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!!!! You can only know what you have to miss if you don't visit it. Congratulations to the... More

We had dinner end of June 2014 in this restaurant. We loved the atmosphere, the soft lighting, the service and above all the food. The bacalhau a Dilma is to die for! We also loved the filet mignon de porco preto and the terrina de foie gras. The desserts were very good tood. We had an excellent wine by the... More

The staff is very welcome, and the atmosphere is excellent. The food is also great. Just don't like the i-pad list of wines ... to choose wine, in my oppinion, is better the old-fashion way ... a printed one.

We have been in Europe for two months and have been to many of the "best" restaurants in most of the major capital cities. Tonight we had the best meal yet - by far - at this restaurant. The service and food are both amazing, and the prices are very reasonable for fine dinning (18.5 Euros for chateaubriand). This place... More

We went to this restaurant during our stay in Porto city center. It is located on the seaside in the west of Porto, you can take the old tram (blue, line 1) to get there, walk 10mins and enjoy the view along the river, it's about a 25min ride. The menu offers a large choice, the food is very tasty... More

I grew up in Porto and go back to visit my family and friends every three months or so. I try new restaurants everytime I visit but I always have to go to Cafeina (well, and it's only a two minutes walk from my mum's house which helps) The food is a mix between Portuguese and international/modern food. The actual... More

Quite international cuisine hopefully with portuguese ingredients and smells. Place is nice, modern but warm and the staff is very helpful. Don't hesitate to taste wines (ipad wine list!).

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.
