Expert review of Cervejaria Trindade

This old monastic brewery is a Lisbon institution.

So it is slightly touristy, but Lisboetas have been dining here for generations and it's etched as much into the hearts of every local as it is into every guidebook.

Food and drink: 

As authentically Portuguese as you'll find in Lisbon. Mountains of shellfish are ferried between tables, where prawns, clams, crab, lobster and the alien-looking goose barnacles are favourites. Being an old brewery, the ice-cold homebrew is also excellent.

Recommended dishes: 

After gorging on a starter platter of shellfish, I always like the traditional steak dish, bitoque (fried minute steak on bed of chips, topped with a fried egg) for a main.

Ambience: 

This is a family favourite where the grand ecclesiastical ceilings swallow up hums of gobbling pleasure from the hordes below.

Service: 

Attentive and efficient.

Location: 

Just at the top end of Chiado, it's easily found.

Price advice: 

Mains are between 10-15 euros.

Tables to book: 

The back section is non-smoking, but the real local atmosphere is in the front smoking area.
