Ordered a "Bacalhau em crosta de amendoa, camarao tigre e couscous aramotizados com pimentos" and it was the best codfish I ever ate. Also ordered the "Polvo a Lagareiro" but it wasn't as special as the codfish.

Very modern restaurant on the left bank of Douro. What we ordered was good, bacalhau carpaccio, bacalhau salad, cheese plate. The waitress was very kind and we didnt wait at all. In short a good address on the left bank.
