Barão Fladgate Restaurant enjoys a spectacular location and atmospheric setting in the grounds of Taylor's Port cellars with magnificent views across the Douro River to the old historic centre of Porto. It offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional cuisine where the accent is on fresh local ingredients and on showcasing the authentic flavours of Portugal. The wine list features a wide variety of labels from the main Portuguese vineyard areas and, as would be expected, a comprehensive choice of both wood-aged and Vintage Ports. In summer, Barão Fladgate opens its al fresco terrace area where guests can enjoy a choice of light dishes while enjoying the spectacular panorama of the old city.

Wonderful view, great service and food.

Even on a rainy day, the view here is lovely and the restaurant is very elegant. The wait staff were very attentive and the pre fixe lunch was very good.

This restaurant was fabulous. It checks all of the boxes for quality food, service, ambiance and view. From the moment we walked in, we were immediately greeted by the well dressed maitre d. He escorted us to our table, which was located next to the large arched plate glass windows with a direct unobstructed view of the Ponte Luis I... More

After touring the wine caves and tasting their Port wines, my husband and I stayed for lunch at the restaurant at Taylor's Port House. We opted for the set lunch menu, which turned out to be quite nice. My husband had the marinated sardines for his appetizer. I had the asparagus soup. We both had the sea bass on gnocchi... More

We visited Taylor's on a previous day and saw the restaurant and thought what a perfect place for a birthday lunch, we booked via Trip Advisor and arrived to a really nice welcome, Chip Dry white Port to start, along with breads and a couple small appetizers, this was a great start. The mains, dessert and wine were all really... More

I was here for the annual festival of San Joao and it was very busy with revellers. Dinner was a lively affair with lots of dancing and plastic hammers (don't worry, it's tradition but only on one night of the year). The food was OK but the big attraction was the views. The outdoor terrace was a superb place to... More

Saw a review on one blog that saying dining at this restaurant should be a must if you only have one meal in Porto. True that the experience was great! It gave you everything. View, service, food, creative & tradition, quality and quantity.

We took my Mum here for her birthday and they sat us in a window seat overlooking the River Douro! Our waiter, Mario was amazing and had a fantastic sense of humour and brilliant knowledge of wines, matching our food to the drink. They even put a candle of a cake for us! We obviously finished the evening with a... More

I don't want to assume anything but if you are on this side of the river you are probably a fan of port. Actually it's not an assumption as by the time you make your way back over the bridge you will be a fan even if you didn't like the stuff at breakfast time. The great thing about this... More

Its a steep walk up the hill but it is well worth it. As with all other dining options in Porto there are various offered extras (bread, olives but you can ignore or refuse them). The food was excellent and a little quirky having crumble as part of a main course is unusual but it worked. The service was excellent,... More
