The view, the service, and the unusual foods. We went for lunch, tried to make a dinner reservation for next night, but it was booked

Booked at short notice, on an evening when the restaurant was pretty busy, had a most enjoyable dinner. Excellent location, really good service and the food was very good indeed, which seems to be at odds with some other recent reviews, but very happy with the entire experience and would definitely recommend.

We actually clambered our way up to the Taylor's port wine establishment to do the tour...bout 45 minutes for five Euros and three tastings...interesting and worth the small outlay. We had 90 minutes to kill before the next English tour so decided to check out the restaurant. We'd done our research and read nothing but good things... I had the... More

This was our second visit to the Barao, having been there for lunch on a day trip to the city a couple of years ago. That lunch was good enough to ensure that on a return visit last weekend, staying at the Yeatman, we happily booked to go to Dinner there. The restaurant itself was not busy, although there was...

This restaurant has one of the most stunning views of Porto and the Duoro river, but its food falls short of its surroundings

Arrived a bit early for our tour of Taylor's Port lodge, so had time for lunch in their restaurant. Its a superb location, and the food is great! Staff were sufficiently attentive, and took care to ensure we didn't miss our allotted tour time (offering to allow us to come back and have desert later, should we wish). Our only... More

Many tourists tend to be sceptical of restaurants attached to Port Wine lodges or assorted attractions - as was I, when heading to this place. As it was fairly late in the afternoon (around 1400) and we wished to visit Taylor to taste their wine, we decided to give Barao Fladgate a shot. Thank goodness we did, or we would've... More

Having toured the Taylor's port cellars the day before we returned for lunch and the walk up the hill was well worth it! Very good food and great service, combined with a long (and slightly too heavy on the mark up - only criticism!) wine list.
