We took our evening meal at Fortaleza and it was a good choice. The ensalada mixta was fresh and flavorful with local tomatoes and onions. While the melon with ham was one of the juiciest and tastiest entrees I have ever enjoyed, the calamari romano reached our table dry, bland, and unimaginably presented. It was clearly sitting around the kitchen for a long time before reaching our table. The staff was very professional and responsive to our needs. Overall, it was a good meal--a five star dinner if we had freshly cooked calamari.

In our way to Porto we made a quick stop for lunch in Fortaleza de Valença. The restaurant is well located and inside the walls of the Fortaleza 1.
We ordered the lubina with vegetables and the Fortaleza Cod fish which comes with fried potatos. Dishes were well served and good portions. Staff was very friendly.

I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised at how good they prepared the bacalhau (dried, salted cod). We ordered the grilled one and once it was served, it didn't last very long. It was well prepared, delicious, and of generous portions. The corn bread they serve was delish, too! I couldn't complain about the price as I thought it was reasonable. I know his will be a place to return to every time I visit Portugal.
