In response to the inquiry put to me, it is difficult to choose just one restaurant in the city of Porto and considering my new functions, let me at least indicate some of the neighboring counties. It is important to mention that the North of Portugal has hundreds of good restaurants, proof of this are the many awards won by our restaurants and Chefs, including the prestigious award of Michelin Stars.
In Porto, for regional gastronomy, without a doubt the “Cozinha do Martrinho”. In another, more contemporary aspect, the “DOP”, the “Muda” o “Reitor” and the “Xico Quijo”.
In Vila Nova de Gaia the “Zé da Serra” and “Ar de Rio”, in the latter one can enjoy the best view of the city of Porto.
In Matosinhos, also for regional gastronomy, “O Gaveto” and “A Marisqueira de Matosinhos”, among dozens of other excellent restaurants of this county.
