This is a great small restaurant run by a family. The octopus was excellent, it was cooked beautifully with tons of flavor and very tender. The fish was super fresh, and the wine lovely. Caesar helped us with the menu since we don't speak Portuguese and everything was delicious. I would eat here again.

We came here on our first day in Porto this summer. Straight from the airport for a late lunch. We had bolinhos de bacalhau, grilled sardines and dourada (with potatoes and vegetables), accompanied by the excellent house wine. Lovely place with a nice vibe.

A small and intimate restaurant that was a wonderful experience. Complete with a special tasting at the completion of the meal. Caesar and his family are delight. Check out the red phone.

Went to various places around Porto but the grilled sardines were so yum. Octopus was lovely and the prawns were very good. The service was excellent. Definitely book though as very hard to just turn up and get a seat. Very lovely and nice place. Recommend you have a bite here.

Nice family owned restaurant serving Portuguese food. We went for lunch after visiting the Igreja de Sao Francisco which is just over the road. We had grilled sole and pork and they were both delicious. Friendly service, complimentary glass of Port was a nice was to round off.

Just had a great meal with the family, which is a wife and two adult boys. Had fantastic starters, house bottle of wine and fish, octopus and pork loin. We all left extremely satisfied with service and quality. Highly recommend it.

We had lunch here today and it was overall a positive experience. We were trying to avoid the total chaos of the main tourist area, and this place was perfectly convenient with out being right in the mess of it. Our server was attentive throughout the meal and extremely willing to help and answer questions. We arrived early in the... More

Worth booking in advance to be sure of a table here. We went here last October and returned knowing that the food would be great. It's small, unfussy and traditional with great, friendly and helpful service. Starters of baccalau croquettes and a tapas portion of octopus, served with a choice of rustic breads and a glass of local white wine... More

Great food and nice service. The restaurant is not so big but located in a nice small street. The fish was fresh and desserts were also amazing! The fish salad and the lime cake were my favourites! Don't miss to try this place!

We loved this restaurant. The food was just excellent. On the pricy side but very satisfying. We didn't have reservation but waited only 30 and didn't regret our decision coming in this restaurant. The owner served the food himself and the workers are great with children. We ordered the cabbage soup, cod fish, octopus and they are out of this... More
