At a time when only health food restaurant seem to open in Lisbon, someone took a chance on fried fish and chips. Yes, Britain's favourite dish. But there's a Portuguese twist too: the proprietor discovered that frying was brought to Britain by the Portuguese, and she also made cod the menu's highlight. There's also fried cuttlefish, sole, and a mixed fried seafood plate with squid, mussels and sprat. The full picture includes several types of mayo and tartar sauces.
Time Out tips:
– The cod comes in an exquisite batter.
– Located in Restelo's busiest street (the same one as the “Careca” pastry shop).
– The elderberry juice is the perfect complement to the meal.
