Situated directly above the fish market with lovely views onto one of the canals. The lunch menu of 3 courses + coffee is just 9.50€. All the staff speak English and are so attentive and pleasant. Very atmospheric. Easy day trip from Porto.

We popped into the Fish Market after spotting it on one of the canal tours. Fortunately we managed to get a seat by the balcony although I would suggest that it's not needed if you can't get one, the view isn't what makes this restaurant...More

Last visit 2 years ago was excellent! Recent visit showed us that quality and typical Portugese restaurants undergo a metamorphose when tourists and money making prevail on authenticity! The atmosphere is gone and the waiter responded to our wish for a vinho verde in a...More

this restaurant is just above the fish market, so obviously fish is primary on the menu. Prices are reasonable (though not cheap). The monkfish & shrimp skewer had a single portion big enough for the two of us. The monkfish and potatoes were the delicious....More
