We stopped in very late one evening and instead of being rudely shown the door, the woman shared a bit about the conserves (canned/tinned) fish and seafood. She invited us to come back the next day and even gave us a discount to be used for lunch in the adjoining restaurant.

To be sure, we did go back! It was one of the nicest experiences! Portuguese are just really nice people and made our stay so enjoyable! The woman's treatment of us made an impression, and it was followed the next day by even more of the same - excellence! She helped us pick out the best sizes of conserves, as well as the best combinations of seafood and fish in tins. With no pressure or insistence, she helped guide us to make good choices that would easily pass TSA requirements of liquids and enabled us to take home just what we wanted. We will be going back to Portugal, and we WILL be returning to Loja das Consereves as well! Obigrada!

A great original idea, a restaurant based on conserved fish...sardines are my favourite. The staff are warm, friendly and encouraging to take a risk. A must when you visit downtown Lisbon.

This shop has all the history and depth of the choices you can make when buying conserved fish in Portugal. They represent 19 different companies that came together and developed standards for conserving fish in tins. They have info in Portuguese and English on the history of each company and an impressive array of canned tuna, sardines, mackerel, fish pates and so on. Super friendly service too- they will walk you around store and talk you through it or leave you alone as you wish. They package up your selections nicely! A god gift or treat for yourself!

Go here and learn about the industry and the companies involved but don’t buy here! This place is a tourist trap when you can go just a couple of store fronts down and find the very same things for a fraction of the price! Just so you know.....
