Great Food and good Location

Even though one would think that this is a classical tourist trap due to its location, this restaurant is defiantly not and the food is just great and of top quality. When the weather is great it is just perfect to sit on the terrace and enjoy the views on the douro river.

Nice lunch with the kids. Food is from good quality and price is ok. Very friendly staff and nice view on Porto if you have a good weather. Food for kids was also good (two empty plates) and wine at a good price (11€/bottle)

Love the atmosphere of this restaurant and decor in the second and third floor. The food was good and we ordered different items. We ordered bread and a small basket with sliced bread was 3.75 euros- a little expensive for bread only! Everything else was reasonable! Service can be improved. Our waitress didn't smile or say much.

After a few hit and misses with food picks in Porto we came across this place. Seriously delicious food and service to match. We ordered the mixed red berry sangria, peixe alaska fish fillet (topped with potatos and vegetable gratin - with a delectable parmesan sauce) and the abril em paris (pear salad) and it was the best! Couldn't recommend... More

Not only that we had to wait ages for our meal and I have received my starter when my friend already got her second dish but the quality of the food was far far from being good. I have ordered fish which I had to dig out from the huge amount of breadcrumbs and the vegetables was not fresh (although... More

A group of us visited whilst sightseeing the day after a big Portguese wedding. The steaks were just perfect for our hangovers and we had a whole range of other Portuguese starters. My favourite was a goats cheese with almond and honey. I have since made this back at home. Wonderful place, lovely atmosphere and great outdoor seating, even on... More
