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

Reception in the doorway and service all the way. The food was tasty and well prepared. For someone in the group it was too red meat and it was fixed in a short while. Well done

Our group of five had spent the previous evening enjoying the many sights, smells and taste of the Ribeira and decided we would walk across the Ponte Dom Luis I bridge to explore Vila Nova de Gaia-surely with all the port houses on the river bank we could find a restaurant to satisfy our diverse tastes. What we found was... More

Just opposite of the river and ancient quarter of Ribeira. The roofterrace in summer is great as well as the view from it. Food is average. Not to bad, not to great. Because of the location, try it.
