I am always very skeptical of restaurants in tourist areas as most seem to over-charge and underwhelm. We arrived at around 9 PM on a Friday night and the restaurant was extremely busy and packed. We sat outside as the weather was nice and the inside had no tables available. The view of the square was also nice. We were... More

Although this is a very touristy place (not so many Portuguese people come her) we enjoyed our dinner during a Cuban-music-Night at the Cafe Guarany. Wall paintings are great, service is good, although the food we were served was not as described on the menu.

Since it is quite likely that a visitor to Porto will be visiting the impressive Avenida dos Aliados, a kind of reduced imitation of the Champs Elysees on a small scale, it makes sense to take a break for a drink or bite to eat at the Cafe Guarany. The restaurant looks quite impressive, with white table cloths, outside and... More

I stopped off at Guarany and Majestic on the same night and both were wonderful experiences. Out of the two I have to say I favoured Cafe Guarany. This was because it was a bit more open and they had a pianist playing which gave it a wonderful atmosphere. Three of the group had coffee and the other member had... More

Ate here twice, once inside and once outside. Quality of food excellent, service good and amazing value for money. Try the glass of port suggested for your particular dish - it will double your enjoyment!

We went one evening, were pleased with everything so we decided to come back for a fado evening as well. We were not disappointed by anything. Being served in French was not what we were expecting in Porto! Thank you we did appreciate it!

My last day in Porto and I wanted to enjoy more than a cheap and cheerful budget meal. I found recommendations for this restaurant - it is apparently owned by the Majestic Cafe proprietors - they do have their brand on the umbrellas sheltering the outdoor tables, which I avoided because by now I have had my lungs filled with...

We started at an outside table but moved inside due to smoke and noise. They offer a daily special --- meat, potato and salad that changes every day. We had beef sauteed in olive oil and garlic and home made potato chips. The meal was absolutely wonderful. The service was good, the atmosphere very nice and two lunch specials and... More

This restaurant was introduced by hotel staff and it definitely was a great one! You can order anything and you never miss it. You can take a baby (big baby seat prepared) and open cafe seating is wonderful if it's a sunny day.

I can only speak to the dessert here, but what we had was fantastic. After having dinner at a nearby restaurant, we stopped here for dessert on our way back to our hotel. We were promptly greeted by one of the well dressed staff and politely offered a table, menus, and his services if we had any questions. We had... More
