“Dinner in 5 minutes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2010

We took the surprise menu. First of all it was made with cheap ingredients, it was served in a split second and the chef has really no social skills. Never go there again

“Nice place,chef lacking some serious social skills”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2009

Good food, nice place with an excellent view.But i certainly won't be coming back soon due to one thing:service.It was appalling.The waiters were friendly and professional,but sometimes the chef would come on over and serve and describe some of the dishes.He has no social skills whatsoever.When we inquired about the gravy of one of the game dishes his answer was "well,its the birds gravy" grinned and walked away.Very unpolite.
Then the duck magret came and even though it was tasty,it had a bit of fat(granted,it provides the taste) and it was impossible for us,with such a blunt knife, to cut a significant portion of the duck.His initial response was "oh,if its fat I'm afraid there is nothing i can do",but after some insistence he provided a sharper knife.Very high-brow, very unpolite.The place itself is classy and well decorated,but the service made me vow never to come back again.There are so many good restaurants worth visiting in Porto,but with this guy in charge sessenta setenta isn't one of them.

“Newave modern like many others in Porto....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2009

Newave modern like many others in Porto.... An expensive meal for what you get... Original food to the point of being quite weird. Combinations of flavors that are definitely experimental... Aside from that its a nice place with a very modern decor that is strict yet cozy. Nice view of the Douro river... If you must go... go at lunch.
