I have eaten here a few times and always enjoyed it. The staff have always been very friendly to me, but I always take time to speak to the waiting staff, I have seen people here be very rude to the staff and not having such a great experience, but those people probably walk away saying the staff were rude!...

Well, it is what it is. A tourist restaurant on the Douro. Everything we had here, aside from the wine, was really bad. Fish soup seemingly made of powdered concentrate, half-assed version of French onion soup (both not very warm when served), the shrimp cocktail is soaked in what appears to be a mixture of ketchup and mayo, and then...

Very nice location next to the Douro river. Reasonable price and excellent foods. Very generous with the wine.

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.

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!
