“Nice meal over the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

We had a nice lunch at Shis. We ordered some oysters and japanese gyosas, that were both good, and then moved to some sushi and tuna steak (excellent).
The view was great and the service correct except for some delay between starters and main dishes.
A god place to return to.

“Incredible view and an amazing dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went to this restaurant on our second night in Porto and cannot say we regret it. We had a fabulous dinner with tuna tataki, gyozas and crepes with shrimps followed by linguine with clams and shrimps and a salad with Pata negra ham.
We were so pleased that we came back two days after and had a similar breathtaking dinner.
The view is to die for with waves crashing against rocks in front of you and the restaurant furniture is modern and design. The staff spoke a good English and ensured we were pleased at all times.

There is no way you'll be disappointed by the place. It's our true favorite in the city!e

For the price: expect 80-100€ for 2 persons

“Worth finding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

What in the world is a Japanese / Portuguese fusion restaurant is doing down some stairs off a seaside promenade overlooking the crashing waves is beyond me – but thank goodness it is here and we found it! Having been advised to come here for lunch by the front desk staff at The Yeatman where we were staying as a great place to eat after journeying out to this point from the old city by restored tram we weren’t sure what to expect.
Fantastic choices of fish and seafood; prepared in a variety of novel ways. Our sushi / sashimi starters were exciting and different whilst our mains were equally intriguing.
Definitely worth the trip but as previously mentioned in other reviews – you do need to look hard to find it!

This is one of the best restaurants you can find in Porto. World cuisine, wonderful cocktails, caramel fondant is a-ma-zing!! A must try, also very good for business dinners.
