Vila Foz Restaurant or the Ultimate Experience of the Palate

An experience. A sublime journey to the delicate world of flavors, textures and contrasts. At the Vila Foz Restaurant, the cuisine is based on Chef Arnaldo Azevedo's passion for the art of placing perfection in each single dish.


On the first line of the sea, in the heart of Foz do Porto, the Vila Foz Restaurant offers a signature cuisine inspired by the proximity of the Atlantic. Vila Foz's menu is an ode to our sea, a celebration of the fish and seafood of our coast, the elevation of its quality, freshness and intensity.

Imbued with an enormous respect for local culture and for the foundations of traditional Portuguese cuisine, Chef Arnaldo Azevedo interprets the products he works with. With creativity and boldness, he understands the essence of the local and seasonal products that arrive at his kitchen and turns them into gastronomic experiences that evoke memories of the region, the country and even the world.

With a fine dining concept, Vila Foz offers Tasting Menus, in addition to à la carte suggestions, with the Chef's unavoidable classics.

Breaking Wave, Sea Air and New World are the names of the proposed Menus, a degustation experience of various dishes, in which each moment represents both the beginning and the culmination of a journey.

The New World is a Menu for those who decided to opt for an exclusively vegan gastronomy, a succession of creative, colorful and fully flavored dishes with the very best that comes from the land.

The Wine List is very complete and diverse, with more than 200 entries. Portuguese Wines stand out, although it also includes an excellent selection of Wines of the World. Equally noteworthy is the offer of Dessert Wines, with a wide range of options including Port Wines, Madeira Wines, Moscatel de Setúbal and Late Harvest. With a dedicated and irreproachable service, the team led by Adácio Ribeiro also counts with the sommelier Gabriel Monteiro, always available to suggest the right harmonization for your choices. Attesting to the excellence of this service, in the year 2020, the Vila Foz Restaurant was distinguished as “Restaurant with Best Wine Service” by the prestigious Revista de Vinhos (Wine Magazine), of the Essência do Vinho group. This recognition takes place within the scope of the “The Best of the Year 2020” initiative.

On a distinct note, the Vila Foz Restaurant also offers a unique and exclusive experience for two, the Kitchen Seat. At the bar counter and with a privileged view of the Vila Foz kitchen, you will have the opportunity to have Chef Arnaldo Azevedo cooking only for you. With an engagement resulting from such proximity, the Chef will offer you a surprise Tasting Menu, beautifully harmonized with the best wines.

The sea on the horizon, an idyllic setting, the perfect location. On the most prestigious avenue of the city of Porto, in the grand hall of a magnificent Manor House from the end of the 19th century, the Vila Foz Restaurant opens its doors from Tuesday to Saturday, just for dinner, between 19h30 and 22h30.
