This restaurant, although located a bit outside the city center of Viana, is worthy of a visit for those who have a car (free parking is available). Serving the best in portuguese traditional food, with incidence on dishes preferred by the people of this northern region, as codfish "Minhoto" style (deep-fried with lovely home-made sliced fries & onion), octopuss, fried...

We held a business dinner for eight at Restaurante Camelo and it was a very enjoyable evening. Seafood dishes included grilled octopus, cod and monkfish. All of them were well-prepared and delicious. The octopus was especially noteworthy. It was fresh, tender and flavorful. The beef dishes were also tasty with the steak tender and perfectly cooked. For all of the... More

Just go there if you can. But go hungry. Even the half meals are massive. They bring out bread (two types) mushrooms,chestnuts,olives and a yummy salad. Admittedly they charge about €4 per person for this. Matt got a fresh giant clam just over 1 kg. yum. Tracey got octopus. I had a half salmon with veges and Steve had a... More

One must visit this restaurant if holidaying in the area. In Summer and good weather you can have a table in open air, under the vineyard shades. Do not eat too many of the delicious starters, if you wish to have enough apetite for the delicious food that will follow. Reasonable prices considering the quality.

My wife is from he region so we visit Viana regularly! I have eaten at Camelo all year round over the past 7 years. It is very consistent, classic and friendly. If you want to eat Portuguese meats, stews, fish, shellfish, soups etc is is the place. As an all rounder (there are better seafood specialist restaurants) I would say... More

It lies a five miles east of Viana da Castelo in northern Portugal on a busy road but has an appealing atmosphere. Families, business people and couples are all enjoying the fare at lunchtime Whilst there is a driveway just by the restaurant, it... More
