A beautiful setting on the terrace with views across the river to Porto. The food was reasonable but let down by slow service from taking orders to long gaps between courses.

Where to start? We booked the day before and confirmed with the staff that we would like to sit outside to enjoy the view. On the afternoon we arrived there wasn't anyone to greet us nor confirm our booking. Instead we were rushed outside and they slapped a table together. We were handed some menus and then the staff made... More

We had a quite disappointing experience with this highly recommended restaurant. The had goat cheese with honey and walnut, what was very nice, but hey, who can mess up a goat cheese with honey. Than we had duck breast and steak wich was both disappointing. The meat without taste, the side orders, spinach and beans just hot water boiled, no... More

I liked this restaurant, the food, the enviromment, the personnel. Outside you have a dramatic view of Porto city. The average price is 35€ per person, all included, starters, main course, wine, dessert, and expresso.

Very nice view from the terrace. But restaurant is just a huge room with big tables and seems to be booked mainly by groups afther having a cellar visit. Food was average.

Lunch there yesterday didn't start well, - we'd reserved an outside table earlier in the day but were met by blank looks from the staff. A number of starters including my choice were unavailable so my wife and I shared a dish of stuffed peppers, which I must say were excellent. After the starter the waiter brought our wine -... More

We booked the restaurant as we booked the tour of the Port House. What a good idea that was. The food was first class, including lobster salad and first class fish courses. The service and the attention of our waiter with a great sense of humour added to the experience and the views from the balcony over the Douro river... More
