Excellent place with a fantastic view over Porto. The food was very good. Tried risoto and codfish. Perfect. I will return for sure.

Besides the usual port tour and tasting try lunch at Taylor's. Restaurant opens at 1230 and can get busy. Excellent food, wine and port along with great views over the city and river. Have had some great meals with family and friends, always have lunch here when we are in Porto. Two courses, port and wine about 40 euros each,... More

We ate lunch in the reaurant before visiting the Taylor bodega. All the food was prepared from fresh ingredients and was very tasty. For the main course, we had the fish of the day, which was just simply fried to preserve its original taste. The waiter was friendly and witty. We left the place in a good mood.

We spent a very memorable afternoon and Taylor's on a beautiful day in Porto. It was a hot steep walk up but so worth it when we ate lunch in the garden on the lush lawn. The food was delicious and the service excellent. Then we enjoyed the tour of the caves and tasting. Highly recommend this experience.

We had a meal at the Taylor's Winery across the river and it was superb. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The port was first rate. Once the sun had set we had a lovely view across the river at Porto.

We came for the Port but stayed for lunch. We had no reservation but were able to be quickly seated outside at a shaded table. It is a peaceful terrace, with sounds of seagulls in the air, and an amazing view of the inlet of Porto. Service was attentive and the waiter was helpful with our selections. My son had... More

The best thing about this place is the terrace and the view of the city. The food was quite good, but not outstanding. We were there with a group and the service was prompt and efficient. We had leek soup followed by a salmon dish and then creme brulee with LBV port. It is located right next to Taylor's Lodge.... More

Dear Slhokie, Thank you for taking the time to give us your wonderful feedback. Every report is very valuable to us. The menu you tasted was a choice of the group so you could not taste other options that we are sure you would have loved. We do look forward to welcome you again in a near future. Yours truly...

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant last night. The view from the terrace is magnificent, even when it gets dark. The menu is quite extensive and we liked the sound of lots of dishes on the menu, however, the food when it arrived was very disappointing. My husband's starter of scallops and prawns was cold (it was... More

I was here with 10 friend's in end of April. Our travel agency recommended this place because of the spectacular view, and the nice food. The view is really very beautiful, but the food was very far from the very good. It was average, for example the meat was cold. The waiters were impolite, and their noses were very high.... More

We went to this restaurant because we were told the view is spectacular and the food was ok. The view is indeed very nice, but the food is by far too expensive for what you get! Even the daily dish costs about 18,5€ at least. The quality of the food you are served is not bad, but doesn't justify at... More
