From two visits in the last 3 months, both were happy and memorable experiences. This little gem among the more tourist trap appearences close to the river does not bear it's name in vain. At the first visit we started with mussels and then the signature dish oven-baked Rabbit, both were delicious, wild rabbits not on every menu one looks... More

A lovely atmosphere at this restaurant, we sat outside so we could people watch and have a view over the river as well as the lights of all the port houses and old monastery. There were different rooms to sit in though if you didn't want to be outside as it did get a little chilly! We started with mussels... More

Never have I eaten a Vegetable soup that was better than my own mothers. This restaurant proved me wrong! Delicious food, amazing service and intriguing decor to go with it. Honestly, what better than to have dinner with your other half with a good glass of wine facing the alluring Ribeira and scenery? Loved it so much, unfortunately last time... More

But it is in the prime spot in a tourist city, right on the river front with stunning views . Busy on a Sunday evening when many other places were quiet. Service surprisingly good and food a pleasant surprise with good fresh sole and a tasty veal in port. Portions are big but you don't get a funny look when... More

This is one of those restaurants we will always remember. Completely over the top with a massive collection of ornaments and amusing artefacts. Warm, cosy, busy and friendly. We were impressed with the excellent service we received as all areas were so busy. Great for people watching. The food was fabulous. Try the rabbit and don't miss the prawns in... More

We had the "Menu Touristique" as part of our holiday package, for which the restaurant had not been forearmed! Nevertheless the pleasant waiter asked for sight of our documentation, got us to fill in a form so that he could claim reimbursement, and proceeded with normal service. As for the food: (a) Vegetable soup was mainly potato; (b) Pork &... More

We stayed for 3 nights in Porto and one night went wandering along the river front where many restaurants and bars were to be found. There are musicians playing outside who play some songs, collect any tips and then move on. We didn't like the music outside one restaurant so walked further along where it was quieter and arrive at... More

The location and the view nice, right on the river. We started with salad and soups and other starters, they were very good. We ordered rabbit for main dish, and that was dry. We thought, they would do it well, but they did not. Some other dishes may seem better. It is an OK touristic restaurant worth giving it a... More
