Had lovely fresh fish for lunch. Starter was so big, almost could not make desert - but a lovely meal with good wine list.

Mindblowing octopus and very Good steak. Nice atmosphere, because of the fireplace, where we were lucky to be seated. Very polite and friendly service. Also big portion and decent prices. If I come back some day to Porto I will visit them again.

We were recommended to this place by our hotel. The restaurant wasn't too busy except for one table of very noisy diners. We were ignored most of the evening, it took an hour to be served a bowl of unseasoned soup then after some time...More

Took the recommendation of the hotel and went to this restaurant for dinner. Love the decoration of the restaurant and waiters and waitresses are all very friendly. I ordered pan grilled sole with butter sauce, potatoes and vegetables on the side. Unfortunately, the fish is...More
