Rei dos Frangos Tips (6)

Rei dos Frangos: "The King of Chicken"

I heard great things about this restaurant (also known as "Bom Jardim"), that the roasted chicken is the best in the world, blah blah blah. So I gave it a try. Yes, the chicken was good, but not to die for. Maybe I went on a bad day, but it's hardly one of the best choices in the city. The price however, makes it much more inviting, with the famous chicken, fries, a salad, and wine for about 10 euros! So yes, I'd recommended it to those looking for an inexpensive, rather rustic experience.

Rei dos Frangos: The first night when you dont want to take a risk

Its in a sidestreet from the Rua portas Sta Antao and it is quiet famous also by Lisbonese people, so it is not a tourist trap.
With three we paid 35 euro. Watch out for the pollo assado. The sell it as one portion, but its a whole chicken with fried patatos and enough for two.
We had 3 salad, 3 pudim flan, coffee and one liter of red house wine. There is a terrace. In the winter you have to go is very busy and it smells very strongly. What do you smell ? Pollo assado. The have a normal menu, but 75 % of the visitors choose their famous pollo.

Favorite Dish Pollo assado ! Grilled chicken....

Rei dos Frangos: Great chicken

Wonderful restaurant, easy to find. Great food, nice prices. We found it by accident because our favourite restaurant was closed but never regretted it. Next time it's gonna be hard to choose because "our" restaurant is just around the corner.

Favorite Dish The grilled chicken is great. There's only one restaurant that tops it and that is the King of Chicken in Guya (Algarve).

We really enjoyed our meal in a small café called Rei dos Frangos/Bom Jardim

Favorite Dish We had the spit roast chicken with the delicious (hot) piri piri sauce. The waiter was incredibly friendly and the strawberries were divine. He’ll look a bit older than this now as the picture was taken about 10 years ago.

Rei dos Frangos: Rei dos Frangos

This is not in any way posh but is central, cheap and very tasty as well as friendly nad popular. Eat outside. The staff will deal with any funnies who approach and it does add to interest.

Favorite Dish We ate chicken because my friend has rather traditional tastes but there is a wide menu. The chicken is meant to satisfy two - and it does!

Rei dos Frangos (it's only one of my favorites, really!)
It's great if you like simple, down to earth food. This restaurant has nothing to do with fine dining. It's a hole in the wall, a completely undecorated square box with simple furniture and a huge fire where the chickens are being roasted.

Favorite Dish They specialize in roast chicken (their name translates as 'chicken king')and chicken's definitely what you should have.
