Located on the major drag minutes from the Hotel Infantes Sagres, this spot which was a walk in with no expectation late lunch option is worth a visit. Attached to a smart Hotel but with the advantage of street access it is clearly popular with both residents and passers by like us. We ordered the House Hamburger, which didn't look... More

Very good restaurant in great location, Liberty Square. We went there on the third night we were in Porto for dinner and were so delighted with the food and service we decided to return the next night. Unfortunately although the first night the atmosphere was excellent and the restaurant very busy the next time, being a Friday evening, when they... More

This is a centrally located restaurant in a busy part of town. The waiters (all dressed a sailors!) are very friendly and provided very efficient service. The food was tasty and well presented and beer was reasonably priced. We didn't order wine with the meal, because we wanted a change! Overall an enjoyable evening and if we visit Porto in... More

I had read that this cafe has the same owners as the Majestic Cafe, so I had high expectations. Unfortunately, the service was poor and the food terrible. The cafe itself is very large but was mostly empty when we arrived, but the service was poor and we were ignored until we were able to wave down a waiter for... More

During our recent long week-end in Porto, my wife and I had Dinner at this city center Restaurant one evening; and although the place has a nice ambiance, the food overall is quite average. Both my wife's tenderloin of Pork and my Fillet of Sea Bass were well presented but quite overcooked. As for the dessert, the Tart was good... More

We were starving when we stumbled into Cafe Guarany and the staff took great care of us. They even let us sample a couple of wines before we decided which ones to order. We had a delicious tuna pate, caldo soup and then a salad and a sandwich. Everything was fresh and delicious. I definitely recommend having a meal here.

The daily specials are excellent value. Go on a Thursday for a wonderful fish and seafood stew. The almond tart was memorable too. Unobtrusive but entertaining live music on some evenings (e.g.traditional fado).
