“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

Found this place through Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. Were lucky enough to walk in and get a great table upstairs. Our waiter, Ricardo, was a gem. Great energy and attitude. We asked for a wine recommendation and he knowingly just said, "I will bring you the perfect wine." And he did...Nardiz, I believe it was called. Shockingly for a mere 10 euros. Hubby and I both loved it. The house salad is fantastic. I had whitefish and hubby had baby goat. For dessert, Ricardo recommended the espresso and 3 dessert sampler. We, of course, listened and we're not disappointed. He also brought us a white port after as a gift. Much appreciated. Bill for 2, including bread appetizer, salad, bottle of wine, 2 entrees, and dessert (and port), was less than 60 euros.

“A Good Quality Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2014

A very warm welcome from friendly staff. We were seated quickly and we were pleased to find the tables are nicely distanced. Our Waiter presented the menu and gave us reasonable time to decide. On his return he took our order and gave us advice on suitable wine to accompany our selections. The cover charge included different breads and butter with olives. There was a decent interval before our Mains arrived which we noted as a proper time for our food to be freshly cooked. Our food was served and my Wife was almost overwhelmed by the quantity of her Cod whilst I was overwhelmed by the quality and taste of my Steak. The wine was a perfect accessory to our meal and we came away fully satisfied. The whole meal was beautifully cooked and presented and being sensibly priced, has encouraged us to revisit eLeBe next time we are in Porto.

“Nice! good quality/price ratio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We had such a lovely dinner tonight, the restaurant looks perfect with good ambience.

The service is spotless, dishes are all tasty!! And I enjoyed the local wine that the waiter recommended, whole bottle finished!!

Only it's bit salty for us, but it's not the chef's mistake coz Portuguese they maybe consume more salt than us.

Well done!

“Very nice restaurant in the city centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

We went to this restaurant during our two-day trip to Porto. The first night it was fully booked, but we managed to get a reservation for the next evening. It is a lovely place with excellent food and staff that give you information and recommendations about the menu. We had the cod and the octopus and both were excellent. The recommended 'branco' Monte da Peceguina was an excellent companion to the food. Prices are very affordable. All in all we had a very nice evening.
