They call for the best bacalhau from Porto. I don't if is true, but it is tastefull, well served. Tha staff are very kindy and friendly. They suggested a excelent wine, 22 € a bottle! Maybe others are good, but this one is the one of the bests, with sure.

First time to a restaurant that primarily serves cod - but does so very well. Good portions and good quality. Very reasonable prices, including the wine. Friendly staff and nice environment. Thoroughly recommended.

Every time I come to Portugal I try to pass at this restaurant, not only by the fact that I love codfish, but also because they know how to cook it. The menu is constantly changing with new contemporaneous receipts, although, they always keep the classical dishes. I do recommend this place!!

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 :)

Ok, if you don't like bacalhau (salt cod), stay away :) They ONLY have bacalhau, but it was good. The food looked fresh, the serving style was good, it tasted good. 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
