We started off by ordering the olives, ham and corn bread. They brought over mushy olives, ham that had been sitting out and no corn bread. We randomly received a strange ball of cheese with part of the label still on it and white bread with butter (which is an extra charge on the menu). My girlfriend ordered a green... More

Good atmosphere and seemed full of locals watching Ronaldo playing for madrid on a small TV. Service was good. Food was very average. Straters were nothing speacial and we had tuna and cod for main and both were very overcooked. Large portions and reasonably cheap but had much better and cheaper in porto

we went to casa ado, after finding it on tripadvisor. Maybe we should have been warned by the latest review in October 2013. Anyhow, the place was no tidy at all, but the family next to us seemed to enjoy their meal. So we ordered the squid risotto and a tuna steak, and a shrimp omelette. After waiting for ages,... More

I only came in for a simple soup, but when I saw food arrive for another table, I knew I needed to try more of it. The octopus, the rice with cod and the seafood soup were among the best things I've tasted. The portions are also huge. I'm going back as soon as I can.

Family run restaurant, a pearl in this touristy street, an exception in comparison with other cafes that are impersonal and served by overworked and bored staff. Mainly frequented by locals, including some soap stars, food is abundant and cheap. We tried the local fried squids accompanied with rice and feijoada. Delicious, though a bit salty. I really liked the typical... More

This a good place popular by locals. Went there for lunch because of many locals, tightly packed place during the lunchtime, sometimes you have to wait for a table, friendly staff. I took fish soup, very good and golden fish, well done, good place to eat there, a bit too noisy, although. Good prices, but Novo Mondo has better quality... More

It was the best food I ate in Porto. I ate salad of octopus and my husband ate sardines. It was very very delicious. I recommended to drink “casa wine”. Staff was very friendly, helpful and kind.

My partner and I had lunch here while waiting for our 4:00 tour of one of the port wine lodges in Vila Nova de Gaia. We had no particular expectations, but the food knocked our socks off! We shared a dish of grilled octopus with garlic and olive oil. It came with potatoes, green peppers and cilantro. It was just... More
