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

We booked a table straight after our tour and came back the following night. The set menu is good value and the wine list has something for everyone. The service was great and the restaurant staff does what it can to please or change your order if you can't eat certain things. Overall, the food was perfect, and as there... More

I went to this restaurant with my wife following others reviews on trip advisor, and as usual, it exceeded our expectations. I dont know why it is rated as a $$$$ restaurant since we had the chef menu for 25€ and even the wine chart was correct. The waiter was up to his job, gently suggesting a white porto wine... More

We had walked a long distance and all the restaurants down by the waterfront were filling up with smokers and the menus seemed really uninteresting. And it was really hot down there, so we headed up between the old stone shady buildings and ended up near the church, where we spotted a beautiful looking restaurant that had a Pizza sign... More
