Fodor's Expert Review Casa d'Armas

$$ Viana do Castelo Seafood

In a renovated mansion near the waterfront, this eatery is a prime destination for seafood: start with fish soup and continue with main dishes such as sapateira recheada (stuffed crab), polvo com azeite e alho (octopus with olive oil and garlic), or arroz de tamboril (monkfish rice). The house bacalhau is rather unusual: it's fried and stuffed with bacon.
