Still one of my favorites

I always come here at least ones when visiting Porto and it is still one of mz favorite restaurants in Gaia. Big portions you should always share for a fair price with very good fish and greate taste.

The fish is great and the price is even better. In this restaurant you eat first class fish at a very low prices. The employees are a little bit rude but nothing really bad ...

I recently visited Casa de Pescador with my Family and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It was in fact so good we went back a second night. The food was fab, especially the Steak and the Banoffie Pie was the best I have ever tasted. We would thoroughly recommend this Restaurant to anyone visiting Portugal. The staff were also very nice... More

We've been holidaying in Gaia for a number of years now and on our first visit we took bikes around the headland to Afurada and found Casa do Pescador and what a find. We always make a point of visiting for lunch and for dinner and it never disappoints. The portions are big, so bear that in mind. Fish is... More

Best seafood restaurant around. I always try to come here when I am in Porto or Gaia. The portions are so huge that you can easily share them by two or the stews even by three. The service is very good and fast. The fish is grill freshly directly on the street in front if the restaurant.

A large dining hall cheered up with photos alluding to fishermen and local characters, decorative elements about fishing and table blue tablecloths. Fast and efficient service, with nice mood and friendliness. Moderate sound level. I recomend the cod fritters "pataniscas de bacalhau" freshly made, and the amazing seafood rice. For drink the "sangria". In short, a good relation price quality... More

This is one of the places with best value for money ratio I’ve ever visited. Serving mostly fish and seafood dishes, a pot of seafood rice goes for about 16 € and easily serves 3 or 4 people. I saw many reviews saying that employees are rude but I have visited for many times and never have I been mistreated,... More

We ate lunch outside so we got to see them cooking what we had ordered. The octopus and clams were excellent. The staff was also great. Very nice place to visit when you're in Porto.

I always love to return to Casa do Pescador, as the food is cheap and GOOD. You can take a 1/2 portion of seafood rice and it will be enough for 4 people. Seriously! Love it.
