Not bad at all, not amazing food but certainly more than adequate. I had fried cod, average not bad and wife had kid which was good but not incredible. Service was wee bit slow but waiter was friendly. All in all a decent place to...More

We went here because of good reviews on TA, but sorry, fellow reviewers, we were disappointed. O Recanto was one of the least interesting or tasty places in 3 weeks in Portugal. Maybe it is because we had the traditional dish of fish and rice,...More

I visited O Recanto because I got lost seeking my first choice and this was convenient, with a good-looking menu. A Michelin-quality meal it is not. But for perhaps the same reason--simple presentations of excellent food rather than a chef's struggle for perfection--it is worth...More

Dropped into Viana do Castelo with a friend :-) To see her colleagues - so I went for a walk along the seafront, whilst she was busy. Around 20:30 we met up and saw this "little" place - it's just off the main street Alameda...More

It's great to see one dedicated waiter working his heart off for our pleasure. He's great. But a consequence can be that service is slow if busy. I would advise the place to hire an extra waiter for the seasonal months. So when our starters...More
