Lunch or dinner the best. Arrived here today and had such a magnificent lunch we returned for dinner.
Dinner was a lovely house wine at €7 and followed by grilled sardines and chicken with salad and vegetables.
Lovely friendly staff who will cater for your needs. English speaking.

Enjoyed a decently priced pilgrim’s lunch at this small restaurant around the cathedral in old fort in Valenca. Included soup, chicken, rice, fries, dessert and coffee. Tasty? Not so much. Perhaps readers should check what others have said about the codfish, which is a house specialty. Friendly and helpful service.

Within the fort wall of Valença you can find lots of restaurants and shops, Solar do Bacalhou focuses in Codfish and is a great place to try all sorts of dishes the Portuguese cousine has to offer. A must try.
The service was very nice and even though we were received at a late hour the waiter was very nice.

Lovely restaurant specialising in cod. Recommend the house version of salted cod - probably to share as it's huge. Flaked cod and eggs was something I'd never tried before - just superb. Amazing breads too.

Had lunch here with friends. Two main courses of fish - sardines were excellent. Two mains of pork and chicken were no better than average. Splendid starters of octopus. Spacious upstairs dining room not apparent from somewhat cramped downstairs bar area.
