Shis Restaurant is a delightful restaurant located away from the hustle and bustle of Porto city centre, in the beachside area of Foz.
Thanks to its privileged location, Shis offers diners lovely waterfront views out over the Atlantic Ocean, and is the perfect place in which to enjoy a relaxed lunch by the sea or a sophisticated evening meal against the backdrop of the sun setting over the sea.
Just as Shis Restaurant is a fusion of urban chic and laidback holiday charm, the menu is a fusion of dishes from the Mediterranean and Portugal combined with Japanese specialities. Sushi and sashimi feature heavily on the menu, while the very same fish plays a prominent role in recreating some of the more traditional fare with which visitors to Portugal will be familiar with ? albeit with a modern twist for good measure.
The sushi menu is one of the most extensive in Porto ? a city where Japanese cookery is growing in popularity seemingly on a daily basis. Diners can order specific sushi and sashimi dishes or a combination dish offering a variety of different options to provide them with the ultimate tasting experience.
For something with more of a western feel, try the seared tuna salad, grilled skate, pasta with clams or a variety of tasty prawn dishes. The Asian influence is clear in other dishes, such as fish and seaweed soup and miso with clams and tofu. For mains, opt for the Chateaubriand with eggplant tempura and ginger sauce, codfish confit with spring greens, and a rich Serra da Estrela cheese sauce or grilled steak.
Booking is advisable, as this is a popular lunch and dinner spot. If you have the opportunity, ask for a table in the outer corner where you will be treated to panoramic sea views throughout your meal.
For a more relaxed ambience, diners can sit at the sushi bar, though it seems a shame to venture from Porto’s centre to the beach front at Foz and not make the most of the lovely sea views on offer.
Shis Restaurant is open from midday to 1am, seven days a week, for brunch, lunch, snacks, and dinner.
