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

We shared a Reuben-like Francesinha sandwich that was to die for. And if we had any sort of hypertension or cholesterol problems, it probably would have. It was delicious, as was the other food. Plus nice big coffees and teas. A great place to stop for brunch.

It is a spacious café , beautifully decorated with stunning exotic paintings by the Portuguese artist Gtaça Morais. The service is excellent and the stuff really friendly and helpful , as most people in... More

Beautiful restaurant, very elegant and impressive, including a tuxedoed Maitre Dei ... but - Prices are extremely high and the waiters SNOOTY. Took almost 20 minutes to get a check and then another 10 minutes to pay the bill. Look for some of the smaller local places for better deals and treatment. Try ZAZA Restaurant - right next to Hotel... More
