The right place to overdose on codfish – or to impress tourists. A Casa do Bacalhau (“the cod house”) was born to worship Portugal's favourite fish, and worship it they do: the menu has around 25 recipes featuring cod, originating from all corners of Portugal. The usual suspects are all there, such as cod à la Zé do Pipo, Gomes de Sá or Brás, but there are some uncommon versions a well, such as cod curry or cod carpaccio.

Time Out tips:

– It's not a rule, but should be, that you always begin with cod cakes.

– If you are not that much into cod, they do other dishes (and not just fish ones).

– Save space for desserts, almost all of them traditional recipes.
