Casa Faz Frio Review

This convivial adega (tavern)—complete with wood beams, stone floors, and bunches of garlic suspended from the ceiling—may look a little faded. But it is now one of just two in Lisbon to boast gabinetes—paneled booths traditionally used for trysts but also handy for working lunches—and is a great place to sample rustic food on the cheap. There is a different bacalhau dish every day, and paella is always on the menu; other house specialties include grilled cuttlefish and secretos, lean meat from the belly of the porco preto pig.

    OK for the locals

    Not as exceptional or welcoming as we'd hoped but very good value

    Simple place with great food

    First impressions aren't great - it could do with a refurb - but the locals obviously love it and it serves generous portions of home cooking. Bacalhau is excellent, as is any other fish dish, and service friendly.
