Best Lisbon Seafood Restaurants

Lisbon has definetly some of the best seafood restaurants in Europe. The reason is the atlantic ocean and the fresh fish always available. Many people wonder why? It’s simple: because of our geography. Portugal has the 3rd biggest fishing area in Europe and 11th in the World. Data shows that 11% of total fishing area of the European Union is Portuguese. It’s 4.000.000 Km2 (yes, four million square km), the whole area of the European Union standalone!

Multiple awarded restaurants feature this list of seafood meals. Please note that some places listed below may not be inside the city but on the coast of Lisbon, usually within 30min distance.
