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.

Need to come back so can try more dishes!

Mainly tasty Portuguese food with a few international dishes, great value, they even have a cheaper set menu but would recommend choosing from a la carte for more choices, very friendly staff, somewhere to go back to so to try more dishes!

Visited Restaurante Cafeina on a week night having found it on trip advisor during a stroll by the Atlantic. Since it's a block and a half off the actual seaside boardwalk, it's easily missed unless you know it's there - and missing it would be such a shame. Perfectly cooked food presented in a way that would probably even shut... More

If you are in Porto you should pay the visit to this restaurant. Try the bacalhau gratinado, which is superb. Very elegant, but somewhat noisy if large groups are present.

Excellent ingredients beautifully cooked must book but worth it. Food is not expensive and neither are the wines etc.. We had two evenings here and both were most enjoyable and we spent approximately €75 each time including a bottle of wine.

The food was exquisitely cooked and nicely presented. Service was perfect, never knew better elsewhere. Full and busy but even so quiet enough to have conversation. Dessert was heavenly.

My wife and I stepped into Cafeina for lunch. We weren't disappointed. The atmosphere was classy but also not too much. The food was delicious and the service was helpfull and professional. Prices are a bit high for Porto standards but but compared to Dutch standards very affordable.

Had a superb meal at Cafeina, would thoroughly recommend it. Steak to die for and an impressive wine list. Great service and good pudding!

We selected this place based on its Trip Advisor ratings and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is beautiful and reminds me of a reading room or a library in a large home. They were short of staff the evening the six of us dined there, but the maître d' stepped up and gladly took care of us by himself... More

The restaurant has lots of nice atmosphere and really good food. The menu is creative. I had Beef Wellington which was excellent. I had a lot of trouble getting the server to bring my cocktail, although it was the very first thing ordered. It took a long time to get the bill. Everyone liked their food, but we felt that...
