By the Douro, in the Ribeira neighbourhood, the hotel Pestana Vintage's restaurant has chosen to stand out. The Rib Beef & Wine is the only place in town offering 'protected designation of origin' meat dishes with rich sauces, quite different from the culinary traditions usually found in Porto. On the menu, you will find the “traditional” beef cut with coriander, eggs, meat croquetes and onion sauce, or beef cheeks with a potato mousseline. What matters most is the cut and the cooking of the meat, thought out to pay tribute to the quality of the product in itself.
You can choose among various sides - beans, rice or turnip green compote - and of course tomato and candied onions, as well as port wine served with every dish. Vegetarians, fear not, the restaurant also offers 'cool alternatives': salads and vegetables in vinegar, tomato soup and soft-boiled egg…
