A lovely evening guaranteed

I've been to Cafeina 3 times and had a great evening every time. It's a short cab ride out of the city centre in what I'm told is the smart coastal area.

I had one of the best foie grad I ever had. Cashew nuts soup was delicious as well. Cod Fuad as main dish was the best I had in Portugal.

At first time we were surprised because our reservation was not found. However this was very well solved. We were accommodated in a lounge and blessed with a good sparkling wine and some appetizers. Dinner was very good with wonderful wines. Very nice choice.

The kitchen didn't work well, the dishes were served after a long time and cold! We've waited about 20 minutes for the starter, plus 20 minutes for the main dish and more than 20 minutes for de desert. The desert was... More

Modern restaurant, good service and wine list. Tasty food, good ambance, music a little bit too loudy, but a very good place to go. Don't miss going for a walk by tge beach at Avenida Brasil. A trendy and modern part of the city. Also in such context, the restaurant is a good example of the modern life of Porto.... More
