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.

Found it on the app...we had the menu which was really good, looks and tastes like you would expect it to be made by an amazing fancy cuisine chef, unexpected if you look at the decent price. Enjoyed the atmosphere, the wine and the music.

Nice (romantic) restaurant with several fish and meat options, "gourmet" style with several portuguese condiments that make food special. The service was perfect. The price has around 80€ with entrances, desert and drinks included. Kitchen is open until 1am. Recommended for romantic couples

Do not expect what you order will be served unless you double confirm your order when you order in English. Some staffs are good at English but some are not. Then you will receive unexpected bill when you pay and she will insist she is correct!! Others were okay including food quality.

Excellent food, service and nice ambiance in Porto, Portugal. The best codfish I've ever had. A place to return.

Wile the restaurant wasn't near the tourist part of Oporto it was well worth the drive. The service was excellent and our waitress's recommendation were on the mark. We had the Confit Cod fish for the main entree and an appetizer with scallops. It was a charming restaurant in a very nice neighborhood. I wish we had gotten there earlier... More

Came here for a birthday dinner & quite impressed - interior quite vogue & stylish - seems to be frequented by the local 'well off portuguese' trying to impress their ladies on date night! Food was overall very good - particularly the starters. Main disappointment was how overly salty the cod was (particularly as we only ordered it as per... More

Some reviews describe Cafeina as an "en vogue" place: it's probably so, anyway the food was good and the service quick and helpful. Good choice of wine - of course the porto was the top, incredible desserts. The price was surprisingly low.
