One of may restaurants along the quay. A little touristic but the the atmosphere is nice. We had grilled swordfish. The fish wasn't well grilled, in the middle it was almost raw.

Went there for late lunch, we were 8 people, decided to eat inside. We had a great time. The meal was fantastic, 2 people may be able to share certain meals. We had a taste of different meals ordered. Did not try the lapin (rabbit), but was told is very tasty.Service was good. The owner came by and spent time... More

I’ve been to Porto three times now and every time I’ve begun my stay eating dinner here. With genuine Portuguese dishes served win big to normal sized portions in a great location by the riverside

Decent, but overpriced food. Our waitress went on break midway through the meal. We were left unattended for half an hour, and the total lunch experience took approximately 1.5 hours. The service we did receive was rude: bread was literally thrown on the table. With so many cute restaurants nearby with better views, I would not recommend anybody choose this... More

We started at a Tapas place up the street that was highly recommended but wanted more of a meal. We found the right place. And just before the thunderstorm. We were seated inside the tower. Really cool. Small and cozy. Wait staff was very attentive despite running through the rain to get to us. Food was excellent. Hubby had a... More

We ve been there for our last day in Porto and it really was a nice discover. The waiters advises well about the local food and wines, which were greats, the view might not be spectacular but the place is really nice.

Poor service - late bread - no condiments - uncaring waiter - fried fish came with a bit of salad & raw carrot. No attempt to make either the guests or the food feel special. Looks like a good restaurant but behaves like a cafe. An expensive mistake!

Down by the riverside ( or rather down a small alley just off the main Ribiera). I ordered grilled veal medallions, but when it arrived, it was actually 2 massive fillet steaks. The cost of the dish was less than if I had bought the raw meat in Tesco's, and was delicious. Quite a busy tourist area - but good... More

I only am reiterating previous reviews. What a fantastic little restaurant this is. From the starters to the main course, all were excellent. There were six of us and we had a varied list from the menu. All the meals from the soup to the sausage on the starters board and the steak to the rabbit were of excellent standard.... More

So quaint and authentic! Great location by the river and simple authentic dishes. The rabbit was fantastic. Would definitely return to Porto when visiting Portugal, just to eat here!
