Good place but average food

This was our first meal in Porto, the restaurant is well decorated, the servers are really kind, and our server can speak French so it was easy for us to communicate. As for the food we ordered a entrée of sausage rolls, it was good at first but then we found that it was too salty. And for the... read more

This restaurant, right on the Douro in Porto, was recommended by our host at our B&B and it did not disappoint. We were greeted by a young waiter who served us fir the evening and made it even better. We had different entrees so he brought half bottles of wine for us. The bill was just over 40 euros for...

For 3 we had one onion soup and one novilho al oporto each plus desert and one ottle of quinta do carmo wine for 110. Perhaps a bit more of salt would be good. Tasty food.

Rusttic and tasteful local food, interesting setting (we were sitting inside), central location, very helpful staff. Worth visiting, but do not expect any luxury. Hint : portions are quite big, consider sharing - it's common practice.

Tasteful food, good choice of wines, central location at Ribeira section not far from the river, unusual decoration - yes, there's a live rabbit in a cage. No luxury, service small toilets on 1st floor. Take your time, service is friendly but not very fast, especially at lunch.

There weren't many places open on December 25, we found this one and we gave it a shot without looking at the menu before. The place is cozy and the waiters were very polite, speaking English and Spanish at least. We thought the food was a little more expensive than other places we've been to, but since there weren't many... More

We went to Chez Lapin as it had fire heaters outside and shelter from the rain but after ordering, i wish i'd picked another restaurant along the same strip. The heater died on us and so after explaining that to our waiter (who didn't seem to understand anything we were saying), we spoke to another waiter (lovely guy) who relocated... More

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
