My wife and I were staying 3 doors down from this restaurant and kept walking by it for several nights. Finally we decided to try it and couldn't have been happier. Very helpful staff in recommending dishes, everything we had was really nice. The appetizers we had could have been split between two people. This isn't the place to get... More

Excellent service in a lovely environment, well-located in the city centre of Porto. We chose this restaurant as we had family over from the UK and felt that the menu offers a broad range of cuisine. They arranged a separate space for us as non-smokers on the 2nd floor, as aside from the ground floor, the rest of the restaurant... More

Near to our lodging and very well located on a busy plaza with plenty of people watching, O Cacula grabbed our attention for dinner our first night in town. A table was available on the terrace, we sat down and had a very pleasant meal that was a nice change from the more usual Portuguese fare. We shared a very... More

Chose this place for a late dinner after a long search / wander around town for somewhere to eat. Its in a quieter location away from the busy center so no views of the river, but the location & atmosphere were very pleasant nonetheless. Sat outside to enjoy the evening. We were a little bit disappointed with our pizzas, we'd... More

In a busy place in hert of porto, this cosy restaurant is a very good choice. A long list of food and drinks it enables a new experience. The francesinha made with pizza dough is different yet enjoyable one.. Pizzas and steaks are also a good choice..

We were recommended by our accommodation provided who also booked for us, so we did not expect to be on the middle table on the top floor, away from the atmosphere on the ground floor. Fish was partically uncooked, vegetables very chewy, service off-hand and wrong items served.

Two friends and I found Cacula by chance having returned to the city for dinner after an evening at the Casa da Musica. Highly recommended - we had had snacks at the Casa so opted for beer and tapas. It was a bit slow to get seated, but it was a busy, night and we did just turn up on... More

for a vegetarian in Porto, this was definitely a good option. Sitting outside on the quiet Praca Carlos Alberto was very pleasant, even on a damp night. The food was fresh and tasty and the service very congenial. A nice pizza vegetariano with plenty of garlic and a tasty dish of polenta, grilled cheese and roasted vegetables. Good dessert and...

We had a quick pit stop here, great little spot for people watching. Wine by the glass, but mainly only if the bottle is already open. Four floored restaurant plus outdoors eating area on a quiet street, but very near local bars for after dinner drinks. Our server was very helpful pointing out other places to try later in the...

The service was extremely good. The waitress had worked a 14 shift and was still smiley and friendly. The food was the best we had during 5 days in Oporto(though I would recommend they change the mousse de menta) . The fish/meat dishes came with fresh veg/salad unlike a lot of places which serve fish/meat with chips/rice as standard. It´s... More
