The food here is a good surprise. Modern but linked to traditional portuguese flavours. The location is unexpected, it is a flat in a residential area, but the space is elegant. I wish they would transform the veranda in a bar for summer nights because the view is beautiful

The ambiente and atmosphere is very charmy. Food was fantastic and we had a superb wine from the douro area for a fair price. Value for money is absolute ok. Taste the chefs menue, we loved it. Absolute recommendable place for an exquisite dinner !

This Restaurant was supposed to be one of the highlights of our trip to Porto, and we came in with high expectations, perhaps too high, based on the reviews here. We liked the ambience, and as we sipped some good wine before the food was served, we grew more excited about the coming meal. Up to that point, we had... More

Mesa is one of the most unusual restaurants I've been to: it's set in the fourth floor of an block of flats and when you exit the lift you go into a large foyer where you can choose to go left for a beautiful, relaxed and comfortable lounge where you can stay in privacy sipping a glass of champagne to...

The "bad things" first: it's a bit confusing to get there and it's weird to go to a restaurant in a 4º floor of a residential building. Superb! Fine cuisine, mixing traditional flavors and ingredients, delivering great dishes. I've tried the "Vitela de comer à colher" (free translate to: read meat that you eat with a spoon), and just couldn't... More

We've been there in january 2012 with my husband, who found this place in Time Out. Restaurant is located in quite residential area, on the 4th floor of condominium. We were only foreigners and the most young couple in the whole restaurant. Another guests were old and elegant pairs, living in neighbourhood. Sunday lunch cost 22,5 euro and consisted of... More
