For sure one of the best restaurants in Porto! You can try the "bife Wellington" or the pork knee, but also pizzas or pastas with amazing flavor! I strongly recommend!

I've visited Casa da Foz more than once, and the last time was this weekend. It's a really cozy restaurant, with a small dinning room, and you should make a reservation before. Sangria it's really good, the pizza is great and the roast beef is awesome!

Don't know if I can add much more to what's already been said. I do know that my dinner there was probably one of the best meals I have ever had. The veal tenderloin was beyond description. I have never had that cut of meat and I couldn't believe how tender it was. My husband was equally impressed with the... More

We found this small restaurant off the beaten track up a back street, where you have to ring the bell to let you in. We had a white sangria recommended by the waiter, which was so refreshing and so different from normal red sangria. My wife had a tenderloin steak and I had the pork leg both were superb. The...

My wife and I visited Casa da Foz during our Honeymoon. We looked at Trip Advisor feedback, and decided to give it a go. It's tucked away in a quant lane way, with close proximity to the beach. We were greeted at the front door by the owner, offered our table and very quickly were had menus in hand. We... More

Wow! This Italian Restaurant is one of the best if not the best I have ever eaten at. My favorite cuisine is Italian ...so this is saying a lot. We took a taxi from old town Porto for $8 and was it worth it. There was 4 of us and we started with garlic and cheese bread......Yum. Then we split... More

After a few days of Portuguese food, which was great, we were looking for something different and were hungry for some Italian food. We found this restaurant because the recommendations on TripAdvisor were so positive. And we were NOT disappointed. We didn't remember to make a reservation (which you should!) and got there and had to wait outside because the... More
