The restaurant is a unique combination of elegant and relaxing atmosphere. The choice of main dishes is wide but limited guaranteeing maximum freshness. And it was very tasty! At the same time the extensive wine and beer lists are quite huge and make it hard to choose! We had a Brazilian white wine from the region which was surprisingly good.... More

Went here to meet my wife's friend who recommended the restaurant. We ordered an appetizer and I ordered the Beef with Ravioli. The beef medallions were cooked to perfection and had wonderful seasoning. The Raviolis were made of mushrooms and cheese, toped with a white wine nut sauce. I've never had anything like it before, and it was absolutely great!... More

My issue with Constantino is always the service: countless times I've had issues with the wait staff and have had dishes served cold or problems when ordering. Nonetheless, their food is indeed good, but what really stands out is their' ambiance: the outside area, which has outdoor heating during the winter and is very pleasant during the summer, is full...

As part of a group of 25 one never knows what to expect. Food was excellent as was the atmosphere. There are two outdoor patios that are very nice. The combination of trees, flowers and tables makes for a wonderful ambiance. Had the sesame salmon and dulce de leche gato for dessert.

My wife and I were starting commemorations of our long marriage. Among several alternatives in POA we chose Constantino and were not disappointed. Service was super friendly and attentive. The ambiance and the decor are delightful. Our dishes were delicious from a small menu with several tempting alternatives. They charged us a very reasonable amount to serve the wine we... More

This was my 4th visit to Constantinople over the last 2 years and the quality has been consistently high. You don't see much from the street but there is a beautiful garden courtyard which is quiet and nice for a business dinner.

This restaurant serves delicious and creative dishes. It is located in a charming old house with a very expansive tastefully arranged patio. There are tables for large groups and even a little private gazebo for couples. Ideal for business or date nights. Seems to be a favorite for the well-to-do locals.

This is a charming mostly-outdoor restaurant. The atmosphere is fantastic, the food was exceptional, and the service was very good. I had a fantastic salad of rocket with roast beef, and a piece of perfectly cooked salmon. All in all, this was a relaxing, delicious, and fun meal.

I was here with a group of friends and everyone really enjoyed their food but we had terrible problems with the service. Most of us received our drinks after the food despite having ordered it before and this was the case even after complaining several times that the drink still hadn't arrived. But if you don't want anything to drink... More

Description
Constantino Cafe provides since 2005 the best combination of Mediterranean restaurants and Parisian cafes. The ambiance is cozy and the mood is young and laidback. There is an external deck, located in front of the place, and tables on the sidewalk, great to watch the movement of the charming neighborhood and the leafy jacarandas of the traditional Fernando Gomes Street. Inside, a comfortable acclimatized salon and the beautiful garden with outdoor tables are a delicious option. As for the gazebo, a beautiful fireplace accompanies the South's cold winter. The menu is a la carte. At lunch, the dishes have a homey touch; at dinner, special contemporary recipes take over. To complement the meal, the cellar is acclimatized and offers over 100 classic and modern labels from different regions of the world. Among the drinks, another good option is the Stella Artois draft beer — or the special beers.
