Spur of the moment

Tried the Rua Tapa and Music Bar but surprisingly it was shut. However the O Cacula made up for our disappointment. Very good tapas and attentive waiters. Would strongly recommend it.

We wandered in here after being refused from two other restaurants that were fully booked. The staff were very friendly and had a very good standard of English. The service was fast and the food was good.. Would recommend!

IF you want to taste great Portuguese wines and superb food, talk to owner Jorge at this charming restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. He has made a study of his country's wines, and his selection is wonderful. Talking to him about them is even better. I stayed in a lovely airbnb apartment next door to the restaurant, and... More

We though Porto would be a bit of a challenge with two vegetarians in our party, but have to say its not been as hard as expected. O Cacula is a lovely little place, quite central and near the famous Rue De Miguel Bombarda. We went on a quiet Wednesday evening but there were already a few other groups there.... More

We arrived on a Thursday evening. Our hotel recommended this restaurant. This restaurant is in a nice area, quiet and charming. Inside is a cozy ambiance. You feel relaxed. They have a wood burning stove to make pizza. The service is very professional as well. I had their chicken Francesinha. It was delicious. My wife had a vegetarian dish that... More

O Cacula's situated in a prime location near the city centre, near the Torre dos Clerigos and the Natural History Museum. It's none too big but that's usually were you find the best eating spots in a city especially if you're keeping a keen eye on your expenses. Even though there are cheaper restaurants in the area, the quality and... More

We had a very nice, maybe almost romantic dinner, at the table next to the hard working pizza baker. We really felt like having pizza that night, so when we saw this restaurant has an actual wood oven , we didn't hesitate and walked in. The menu looks promising. The wines per glass and bottle from cheap to moderately priced.... More

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
