We visited soMos on our last night in Porto - and it became the highlight of our trip! From the first second Crispin - our waiter- was there for us , helping with choosing the best dishes, recommending excellent wine and providing a 5 star...service. The food was amazing - the best steak I’ve had in years. The cauliflower purée is to die for! And at the end we got a special surprise on the house which only enhanced the excellent experience! Thank you - we will definitely come back again!More

We were lucky this place was right next to the Sheraton. After two busy days we ate dinner here. The Salmon and Veal Steak were both delicious. Nice wine list. Great service.

We had a wonderful moment Despite the confinement during the weekend , all the team was at the top and amazingly careful !!!! Special note to the trilingual manager who was speaking French English and Portuguese we unfortunately did not ask his name , but...we did invite him in Seychelles !!! Was a big pleasure to meet you Sir. The food was very good may be a bit long , so don’t eat to much bread while awaiting for it , but except that it was all great. The Sunday brunch is a must try , really affordable and many choices.More

We visited this restaurant for lunch just after checking into the Crowne Plaza and enjoyed the service so much, we returned every night for dinner for our entire stay. The food and the service were outstanding. My friend's favorite was the Caprese salad and the...mushroom risotto. I liked the Piri Piri chicken and sauteed vegetables (which are grown onsite) All of the servers were outstanding and friendly. Our favorite was Crispim who greeted us every time and kept the Vinho Verde coming. The prices are of good value.More

My husband, son & I ate here in July for an evening meal during the Covid-19 period. There were very few people in the Restaurant, which is sad to see as it is a really nice place, however understandable during the current climate. From beginning...to end, we were very well looked after and treated almost as friends. Not over the top, but in between courses, we chatted to the two guys serving. Nothing was too much trouble. We had a wonderful wine recommended and the food was fantastic. This Restaurant really deserves to do well and I hope things pick up for them once lockdown is fully lifted as they made a huge effort for us. I know people might say that it's easy to make an effort for a few customer's, but we went to Spain after Portugal and some of the staff there couldn't have cared less if you were there or not.More

Really good food, didn’t wait long for order to be taken or for the meal to be served. Warning; it’s a jazz trio on a Saturday evening, incredibly intrusive. So a star lost for that. And a second star lost because, another diners’s bill was...presenter to us almost as soon as our main meal was cleared. How could that happen.More

Wonderful food, great service, nice atmosphere. All spoilt by loud intrusive ad lib jazz - there may be those that enjoyed it.....we didn’t.

Staying in the hotel itself, always a little cautious with regard to using the restaurant in an evening as it’s nice to explore. WOW... what a fabulous experience and meal, it did take us a while to understand the sharing concept but it was fully...explained by experienced staff, however you can just choose individual meals. The wine was a perfect accompaniment as suggested by the wine waiter, in fact we ended up having another bottle later in the bar/bistro. Overall, perfect food, wine, service and ambiance, would highly recommend and exceptionally reasonable prices. P.S. the hotel is just as good.More

Nice place, very nice food but as usual with hotels, it's overpriced. But since the Crown Plaza is on Boavista Avenue, you can find better value for money around.

We visited as a family group of four, to celebrate my grandson's 10th birthday, and were very happy with the restaurant which is located inside the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Service was excellent throughout - friendly and attentive. Menu variety was very good and my daughter...was particularly pleased to find a variety of items that were both vegetarian and gluten-free. As we attended on a Thursday evening, the nightly specials were sushi and gin cocktails. For appetisers, we had a couple of salads, the ceviche and the veal carpaccio, all of which were well presented and in sizeable portions. Our grandson wanted the sushi for his main course but is rather particular regarding the type of sushi that he will eat. The waiter took the information and even brought a single roll in advance, to be sure that it met his approval (a nice touch). The rest of us chose grilled veal with side dishes, grilled salmon and a mushroom and beet risotto that all met with our approval. Our drinks were varied, including some wine, cocktails and some port. All good. And for dessert, the waiter surprised us with a small cake with a candle in it. A nice ending to a very pleasant family dinner.More

Need I say more? Talking about the small (but mighty) bar that sits just off the main lobby of the Crowne Plaza Boavista. Amazing spirits selection. Well crafted cocktails. Friendly and knowledgeable bartenders. Good spot all the way around!
