We enjoyed an amazing evening meal in this restaurant. Our waiter, Ricard, was friendly, efficient, and fantastic in every way. The seafood was fresh, delicious, and plentiful. An exceptional value - It's a must stop if you're in Porto.

Great to have good food ie cod dishes - without smokers, screaming babies or competing singers ( such as offered on the waterfront) in a non touristy environment.
