Very calm place to stay walking , enjoy the view of the Douro and the wine cellars of Porto on the other side ( Vila Nova de Gaia ) . Great restaurants and bars the river. Good place to go for a bike ride or walk along the Douro river. Place safe and clean .

Bad food. Noisy and somewhat over rated. You must be very careful when selecting a restaurant. The spread in quality and price is huge. It is a good walk though with a good view. The back streets are nice also. Better and cheaper restaurants with less noise and less view.

A place not to be missed. Thriving and throbbing with great restaurants, street vendors with handmade jewelry, linens and things. Best visited at sunset for dinner and drinks to fully enjoy the ambience, views and people watching. We really enjoyed walking around, shopping and dining in this area. Do not miss this on your visit to Porto, Portugal.

on the edge of the douro (you can get to it from 'upper town' by means of the funicular) a whole series of medium quality restaurants, bars, and other places to spend time and enjoy reasonable food while watching the douro flow by. very pleasant place to spend some time.

Interesting with its many restaurants and shops - not only to buy souvenirs but to have a glimpse of the local artcraft. Good to sit at one of the nice places and savor a drink made of white porto, on a hot day...

Sure the Ribeira is touristy and sure the cafes and restaurants are on the expensive side and serve up pretty ordinary fodder, but there is a lot of character and vitality here that you would be mad to miss if visiting Porto. It is still a wonderful area just to wander around, soak up the history, admire the views across... More

the Ribeiro area is really very, very atmospheric. The coffee bars, restaurants, and view across to Vila Nova Guia are stunning.

Nice place to drink a beer, or even better, a Porto wine and seeing the sun. At nice also cool to walk around but when is empty is not as good.

So much to see and some very nice wine bars hidden away. It was so romantic. The lighting around the river at any time of night is perfect. The place comes to life at night. Places to eat and drink seem to close about 11pm.
