Having done an extremely thorough investigation on the web, I decided to reserve here in this – slightly off the tourist path located- restaurant! Together with high expectations we were seated at a too small table! The ambiance was however nice (quite full) and my hopes that the food would make-up a lot was well founded. It started with escalope... More

Very nice place, great decor and young still profesional service. We had a great meal for 4, with 2 great Portuguese albariño for about 100 euros. 3 days in Porto, and was for sure the best lunch we had quality for price.

We had the set lunch menu which was very nice and excellent value - 18 euro each for 3 courses including cover and water. Food was really nice and the service good.

Restaurant is located in the centre of Foz. Nice walking distance from our nice B&B (4 Rooms Porto). Good price and very trendy place with great atmosphere.

One of my favourites in Porto. Food is very good and it's a mix between the traditional ingredients and trendy/ nouvelle cuisine. The Codfish is a must: they have a special Codfish dish in the menu that got famous because the first time that was made, it was made for the President of Brazil (Bacalhau à Dilma). The desserts are... More

Delicious food, nice and cozy atmosphere, good wines.. We came for lunch so no booking was needed but I bet in the evening you should book a table. Since it's not really in the center you can take a cab or take tram number 1 and then walk down the ocean road.

Finally ate here after many recommendations on various trips to Porto. The restaurant was busy but the staff found us a table. Overall the food was good - beef Wellington pastry was a little greasy but it was generally good, however the staff seem to have a real chip on their shoulders - I don't think I saw any of... More

What a great restaurant... The food was impeccable, the decor is very very fine and the service was totally professional and friendly (though it did slow down a bit as the night progressed). Not cheap, but also not over-priced, if we consider what we get. Don't forget to book in advance!
