Description: Old and conventual food / cuisine with medieval flavours - the features...
Old and conventual food / cuisine with medieval flavours - the features which best describe this restaurant. These rushing times that run so fast push us to a stressful life. We have to live fast, eat fast, even sleep fast. Everything must follow the strict goals set by today’s society. This restaurant intends to calm you down and invite you to stop for a while, not to eat but to sense the flavours of food, to enjoy the time which we lack, to chat with someone you like, to philosophise on life. No television, just good music for a company. The food is slowly cooked (slow food), no French fries, no supermarket sauces nor additives … just good olive oil, wild herbs and good wine. And if you’re alone you can ask for just a glass. The recipes are all from the North, based on our research, recovering the old dishes that used to be served in the taverns, noble houses and convents. The desserts are always made in this restaurant. The specialities must be ordered in advance, due to their gastronomic qualities, however some of them will appear along the week, as well as some author’s recipes. Above all, we intend to make alchemy of fragrances, taste and appearance, if possible.

Just great cooking, fresh ingredients and great taste combinations

Restaurante Senhor Abade is located on a nice little square just up from Metrostation Trindade. I've eaten twice, to my delight. Joao Bahut has created his own cuisine, based on traditional recipes from Portuguese convents. He uses only fresh produce and in his food you will find very nice and... read more

Nothing good about this restaurant, poorly located in the rougher areas of Porto, exterior dark and not welcoming, interior poor and unfresh, micro team 2 persons serve and cook, the dishes with strange presentation and taste and big doubts is this fresh and healthy, very expensive for the quality of food over 50€ for a couple. All in all stay... More

At Senhor Abade you can count on a service with a smile. The table setting is as it should be, the food is delicious and balanced. The wine is savory and gives you an opportunity to enjoy a long pleasant evening. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates good cuisine.

João Bahut has developed unique dishes based on abbey recipes. Original, excellent food and reasonable price. Easily accessible by metro (Trindade central stop).
