Vital to try this cod as you make your way around Porto. A pleasure every which way.

The selection of the place, with its popular prices, remains well- rounded thanks to the privileged views it offers over the Duero and of the other river bank (which will be delightfully lit up by the time you turn up to have supper.) The dishes are plentiful, given the great affluence of people who tend to turn up at the place attracted by its popularity and the reputation of its stoves for fine dining. Let’s get on with it!
