We visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We arrived without a reservation but the owner went out of his way to accommodate us the following night despite the restaurant being fully booked. The food and staff were wonderful....try the camembert and potato dish. We had an early seating so were not able to... More

AMAZING food, nice atmosphere! Don't miss the Camembert or the fried squid. We were a bit to early so we didn't hear the live band. But sure that's great too.

We loved our dinner at Rua - we arrived tired, and ready to eat and the staff squeezed us in and we're very friendly. The wine was very nice, but the food was incredible - so delicious and creative.

Must visit when in Porto-great live music, cool design and friendly staff! Found this place by chance and ended up coming back next day as it was so good! We didn't eat here but food looked delicious. Big thanks to Pedro making our short stay in Porto memorable.

If you want to enjoy a bit of the local music scene, swing by here but get your night owl game ready as the music starts after midnight. We popped in around 12:30 and had a blast with the cover band rocking away. I ordered the fruit sangria and after having amazing sangria in Spain, didn't think I'd be impressed... More
