Amazing lunch with gambas, sardines and linguado (sole fish). Extremely fresh, very well seasoned dishes. Great, friendly service. Lovely wine. Parking with valet at no extra cost too. Couldn't have finished the weekend with a better Sunday lunch. Will be back!

Reviews led us to O Valentim and we were not disappointed! Starters of clams and prawns followed by the the fish. Everything was fresh and simply cooked. They let the ingredients do the talking at this restaurant. A very pleasant white made the meal perfect.

Our expectations in this cozy restaurant were high and they did not let us down. The fish were more than fresh: highly recommended the grilled seabass which was utterly delicious. Prices are in line with what you get. Extra bonus: uncommonly friendly service.

Description
The Restaurant "O Valentim" is located in the heart of the fishing activity of Matosinhos and, as it could not fail to be, it’s specialty is serving the freshest grilled fish. With the fishing port located across the street, every day the restaurant receives several species of fresh fish that our professionals brilliantly prepare, highlighting among the most wanted species: seabass, brill, gilthead, sardine and squid.
To begin the meals, we have great starters, among them, the fish soup, the traditional Portuguese soup “Caldo Verde”, the clams, the shrimps and the petinga.
To finish the meals in beauty, we offer a wide range of desserts made by us, among them, crème brûlée, pudding, passion fruit pie and brigadeiro.
Concerning wines, we count with a quality selection where the best wines of our country are present.
