I visited Camafeu after my partner suggested we try it, based on the reviews right here on Tripadvisor. After much wandering around in the rain, clueless of where we were and feeling a bit down, we arrived at the door. From the moment we walked in, my mood for the day was lifted to good to ecstatic.
I must be honest in my review of this restaurant. It was absolutely amazing. As hard as I tried, I could find no real fault or anything that could put me off this place.
From the moment we walked in the door of this beautiful former Antique store we were greeted with a friendly smile, delightful smells and a gorgeous little place.
I started with the Puff Pastry sausage, the perfect portion size for an appetizer. From the moment I tasted it, I could tell the entire meal would be glorious. The pastry had the perfect crunch, and the sausage itself was as smooth as you could hope, whilst bursting with flavour.
My main course, the Pork Cheek Confit, may have been as near to perfection as possible. I have eaten in hundreds restaurants (including a few Michelin rated places) across Europe, America and Australia, and have never really experienced such well prepared food, made so quickly and so succulent. The pork itself, almost melted like butter on my tongue, and I couldn't help but smile each time the mere suggestion of it came near my taste buds.
I finished on the Chocolate cake with Coconut and Chili Ice-Cream. My only wish for this was a tad more bite to chili ice-cream, but that's really a personal thing.
The cake itself was perfectly moist, again almost melting when it touched my tongue, filled with the most wonderful chocolate sauce (again, the perfect amount).
If you are anywhere near Porto, I can truly advise you visit Camafeu. It was only €70 for both 3 course meals, as well as the wines we enjoyed. The front staff were kind, happy and extremely helpful, and though I wish I could meet the Chef herself, I can only say they are lucky and privileged to have such an astounding person to make their meals.
