Booked for lunch during a visit to Amarante - simply wonderful experience. Elegant but unstuffy service, beautiful imaginative food. Set Lunch available which is good value. We went a la carte which does push the price up, but well worth it for the tastes and attention to detail which is evident in every course. Serious cooking with excellent local ingredients,... More

Perfect for the drive from the Duoro Valley to Porto. Or a side trip from Porto. There is a reasonable prix-fix lunch, but the main menu was so enticing we ordered a la carte. Beautiful setting over the river, we chose to eat outside. One of the very best and special meals we had in Portugal. Do not miss!

I found that restaurant during our trip in Portugal and it was a top moment of our holidays. We took the lunch at 35 euros and that was really a divine experience. The 3 starters were really innovative, one based on bacalau but presented as a flower pot ! "Bravo" to the creativity and the high quality of the food.... More

We came here around 3 pm for a late lunch. It took the staff a long time to get us the proper menu, which was the room service menu of which all hot dishes could not be taken after three, except sandwiches. It took more than 40 minutes before we got those, although the place was almost empty. In the... More

My husband and I are foodies on a budget. We love to learn about/ follow Michelin starred restaurants, but their prices are usually hard to swallow. The price fixe lunch at Largo do Paco is reasonably priced, as are the house wines. The dishes were outrageously beautiful/ whimsical/ delicious. Service was exquisite. . . and our meal there was the... More

We visited this restaurant as a wedding gift from some friends who share the same enthusiasm for wine and food as we do. We got the tasting menu with wine pairings. While the bill was pricey, it was so worth it. The service was impeccable, and so was the food. The wine was enhanced by each dish and vice versa.... More

Went here for high tea. Its cheap but it is only half a high tea. Scones are very good! Some cookies. Chique, special butter, special suger cubes, good tea. Nox is kept close after choosing like it is a vault. Some people have a bit of an air, they know they are in this chique restaurant and act funny.

We had diner in the restaurant, and this was an unforgettable experience, the Portuguese tradition in parallel with the modern touch, making the meal a moment with many (good) surprises. We had two "menus de degustação'. A positive point is that they also have a kids menu. Very nice and attentive service, a place that makes it worth going to... More

We chose to dine here because of its very convenient location -- we were staying at the hotel and we thought it would be fun to dine at a Michelin rated restaurant.
