A pleasant and tasty lunch, with the lovliest view!

We had a long,lazy, family lunch here. The view is amazing, with a lovely perspective of the bridge. The food was good, with generous portions. The cheese board to share afterwards was very tasty. Service was good, and quite prompt, but we didnt feel rushed.

Arrived in Porto and searched for eateries to avoid the vast number of tourist traps along the Douro waterway, found Dom Tonho a very quiet and unassuming place near the end of the strip of restaurants towards the very popular bridge. The food was excellent, we tried the grilled salmon and tuna and could not fault. starters included cured octopus,... More

We had a really lovely dinner with good service and a nice view on the Douro river. We can recommend the dessert with a good port wine at we end.

This was the Don Tonho on the Porto side of the river, overlooking the path beside the river. We had a great view watching people go by, and enjoying an excellent perch and rice dish for 2. When we first looked for it we missed it as the restaurant is labelled 'DTonho' in italicised script.

D. Tonho is a restaurant right next to the river on the "other" side of Porto. We had lunch there while we were waiting for a tour in one of the port wine cellars which are in the same area. There are plenty of restaurants along the street but most were very busy and seemed like tourist traps (although this... More

This was my first meal whilst in Porto and it was very nice. The view from the upstairs terrace was very picturesque. The service was very good although it was not a busy day. The menu was fairly standard with a nice range of dishes. The pork with clams was very good. I could have eaten two plates. They were... More

A small sidewalk cafe in an elevated spot overlooking the river. Good service, reasonably priced food with good selection. Food similar to many others but good for the price.

Stopped at this restaurant which I think must be an extension in the form of a sort of trailer. The view was fantastic as its over the river and just by the bridge and the large glass windows and outdoor seating are right on the river. The food was lovely and made much better by our waiter Manuel Cardoso who... More

Wonderful location over the river but away from the hectic bustle below, nice outside table, friendly and helpful waitress, very good food -- we had a number of light fish courses -- and a good value wine list. What else do you need?

What a fantastic restaurant on the Douro River in Porto. There is a nice view from both floors and a patio upstairs. The seafood is great and so are the deserts. The service was superb. This restaurant is highly recommended.
