    Sono stato a Porto dopo una gita per la città ci è venuta la voglia di fare una degustazione del loro vino in particolare re le sue caratteristiche abbiamo deciso di bere del porto Calem , direi fantastico. Locale casa do galo offre tante possibilità di scelta è possibile fare varie degustazioni. Consiglio di fare tappa

    Nice Wine tasting
    Nice cellars with a big variety of wines.. We tasted almost every wine from the catalogue. I personally prefered the Porto cruz white! And the Graham's!

Bad experience at this place, which looks fancy outside but is a tourist trap.
- Poor service : Staff and management unfortunately do not care about customers. We have received food in different times so able to feed one child while the other waited more than 30mn for the rest. Asked for napkins and it was never brought to us after three people heard me asking for that! Asked for food twice and none apologised for the delay.
- Food: Fish balls were mostly made of potatoes so definitely overpriced; toast was poorly made.See the pic. Half of toasts options were not available. Received wrong drink after confirming twice before submitting the order!
- Cleaning: toilet was extremely dirty. Saw one kitchen staff going inside to fix something and the returning to the kitchen area.
Avoid at all cost.

We visited Casa Do Galo on the first night of our stay in Porto. We tasted some different ports paired with a cheese and meats board which was very tasty. We enjoyed it so much there that we went back the following evening for more port paired with dark chocolate this time. The same waited served us both evenings and he was very pleasant.

A short but sweet review. We came here on our first night in Porto on a ten-day stay and enjoyed it so much, we became regulars. Lovely and knowledgable staff, you can do wine and port tastings and although we didn’t have the food, it also looked decent. Well worth a stop to escape the heat or on your way to or from a port cave.

Had a couple of ports (not a flight) and some light lunch. Was really nice and a cool place to sit and watch the World go by. Really surprised to read some of the reviews here, not our experience at all.

We stopped off here after seeing other customers enjoying flights of port, it looked very inviting....so, we found a table. We were given a menu which offered different tasting packages, with different varieties of ports. We chose the one we wanted and then the 3 ports were presented beautifully. The bottles were left on the table for us to take photos. The staff were really helpful and friendly and very attentive, the ports were lovely and we enjoyed the time to sit back and relax and watch the world go by.

The wines were bland,watered down with an unpleasant after taste; the almonds had no flavor. I would not return ever. Tourist trap.

14 euro for a few slices of "cured" ham. Totally overpriced tourist scam! If you just want to drink water or a soft drink, this place is ok. Otherwise don't go here.

Absolutely great port wine tasting, they even leave the bottles out for a little bit so you can really see what you're tasting. Also very reasonable prices for the amount/quality of wine you get. Our server was absolutely lovely, super sweet, and spoke very good english. The outside seating area was very nice, and since there aren't many chairs, very relaxed and pretty quiet.

Lovely spot on for a port tasting. Service was excellent and we really enjoyed the port. We tried a couple of different tasting menus while we watched the world go by.

Just not very good. First impression d were okay, then-
Ordered drinks and some snacks.
Asked for calimari- they had none. Ordered olives- never got them.
Asked for a glass of white Port- they don’t do white Port by the glass, only the bottle- in a Port wine specialist?
Then there was cleanliness- toilets bins were overflowing with paper towels, which could only have been from the night before. There were no clean ones. Oh, and waiter was none too fresh either
