On the first floor of a historical site in Porto's downtown, recently opened a small quiet restaurant, called Camafeu. Go back to the times where you had a meal at your grandparent's place, where the decor was romantic but eclectic and where you can indulge yourself on mouth-watering but not-pretentious food.At dinner time, you are invited to stay for a late drink and enjoy, through the big windows, the scenery of the square bellow (Praca Carlos Alberto, named after our late King). We invite you to try the tender Sirloin steak or the Duck with figg jam, or the Prawn porridge among other fabulous appetizers and main-courses. Everybody will love our home-made desserts. Don't forget to ask for the famous Portuguese wine from the Douro region, either it's Port, White or Red.

Recommended by our guesthouse owner Marta (of Porta Azul), Camafeu was the perfect spot for our 1st wedding anniversary dinner. The place is unique, cosy and old-fashioned romantic all in one. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food and the wines, everything we had was absolutely delicious and generously portioned. We ended up having two rounds of... More

We reserved at Camafeu after reading the numerous good reviews. The place is very pretty, on the second floor of a building, do not hesitate to push the door from the street! Ask for the table by the window if you can. Service is very polite and professionnal, and the food is very good too. I had the octopus and... More

I loved everything about this restaurant, from the food to the decoration. The service was polite and professional, the decoration made you feel like you were in your grandmas house, and the food was delicious. In conclusion, it's a restaurant I'm looking forward to return to, and I would recommend it to everyone.

The restaurant is very cozy. The food is very good. Probably if I had gone on another day i would give 5 stars. However, I went on very hot night (28º C) and the air conditioning did not work, which made the room extremely warm. Whe i left i was sweating a lot. It is urgent to change the situation.

Again, we reiterate our excuses for that day. In fact it was not a normal temperature for Porto and the AC was not working – everything at the same time. We hope you can visit us another day and have a more refreshed experience and I am sore you will give us the 5 stars! More

What we liked: 1. location and atmosphere - very romantic, lovely and nice 2. starters - tasty and delicious What we didn't like: 1. service - a bit messy (like bringing 3 starters for 2 persons at different time) and making wait for dishes for 1 hour 2. main dishes - octopus was too salty and cod was to dry

We have to accept your comments but have to remind you what happen. As you remember, as you have chosen three different starters, and you said that you will share them, we ask you as if we can bring it as it will be prepared – and you agree. This is something that we think it’s more comfortable for our... More
