My husband and I had the most incredible experience at this restaurant. From the Port tonic, which is the best I have had so far to the desserts that were so beautiful to look at and even more delectable to eat! The owner definitely takes pride in every plate that is served and is concerned with each clients likes and... More

While it is quite a way to go from central Porto (maybe 10km) the trip is really worthwhile. If food-as-theatre is your thing then this will delight you. Barnacles in real rocks, liver pate as a chocolate, 'soft eggs' in a real hen's nest and so on. And all very tasty with real depth and complexity of flavour. At first... More

From the moment you walk in the door till you're done you get a lovely culinary experience. Menu is short but varied, Chef Extras quite delicious and very satisfying, variety was amazing, it hit the pallet every time. All in all, food was great, service was spot on, and the whole experience was well worth it.

We recently had a meal here for less than 300 euros (for two) which I think ranks amongst the best value meals I've ever had at a restaurant. This place is excellent. Really excellent. From the welcome by the staff to the waiting area for drinks to the care taken over the drinks themselves (angostura bitter flavoured ice? Get in... More

The location may be innocuous (a suburb near the FC Porto stadium) but the meal and the service are second to none. Whichever menu you choose (we choose the middle option) you will be treated excellent high-end food, and service that quickly identifies what kind of attention you want. Yes it's more than you would pay at most other restaurants... More

This place is really really pretentious, and dramatically uncomfortable. We managed to secure a reservation, given all the reviews on trip advisor which appear to glorify this establishment. The location is miles away from central Porto, so you will need a taxi to get there and back. The dining room was good looking and formal but cozy. The food on... More

There really are no words for how amazing this place is. Totally lives up to its reputation. It's out the burbs so you need to take a taxi, uber, or metro and then 20 min walk but it's worth it!

Actually, my wife and me went to this restaurante with low expectation. But when I checked the enviroment out, I could see the things would be quite different. Starting off with wine list, despite being very comprehensive for Portugal wines in vintages and growers, the pricing is pretty good. The service both for wine and for food was very good... More
