Description: WELCOME. BIENVENUE. WILCOMEN. BIENVENIDOS. BENVENUTTI. After two years of hard work, you´ll find a homey and unique 19th century place, just in front of River Douro. Quiet, welcoming and rustic. Where wine and food are the excuse to forget the world, and to enjoy the moment. Tasting wines and eating excellent Portuguese food, in a relaxing environment, with selected music.Our aim is to make you feel at home. An open kitchen where we love what we do to whom we do. About 100 Portuguese wines (15 by the glass). A Wine and Grocery store where one can buy the best artisan jams and biscuits, as well as the wines in the list. Far from confusion, protected and exposed, we do an ODE to the Wine, to the city, and to the consumer.

“Went back for the surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Had a wonderful experience. So good the first night we went back a second night to try the desert 'surprise'. Loved our main courses tried the pork loin which was one of the best pork we have had. The lamb curry which had a great spiciness to it, and the veggie dish did not disappoint. The owner was so kind that he sat with us explaining the restaurant and his own history and provided some excellent recommendations for the wine country of Portugal to which we were headed. The recomendations have yet to disappoint. A highlight to our trip.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

A five star experience; from the food to the ambiance.

Less than 8 tables with a small kitchen makes the place very intimate. Also prepare to meet the owner at the end who genuinely cares about his customers.

“interesting place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Portugese cuisine is not exactly what I would long for. However, we ordered pig cheeks and were pleasantly surprised. Would recommend this place.

“sublime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

My husband and I went to Ode for out wedding anniversary meal after seeing the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor and because it was next to our hotel. It did not disappoint. It was wonderful on every level and the owner came to have a chat with us at the end of our meal and very kindly took photographs which he emailed immediately. All the staff go the extra mile to make the experience unforgettable. A truly memorable occasion.

“Mind blowing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

I count myself as a fairly accustomed client of good restaurants, (albeit not part of the guide Michelin crowd) and this place knocked my socks off. Somewhat hard to find, hard to get a table and not at all cheap, but worth every cent. The expression of bliss on my girlfriends face when she tasted her beef was priceless (I honestly felt slightly jealous) and mine wasn't close behind when I tried the pork. And don't even get me started on the surprise desert. The host is caring on the border of intense but any mixed feelings you might have will quickly fade away once you try the food he brings. Anyhow it's worth a detour in my book.
