Nice evening

Great evening. Enjoyed the ready served starters especially the veal foie gras. Kept the cheese for after. Had the shared steak. Very nice but not the most tender. Veg great. Charged for bottle of wine we didn't have!

Service and decor is first class. We did not have the 3 starters which is already on the table. Surprised that we were not offered an aperitif. Sommelier service advised on our selection which was very good. Wine prices can be considerably above the food prices which are okay compared to UK prices for fine dining. I had veal terrine...

Great restaurant for a special night out in Porto. A bit of a splurge cash-wise, at by Porto standards - however, it's worth it. Excellent service, exquisite food, and a hybrid formal/casual approach - not to mention some very good Douro wine. It's the little touches that really make it though, I won't ruin the surprise ...it's location, a quick... More

Undoubtedly well known, but you'd walk right past if you didn't know where it was. I loved this restaurant from the moment we had to knock on the door to enter. It felt like some kind of Alice down the rabbit hole experience. Walking inside, it feels like you've entered a 1700s style coach inn - rustic with open stone... More
