The staff were very helpful, the food was simple, but very good and good value, with also a decent selection of wines. We started outside, but then the rain forced us inside and the staff were most accommodating. Great place to stop off for lunch.

We had a dinner there yesterday. It was amazing-we had a plate with sea food and grilled octopus. They also brought a starter immediately after we sat. Delicious!!

The location is friendly, they have a nice terrace to enjoy the view. The food was good, for all tastes. It is a custom in Portugal restaurants to have you pay the starters they put on the table without asking! But we already knew that. At the end, when the bill came, the sum was exceeding with 30 Euros the... More

Decent location overlooking the river. The nibbles they bought (as soon as we sat down) accounted for nearly 30% of the final bill! (bread, olives and a sticky cheese dish). We were not informed that there would be a charge. May well have accepted them if told but soured the whole experience. Service good if a little over effusive. Had... More

I fully recommend this restaurant. When we got there they immediately brought bread, olives and gratinated feta cheese which was delicious. We ordered then a half bottle duas quintas red wine which was excellent and a bruschetta of tomatoes and cheese and fish in a cream gravy. The service was very good and very professional and the view onto porto... More
