Portucale, in Bonfim, is one of the city's most venerable classics. Why is it one of Porto's 50 best restaurants? Because it ignores trends, within the kitchen or elsewhere. It serves traditional fare, cooked as in 1969, the year it opened for business. Some menu options have been there since the beginning, such as the Portucale steak, flambéed in the dining room, or the Walewska fillets, poached in champagne and covered in lobster. Also unchanged: the decoration, dominated by velvet, leather and wood.
