“The best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2011

In my opinion that's the best restaurant in Porto because the chef makes a natural blend between portuguese cuisine and new flavours obtaining an excelent result, very tasteful and also beautifull to see.

“Welcome to pleasure temple”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

It was a true and fantastic food experience. The starter was a cod cheeck, then a small beff seasoned with special sauce, then a desert based on orange. To drink I have choosen Port wine and a late harvest. Pefect dinner for a night redescovering the fine places in Oporto.
I do recomend. But if you can bring someone, it will be better

“Good food but the service ruins the experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2011

Good food, good ambiance but the service is bad (the girl who does the recepcion is professional but the two waiters that do table service are unprofessional and rudes).
What could be a good experience is ruined by the unfrendly and unprofessional service.
