OK food OK service, great place to watch the world go by

OK food OK service, great place to watch the world go by I need to say I love Porto, and I love sitting in the cafe’s come restaurants looking out over the river and watching the world go by. I can forgive a fair bit for that alone. Pena Arroz is ok except the toilet, go before you get there,... read more

Tourist trap. Frozen fish. Dirty. They should close it. The food tasted bad, ingredients of bad quality and staff that care nothing about questions or complains. Tip: avoid the restaurants in this street.

Simply bad and a tourist trap. Prices and choice looked fine, and enough people were eating already. Quickly we noticed that people were complaining about bad food and bad service and we noticed it a bit later ourself.

Typical tourist spot on the river, at least not crazy prices. Food was edible but nothing super special. Safe to eat but kind of fast food-ish.

I ate here with my friend a few days ago. Luckily, I ate before so I was not that hungry. We sat down and the waiter rushed by and put an array of olives, breaded and fried crab, and bread and cheese saying "you only pay for what you eat". Well when you're hungry it's hard not to eat food... More

They speak several languages, are friendly and the price quality is ok, and you are on the border from the Douro river, you have the choice th have a seat on the... More

We thought it would be a nice place to sit and watch the douro river. I ordered a glass of wine, i got a 0,5 liter bottle (they only served bottles). My partner ordered a small beer and got 0.5 liter. This was all very expensive. The food was simply terrible. I ordered fried calamaris, i got baked pieces of... More

Tourist trap. No other explanation. It was getting late and they had indoor seating. Only one other table occupied outside. We should have taken the hints. Staff more interested in smoke breaks than service. Food was just plain bad. Looked slopped together and thrown on a plate as fast as possible. The cod cakes served as an appetizer plate were...
