Very nice !

Great service, live music and fresh cod - What to ask for more. Nice decoration and good view on Square also did the trick.

The waiters really cannot do enough for you and they all speak many languages. the food is lovely and so is the wine. We really enjoyed our dinner here. One of the more costly meals we had but not over expensive at all and good portion sizes.

Lovely food and great service. Prices reasonable but wine and drinks expensive. Orders taken on electronic pads and our waiter tried to charge us for 3 desserts when there were only two of us and we hadn't had dessert anyway, but the issue was quickly solved with no fuss just make sure you check your bill before paying. The place... More

It's great to find an Art Deco cafe still working and still serving in the traditional style. We only popped in for a small breakfast so cannot comment on full meals. The toasted sandwich and filled croissant were both cheese and ham and largely indistinguishable. Service pleasant and coffee good. A few locals lingering over morning newspapers and coffee. The...

A very well known cafe/restaurant on Liberade. Art deco with smart dress uniform waiting staff who are polite, attentive and efficient. Whatever we ate or drank was good, we had lunch or drinks here several times, the Pastel de Nata are the best in Porto we decided and showed our appreciation by eating a lot of them. Lunch on the...

This place was right next to my hotel so I decided to give it a go since I was tired and didn't want to walk too far. They have live music as well and there was a nice singer performing. I tried the special for that Friday - cod shavings with sausage and a fried egg (can't recall the exact... More

A fine restaurant in the heart of the city. Pianist gave atmosphere. Service exceptional. Food superb. Large, classical dining experience from the same Owner as the Cafe Majestic.

Its quite a busy cafe. the waiter was helpful but food was lukewarm and certainly not our best choice of a place to eat in Porto. Food was relatively expensive for the relatively poor quality. final bill had extras added for bread and nibbles which we didn't order. Lovely period dining hall though.
