“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended this street of restaurants for its seafood and choose this on the fly. We had the portuguese tripe, sardines, salad, potatoes, two glasses of wine, a coke and two complementary ports. It was a great taste sensation.

“Nice seafood, great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

The seafood was fresh and delicious! Fish was great, and was grilled just right! Soft and tasty. The only one minus point is the price. Yet it is still worth if you want to have a big meal.

“Charming restaurant, outstanding hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Nino, the chef and Bruno, who grilled the fish for us were simply amazing! Very nice, friendly atmosphere, one of the best restaurants and service I ever experienced in my life!
A great selection of meals, excellent, fresh fish right out of the ocean (actually, Bruno catches the fish that he then grills in front of your eyes!), excellent wines and really really good service!

I can only recommend it to anyone who is looking for a pleasant dinner!

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We spend an unforgettable evening at the Palato near Porto, it is very near to a wonderful beach and so really worth the detour, I recommend the fresh fish! Service is wonderful; a place to go when visiting Porto or its surrounding.

“Tasty meal in a contemporary atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

We enjoyed a lovely traditional small plates meal at this attractively decorated Restaurant. Our host Nuno greeted us warmly and suggested a variety of small plate dishes to give us a little taste of various regional specialties. The servers were very attentive and the Chef even checked on our satisfaction with the sumptuous meal of seafood, vegetable and meal dishes. We particularly enjoyed the palate cleanser of sherbet & black vodka before our dessert.
