Loved this little place...we had intended to go to nearby Rua Tapas but it was closed and stumbled across this place and we were glad we did. My husband and I shared tapas (3 dishes is enough between two) and they were all excellent. Our waitress Magda was so friendly and helped us in choosing a nice wine from the... More

The dinner was nice ... however the price was too much. They charge every piece of bread and oil :( The waiter could use a fresh bath

This is a lovely neighborhood outdoor cafe on one of the squares. Our waiter Marco was terrific in helping us order. We tried for the first time a fantastic drink on a warm day - white port and tonic- how refreshing! We shared three different tapas: a glazed goat cheese, a fried polenta with a tomato sauce for dipping and... More

We were in Porto for the day & came here for lunch after seeing part of the city. I had the Fried Polenta with some kind of sauce. It wasn't anything great. It looked more like bread, in fact bread would have tasted much better than this. For the mains I had the grilled golden bream with veggies which was... More

The choice in main dishes aside from pizza was very limited. The meat was fried to hard, there were only 3 asparagus as vegetables on plate and the dishes were too expensive for the offered quality. No wifi. The bread came with olive oil and you had to pay 1,5€ for the bread but another 1,5€ for the oil this... More
