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.

There are so many food options in Porto, choosing the right one is pretty easy as most restaurants serve good quality food with nice hospitality. We chose this place due to its outside appearance and menu options which mainly were Cod, the fish that only the Portuguese know how to prepare ;-) We entered and were greeted by the staff... More

Located among many restaurants along the river's edge at Vila Nova de Gaia, it was recommended by the reception desk at my hotel for cod recipies. I liked a lot the Bacalhau a moda do Bras and the sangria, but sadly my Bacalhau a Ze do Pipo was salty and the Cod's salad wasn't shredded as I hoped for. Note:... More

Literally right under our apartment, this tiny little roadside place is always full - they have a daily menu board which I noticed changed slightly daily. Prices were very affordable and service just fine. Cod dinner for $8.5 Euro is amazing. Great for lunch or a quick dinner. We had lunch one day. There is a small bar right next... More

Bacalhoeiro is a fine restaurant on the left bank of the River Douro, in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal. Their specialty is Bacalhau - Salted Codfish - the Portuguese delicacy. We had the best olive-oil confit Bacalhau one can desire, preceeded by sensational Bolinhos de Bacalhau (tapas of fried salted codfish in mashed potatoes), all of it harmonized with cold... More
