The bacalhau was excellent, octopus was great, the wine simply fantastic. Save some room for dessert as well! If unsure which of the restaurants on the Ribeira to pick, this one is a safe choice.

Situated 5 min away from Ribeira ,the Bacalhau has a perfect location for a romantic drink watching the sunset on the Douro. the wine choice is great,the entradas are very good, the food so so.
the service is friendly and quick, and the Bacalhau is one of my favorite spot in Porto for a romantic drink in a scenic environment.

Thanks for the review!
Glad to read that you enjoyed the place for drinks and starters. Regarding your opinion about the main dish I´m sorry if something wasn´t that great. Is not a common place for us.
It would be great if you could come back for a perfect experience at our restaurant!

This small restaurant is located in a grest spot on the edge of the Douro and is a wonderful spot for a pre-dinner drink watching the sunset. Service is very good but the place is let down by food that is only very average. Great location for a drink but head a few blocks back for dinner.

I booked this restaurant for a party of 12 people for Friday 9th May a few weeks ago. Received a confirmation email from Francisca Sottomayor at the restaurant. But when we arrived on Friday night they said that they had no record in their book and they did not have any room. They said that we could come back in 1 / 1.5 hours but as it was already 9pm this was not really an option. They could not recommend any solution so we were left to try to find somewhere else to eat. Not an easy task for a group of 12.

So all in all evening ruined.
