Solar dos Presuntos – Seafood Restaurant – Lisbon

by in Where to eat

Our son, 10, loves seafood.  To eat, to watch, to catch.  As such, Solar dos Presuntos, our corner restaurant, has long held his fascination:  today the window display contains an enormous seabass, suspended above a mass of lobsters, his mouth filled with a giant trout.  So when a celebration was recently in order, Solar dos Presuntos was the obvious restaurant of choice for our mother/son date.  The soup was smooth and rich.  My award-winning pataniscas (bacalhau cakes) were tasty.  But my son’s shrimp were spectacular.  Yes, I snitched.  At €50 for two people, including tip but no dessert and only one glass of the (excellent) house Vinho Verde, Solar dos Presuntos is a bit pricey.  But worth it.  We’ll be back. Solar dos Presuntos:  located at the far end of Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, at the Elevador da Lavra funicular.  Closed Sundays and holidays.
