I visited this restaurant after reading all the good reviews and I (and my family as well) was disappointed. The cod dish that two of us chose was good (a bit too salty however, even for my daughter (who loves salt) but the chicken breast I chose with my son had a weird texture but was well seasoned. My son... More

Loved the local food, had a delicious cod based dish, my husband found his too rich however I think this was due to a bad choice I really liked it. Had lovely chocolate mouse for desert, was recommended to us by locals and could see why, locals were waiting for a table whilst we ate. Very attentive saff.

This restaurant located in Vila Nova de Gaia riverside serves a very good combination of Portuguese classic dishes and modern cooking. We had a delicious codfish burger and perfectly grilled octopus served with hard-boiled eggs and green peppers salad. Good service and helpful staff. Great view of the Douro river, Porto bridges and Porto old town.

We found this restaurant by chance and it was one of the best meals we had in Portugal. Well cooked codfish, served in a variety of ways, delicious! Not to mention the friendly staff and the wonderful view:) If you like codfish just go for it :)

There were quite a lot of bones in our fish, which was a bit sloppy of course, and the waitress didn't smile once for the first 30 minutes, but... More

We asked the staff person at Quinta Do Valnova (yes, while tasting delicious port ) for a recommendation for fish & authentic Portuguese food. We are so glad we followed his advice. So many options in the area are mediocre. The restaurant features the tradition fish (Cod or bacalao) prepared in a variety of ways. We chose dishes from the... More

we decided to share 2 dishes of Bachalau: 1 was delicious with sliced patatoes and the other one was really not good with a tasteless and dry bachalau (overcooked? old?) with too much oil. will not go back
