You might be put off by the very plain look of the restaurant interior. It really doesn't look cozy and the only reason we went inside was that we couldn't find any other place in the rain. However the more we were surprised by the quality of the food! Forget trying to seek the best francesinha, this is the place... More

A well selected, high quality menu. Not a lot of dishes but each bite is exquisite! By far the best food we had in our 10 days in Portugal. Highly recommended if you appreciate good food.

We had a lovely meal. Not over whelmed by too much choice. Staff helpful and pleasant. Value for money. Situated on a quiet, pretty square (triangle).

Went here upon advise of collegue but we expected more. Atmosphere is great and service is very friendly but not efficient. Aperodrink took some time and when it finally came, the chosen wine for our courses came as well. . The terracetable became quiet too small all of a suddon. . Starter (grilled gambas) missed it sauce. Price/quality : there... More

The interior of this restaurant was simple and plain. From the outside we didn't expect much. We picked this restaurant mainly due to the tripadvisor reviews. However the food really surprised us. We ordered their octopus and duck confit, along with soup and wine. The food was really good and yet only €12-13 a dish. The soup is only €2.5.... More

The restaurant displays an inviting spirit which is both simple and elegant. The menu is selective but offers enough options, even for a vegetarian. The wines selection is good. We've had a very pleasant evening and really enjoyed the meals prepared with attention to details without unnecessary complications.

Booking it wasn't nice and the crapy mood of our host endure for the hole night. I'm not sure if it was because we are Portuguese (the place only had tourists inside) or because we had a toddler with us (fortunately a well behaved one!). They forgot to give us the wine list after we asked for it and refuse... More

Had the opportunity to dine twice at this restaurant. Excellent food with very interesting mixes of flavors. Presentation superb. The tuna tartar and tuna filet are exquisite. Should also try the pork cheeks. We dined as a couple and also as a group and everybody had ultimate enjoyment. The staff excellent. A must when in Porto. Reservations recommended as many... More
