We were in Porto on a Monday when some restaurants are closed so we couldn't go to our first or second choice in the area where we were. We used TripAdvisor's "near me now" function to find somewhere close. We ended up at O Marinheiro since it was close, had decent reviews and had shaded outside seating. It was just... More

Food is traditional and delicious. Generous portions and value for money (meat, fries and rice at 3.8 euros). Staff is amazing, made me feel at home, and remembered me when i returned for a second time. Will definitely visit the restaurant again if I'm back in Porto in future.

We were searching a Portuguese restaurant in Porto with a reasonable price. This restaurant came across to our attention, we were happy to be there. Good service & food with a good suggestion of red wine very cheap (6.5 €). We had grilled sardines, grilled veal and grilled prawn. Good choices for us.

It surprising me when i visit this restaurant for a second time, they still knew me and greet me as our closed neighbor. When we are far away from hometown, it will be nice have a lunch or dinner here because the atmosphere is like home.... The ambient is cool, the food is good and the price is what Portuguese... More

Love the environment and portuguese traditional food, especially arroz de pato (without bacon). My Indonesian friends often go there to search for the nasi bebek. The staffs also friendly. Even they also want to teach portuguese :D

This restaurant was located quite close to our hotel, and very close to the city centre. As such, it was an ideal location for our last meal out in Porto. We got a nice seat near the door. I ordered grilled gambas. They turned out to be almost cremated. It was virtually impossible to get them out of their shells.They... More

It is a good option, to eat fantastic traditional dishes. There are a huge variety of dishes to choose. I ate a rice with seafood. Really good. The prices are competitive. The restaurant it is close to Avenida dos Aliados. Fantastic choice.

Arriving late on our final days stay in Portugal, bags and two hungry kids in tow. We stubbled across this restaurant sandwiched between hamburger and mexican restaurants. Staff were great, gave the kids some attention and a free sweet at the end. Food was really tasty and good value. 4 people inc wine and dessert €50. Great find....
