Restaurant: A dandy in Lisbon!

So after many tidbits in previous posts a post by itself, well worth the visit and now the wait. After coming to Lisbon for several years and trying many restaurants I finally got a queu from a local to visit this one back in 2014. Well it has been my home each there afterward and already looking forward to see the new face.

This is Cervejaria Pinoquio a brewery and restaurant at  Rua de Santa Justa 54, just facing the wonderful Rossio and praça dos Restauradores. With tables outside facing the bustling Praça dos Restauradores, this restaurant attracts tourists but also many locals who have always enjoyed its seafood, especially its clams.  The steaks are also popular, all served in a very relaxed, unpretentious ambience.

I have many great stories of eating and drinking at by now my friends restaurant Pinoquio at Praça dos Restauradores. The typical Portuguese seafood and vinho verde wine place, love it. Many stories here; like the time gathered all my friends to come here thinking only 7 will come, the rest show up by taxi and we were 22 without reservation. I told the staff ,quick needed to find space, they knew me from many times here, and they move, so fast they created three spaces with extra tables/chairs to accommodate my friends, they were all impress of my contacts lol!

I have ordered my usual beers and then my favorite dish Feijoada de marisco. This is magnificent casserole of shrimp, lobsters,clams, and white beans stew, just fab and of course enough for one person ,really it could be ordered for two.

A twist of fate that all good will end unfortunately not sure yet . The historic Cervejaria Pinoquio (brewery), in Praça dos Restauradores, has new owners and will close for works, going to be inserted into a hotel! . The new owners of Pinoquio, who in addition to the brewery of Filipe Costa (old resto owner) bought the remaining floors of the building, plan to keep the brewery on the ground floor of the building and increase the terrace area. Stay tune for its completion estimated end of 2019. Stay tune, I know I will and if you know something let me know please.

Their official webpage is under construction of course , here: Official Restaurante Pinoquio Lisbon

And remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!
