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.

Cold food and slow kitchen

After seeing all the reviews here, we were excited about this restaurant. But, unfortunately, the bad reviews were right. 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... read 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

The food is always top quality, nice wine list, good service (a bit "lost" when it´s croudy). Ask for the tables next to the library, they´re the best for small groups. I can´t recomend nothing cause I love it all. Even when the service isn`t at its best, the quality of food compensates everything. Congrats, Vasco, for another great restaurant... More

Although restaurant's dinner service starts at 7h30pm, we've arrived at 7h35pm and still were not ready... We started our meal more than 30 minutes after. Good food, not spectacular. Very nice environment, a bit cold close to the windows.

Our hotel caused some confusion when booking our hotel (which was sorted out promptly) and even though the restaurant played no part in that they sent over a couple of glasses of champagne with compliments. When you see that level of service from a restaurant you know you are in for a GREAT meal to follow --- and exactly what... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this restaurant, it feels international, good service, excellent food, and the prices were reasonable considering the quality. We had an appetizer, delicious, a main course, and dessert, water and a glass of wine and the bill was 84,-- euro. The winelist was interesting but due to driving we had to let go of the wine....

Caffeina is a nice restaurant about a 10 minute cab ride for the old port area. Service and food were very nice without being exceptional .

Cafeina has been around for many years and it is still one of the best restaurants in Porto. Great ambiance, delicious food, definitely not to be missed!
