting. The Decour was very nice with white linens and tablecloths. However, it was the food that impressed me the most. My friend got an octopus dish with boiled potatoes and some vegetables. He was in his glory because it brought him back to his days living in Portugal. I was in a bit of a seafood mood as well. However, I was totally unprepared for the bowl of food that was to come to my table. My dish came with lobster, salmon, Seabass, Florida shrimp, scallops, calamari, mussels and clams. All served with some boiled potatoes and a fantastic white wine sauce. I am a big eater and I couldn’t even eat half of it. All of the seafood was cooked perfectly which I am always impressed with because of the different cooking times of each item. We shared a couple bottles of the house red wine and some Pellegrino. I would have loved to have tried one of their desserts I saw in the case behind me, but I had to throw in the towel and admit defeat as I couldn’t even finish dinner. I thought the prices were very reasonable considering the amount and quality of food we received. I cannot wait until my next trip to Miami so I can go back and try a few of their other classics. Old Lisbon restaurant has three locations throughout the greater Miami area. I hope someone can convince the owner to expand into Broward or Palm Beach county so I can visit more often.
