“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We found this restaurant thanks to the advice from a friend who was staying across the street. Four of us ordered about half the menu for a tapas style meal. Every mouthful was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is one of a dinner party with close friends. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. Soooooo good!

“5 star restaurant!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Starter we shared the shrimp with garlic and it was perfectly cook each pieces well grilled. The meat tasted sweet and amazingly fresh .

Main we had the veal 14 euros big portion and octopus 14 euros big portion. Each details eg mushroom, spinach are being cooked with perfection! For desert we had fruits but it's was mixture of fresh figs, sweet pineapple and mango.

I would rate this restaurant 5 star and 10/10. Out of our 24 days Europe holiday , we never taste as good as this meal!! We have even spent more in other restaurant hoping for good meal. however Aurora is really up to its name !

“Wednesday evening in Porto7”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

This is a lovely restaurant with excellent food and service. For starters we had the stuffed mushrooms, the octupos and the peppers all of which were prefect in taste and proportion. Our main courses were the codfish with garlic sauce, and the veal. The veal was tender, succulent and delicious. The codfish and roast potatoes were cooked to perfection- the codfish was lovely, and the potatoes were crispy on the outside and floury on the inside. Desserts of orange cake and apple along with tawny port and the explanation of the love messages on the colourful tablecloth finished off a delightful evening. If you are in Porto enjoy great food here in a warm and welcoming restaurant.

“Aurora - A gem of a Restaurant in Porto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

It is very hard not to be charmed and delighted by this restaurant.
My wife and I were were made to feel very welcome from the start. There is a friendly family vibe about the place. Menus and appetisers quickly appeared. The cheese was was really good.
The menu is fairly extensive. It features typical Portugese cuisine. On the evening we dined at Aurora there was a special of fresh sea bass which we both ordered. There are few things better than fresh whole fish simply grilled and this was as good as it gets.
The service was helpful, happy and efficent.
The cost of the meal including drinks was an extremely reasonable 35 euros.
