We went there since we read some positive reviews about this restaurant, but it did not meet our expectations. Yes, the location is very good, the view is pefect and very romantic. But the food is average when we think about the other meals we had in Lisbon. Also the prices were high considering the size of plates. And they... More

Our best dining experience in Porto...we were in the traditional Porto side restaurant not the modern Gaia one immediately across the river. Every thing was great from the location (sit outside for river and people watching!!) to the very helpful waitress's recommendations for food and wine. The Burmester (tastings just at the Gaia end of the bridge) white port and... More

The first thing that impressed us here was the professionalism of the staff.Attentive but not intrusive.Main meals of steak and hake were cooked to perfection and although i cant recall the bill we thought it very reasonable.The view helps as well.

Great location overlooking the Douro River. Outdoor/indoor seating. Enjoyed jamon to start. My partner ordered the pork with clams/picante and I had the hake, lightly breaded with cold potatoes/veggie salad. Great wine choice of Burmester Branco. Great service. Total price with wine: 58E. Food okay, but the location is wonderful.

As recommended by our Sheraton Porto hotel, we went to D. Tonho for dinner The service was outstanding and the food was equally excellent. We had the most delicious octopus salad followed by two delectable fish dinners. We loved the wine that the waiter helped us select and enjoyed every aspect of our dinner.

Don Tonho has a place on the 'other' Riverside, Well known as Gaia. We asked the people of the bureau of tourism to make our reservation. We got a table by the Riverside...the darker it got, the more breathtaking the view was! Very, very, very beautiful! The service was more than suberb. The girls who served us went out of... More

D. Tonho is one of most well-known restaurants at Cais da Ribeira. I had dinner there last October and enjoyed the food, the wine and the general atmosphere. I got a table as near as possible of the beautiful Douro River, almost under the unforgettable D. Luís I Bridge, and left the breeze inspire my mind, soul and taste. I... More

This a highly recomended to me for my friends, but for my personal experience unfortunately i cannot recomended. The bread was terrible, olive oil the worst that i have in Portugal, the fish was good, sardinhas was nice but not exceptional, so the restaurant is a perfect trap for the tourist. The excelent loacalization that was enough to return there.

A party of four of us had our New Years Eve dinner at this resturant. I can honestly say it was the worst meal the four of us had in Porto. From the moment we arrived the staff was rude and unhelpful. They told me I did not have a reservation and I did. When he finnaly found it he... More

We have been to this restaurant 5 times in 5 years. All previous visits were excellent - good food, attentive staff, nice atmosphere but this time we have come away bitterly disappointed. Here in Portugal and Spain it is a busy holiday weekend yet at Don Tonho there were only 3 waiting-on staff. We arrived at around 8pm this evening... More
