Fantastic sea bass with prawns and coriander rice. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Dry, full-bodied Portuguese red. Yes, I did not choose a white wine as is customary to many for fish. In any case, a wonderful dinner.

We found this restaurant by chance as it was close to our hotel. It is small and reservations are suggested. They were full the first night but we ordered a sausage and cheese board with olives to take back to our room. What a great...surprise! Sausages warm, great cheese selection, and plenty of olives and pickles. We called and made a reservation for the next night. The octopus and boar tenderloin were great. Soup and dessert equally good. It was one of the best meals we had in three weeks in Portugal. It is a family run restaurant with friendly service and great food at a reasonable price. You won't be disappointed.More

Best octopus dish I ever had, perfectly cooked (which I cannot say of other restaurants sampled in Porto). Small restaurant, seats 20; we were very lucky to be accommodated without reservation - what would we have missed! Modern, simple decoration, Service is friendly and personable,...great choice, reasonably price, excellent food. Very different from the tourist traps we have also come across.More

Enjoyed a delicious meal with my husband just now. Shared the sardine bruschetta starter (how could we leave Portugal not having sardines!). Wonderful. Main courses: Boar for him - very tasty; fish of the day for me (Sea bass) - amazing. No room for dessert...sadly, but shall return. Fabulous.More

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. It was easy to book unlike a few other restaurants we tried to no avail. We had about 5 small dishes to sample the Portuguese food and it was really good with some amazing authentic flavours. Staff were multilingual...and really accommodating. Great restaurantMore

Very nice and popular restaurant. Lovely dishes, would have liked that my stomach was big enough to taste more than the ones we had. They were accompanied by a great vinho verde. I can highly recommend this restaurant

Saw recommendation in Rick Steve's book for Droop so went there and had a great dinner on 9/16. It was so good that we went a second time on 9/23 when we got back to Porto. Again, great food, with options of small plates or...full dinner. Loved the stew of mushrooms and beans, the sardine bruschetta, and prawns with garlic. Linguini nero was also great. So many great choices. Inexpensive and great. Wait staff were really friendly and helpful. Passed it on to others in our small travel group and they loved it too.More

Highly recommended. The food is Portuguese but with some twists that differentiate it and elevate it to a level way beyond what you would normally expect vat this price point. That, coupled with excellent service from a wonderful group of staff make this a restaurant...not to be missed if visiting Porto.More

I enjoyed a good 3-course meal and wine, and friendly service, at this restaurant. It is a great pity that the restaurant is on such a busy road: traffic noise is all too apparent.

We were only in Porto for 2 nights after travelling North Portugal for a week but had seen this place suggested on Facebook and we were certainly not disappointed. The food was delicious! We shared the camembert and sausage croquettes to start and then for...mains had the cod fish and wild boar -.which was divine- really tasty and tender. The puddings were to die for - we shared the chocolate brownie with salted caramel sauce and orange ice-cream and the chocolate mousse (0 sugar!! - ) All washed down with good wine and great service. Would definitely go back if in Porto again - made a great change from the normal menu you see if each restaurantMore
