It is the age old question, if you are out of town do you wait for a table at a busy establishment believing it must be good if so many people are there, or do you take your chances when you see seats available because you are starving? We say at Bacalhoeiro because we were starving...and there were a couple... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel receptionist. Unfortunately our experience was disappointing. My partner ordered cod with clams - the clams were considerably over cooked and the cod lacked any real flavour (although well enough cooked). I had the cod with shrimps and couscous - cod again lacked flavour and the shrimps were over cooked and were tasteless... More

Four of us wanted bacalhau a bras on our last might in Porto, so chose Bacalhoeiro which specialises in the fish. The restaurant is nicely decorated and was full, so service was a bit slow. When the meals arrived they came in four individual tureens, maybe to avoid the waitress's blushes about the size of portions. They were tiny, barely... More

This is a good place to eat codfish in Porto. Near the river and with a great view of Oporto. From the menu, any option is ok. But I recommend the "Bacalhau à Portuguesa" for the simplicity and the "Leite creme" to complete a great meal. The wines available allow you a wide range of great options (cheap but OK... More

Delicious food and excellent service , probably the best Bacalhau i have ever had, cooked to perfection. Ask for the bacalhau a Bras, highly recommend it 20 euros per person you can have a main course (generous portion) and a beer or glass of wine.

Perfect location alongside the walk in front of the old city The place was busy on a Monday night, which is a good sign, however I could find a spot in the terrace and enjoy the view and the summer evenings breeze. Above all, the bacalhau Porto style was delicious, I was satisfied with that dish while sipping a Douro... More

Loved the wide choice of Portuguese recipes of bacalhau ( traditional or not ) they serve. Delicious bacalhau a bras and bacalhau com natas, as well as the 4 other options we tried. Nice setting with an overwhelming view of Porto. Kindest, helpful staff, average price: 20 euros per person with a main dish and a dessert per person. It... More

We keep wanting to enjoy bacalao, but the majority of times we have tried it we found it to be salty. This is even after the proprietors swear that all the salt has been soaked out. This is a very nice restaurant. The ambiance is classy modern Service is reasonably prompt considering it was busy. The menu offers pages upon... More
