Nice view

Porto is a lovely city, for me was much kinder as Lisboa. The bridges, the city and everything are really attractive and amazing.

If you expect overwhelming attention then don't go there. You can drink port wine in fancy hotels also. If you are in learning and you do not have an attitude problem, then this is your place. I was there probably 5 years ago and i still remember it like yesterday. Place was quite empty (probably there are lots of better... More

The waiters are harsh, not very helpful and not very friendly. We went because it was on the tour route we had chosen and wanted to try port. We couldn't find anywhere else. Recommend somewhere else if you find a place but if not go here and be prepared to be served with a frown. But hey! Your not going... More

Do not go here!! The staff was incredibly rude, we did not feel welcome at all. At one point we even felt that they just wanted us to go away, the were giving us angry looks and even pointing, no idea why. It's a shame because the place is actually quite nice, but all in all a bad experience. Staff... More

Went there to try some port and though reviews weren't great it seemed our best option. Atmosphere was sterile, waiters ok but don't seem to have any enthusiasm for their product and the port list is very short - only one Ruby! We went on afterwards to a bar called 'Grapes and Bites' which had a much longer port list... More

During our stay in Porto we stoped at Solar Vinho do Porto which is a good place to watch Sunset and enjoy a port wine!

Check that it is open before you go! We took a taxi here only to discover a sign on the door saying it was temporarily closed.

First of all, the Solar do Vinho do Porto is the perfect place to experiment Oporto wine. There are several brands you can taste there and you can even try vintages and LBV (Late Bottled Vintage). BUT, if you are not a Oporto wine lover, you can relax in the garden or simply admire the beautiful Oporto landscape. A place... More
