Experienced one of our most memorable meals in Europe at this restaurant. Our waiter was amazingly patient as he answered our questions about the wine and food . We dropped in with no reservations and were poorly dressed, still that were extremely accommodating!

We ate their on our first night in Porto, tried the tasting menu and weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, and the service was great. We have tried tasting menus in other places before, but this place was probably the best food we have had. Each dish was excellent, sophisticated and tasted great. The restaurant is inside the hotel and... More

Let me be blunt by comparison: the next night we ate at The Yeatman, which has a Michelin Star, but Palco was better, and we wish we had eaten at Palco again instead! Creative menu, delicate flavors, lovely service, nice ambience, all at a very reasonable price. This was the best meal we had in Porto, and we cannot recommend... More

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. It's situated in the Teatro hotel. Very original design. Try to make a reservation for a nice table. We took the 4-course menu (with dessert, so 5 courses) for Eur 44,00 and also the wine selection for Eur 19,00 (5 glasses). We started with 2 amuses and before the dessert also a pre-dessert. They richely... More

Set in the amazing Teatro Hotel, this restaurant offers the best food in the hand of Chef Arnaldo Azevedo. Tried the Degustação Menu (2 entrees,2 mains, 1 dessert), absolutely divine. Pamper yourself and your palate!

Creative tasting menu, and a good chance to taste the region's wines when opting for the wine pairing. More expensive than average in Portugal but still very reasonable for a tasting menu. Beautiful place and convenient if staying in the hotel. Very attentive service.

To start I am a foodie. This restaurant has execellent food. My wife and I had the tasting menu with the wine parings for 44 + 17 euros. The only negative, the food was too rich. The service was as good as it gets. The wine servings were very generous.

very good athmosphere inside a great hotel downtown. Good for romantic dinners. Very nouvelle cousine but very tasty food. Not a every day restaurant but still a good place to go every now and then.

We got the tasting menu (44€+17€ for accompanying drinks). It's composed of four main courses plus an appetizer and mise en bouche dessert. Look at the menu and think it's even better than it looks. The scallops and bluefish tuna are spectacular, and the magret is delighful as well. When the first dessert arrives, despite your surprise, fear not: it's... More
