Abadia do Porto

Abadia Do Porto is one of the oldest restaurants of Porto. I asked a few locals and everyone recommended it and described it as the go-to place for food for families on special occasions. Another gentleman told me he has been visiting for decades and never felt the taste change so after a walking tour of Porto I headed there for a brunch to check out this exciting place.

Booking: This is a mammoth of a restaurant with multiple floors so space is not an issue but it can get quite busy in the evenings and weekends so I’d recommend booking in advance.

Interior and Ambiance:

Its quite a spacious restaurant and brings quite a local homely feeling to it. The staff was quite friendly and the interior was cosy despite being a massive place.

Food:

The menu has a good variety of local food with good seafood, meat and chicken options. I didn’t pay much attention to vegetables (like you do!).

Starter:

Startyer platter with bread, olives and grilled octopus – The selection of breads is interesting with the corn bread being very delicious due to its texture. Grilled Octopus made it just better. A dash of olive oil and olives made the whole thing worked awesome.

Main:

Roast Goat – This is a traditional dish from Porto and despite my love for goat meat, I found this one to be slightly more lemony than I would like. Rice did make it better though. Meat was quite tender and amazing.

Things to love: Food, Location

Negatives: Only traditional food
