Foz Velha restaurant: The Original Seafood And Steakhouse On The Riverfront
This rustic venue has been a fixture on the Douro waterfront near old Porto for quite some time now. A significant number of current rising star chefs in other venues across Europe can list it in their resumes. The current chef in residence, Marco Gomes, is another legend in the making and the reason that this Porto restaurant remains so popular to this day.
Dining at the Foz Velha restaurant is a cozy experience filled with all kinds of good, solid comfort food. Traditional Portuguese dishes, grilled steaks and seafood, and more wines than the average venues in the region can boast. Being so close to the water does have its advantages, especially when so many of the most profitable wine merchants share this vantage point, as well as the many commercial fishing fleets.
Like so many other Porto restaurant venues, the Foz Velha restaurant offers several menus for you to choose from, for both lunch and dinner. The tasting menus vary in size and it might be best to consider ordering more than one entrée to share, as the portions are quite large. Fresh seafood entries on the menus will change from day to day, but the mainstay steaks are always available. They also have a wonderful selection of salads and pastas for those seeking a lighter fare.
