They say this part is small, but we think it is a good size. Their food is good and the service is good. If you want a quiet dinner with good food and music, this is the place.
The price of the chicken pie is 1.80 pounds, which may be the signature dish here, so it is really delicious. I have liked it since I came in, because the environment here is very elegant, sanitary and clean, making me feel very comfortable. And the food here really makes me unable to extricate myself.
This was my second visit in the Fumeiro - and definitely not my last! You can choose between delicious Tapas like an Asparagus/mushroom frittata or whiskey chicken. The service is just perfect - they introduce theirselves and are always courteous.
We wanted something close by our B&B for dinner after an exciting but exhausting day touring Lisbon. Trip Adviser came through with this gem just one block away. Tapas style with smoked food a specialty made Fumiero de Santa Catarina perfect for our 17 yo foodie and our 13 yo 'only the basics' eater. I recommend the smoked salmon, grilled octopus, and cheese and sausage platter--among all the other excellent things we ate. Just FYI, like many small restaurants in Portugal, Fumeiro is cash only.
I went to Fumeiro just this week, with a friend, and we both loved this place. Is small but cozy and the waitress (Sara) could not have been more friendly, efficient and kind. We loved the food! In this restaraunt, the idea is to order some dishes and share them. Sara advise us that for 2 people, 4 would be more than enough. We had the octopus that was juicy and tender, the duck with apple and celery, the fries seasoned with salt, pepper and oregano and the sandwich Costeleta de Boi...eaten together with fries, it was amazing! We ended with the chocolate mousse that, to our taste is a bit too sweet. For sure we want to come back to this place!
Food is delicious, highly fresh, prepared with care and even if it is fully based on traditional ingredients it has that "something more" which makes it unique. I had octopus (so tender it melted on my mouth!) and a delicious dessert (bacon "sweat dreams" with cardamome: sort of fried and flavoured dough with whipped cream). The whole place is very well in line with the "fumeiros" concept, full of tools and details reminding you of the smokers' life. Location: it is very close to a great belvedere square but hidden enough to be out of the typical tourists tracks.
