Perfect for a fancy dinner out at affordable prices

Absolutely wonderful food. The wine was fantastic and not excessive price. The turkey magret did not come with the advertised sauces, but was still wonderful. The prawn and squid with mash was also wonderful. We thought the chocolate cake was a little bit too intense, and the green tea ice cream... read more

Absolutely wonderful food. The wine was fantastic and not excessive price. The turkey magret did not come with the advertised sauces, but was still wonderful. The prawn and squid with mash was also wonderful. We thought the chocolate cake was a little bit too intense, and the green tea ice cream was served in small quantities. Generally, good quantity served... More

I've been there several times, and not even once, I left disappointed. You can always count on the quality and honesty of the food. Although service is usually very good, I’ve experienced some flaws, once or twice. Decoration is sober and elegant, and it has a relaxing atmosphere. If you choose this restaurant, you can never fail, and I dare... More

This find demonstrates Trip Adviser at its very best - it's set back a block from the seafront and we'd never have discovered it but for other reviewers, so thank you.

Contemporary Portuguese food in a lovely dining room. Exceptional food and terrific ambience. Beautiful local ingredients, perfectly prepared. Outside of the Oporto centre in the Foz do Douro district, just a few blocks up from the ocean. If you are in Porto make a reservation, you don't want to miss this one!

Was a recommendation of our hotel (The Yeatman). Went there for late lunch while visiting Foz do Douro and Matosinhos. Nice and stylish restaurant with excellent Portuguese food. Very good value!

Cafeína is probably Porto's best Restaurant. It is located in Porto's most prestigious neighborhood. The ambiance is great, the food is excellent and the wines are extremely well selected. I truly recommend it. If you'r lucky enough you might also see some world celebrities.

we were asked whether we wanted smoking or non smoking, a question which in europe has become obsolete. then we found out that next to our table in the non smoking section was the door to a small terrace outside for the smokers . so at each opening of the door, we had a wave of smoke coming in. senseless...

Restaurant away from the city center but definitely worth it to go there. A great menu, good wine list. Should be improved service, we waited quite a long time and the service was cool
