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

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
