If you like fusion then by all means, this is the Sumo to go to. It's got a wide range of dishes to choose from - both traditional and fusion - and also... one of my personal favourites (when done properly): teppan yaki! Save up for this, it's well worth it. The space is very nice and you can definitely... More

I love the location, amazing views. Its a romantic and quiet place. The shushi is the best. I've been in many sushi restaurants in porto city but this restaurant in my opinion is the best.

Although we love Portuguese cuisine, if can become somewhat "typical". If you enjoy Japanese food and a great location, then try Sumo Cais. We have had our fare share of Sushi over the years and can say with confidence this is a good sushi restaurant worth a try. It can be a little pricey due to the location but the... More

Great ambience over looking the river . Try the prawns and butter fish on the Tepanyaki and you will love it.

Sumo Cais is located at Vila Nova de Gaia's marine. It has external tables with a nice view to the Douro river, although the exterior is not particularly confortable in very cold days. Having tried a lot of different sushi places in Porto (4 in total) Sumo Cais definitely delivered the best quality sushi and tempura. They have assorted sushi... More

We stumbled across this restaurant during an evening across the river. We wnt in and had a lovely view across the River Douro. I can say that both the food and the service were excellent, and we were even tempted by desert. The menu was varied and raw fish or meat could easily be avoided if its not for you.

My japanese friends ctrongly recommended me to try japanese cuisine in Portugal but it turned out complicated to find such a restaurant in Porto. So, we spent lots of time searching but our efforts were rewarded. Must try is butterfish! It's sooo delicious.. Not much people there and that is another merit.

Me and my boyfriend went to Sumo Cais on Valentine's Day and we were disappointed. At the time of the reservation we specifically asked if there would be a fixed menu or it would be à la carte. We were told à la carte and when we arrived to the restaurant it was a fixed menu. Service overall was not... More
