Time Out usually defines this restaurant as the right place to get a cod overdose. The joke is obvious as it’s name translates to “The House of Cod”, but we have not yet found a better way to describe this house - a real house, with stone arches, which once housed the stables of the Palace of the Duke of Lafões - where they are so loyal to this fish that it’s represented in 25 of their dishes. From cod the Brás to Gomes de Sá way, from the Margarida da Praça to the Zé do Pipo, you will find the usual suspects and even those less noble parts, such as the tongue or faces.
Perfect for: taking someone who’s never been there – and making yourself look good, of course.
Must try: the pataniscas de bacalhau - codfish fritters - winners of the first contest for the Best Patanisca in Lisbon.
