This is a small family run restaurant. Chef is very nice and explains each and every dish and makes sure she understands what you want. We went with fish pastel de nata, corn bread fish, the famous Bacalhau a bras and they were all delicious....You might have to queue up but it is worth the wait.More

Small boutique hole in the wall restaurant, one of the few Portuguese restaurants in the vicinity that we found. A queue forms before opening hours, which you need to join at least 30 minutes before opening time if you want the opportunity to try their...fabulous food when they open, otherwise it’s about a 40-60 minute as guests finish their meals. The restaurant consists of 14 covers internally and ~6 covers externally. The food has great taste and texture, with the pork cheeks being so tender and flavoursome with a slight spicy kick at the end, the service was impeccable, being tourists we wanted to try everything but they assured us that there would be enough food and suggested alternatives that would be similar. All in all, a superb experience. This restaurant is not for those who are in a rush, the relaxed pace is a nice change to the hustle and bustle of a busy city. I highly recommend that you give the visit 2 hours.More

Voltaria offers good small plates at a reasonable price. At our visit we had six dishes and each was very tasty. We are fans of pork cheeks and Voltaria serves a delicious version. Service was excellent. The restaurant was out of the wine we selected...so our server brought three bottles to sample before we made our choice. Although this is a small six table restaurant, we never felt rushed. The combination of good food and service makes Voltaria a great choice in central Porto. Be aware the restaurant is very small and popular. They do not take reservations so be prepared to come when it opens or wait in line for a table.More

Big turnoff from the 1 hour wait although we made a smart decision to purchase a bottle of red wine inside and took it outside under the pouring rain.. that made the whole wait a lot better. Once inside you realize that with only 5...tables it all made sense since they don't have much space at all. I don't usually queue to eat in a restaurant and 1hr wait is something I just don't even consider.. however the food was up to my expectations and it is a place I totally recommend. It is worth the wait.More

The voltaria is a small (5 tables) but fine restaurant. As so often in porto, you have to make a reservation to get a seat here. I would gladly give more than 5 stars. The food was amazing and so are the prices. The tapas...are cheap but taste just fantastic. Here everything is still cooked and freshly prepared. The main course was also a dream. The portions are large and make you full. In terms of taste and quality, this restaurant plays in the highest league. The waitress was super friendly and helpful. You could also joke with her a little. Very competent. As mentioned above, the price-performance ratio is top. If you visit Porto, you should definetly visit this restaurant .More
