We had dinner there. The service was good even though we ate there at night (some restaurants are very good for lunch but terrible serving dinner). The food was ok, nothing especial, but it was not bad!!

Excellent Service, great food, magnificent scenario with a great view to Douro River. They have a great rooftop balcony were you can have a nice view of the river and to watch one of the best sunsets. Food is excellent - the octopus and the codfish is excellent

We visited here twice during our stay in Porto, All the staff were charming and nothing was too much trouble. We really wanted a table at the very top of the restaurant because of the views; after waiting a short time they cleared some tables and we were able to enjoy our meal with excellent views of the Doura.

This is right in the touristy area by the river on the port wine cave side of the Douro. However, Rabelos did a great job of making the restaurant

I have been to Rabelos more than once and have been satisfied with every experience. The staff are friendly, the food is great and the decor is pretty. As a person who has trouble finishing a dish on her own, I love that they give the option to choose a plate for two persons. You can order a bacalhao plate... More

Stopped here on a rainy day after touring a couple of Port lodges. The service was quick with bread and olives on the table. (remember you are charged only if you eat them) my Paella was excellent as was my wife's ravioli and our daughters Lombinho. Very friendly staff and good food. 43 euro for 3 dinners, appitizers and soft... More
