Casa de Cha
Casa de Cha is probably one the most beautiful restaurants in Portugal with a stunning view. This restaurant is perched on the seafront in Matoshinos, an area in the north of Porto, but once we sat inside, it seemed that we were in another world.
Casa de Cha is home to one of the stars of the Portuguese cuisine: Rui Paula.
For our dinner on Saturday July 18th, 2021, first we had to show our sanitary pass stating that we were fully vaccinated in order to be let in the restaurant.
Once seated, we were able to discover the incredible view over the ocean. Our maître d'hôte, Igor rapidly took care of us, explained to us how we could choose the menu, and how many dishes we wished to eat. We all went for six and then the chef decided which ones, in order for us to have the best culinary experience.
All the dishes served were very good, tasty, and well cooked, from Oyster/Tuna to Crawfish/Korean Soup except… for the Scallop/Tapioca. The scallop was overcooked, and the presentation was not well conceived. In our opinion, the tapioca had no place in there and its texture did not add anything to the rest. We mentioned that to Rui Paul who came to see if everything had been OK for us at the end of our meal. The chef’s reaction was immediate: he took Little Boboon to his kitchen and introduced me to his sous-chef, asking me to tell her myself why we did not like the Scallop/Tapioca dish.
The wine list is amazing, as it should be in a two-Michelin star restaurant. The offer “by the glass” is huge and affordable. We had a Murganheira “Blanc de Noirs” 2010 which was excellent.
The service by Igor was impeccable, nice, warm and welcoming.
As we always mention throughout our travel experiences and critics, a two or three-Michelin star restaurant should be a perfect experience in every way. Overall, our experience at Casa de Cha was pretty nice: stunning view, great wine, nice service, and the food was good. Some dishes even very good but not outstanding, which was what we actually expected from such a renowned chef with two Michelin stars.
