Popped into this restaurant by chance and it turned out to be a very good meal. Nice bread and great cheese to eat on the table. Ordered paella, which was freshly cooked and packed with seafood. Very cheap local wine, available by the litre. This...More

This traditional restaurant offers simple no-frills Portuguese food - what you would expect to eat at home. It is a small place, that includes in addition to a few tables, two small cubicles for private or family dining. The cubicles fit about 6 people. The...More

Easy to find, along Rua Dom Pedro V, this is a good option in the Barrio Alto. We had the paella, and enjoyed it thoroughly - we were warned that it would take about 45 minutes, but it was slightly faster than this. Very traditional...More

I always worry when several things are not on the menu as advertised. Already a pretty basic menu not having a number of dishes was not a good start. The restaurant is old, service not bad and it definitely looked like a locals place. My...More

We ate Faz Frio twice while staying in Lisbon. It's an old fashioned place, both in the decor- think 1950s, or earlier, and in the quality of food. The fish is fresh and delicious, as is the meat. We asked our waiter to tell us...More

For most Portuguese people, this is not a Restaurant: it's their Grandmother's kitchen! If you're Portuguese and miss your (grand)parents traditional food, or if you're curious about old fashion Portuguese dishes, you must go to Casa Faz Frio. That's where you'll find: the most wonderful...More

Faz Frio is a very simple restaurant. Both in terms of the food, as in terms of the interior. But we loved it very much. The food was quite heavy but full of taste. We had a great garlic soup and something with sausages. Staff...More
