We chose this restaurant over the one MIchelin-starred restaurant in the Yeatman (where we were staying), and we were very glad we did. The food here was very good, grounded in traditional Portugese cooking, but with a little flair. The wine pairings were excellent. This is a young team -- but they've got ambition, and they are creative without over... More

Food was outstanding. It was fresh, innovative and beautifully presented. We were greeted graciously. Meal well timed but wine service spoilt the experience somewhat. Wine was not topped up New bottle ordered but did not arrive until we were almost finished our main. Wine waiter a bit precious. No notice was taken of keeping water up to the table.

Great food, atmosphere, service and good value for what should have one if not two Michelin stars. Muito obrigado to the team.

The dinner at Pedro Lemos (20140725) was an great experience to remember. We (six family members) chose the five courses menue, but made different choises of the individual dishes. All dishes were well composed, prepared and presented. We are happy we found this great restaurant, it is not a place you find by chance, and we will come back for... More

Great food in Portugal can turn out to be an issue if you come like me from Northern Europe. Most of the time I feel that the food over here lacks some seasoning. Well I can tell you very much not so with Pedro Lemos' kitchen. His beautiful restaurant is hidden near the shores of Porto and once you ve... More

The kitchen and the dishes of this restaurant are - due to the high price-level - reasonable. But unfortunately not more. The staff is "over-active", you don´t feel any privacy and they are always around you with a sort of penetrative pressure. They tried to fool us with the wine (offering a half glass for a try and then charging... More

Portuguese cuisine is prepared by one of Portugal's best here on meaning very best chefs. The dishes are refined and purely prepared. The setting is both attractive and elegant. An absolute must for a delicious intimate dinner.

I really liked this restaurant and I think it deserves a Michelin sign. Maybe not a star yet, because there was an egg at the menu that was not available (it was Sunday in Portugal, we can comprehend a few things...) and because the service was 99% but not 100%. But the food and the desserts compensate these very small... More

We were staying in Foz area of Oporto and while walking along the tiny old lanes we discovered this restaurant. It was buzzing and certainly appeared to be "the place to be seen"! We were walking by on another evening and the restaurant was just opening at 7.30pm and were lucky enough to get a table. The Head Waiter/Sommelier was... More
