Lonely Planet review
Located on the west side of the historic Praça Tiradentes, CBF opened in 2007, breathing much new life into a tired neighborhood. Despite the newness, CBF is an atmospheric place and a top choice for enjoying delicious bacalhau (cod) dishes, scrumptious paellas and a host of other Iberian favorites. After dining with friends at the large picnic tables, you will be well-placed to explore the nearby samba clubs in Lapa.
