Out of passion for the Portuguese cuisine

The only Portuguese seafood and fish restaurant in Bucharest

The story behind the Dancing Lobster

Jose Gaspar is writing a chapter in the history of the Portuguese cuisine which carries those who wish to enjoy an authentic culinary experience to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, by savoring the kind of fish and seafood that you can only eat on the Algarve.

The passion for good food prepared with traditional ingredients, the wines which have been selected from the most important vineyards from Portugal, and the sunny atmosphere all year round, all of these ensure that the Dancing Lobster has a place on the list of restaurants that you want to revisit every time you feel like taking a break from the busy urban life.

The Dancing Lobster captures the traditional Portuguese flavors in recipes which surprise us with a delightful taste that comes from their very simplicity.  The fresh fish and seafood brought each week by plane from Portugal and exhibited at the restaurant window are the protagonists of the impeccable taste from the dishes made by the “craftsmen” from the only Portuguese restaurant in Bucharest.

Fish and seafood brought each week from the Atlantic Ocean

Depending on the season, you can find at the Dancing Lobster the best the Ocean has to offer

Our menu was created by a team of Portuguese chefs, passionate about Lusitanian cuisine and eager to make it appreciated in Romania. You can see them in our open kitchen while carefully prepare each dish.
The reason we decided to bring most of our team from Portugal is that cooking is part of the culture and lifestyle there. The Portuguese live and communicate through food and we wanted our guests to have this authentic experience.

In order for the “message” from the kitchen to reach you exactly as we want it, we have formed a team of passionate waiters, for whom customer satisfaction comes first. In addition to an impeccable service, they can help you choose dishes, with recommendations and advice on matching tastes.
