Stumbled upon this wonderful restaurant tucked back in the corner of the Palacio da Bolsa just as it opened for lunch. Four of us had "à prix fixe" treat at €20 each. Very elegant, service great, and food spectacular - we didn't want to leave and get on with our sight seeing.

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...

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
