Lovely place with a terrace and everyting just happening on the boulevard. The food is abundant, enough local specialities, decently priced and good service. Although known as one of the better knowwn places and in the middle of the tourism district, the prices are fair and you can have dinner and drinks for 2 for some 50 euro. Recommended !

The place is really particular and the food is quite good. Quality/Price ratio is quite good. The restaurant is always fool thus you can find it just a little bit caotic. Recommended

I have just had my best meal in Porto, this restaurant is located on the river bank on the old Porto side of the river near to the bridge that takes the team over the river. The last time I had shrimp prepared this way was in a 4 star restaurant in Paris. I then tried the steak and agin... More

It was a lovely day, the river front was busy but when we arrived we found our table wasn't ready, so we had a drink in the bar next door, 30 minutes later we saw the staff giving our, now cleared...

Usually I run away from restaurants located on touristic routes but Chez Lapin was an exception. We wanted to try some seafood so we took the swordfish and the sea bass. The fish was cooked beautifully but the potatoes were a little bit on the too crispy side. The restaurant was full of touriststhe service wasnt very fast but we... More

despite of the location on a touristic zone, this restaurant will surprise you with the quality of food and service. waiters are gorgeous, but not all of them english-speaking. no menu in russian, so there are no russians at all!!!:) it's a plus! desserts are delicious as well!

We visit this restaurant everytime we are in Porto and my husband who is a local finds the food very well-cooked and authentic. The restaurant is right by the river, with lovely views. The waiting staff are quite helpful too. Each time, the food has been consistently high quality and the price is really reasonable.

A nice place and a splendid view of River Douro were spoiled by the unfriendly service and the terrible food. We had pastas and duck rice that could not be worse. Avoid.
