Porto's Premier Restaurant !? We arrived and another couple were there ahead of us. We sat in the lobby with them until we had been given our water infused with cloves and ginger and our rice sticks. I didn't dislike the water but was it better than plain water? I'm not sure it was. The rice sticks were not to... More

Setting: 5/5 When you arrive, do not expect to see a sign outside of the door. This is intentional, to make you feel as though you have arrived at a friend's home for dinner. The host or hostess will greet you and then strategically seat you far from other patrons to maintain a private and quiet atmosphere. Note that this... More

Superb restaurant serving traditional dishes from the area. Knock on the door and you are greeted with a very warm welcome from the Maitre d'. The Sommelier and the staff were very attentive but the food was the star of the evening. I recommend the Bacalhau (Salted Dried Cod) which is reconstituted piece of cof fillet and simply fried until... More

The appetisers were on the table before we arrived. The menu was an excellent choice, of meats in particular. The restaurant is not in the city center, and for a tourist, it was... More

Lovely restaurant situated a 10 min car ride from the old part of Porto. The decor is very classical and caters to business and couples alike. The menu is focused on local ingredients, and caters to fish and meat lovers alike. Less is more seems to be the philosophy of the kitchen, and while I appreciate that, it may be... More

This restaurant is the best in Porto . Great food and terrific service. Decor good. Wine list ace Ceouteous. Starters selected in advance which worked well. Shame it's a little distance away from the town centre

So, it's not cheap but that's what you pay for excellent service, beautifully presented food in a lovely setting, superb ingredients. I loved it. Yes, of course you'll pay for the starters on your table when you arrive but why quibble when you can eat an extraordinary veal terrine worth twice the €5.5 we paid for it. The service was... More
