Amazing view, very nice service, terrible food

Although there are very good things, like the view, and the waiters, who are very nice, the food is really not very good here at all. I think it is overly elaborate and yet not really modern. They have not decided whether they want to do traditional food, or something else, and they fall in between... read more

Dear RobinLee1, Thank you for sharing your experience. Your comments about the food were reported to our Chef, usually our clients (nearly 20000 / year) really appreciate what we have in the menu. Regarding the wine list which is largely enough, we provide an impressive list of Vintages and Tawnies from the companies of the group, as listing all the... More

The food was really good and the service was even better! The only negative I can point at was the music, it clearly did not fit the mood of the restaurant.

Since we dined here on the evening of the firm's Christmas party, it might be somewhat unfair to review the restaurant, given that we were virtually the only outside guests and seated in a separate part of the restaurant. Having said that, we had an excellent dinner that encourages us to return for another meal under more conventional circumstances.

The Port tour is well worth a visit. However the lunch was really the highlight. Ask for a seat overlooking the terrace and a view across the river. One of us had the dish of the day. This was a large slow cooked piece of veal. The other two had a chicken and pasta dish and a mushroom risotto. Service... More

Excellent view, good location, professional service, but the fish soup could have a little more substance (it was too "liquid"), and maybe the steak could be a little less raw (and I like raw). Despite this the food was still good.

A cool space, but a very big open space, with lack of privacy. Good apetisers and deserts. A great view over Oporto.

In terms of a gastronomic experience it is not the best decision one could make, although that the view from the restaurant is excellent.

Not only the view was magnificent but also the food was delicious. Connected to the Taylor Port Tasting a nicely decorated building with places for inside and outside dining. Very good food with a high standard. A bid more expensive but still very reasonably priced when compared with other European cities.
