Good place to stroll leisurely on a sunny day and people watch with a Coffee or beer. Food looked good but we ate elsewhere, plenty of choice.

Quite a pleasant place for a walk during the day or in the evening to get a flavour of the city and a good variety of cafes and restaurants. Don't linger too long reading the menu or you will be encouraged to enter by eager waiters. Streets down to this area are quite steep and many cobbled so it's a... More

I was lucky to find accomodation in the heart of Ribeira and I fell in love with its colours and old buildings. It's Porto's symbol.

Lovely coloured houses next to the river. A lot of bars and restaurants at the riverside, so very touristic. It's nice to walk through and have a drink, but I prefer the less touristic places of Porto to have a more traditional Portuguese dinner.

You can't avoid this area, concentrated cafes bars and restaurants all along the Douro river. Boat trips on the authentic port boats go from this area as well. Views along the river at sunset are superb. Quite touristy so prices are a touch higher but not so much that you'd avoid.

Recommend the Cafe da Caie for good food and drink. Sit indoors or out with a beer or "port & tonic" and watch the sun go down over the river. Excellent for "people watching" and the boats on the river. You are made very welcome, the seats are comfortable. What ever the weather you can enjoy the views in comfort.

Zona Ribeira has a nice boardwalk, lined with restaurants, shops, cafes and boutique stores to fit all budgets. Back streets at various levels are great for leisure walking and exploring. Street side vendors are also present, almost like a flea market. Cruise boats are tied up at the river bank offering day and night cruises. We wanted to do a... More
