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

We liked all our choices from the menu expect chocolate flan, which was very basic. The bread and vinegar/oil were mediocre and were charged seperately without asking unlike in other places we visited. Food was good, though.

Went to O Cacula tonight and returned home desillusioned. We were hoping for a night with modern but genuine food. However, we were unable to enjoy the food - which actually was pretty alright - since the staff was absolutely ignorant for the client. Pretty sure that the atmosphere at an average funeral is more pleasant than the one at... More

Very nice bar, have been there in early 2013 and I am still looking for the wine we had there: it was from the wine cooler (so open bottle) and it was definitely a red Alentejo Riserva but I don't remember more. Can you pls tell the name of the cellar and year? Best wishes from Switzerland

Dear TravelerSwitzerland, first of all thank you for your comment. We are pleased for the fact that we remained in your memory! We change our wines often but we risk that the wine you proved may be the Cartuxa or Cartuxa Reserva. Hope we can help or maybe receive you once again at O Caçula! Best regards, The Caçula Team More

They offer a 3 course lunch menu for around 8EUR and you can choose fish, meat or vegetarian. They then let you mix and match the appetizer and the dessert to your liking. I ate here twice and found it to be very good quality for the price and a nice atmosphere for sitting outside at the plaza and people... More
