Nice dinner at the terrace. The food was perfect, and the service good enough. The price may be a bit high, but you pay for a nice view of the Ribeira! It is an interesting site if you intend to visit Porto!!

This was recommended by our hotel as the best cod in town. Disappointed, to say the least. The oven baked cod tasted great on the first bite, but then the salt hit, and the entire fish was massively too salty. My wife ordered a different...More
