A great find on Rua de Alegria, just a few steps from our rental apartment! Homemade food in a simple setting. A must.

The place was almost full and the waiter wasn't nice at all saying that it would take too long to have a table, basically sending us away. Even though we decided to stay and the food was very good and the prices ok for the good quality. Good selection of different steaks ready to be grilled. Octopus rice was very... More

We were staying at the hotel across the street and after a full day of walking and port tasting, we did not want to venture far on a chilly evening. So for 22 Euros, we shared a salad, had water and wine , the alheira sausage entree and the salmon special of the day. No room to have dessert. So... More

Solar da Alegria Restaurant is the best homemade food in Porto. Try the incredible grilled octopus, dourada, tuger shrimp, and the filet mignon.....

The food was good and the local wine was nice and reasonably priced. As seems... More

We made a note of the location and have just returned from an amazing dinner there. This restaurant would rate in the upper echelon where I live in Canada. Unfortunately, it is off the beaten path in Porto. Visitors seem to... More

Very close to the Tryp Porto Centro Hotel. Friendly and efficient staff, English was limited. Servings were generous and good value for money. Enjoyed the food, best dish on the day was a local fish.
