The typical green and white parasols offer shade to the tourist hordes that seek Pinóquio to have good Portuguese shellfish – the Bulhão Pato clams made in a coffee pot or the prawns à la plancha are particularly good – or to try the house's most celebrated snack, the chopped “pica-pau” beef, with tender, rare meat in a garlic, butter and wine sauce, which comes to the table in a steaming pan. This, dear reader, is one of those times when we Lisboners don't mind sharing the shade with tourists – the food is well worth it.

Time Out tips:

– Pay attention to the prices – the bill can soar fast.

– They have a sort-of-secret steak sandwich.

– The round-cut chips are addictive.

Não é mentira nenhuma que esta é uma das melhores e mais populares cervejarias da cidade. Os mariscos nunca desiludem e apesar de ultimamente estar recheado de turistas (e ainda bem para a casa) continua a transbordar Portugal sem a necessidade de ostentar um Gourmet no nome ou no conceito.
