This was a special dinner treat. We had the 5 course taste menu, each course accompanied by a glass of wine. The food and the service were faultless.

We had been told about this restaurant by our accommodation and decided to try it for lunch one day. It was so good we went back a second time! We did not book either time but the 2nd visit we were lucky to get a seat. Obviously some days are busier than others. The restaurant is set in a magnificant... More

O Comercial restaurant is located in the old stock exchange in Porto and is close to the Douro river and noisier and busier restaurants. The restaurant's setting is elegant and the atmosphere is very relaxed and peaceful in contrast to restaurants along the Douro. The prix fixe menus is of very good quality and relatively inexpensive and the a la... More

We went here for dinner in August and absolutely loved it. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and a beautiful view to Vila Nova de Gaia. For 25€ you do not get the 7-course menu some other people mentioned from earlier visits, but still an excellent 3-course menu. Therefore, I would say the prices are fair! Food is absolutely... More

We had booked in advance by email and, unlike others, we didn't think it was difficult to find but it is indeed inside the Stock Exchange building. We opted for a la carte which was obviously more expensive than the set dinner (which was 25eu per head) and more expensive than other Porto restaurants but we thought it worth the... More

Good, quiet, quality restaurant, located inside the museum. We went there at night and I had to pass it two times before I realized the restaurant was located inside the museum. Service, quality of the menu and the price were all good.

Had a lovely meal here. Food was fab and great size portions. It is in the expensive side for Porto but worth the treat. Chocolate spicy fondant was to die for!!

O Comercial is located in an otherwise empty 19 c stock exchange which highlights the excesses of the Gilded Age. It is a bit hard-to-find but well worth the search. The room is quite luxurious and comfortable and the service first-rate. The selection and variety of food was excellent although the taste not quite up to the same standard. Still,... More
