The Bacalhoa (Cod) seems to be the dish of Porto and this restaurant offers quite some. Make sure to order different dishes to try more than one way to cook the Cod. The service was not that great but this place has good food and a nice view on the city from the other side of the Douro.

Something that's not common in Oporto, at least in my experience, is good and friendly service in restaurants. This one is an exception. The service was very, very friendly and fast. The food irself was excellet too, and the price is not that expensive. I recommend.

The restaurant is located in Cais de Gaia, facing Ribeira and the steel bridge Don Luis. Beautiful scenery. The food is excellent and the prices very reasonable. Nice place to be.

This seemed like a safe bet - white cloth tablecloths, a great view of Porto across the Douro. Upon sitting, the waitress brought us our "starters", the standard practice to bump up the bill, it seems, but one which we never minded in the slightest. In addition to the ubiquitous olives and bread, there was also a pair of cod... More

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.
