This is a place that's engraved in history. If Salted Cod fish is your thing, then it's gets no better than this. Fat pieces of Cod Fish with their secret baked/fried potatoes. A must visit

This is the most interesting place in Aveiro to try and taste portuguese codfish. All the flavors of portuguese olive oil, with potatoes and codfish is a new experiment. A place not to forget.
