“Worth going out of your way for”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

My companion and I had a perfect dinner at SalPoente, Portuguese for "Setting Salt", so called because it faces the salt flats with their beautiful sunsets. We were welcomed warmly and shown to a table in the corner, well away from the air-conditioning -- the personnel had remembered from a previous visit that my companion dislikes the blast of cold air (such service!). When it came to choosing the wine, the wine waiter also remembered her preference in wines. The food was excellent: refined and just right in both quantity and quality. I had scallops (cooked to perfection), breast of duck and then deconstructed cheesecake, absolutely nothing to fault at all. My companion had cod (the house speciality is bacalhau) and then a succulent brownie. The waiters were always available for detailed requests but never intrusive. The restaurant was relatively full but everyone remained calm and relaxed. I can't imagine a better way to spend an evening, especially since the decor is varied and interesting, with plenty to look at and admire. And it's not expensive! For visitors to Portugal, this is well worth a special trip to Aveiro.

“Classy, smallish and steep”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Went for dinner as part of a group, invited by the host organization. Classy space, charming ambience... Though tasty, found the portions a bit on the smallish side, specially when in relation to the price. Again, tasty. But not really the place I would go back to in a hurry...

“The best of historic and contemporary Aveiro”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

We arrived late in the afternoon on a rainy Sunday but were welcomed by the staff and ushered into the beautiful dining room. Pedro/Joao described the specialties of the house and we decided on two different salted cod dishes, the 'revolt' and 'the contemporary', paired with a refreshing Portuguese vinho verde. The service from Tiago and Eva was excellent, friendly and well-paced. The main dishes were both tasty and an interesting twist on this traditional portuguese dish. We also stayed for desert: again both dishes were delicious as well as being beautifully presented. Tiago showed us around the upstairs facilities and bar - this is a really lovely restaurant for a special meal in Aveiro.
