    • Os Lusíadas

      Fresh seafood
      A trip to the picturesque harbour of Matosinhos to the north of Porto is well worth it, if only to visit this truly authentic restaurant.

The catch is delivered to Os Lusíadas directly from the fishing boats moored right in front of the restaurant door, then served up straight onto your plate!

      For night owls
      This is where all of Porto comes together – whatever time of day or night. Located in a former textile factory, the tastefully decorated Galeria de Paris is one of the trendiest venues in the whole city. You will discover a whole host of artwork in the former display cabinets along the walls, and the most eye-catching of all is a small car hanging on the wall. During the daytime the Galeria is a Café-Restaurant, catering for the ravenous or the merely peckish with food and drink; in the evening guests also enjoy a drink on the pavement outside.
