Nice views across the river but food only average.

A good location but average food. One of a string of restaurants across the north bank of the river with waiters hovering outside to encourage you in.

Tonight we decided to go for atmosphere and a lighter meal. The atmosphere was here in abundance with street entertainers and groups of people having a good time. We hadn't read the reviews beforehand but decided to stop here. My partner ordered swordfish and I ordered hake with rice and beans, a fairly typical meal. We were presented with little... More

The food was bad enough to remind me of my university's canteen at its worst. The octopus fillet I had had was saltless and wrapped in the egg roll without first drying, and so you had a watery tasteless mass coming out every time you cut through the egg roll, which tasted too much to rancid oil. The rice that... More

Looking for a place to eat I was walking along the Ribeira. someone have told me that the food is more expensive in the Ribeira zone. Of course it is, as you eat looking at the Douro river flowing, the rabelo boats floating and the birds flying. The food was very nice and the service was friendly.

I can forgive a fair bit for that alone. Pena Arroz is ok except the toilet, go before you get there,... 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.
