Very good small and delicious restaurant in Porto. Not huge menu (and this is very good), all dishes are excellent. Very good wine. Highly recommended. It worth while to book table in advance.

We stayed at a hotel in Puerto that was right next to the river. There were tons of riverside restaurants but we decided to walk around a little bit and in a small alley we saw this tiny restaurant with six tables under an awning...outside and a few tables inside. The place was packed. We were lucky to get an outside table and were happy to see a very quick service and a top quality dining experience. The fish we tried on two occasions grilled and fried sardines, the shrimp in garlic sauce and the kid roast, the veal chops and most notably their almond cake was phenomenal. We stayed in Porto two nights and both nights dined in a Grade. Wish we were there for more days for there were many other items on the menu we would have loved to try.More

This restaurant is hidden in the middle of a steep street up from Ribeira. Limited seating and menu but tasty food. We had the squid and fried sardines appetizers which were very good. The mixed salad was ok, all the salad components individually cut and...placed separately in a plate! For mains, we tried the grilled sea bass and grilled shrimps. The shrimps was very tasty, but the sea bass was just ok, small sized but fresh. Finally, we had the Portugese crème brûlée and lemon pie for dessert, both ok. Waiter was serious, but nice and helpful. Prices acceptable 70€ for all of the above including a glass of white wine and sparkling water. Recommended when looking for good seafood in Ribeira area.More

We had a dinner and we ordered some cheese , piece of bread, olive oil and olives. Afterwards we ordered a codfish named: Bacalhau A’grade, which was with tomato, pepper, potatoes and olive sauce. The dish was not as hotter as we expected but it...was ok. A few hours later me and my husband started with gastrointestinal symptons, chills, malaise and made us stay in bed for the whole next day! It completely ruined our last day in Porto! My advise: dont go to this restaurant. I’m pretty sure the cheese or some ingredientes in the main course were not fresh or bad conditionated.More

Came here as a group of 8 and were thankful they could fit us in. Prices were reasonable but food very average. Grilled octopus and the octopus in green sauce appetiser were good, but a bit bland. Cabbage and potato soup was fine but bland....Daughter did not like the fried octopus. Pig cheeks were ok. Overall meh.More

このレストランはポルトでタコご飯とフライドタコを提供してくれる非常に少ないレストランの一つです。私はポルトのこのようなレストランを探していました。A Gradeは期待通りでした。タコご飯とフライドタコは最高でした。スタッフはフランス語を話し、感じが良かったです。それに値段は手ごろです。私はこのレストランをお勧めします。 This is one of only a few restaurants which serve the octopus rice and flied octopus in Porto. I had looked for such a restaurant in Porto. A Grade was as expected.The octopus rice and flied octopus were excellent !! The staffs speak...French and agreeable. And the price was reasonable. I recommend this restaurant.More

We ate dinner at A Grade twice in October 2021. We had grilled sardines, olives, and cheese starters. Pork cheeks, baked cod, grilled veal cutlet, salads, house green, red and white wines, lime tart and chocolate mousse--quite a variety over the course of two meals....The food and wines were excellent, the service was busy but very friendly. The desserts are good too, but we could have skipped them. The real winners are the appetizers and dinners, especially the fish. I would love to return to A Grade.More

Had really good seabass and grilled sole but the service was so unfriendly. Our waiter made an unpleasant comment about me being the boss of the couple. Bill was thrown on the table. Prices were high for Porto.
