Visited here for lunch and after being seated waited 15 minutes before we saw anyone again. When we finally got to place our order the food was very good I had the pork in mustard sauce which was lovely. Also had to wait another 10 minutes to receive our bill

We recently visited chez Lapin for an evening meal. We had a fantastic meal which was recommended to us by a very good waiter. The restaurant itself was really nicely decorated and the meal itself was delicious. The waiter was very experienced and certainly knew what he was doing and talking about. A lovely place that we would definitely visit... More

The location of this Cais da Ribeira restaurant is perfect ,right on the riverfront. Its not as touristy as some of the other restaurants in this area. The food is excellent, we had "Bacalhau com natas e Gambos" and beef medallions with potatoes. Very traditional Portuguese dishes accompanied by some lovely local Port! Our waitress Ana was so helpful and... More

Great traditional food with a cosy atmosphere inside and great views outside! Love the "filetes de polvo" tender fresh inside and crispy outside. Super professional staff, Inside heating would have been good but I guess wine warms you up :) also dessert is homemade.

Very charming design, right by the river, attentive staff. Soup was delicious! Full disclosure: I have no idea what the price was like, since we ate there as a part of a half-day tour, so it was paid for.

This restaurant has an amazing decoration ad view to the river (the best things about it probably) but food wise is too expensive for the portions served and the quality of the food. Our fried potatos, that came with the chicken looked like they were made in over used oil, were super fried. The lettuce didn´t look fresh.

Located right on the water this is the quintessential tourist trap- high prices, OK food, great location and excellent people watching. Good for a snack or drink, but go off the beaten path a little more for better food for your money.
