I visit the cafe with friends for a cafe. There was some people inside, maybe most of them tourists. The waiters was kind, but the coffe not. The coffe was a for-turists-made-brown-water, not the Portugal strong one. The waiter was smily and made a photo of us. They use Delta coffe.

This was our first meal in Portugal and we were looking for seafood. Our hotelier recommended this restaurant for that reason. The Robalinho and Lombo Bacalhau were perfectly prepared and worth a rather long wait. Service was a bit on the slow side as we seem to have been forgotten between appetizers and placing the order, which was addressed in... More

We had read reviews of Café Guarany and decided to stop in for lunch one day while it was raining. What we had imagined was a casual place instantly felt more upscale as the doorman opened up the door for us and let us choose our table. The service here was exceptional and we felt very catered for. We both... More

Having a Belgina business partner on a visit to Porto, I decided to take him to the historic part of town (Baixa) for dinner. It was a Tuesday night and there was almost nobody out on the streets, also because of the weather, as it was raining. Having known this Café for a long time thought it was the ideal... More

What is impressive first is this so beautiful Art Nouveau decorum and Design of this up-t-date restaurant Avenida dos Aliados in Porto (Portugal). Our visit would largely be paid by this decorum. But the service of high venue, for a light, delicious meal makes of "the Guarany" surely the best place to go and lunch or dinner in Porto. Fado... More

We had two excellent dishes: a tasty sea bass and some very tender octopus. The octopus was one of the most tender I have eaten in a restaurant and also very delicious. The plating was professionally done

This is a lovely old-fashioned cafe in the central square of Porto. The service is a bit slow, and the waiters do like to ignore you, but this is not a place for people in a hurry. It is a leisurely and very beautiful place. The tablecloths and napkins are made of beautiful linen and ironed to perfection - for... More
