Casa Portuguesa do Pastel de Bacalhau
Ranked #18 of 23 Quick Bites in Porto
Price range: US$3 - US$11
Restaurant details
Reviewed 5 June 2018 via mobile

Pricey but different. Quirky place offering what is essentially cod croquette in quite a strong cheese sauce, accompanied by chilled white port. A regional delicacy which is worth a try but perhaps not worth 9 euros. Pleasant surroundings though and quick service.

The Pastel de Bacalhau (cod fish cake with cheese) is decent, the port is pretty tasty. Freshly cooked, too salty. Crispy on the outside, and melted cheese tangy cheese inside. Service is acceptable, warm and friendly. However, they do get Two Stars because they are overpriced. Tourist Trap! Sit outside at the tables with a view of Clerigos Tower.

Selling cold and tasteless cod cakes with an incredibly small glass of port wine and calling it "the Portugal experience" is ridiculous. Furthermore charging 9€ for it is absolutely overpriced.
But the port was decent and the staff really nice, therefore it gets two points.

Pop in here to see how they are made by all means, its really fun, and the girl making them poses for tourists all day long (poor thing), but €5.50 for a bad shot of espresso in a cheap plastic cup and small cod dumpling is rich even for London! Tables settings outside are cheap and nasty, redeemed only by a view of the splendid Tower of Dos Clerigos. To make matters worse, the cafe on the corner is half the price and dumplings are just as good, if not better! If you do come all this way, do yourself a favour, climb the aforementioned tower especially around 1800, breathtakimg views, worth the relatively easy 240 step home up.
