Yummy and Homey

Taberna d'Avo (Grandma's Place) is a nice, cosy place with yummy food in a homey ambiance. Nice portions, good prices and smiling and helpful waitresses, no matter how busy they are. It is also a bit studenty place but we enjoyed both the atmosphere and the food and don't forget to order a chorizo... read more

This was my 2nd trip to Porto and I couldn't wait to get back to to this restaurant, It was even better than my 1st visit, There was no tables free when we arrived but we had a drink and waited for about 20 mins, no big deal. The food was super tasty, and the white wine sangria wss delicious!... More

I recommend this place for sure. The decoration is quite beautiful and they have an old style which makes the place very cosy and pleasant. If you are looking for typical portuguese food, here is the right place! The price could be a little high perhaps... however the food is good and tasty.

Not gourmet, but flavorful and homey, just like GrandMa used to make... if grandmother were Portuguese and hung old bicycles and what-not from the ceiling. Still, lots of fun with good drink, moderate prices and tasty food. Highlights were mushrooms and prosciutto, "bacalhau com natas" and chocolate cake. Four people, two bottles of wine, at least 8 dishes, two desserts,... More

Imagine poping in a restaurant where everything but the food is old! Chandeliers, chairs, sound-systems, jars, plates, decorating toys and on and on that your granny could easily have at her place. The smell is not old though, but in fact is delicious because of the amazing traditional Portuguese snacks available on the menu: steaks, soups, codfish, ham, mushrooms, sea... More

Museu D'Avo was completely packed when we got there, but we waited for a bit and got a spot- which was beyond worth it. It's a place where you choose a bunch of dishes and share, and I think that every single dish we chose was absolutely amazing (especially the garlic shrimps!!!). They have fun drinks as well and it's... More

Amazing tapas. I would like to make a very detailed review but truth is everything I had there was tasty and a very good price. Don't miss the bacalhau com natas, typical from Porto, nor the mushrooms with ham. Oh! And great sangria. The place itself is quite small and fun to be in, full of curious objects to look... More

This is a great place to go if yo don;t fancy a full meal. Good choice of tapas, chorizo is set alight when it's served so always a talking point. The mushrooms sadly come straight out of a tin, so avoid them as you will be disappointed! A bit of a hidden gem, can be hard to get a table... More

We would not have come across this lovely tapas bar if it had not been recommended by our Airbnb host. Translated to Grandma's Museum, this dark bar had lots of antiques hanging along the wall. It seemed to be mostly young locals hanging out when we were there. The tapas were delicious and cheap which is what we had been... More
