This riverside restaurant was the perfect place for lunch on a very hot day. And then we saw the menu of amazing fish dishes. We chose a Mixed Fish dish which had over six fish types each for only 37 Euro for two people - delicious and excellent value when washed down by a bottle of Vino Verde. Perfect setting... More

This restaurant looked so good with its terrace out along the Douro embankment. Comfortable seating and clean linen cloths.Shame the food did not match the same quality. As a main course we ordered grilled prawns, oops sorry they are off the menu, so we plumbed for the monk fish. We received swordfish steaks which we do not like. On querying... More

Dropped in for lunch just after our arrival in Porto. My travel partners craved for some "genuine bacalhau". The place was pretty crowded, but the service went rather smoothly. To me it was a positive surprise when the waiter came up with several vegetarian options (not on the menu), when he learned I was not a carnivore. Even though he... More

Decent food, good portions, but they brought us a wine we didn't ask for and charged us full price, of course... Make sure you understand what they are bringing to your table and that it actually is what you asked for... I would go somewhere else.

I've read with interest some of the unsatisfied customers, we must have been lucky on the day as we found the opposite to what we've read. The young waiter was extremely efficient and courteous, spoke English, helped us to pick a wine to our satisfaction. The food was tasty and fresh , the views alongside the river and the atmosphere...

Very tasty and cheap food. You can eat here a sea food, pork, veal and fishes. Almost all prices are under 10 euro. And you need to try the house wine - 10 euro for a bottle !

We chose this restaurant because of a specific dish that was being served here (according to the menu anyway). As we sat down a waiter placed a basket on the table with two pieces of bread and some small appetizers (tinned tuna and sardine paste & 2 small cheeses). He did not speak to us at all and didn't mention... More

It was quite a disappointing experience. We went to eat here with my boyfriend at our first night in Porto. The atmosphere was ok, but the food was sooooo bad. We ordered chicken for my boyfriend and francezigna for me. Chicken was so incredibly dry and french fries were totally not appetizing and tasted like paper. My francezigna was also... More
