Restaurante Baliza

Reviewed By KathleenR_28 - Port Dover, Canada

It was about mid-afternoon and we were looking for a restaurant. Many of the restaurants seemed to be closed for the rest of the day.
We found Restaurante Baliza and when I saw the TripAdvisor excellence certificate, I recommended we try it although it seemed they were just winding down from a busy lunch period and staff were getting ready to have their lunch. But they all came to attention when we went in and sat down. Even the couple who I assumed to be the owners stopped eating and took care of our group.
I ordered the seafood rice and soup and I was not disappointed. I found the dishes tasty. My friends ordered some pork and chicken dishes and they, too, were satisfied.

A Cabana

Reviewed By IsabelMNSS

"CABANA" has a long
existence and its greatest value is that it maintains a very high quality and service level over 30 years now. It lays nearby Espinho's seafront and has an amazing view. Its interior although a bit old maintains its cozyness and is appealing to customers. Its high quality level and customer relationship maintains very long term customer connections which is not easy to find and maintain in this day and age! The food is superb! Highly recommend it but one is advised to book beforehand since at times it is fully booked for weekends or dinners.

Terminal 8

Reviewed By patchycat - Manchester, United Kingdom

Holidayed in Espinho for 10 years! First time we have eaten here!!! Sad, we have missed out. It should be number two or three. The pork tenderloin was superb.
For those of us who have not learned basic Portuguese, the menu is in English, the staff speak English ( we must
Learn some ) and they are as friendly as everyone we have met in Espinho.
Whoever paid silly money for 4 rhums wants shooting, the croft brandy is 2.5 euros, the coffee is average price.
Really a superb meal at a very reasonable price ( by Portuguese standards, not uk rip offs ) coupled with good service with a smile!
We will return tomorrow, sadly our last night this year, and try something different.
If you are in Espinho and try Terminal 8' you will NOT be disappointed.

O Peixeiro

Reviewed By ThePale - Tours, France

To get to this place was not easy as it was a little difficult to find. We heard about it from a local Portuguese barman.
When we arrived, the restaurant didn't look great, but we went inside anyway...after that, it was one of the best moments of the holiday.
The owner is a Sporting Lisbon fan and the lady who served us spoke perfect french.
She was extremely nice, and showed me all the fresh fish in the kitchen and asked me to choose what we would like.
No menu.....you choose...just perfect.
Served with fresh vegetables and great potatoes.
Excellent wine, not expensive.
Everyone there was Portuguese and there was a great atmosphere, it was like everybody knew everybody.
Nice to be in a real Portuguese place with no tourists for once.
Thank you and Go Sporting.......

Baco.Come

Reviewed By Luis F - Espinho, Portugal

Nice place, food is good and portions are good.
presentation is good. I had the cod with corn bread and the veal and it was good.
The restaurante decor is also good, at least not that typical look of Portugueses restaurants with poor decor. Service was good and fast.

D'Aurora

Reviewed By Graeme16 - Kirkby Lonsdale, United Kingdom

We have dined at D'Auora for quite some years... and returned with a group of friends.
You can not go wrong at this restaurant.
Incredibly fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection. We love the Açorda... which is a very traditional Portuguese dish to use up stale bread... (don't be put off by the sound of that... its wonderful). Seafood rice is amazing.
The meat dishes are also fantastic.
D'Aurora enables you to push the boat out with Lobster... Crab... and Percebes... known to us English as goose head barnacles. in the UK they cost a fortune... and if you saw how they are picked... you will know why. they are a fraction of the cost in Portugal, so if your adventurous.. this is the place to try them.
Hold the base with one hand, twist and pull off the barnacle head with the other and slide off the flesh between your teeth... delicious salty fresh taste of the sea.
wash them down with a glass of Vino Verde.
Also recommended... grilled Lulas, octopus starter & the huge green lipped mussels
Lastly - a quick word about your host...Amadeu is a wonderfully warm and funny guy. Loves his restaurant, loves his customers... loves his job.
D'Aurora is highly recommended... also visit the bar next door!

Restaurante Cantinho Nobre

Reviewed By JoseSM - Porto

I end up in this restaurant by accident and it was a very good surprise. Nice traditional Portuguese food with a good dining room. The kitchen is completely open and immaculate clean. The wine list together with the sympathy of the owner Jose Manuel make this visit worth to repeat. The prices are very cheap.
