Great traditional Portuguese food, with a contemporary twist.

Great traditional Portuguese food, with a contemporary twist. Have a fabulous space and the staff is very helpful. Do not try the sushi, I consider is not their specialty and it take to long to be served.

The restaurant's décor is superb and very appealing. Its pinkish lighting is a negative factor since it alters significantly the colour of food and of beverages, turning everything into a deeper shade if pink. Management should change this issue. Staff should be friendlier to Clients' requests. It is a good restaurant but needs some improvement in certain areas: lighting, Staff's... More

I cannot explain how great this place was. A friend who used to live in Portugal told us we had to try this place and he couldn't have been more correct. Paulo (sp?) the manager was insanely service oriented. Couldn't ask for more. And all of his recommendations were dead on per food, wine, etc. Tapas, entrees, desserts were all... More

This is a big but cozy restaurant in Matosinhos, beautifully decorated with different atmospheres to be in. It has one of the best mojitos I know. Sushi is very, very good and definitely wort a try! Service is also very good. Park available in front. An exquisite restaurant that you shouldn't miss.

We love Quarenta4! The welcome you get when you enter is always friendly and courteous. There is a big dining space downstairs for non-smokers and a beautiful upstairs, mezzanine for smokers. The sushi here is fabulous, clear fresh flavours. Inventive combinations of taste. Spicy with sweet. Sour with freshness. All kinds of variety in perfect balance. We had a beautiful,... More

I have been wanting to go to this restaurant for ages and it was so worth the wait! The atmosphere is charming and cool. The staff are excellent and can give you great advice if you need any.

this restaurant serves fantastic sushis, which sound strange as it is a trendy portuguese restaurant. But not only the sushi is very good the other plates, which is for me always fish, is excellent. But the desserts are from another planet. The wines served are always portuguese form small farms, with excpetional taste. For sure a restaurant to visit.
