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

As a place this restaurant is quite ordinary and nothing really special. When we made reservations on the phone they didn't even bother to tell us that they onely reserve inside and not outside. The food was too salty and in no way it was worth the money we paid. The staff was completely clueless and we weren't able to... More

If you want to eat cod, and why wouldn't you if you are visiting Porto, then this restaurant is to be recommended. After a morning of wandering around the old town then crossing the Douro for some port tasting, we were ready for lunch. We shared a small portion of goat's cheese cooked with honey and nuts. As a main... More

Forget the great view of Porto's Ribeira, the bridge and Douro river. The place says by the name: only serving codfish! The starters were not more than OK, but the main dish was really worth! For around 14 euros (27 for 2 people), they serve a fair piece of tall codfish. We had Joao do Porto, and would definitely come... More

Excellent food. We had two dishes and shared - Grilled Cod and Grilled Salmon. This restaurant specialises in Cod and it was delicious. The Salmon was first class too. The Cod was carefully taken from the bone and served to my plate by Joao, the waiter. He had recommended this particular Cod dish and it far exceeded our expectations. The... More
