O Caldo Verde
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Far from its golden age, when it was regularly featured in the press (several yellowed cut-up newspaper articles are there to show it), O Caldo Verde is a place where traditional cuisine continues to be as it should: honest. Usually full at lunch, with smaller crowds for dinner, it remains faithful to the recipes that made its name: stuffed squid, monkfish fillets and several cod dishes, including Brás and Lagareiro-style. It also has good steaks and homemade chips.
Time Out tips:
– During the Popular Saints Festivals season, a grill is installed outdoors where sardines are cooked.
– Old-fashioned “baba de camelo” toffee mousse? They have it.
– If you want to try their specialities, call in advance to make a reservation.
