“A Great Portuguese Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

We had lunch at Parro do Valentim after visiting the Petropolis / Itaipava region. My husband had been craving codfish for a while, and he was not disappointed. We had cod balls as starters and he ordered the Valentim cod - he loved both! I ordered meat and that was good too. We did not try their Portuguese wine because we still had to drive, but we would have loved to. The service was attentive and friendly, and the prices were fair. We would come back.

“The best Portuguese cuisine in the Itaipava/Petrópolis region”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

Their bowling os de bacalhao are some of the best we have ever found. They are light not greasy and really have bacalhau in them!

“Cozy little place with focus on the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2010

Have an excellent codfish (like the Valentim or the Guilhermina) with a chilled Vinho Verde (ask for the suggestion, in my case was an Acacio). Access is easy an the service is great.
