We visited this restaurant by end of a hop on hop off tour to Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia. Being in Portugal for the last 6 days, we have tried several restaurants of all categories. I have never been disappointed of any of the restaurants we visited because of the high quality food and excellent service we received. With... More

we ordered filet, salmon and cod fish, all were bad. service was bellow average, slow, no attention. you can have better food and service at Rivera at the other side of the river. the ambient is modern, but the basics are not covered.

If youre expecting best of the city on Riberia then you deserve what you get, if youre looking for a meal that isnt terrible and a great location, this fits the bill as good as any. as the name suggests dont expect anything else (though they do have 3 non-bachalhao options), Their Bacalhao is superbly average. Unevenly cured or cooked,... More

Traditionally bacalhau in Portugal is the dried version (not coming from Portugal any more, but arriving from all over the world), but in many restaurants you cannot see from the menu if they mean this, or the fresh version (which often comes grilled, and with french fries, you know what I mean). We like the dried one, especially the bacalhau... More

This restaurant is really one of best placed in Portugal. The terrace on the riverside has a very nice atmosphere. Not only very good dishes but hard working and nice people to serve you. You will go there more often....

Normally I do not go to the same place when I visit a new city twice, but this restaurant is worth breaking this habit! The service was super nice and friendly. The food - super delicious. And location - just great. Not to mention that the prices are NOT scary at all either. Recommended!

Codfish is a very famous ingredient on portuguese cuisine, is often said that portuguese can cook cod fish over a 1000 different ways. This restaurant is all about cod fish, from starters to mains, there's plenty of options, some of them more traditional, other more creative and modern. I tried 3 different types, my favorite is "Bacalhau à Brás". The... More

This restaurant specialises in cod and has 14 different cod dishes on the menu. We had a lovely meal here whilst looking over to the Ribeira on the other side of the Douro. Good service and good value. Would definitely recommend and go again!

This dish may not be everyones cup of tea, especially if you have ever seen it in its non hydrated uncooked form, but I actually like it. We were walking passed and spoke to the waiter who was polite and didn't put us under any pressure to eat there. We went back later and got a table outside. The food... More
