We don’t hold back about the stuff we love, and when it comes to the Adega São Nicolau, we love everything. There’s a menu full of great choices – chicken bordelaise, octopus fillets with rice, or the perfect appetiser, cod cakes. Then there are the desserts (all homemade) and the outdoors tables, overlooking the Douro river. There’s also great service – António Coelho has been doing this since he was 11.
Time Out tips:
– The restaurant is small, the queues are (very) long. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait.
– Try the tongue stew. It's brilliant.
