We visited Porto Cruz whilst in Porto for just 2 days and experienced a great port tasting session paired with chocolate. We sat outside with a great view of the river and bridge. The service was faultless by Rafael and he gave us an in-depth history of each port we tried. He was very professional and made our experience very seamless.
Would recommend to anyone!

We visited on a Tuesday afternoon in early October and it was a wonderful experience.

Rooftop restaurant and bars has wonderful views of the Douro river and the cities of both Porto and Gaia.

Temperatures were in the mid 20’s as we enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of drinks while enjoying the fantastic views.

Highly recommend as a place to enjoy the stunning views in a relaxed atmosphere.

My tasting coach, Rafael, delivered a wonderful experience! The pours were a bit generous, and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I was able to pick his brain more than the more general tours, and tasted some really lovely ports (8 in total). Highly recommend the tasting with 8 ports, and ordering the cheese pairing after. The cheese is delicious enough on its own. outside seating is beautiful. The rooftop bar is in a fun level all its own :)

We came only for the rooftop bar and cocktails made with port. It was an overcast day, but our final day and we were there.
Entry was easy. Just into the lobby and take the elevator to the top floor. The bar area is the open rooftop. There are lounge chairs and sofas or tables. There is some covering.
They have table service with a menu. I took the recommendation of our waiter and had the passionfruit cocktail. We were also served a small bowl of nuts.
The views are excellent. There was loud music and a crowd, but it was still pleasant. Everyone was in a good mood.
When it started to rain a sail opened up over the roof and we were set!
Very inexpensive and the view is excellent.

We went here as part of a trip we purchased which combined a boat trip and a port tasting. This isn’t Porto Cruz’s fault but they should not allow themselves to be associated with this package as the port tasting was just a sip of one port which when we expected a ‘tasting’ was really disappointing as most of the port houses provide a free tasting of multiple ports. We asked if we could upgrade and we couldn’t and well we felt pretty duped so just left.

Great experience in the restaurant. It was gpod we had reserved a table, because people were waiting in queue to come inside. The food was amazing and also the service. Not the cheapest, but it was worth it. In the end we had a drink on the rooftop terrace.

Had an amazing port tasting experience led by Rafael. We tried 4 different wines with 4 different chocolate pairings and it all tasted great. Rafael was incredibly knowledgeable and answered our questions with ease. Was also very affordable, would recommend this to anyone!

This new concept , brings visitors a modern approach to the typical winery visits. Porto Cruz cellars are located in the narrow streets of Gaia with difficult access to visitors so this new space facing the Douro river offers one of the best views in Porto from the top terrace beautifully decorated with modern and light furniture, where a selection of modern port cocktails is available - I tried the rosemary port tonic very refreshing for the summer but also the rosé or the classics.
The 3rd floor is the restaurant de Castro Gaia from well recognised chef Miguel Castro Silva. Worth a visit.

How can you taste and compare when the tasting experience includes 1 glass??
Ridiculous and a real scam😠

I was in Porto simply because I found a cheap round trip flight for my GF and I which had Porto as at arrival and departure point. This was going to allow me to get around the rest of Europe on the super cheap. I really had no expectations for the city and boy was I wrong. Just utterly and embarrassingly wrong. This city is amazing and the true highlight of my entire european vacation was at Porto Cruz. We stumbled in after looking to book a wine tour at the adjacent Sandeman (we were a little to late to get in). As we walked out I immediately noticed the Trip Advisor sign and thought we should give it a try. We were greeted by amazing people Ribiero and Anna (see them and tip them highly). It was incredible. Each of the wine tours you'll find in Porto will offer a good experience. But this one was a truly intimate experience. I much prefer it over the clamour of the group wine tasting experience. It was just Ribiero taking us through the flavours and it all just felt right. Both Ribiero and Anna were extremely welcoming to the point that we went back at the end of our trip just to see them and try out some more recommendations. That 2011 Vintage! or the 1971. Just go and ask and be amazed. I loved this wine tasting because we got to taste the premium wines to see if they were the ones we preferred. We left with let's just say several bottles. This is my favourite place to taste port wine. My favourite experience. When I return to Porto I will go back AGAIN and look for Ribiero and Anna. Thank you guys for making my first trip to Europe incredible
