Based on the renovation of an early-20th century house, contrasting sober and elegant decoration with bold, contemporary interior architecture, results in a sophisticated and unique atmosphere, combined with modern, elegant and cosmopolitan culinary offerings. An exceptional place in Porto.

I went to Cafeina to a romantic dinner, and it was all perfect. The prosecco that I ordered when I reserved the table, was served almost immediately after arrival. The food was delicious, the customer service outstanding and the price absolutely amazing. Great quality, great atmosphere, great dinner. Looking forward to go back.

We had an excellent lunch in Cafeína. From the starters to the desserts we had a lot to taste and be delighted. Cafeína is a French Cuisine restaurant that is a reference in Oporto.

the restaurant is about a 15 minute bus ride from the train station and is located 1 street behind the river. The food was very good and the extensive wine list (presented on an ipad) had something for all tastes and budgets. The restaurant was very busy but service was good. It has interesting decor and all in all a... More

Great place. Food and wine lists are perfect, and service is at the same level. Great location, the Atlantic sea is just there. And prices are very recommendable for the quality offered.

My second visit. I and 2 friends had a lovely relaxing Sunday lunch. The food was superb and the wine was outstanding. I love the atmosphere. The only downside was that the service was poor in the beginning. This was because the restaurant was full and busy. This was not much of an excuse. However, once things settled down the... More

We ate at Restaurante Cafeina during our first stop over in Porto. The restaurant is near the port and about a 15-Euro taxi ride from the center of Porto, on the border of Matoshinos. Unbeknownst to us, we were seated in the non-smoking area. (Yes, smoking continues to be allowed in Portuguese restaurants!) The environment is very pleasant. However, the... More

Maybe 15 years ago I was first there ... and impressed. Whenever I was in Porto I came back. Always good food and good service. Renown restaurants over the years often give up their attention to quality and service. Today we went again, with a baby; and again the service was hyper-friendly, attentive and caring ... and utterly effective. The... More
