Lovely setting and food.

Amazing service, very friendly and attentive, well designed restaurant. I would recommend the tasting menu and the paired wine selection, just relax and let the experts take care of you. Very good value for this standard of food.

Both the restaurant and the hotel bar were completely empty. The decoration is very nice and weird, and the food was truly excellent, real complex dishes made with local ingredients and presented perfectly

Modern excellent food with portuguese ingredients, must be the best restaurant in town! We opted for the middle price menu. Portion are small, but you have to remember that it is a degustation menu. The food is rich and we were certainly full having eaten our way through such a delicious menu!

I was surprised how good this restaurant is. They deserve a Michelin star! The tasting menu is less tha 60 euro and tastes just fabulous. The meat, fish and shrimps were cooked to perfection. The flavor was always exquisite. The waiter was attentive and explained almost every ingredient. The amuse bouche were prepared by a young cook so that you... More

This was by far the best meal we had in Porto! We opted for the middle price menu and the accompanying wines. Every course was a delight. Every wine was excellent.. not all would have been our choice as we normally prefer red, but all were good. The amusee bouche was very interesting.. described as tomato and meringue "ice"... it...

Perfect waiter and waitresses, perfect service, very good food. Located in a hotel, so you have to go through the hotel, the lighting of the restaurant was not to my taste.

No complaints. It's quality. But i sense that they're trying to hard to be cutting edge. Over hyped? Over swanky? And over priced? None of these are criticisms but diners need to know what to expect and what all their Euros are buying here. There are even more exciting choices in Oporto at a fraction of this price.
