I had a good meal but nothing extraordinary at all. The English waiter was super friendly and excellent- the only big plus about the place in fact but not enough to make it worth a visit. I went at lunch time, it lacked ambiance, a few other tables with tourists. That was my only meal in Porto; I feel a... More

My wife had the sea bass, fresh , tender and tasty! I had the octopus main, tender and great tasting. Reasonable prices for good quality food! The location is a little off the beaten track but worth it.

If you want to have a very good and typical portuguese dinner, don't hesitate to walk among the river no so far to down town. Cod, octopus and other fishes are fresh and delicious. And people friendly

Just had dinner with a colleague on a Sunday evening. Went on spec and were lucky to get the last table. When you walk in there are 3 tables and a view into the kitchen - I wondered where the rest was?? It's upstairs! We were recommended to try some of the local black pudding as a starter to share...

My wife and I dropped in for dinner recently. At 7:30pm we were a little early; the local people seemed to come in shortly before 8:00 until 8:30ish. We were met and seated by a kind gentleman who also served our dinner. The meals were very good, and the service was excellent.

Thank RobD278
