I came to this restaurant without any information as I was looking somewhere to eat with my girlfriend. Outside I noticed a hotel was above, which made me assume this restaurant was directly associated with the hotel. This made my expectations very high. The prices were very fair.

Been there for dinner, it was ok but nothing special. The staff was ok but also not that good.. No reason to come back here.

I visited this restaurant with friends after lots of research of place to eat in Porto. The restaurant was elegant and the atmosphere was nice.We had Francesinha and it was nice too but a bit overpriced.

We researched for a place that not only had good food, but also traditional Fado music on a Friday night in Porto. We read some great reviews for Cafe Guarany so we were pretty excited. As we arrived, we were greeted warmly, told that there was live music tonight, and shown to a nice clean table. The atmosphere was inviting... More

I visited that restaurant with two friends. I can say I ate here one of the best meals I have ever had in a restaurant. ALL food is of the best quality, perfectly presented on very traditional way. Prices are quite moderate some restaurants of such quality are far more expensive. We visited this superb place several times. Once there... More

We had afternoon tea at Cafe Guarany. It's very Ritz like and the service is good. Prices are very reasonable for such a flashy cafe.

Great location on Avenida dos Aliados and on a corner with large windows so great for watching the world go by. Not cheap but excellent service and choice of food. 2 minutes from the metro, trams, buses and tourist buses. A place for a special treat.

We started as a group of 5 and grew to a group of 110, which fazed the staff not a bit. The polvo (octopus) was perfect, on a bed of greens and potatoes on the side. The rabanadas, typical at Christmas time, were (was?) excellent; in fact, too much for me. My dinner companions liked their baccalhao and beef. Unbelievably,... More

We came here for breakfast on two of the four days of our trip to the lovely city of Porto. Excellent service, especially from Rui, with a smile. Slightly more expensive than some areas but you are in the main square. Wish we'd found it earlier.

The staff were very attentive, nice and well dressed. The various appetizers were delicious and in good portions. We had grilled sea bass for main course and it was cooked perfectly. The dessert cheese cake was light and just right. The wine selection is excellent. Highly recommended.
