We really felt comfortable at this restaurant even with a minor language barrier they tried very hard to help us with everything. It seems to be family owned and run which was a nice touch. The food was incredible and well priced for traditional Portuguese local seafood. We were more than happy to leave a tip. Little advice don't go on a Monday, they are closed.

Last week a close friend of mine, who is now living in Washington, came to Porto. I suggested meeting up at Salta o Muro in Matosinhos . It was like travelling in time . Nice smells of home-made cooking , the friendly smile and local accent of the owner , the decoration reminiscent of an old grocer's shop (or 'mercearias' as we say in Portuguese) , where food was sold and meals served in the adjoining room the " tascas ", all of which transported us back to our roots .

The starter , smoked ham , olives and " broa " slowly made me feel at home . The " arroz de grelos " and grilled fish made me travel to my childhood . The smell of caramel on top of " leite creme " rounded of the meal leaving a sweet taste . Nice to go back to one's roots !

Awesome food! And good local wine.
We ate out on the pavement at this harbour side restaurant. Next to the commercial port, one should not expect exuberant surroundings but locals are everywhere!
Sardines, sea bass and salad and a great Alvarhino. Not to mention the two local desserts!
Don't get to Porto without visiting this local gem!

It's not the restaurant to come for meat, although they can serve you some steaks if you really need to get away from fish. The fish offer is fresh, well cooked and served, in a cozy and nicely set atmosphere. The wines offer good choices at normal restaurant prices, although in the North of Portugal the Douro region whites and the Verde Branco (Alvarinho if your pocket allows) should be the main options.
