As a place this restaurant is quite ordinary and nothing really special. When we made reservations on the phone they didn't even bother to tell us that they onely reserve inside and not outside. The food was too salty and in no way it was worth the money we paid. The staff was completely clueless and we weren't able to... More

If you want to eat cod, and why wouldn't you if you are visiting Porto, then this restaurant is to be recommended. After a morning of wandering around the old town then crossing the Douro for some port tasting, we were ready for lunch. We shared a small portion of goat's cheese cooked with honey and nuts. As a main... More

Forget the great view of Porto's Ribeira, the bridge and Douro river. The place says by the name: only serving codfish! The starters were not more than OK, but the main dish was really worth! For around 14 euros (27 for 2 people), they serve a fair piece of tall codfish. We had Joao do Porto, and would definitely come... More

Excellent food. We had two dishes and shared - Grilled Cod and Grilled Salmon. This restaurant specialises in Cod and it was delicious. The Salmon was first class too. The Cod was carefully taken from the bone and served to my plate by Joao, the waiter. He had recommended this particular Cod dish and it far exceeded our expectations. The... More

We shared an excellent dried presunto starter. Great main courses - both variations of bacalhau. All in all solid quality and good taste. Nice place and attentive service. Sit inside; much calmer and still with a view.

The "Bacalhau a Joao do Porto" is a generous grilled cod and I recommend! The price is a lit bit overrated but the view is nice over the brigde D. LUIS and Oporto side.

If you like cod, you should try this restaurant right on the long river. The waitress was very kind and gentle. The cod with potatoes and cheese was very tasty and the cod burger original! We suggest to try this place if you want to have a nice seafood lunch or dinner on the villa nova side of the river.

Thank Antonella L
