We expected a lot more. The restaurant is lovely, a block off the ocean and well decorated. Moreover, the service was kind and attentive. However the food was spotty. We shared a mozzarella and tomato salad which was lovely and gave us high hopes, but both of our entrees (prawns for me, leg of lamb for my fiance) were bland... More

Having had some disappointing meals in Porto we reverted to asking the Sheraton concierge for a recommendation and we were delighted with the result. This medium sized restaurant in Foz, a suburb of Porto about 5 minutes from the center was an absolute delight. They didn't have a table in the non smoking area, so instead they put us right... More

Really great food after some disappointing meals in Porto (I couldn't get into the boiled potatoes and codfish I was seeing everywhere!! (Hadn't eaten boiled plain potatoes in years!) We had a couple of gorgeous fish dishes and shrimp bisques both of which were lovely and by London standards the price was certainly reasonable

The food was great and the service even better. We were seated at a table in a rather loud part of the restaurant and the staff graciously reseated us, so we'd be more comfortable. Muito bom!

Cafeína stands among the best restaurants in beautiful O Porto. Located near the mythic "Foz do Douro", this branché restaurant occupies a historic house dating from the beginning of the 20th century, completely renovated, with modern décor, soft lighting and loud music. The menu is quite extensive, with many options. Seafood and codfish dishes are always a must! Reservations are... More

we were first a bit desillusioned by the outside cold view of this restaurant, but instantly overwhelmed by the warm interior and the welcoming staff. The food is delicious and we can highy recommend this address : the outside doesn't impress but once entered, it's the place you want to be !

I have not much to say about Cafeina, I consider it an example, difficult to explain when everything is so good and perfect, design, service, food, creativity and an excellent atmosphere like you can only find in the best restaurants of the World!!!!
