This is a restaurant for those who like cheese! We were given a large selection of cheese products as a 'starter', some of which were a little too strong for our liking. We had fried cheese (denture wearers beware!), a very nice soft mild cheese, some cheese pate (which was so strong, neither of us could eat it!) and bread.... More

We visited the place for dinner because it looked nice and traditional. Altough there were only a few guests it took very long until we could order. Food was terrible, we had the shelfish soup that consisted of a few tiny crabs and a lot of surimi, just awful. The tenderloin steak with mushrooms also was very bad, even the... More

I asked for grilled salmon and it was terrible. The fish and the vegetables weren't fresh and the fish was overcooked! I have doubts about the cleaning. The waiter was annoying, always trying to make not funny jokes. And then the prices are expensive, so you'll eat bad, in a terrible place and you'll pay it expensive!

The place looked quite nice and the menu included the typical Portuguese dishes. However, as we sat down, it took ages to finally get attended. As it took so long, we had already decided what to drink, the waiter finally came and threw the menu on the table. We wanted to order drinks directly but he told us in a... More

I stated in one of their rooms for a night. The room was nice, cost 40 euros, but the I found out the wifi didn't work and the air conditioner had a problem, maybe the fan was broke, not sure. I also ate there once. I had a typical Portuguese dish. It was ok, though a little over priced i... More

On a busy night in Porto city centre, we decided this restaurant looked OK. Big mistake. Extortionate price for starter (over €7 for some cheese on a piece of toast) - a lovely surprise when we got the bill... Tasteless, poorly cooked fish. When we questioned the prices, we only received abuse from the owner. What a lovely evening.

I went to this restaurant as part of a family group, including our 2-year-old granddaughter, so the TV showing Disney was a plus for us, not a minus. Three of us had the prawn cocktail and I have never had a better one. The prawns were huge and fresh and it was very tasty. The same three then had steak... More

It was our first night in Porto. The restaurant we planed to visit was full so we tried to find another one. We decided for this one. We regret it a lot after the dinner. I ate shellfish soup and calamari, my boyfriend took a grilled codfish. Both meals was burnt. Soup tastes like instant one, they added some surimi... More

This Restaurant is a tourist rip off. The food, prices and service are unacceptable. The meat and fish did not have a good quality.
