Description: 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.

It took us a few minutes to spot the unmarked entrance to this first floor restaurant, but we`re glad we persevered. An intimate atmosphere, with gourmet cuisine. Excellent value for money, with most reasonably priced wines. Thoroughly recommended, though probably not the place for families with younger children.

White port wine tonic with ice cubes containing lemons. A delicate mound of spices on the butter. Warm, sweet whole wheat bread, duck with pureed sweet potato: the clever touches made this stylish tucked away restaurant memorable. Meanwhile, the elegant personalized design made us feel as if we'd slipped into the home of a local family. Never would have found... More

I so want to give this place full marks, but can't. The food was fantastic, the room itself beautiful, the wine list great, the service polite and attentive. The problem was the heat, which was oppressive. Myself, dining guest and people around sweated for the duration. Open one of the windows, or buy a fan and this would have been... More

I came here on my last night in Porto and would have loved to come back for lunch the following day but unfortunately they are not open for lunch service. The food menu is well thought out with a good variety to cater for most people's preferences, and the restaurant itself has a very cosy feel to it with an... More

Incredible reviews on Trip Advisor (and elsewhere) are well deserved. The Camafeu is a little hard to spot as you walk down the street. Even staff at the bakery across the way couldn't tell us where it was! However, searching a little for the location was worth it. The atmosphere, the food--everything was amazing. We took a very early reservation... More

Our best meal in Portugal. Every dish we had was good or better, and the Dessert Cappuccino was the best dessert that I have had this year. The service was attentive and friendly, the wine recommendations were helpful, the setting was charming. I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Best meal we had in Portugal and perhaps in our lives. Have the cheese & honey, sausage pastry as appetizers and the pork cheek and the octopus for main dish. It was succulent! Wash it down with some old aged Porto. Reserve before as tables are limited.
