We asked for the pastries, sandwiches, apple salad and tempura, everything awesome. But the best part was the service, with the waitress Goreti treating us like family, singing and showing the true spirit of this city at its best.

This was the first place we visited in Oporto and what a way to start! It is a quaint little restaurant right on the water with AMAZING food and drink. Prices are extremely reasonable as well. The owner is friendly and really makes you feel welcome. They speak English here too :)

We stopped here for the last meal of our trip. This is a cute portuguese tavern with great beer, a nice wine list and lots of tapas. We shared a bunch of dishes and loved the mushroom/bean stew, and the french fries are amazing!

We ordered mussels and shrimps for starter which were both good. For main dish I had an octopus which was good as well. My girlfriend had a sirloin steak which was not worth the money.

We had our lunch at taberninha this March. We went there due to the high reviews. But unfortunately the experience was not good enough to give a good rating. The food was OK. Nothing exceptional. The servers were just a bit short of being rude. We had doubts on whether what we ordered and what we received were the same.... More

Typical portuguese food is a very cosy environment. Staff is friendly and food is tasty. We recommend pastel de bacalhau and chourico assado.

Wonderful find. We needed a place to eat on our first night in Porto and after a bit of research we stumbled on this place...very glad we did as it was delicious so much so that we ate here twice on this trip. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, the service was just right and the food was amazing (6... More

Popped in here whilst visiting the port wine warehouses. Stopped only for a drink. The drought beer was very good. Quite popular despite being late afternoon.
