Best seafood restaurants in Porto
It’s been a classic for decades now and remains a safe haven where seafood is concerned. The amêijoas à bulhão pato (clams with garlic and coriander), percebes (goose barnacles), camarões (shrimps) or the filetes de pescada (hake fillets) – the top seller here – are all good excuses to head for Matosinhos, seafood central.
One of those restaurants that is good for any occasion, whether a romantic dinner, a family lunch or just to snack with friends. For shellfish, you could hardly do better than heading for Marisqueira de Matosinhos. Don’t forget to try the lavagante (lobster), the top house speciality.
