Lonely Planet review
The city's most famous restaurant for bacalao (salt cod), prepared around 25 different ways. If this is your first encounter with this versatile fish, order it al pil-pil (with a mild chilli sauce). Otherwise, you might want to try the pig's trotters filled with cod. The dining room is grandly elegant, with a magnificent grandfather clock and a baffling display cabinet of antique shoes. Reservations recommended.
