Boa Nova Tea House

Gastronomy in Porto

Designed by Portuguese architect titan Álvaro Siza Vieira and with star chef Rui Paula at the helm, this Michelin-starred restaurant perches alluringly on rocks above the crashing Atlantic. Massive boulders frame the white, low-rise building. The ingredients-driven tasting menus go with the seasons, but might include, say, monkfish with hazelnut and Champagne or Trás-os-Montes kid goat roasted to perfection.

Wine pairings are available for an extra €90 per head and, given the quality of the cellar, are worth considering. The restaurant is 20 minutes north of Porto along the coast. It’s best reached by car or taxi.
