It was a pleasant restaurant on the second floor overlooking the river. The service was slow but the food was fine. There are not many options in Pinhao but this was ok.

We stopped here before our river boat tour…. The food was wonderful, but the 3 servers who were working the dinners were about as unfriendly and in attentive as possible. I understand busy, but to ask 3 times from different staff for something is just...plain unacceptable…. As I said the food was wonderful and I’d recommend it but if you wish to eat and leave in a particular time frame …. Maybe not the best choice.More

We stopped in Pinhao for three nights on our road trip through this beautiful country and while on a private guided boat trip our captain recommended this as the best restaurant in the central area of town, We went there directly for lunch after our...boat tour and ended up eating four consecutive lunches and dinners there, sitting in the upstairs on the outside terrace or inside the restaurant upstairs. The food was great, the setting superb, but what stole our hearts the most was the service, The three or four waiters and waitresses we met made us feel so welcome and we enjoyed our conversations with them as much as the meals. We only got the name of our last waiter, Alex Malaia, who was just terrific, but all the others were on the same high level as Alex. We are so glad we found this restaurant.More

In the evenings, many of the restaurants in Pinhao are closed. This was one of the few open, so we were grateful for the food and drink served. A pleasant atmosphere, but it's not really worth a detour if others are available.

The service here was perfect the staff where really nice and chatty and they brought out your food very quickly, I has sea bass and I must say it was the best sea bass I have had for a long time, we sat up on...the veranda so we got to look at the perfect views whilst we ate it was well just perfect, and the bill was not expensive at all. We'll worth a visit if you are in this part of Portugal especially if you can get on the veranda you will love the views almost as much as the food.More

We asked at 18.12 if we could have cocktails on the upper terrace. Despite it being empty, was told 'dining only'. Sat outside on a plastic table/chairs with unclean tables. Ordered G&T and was offered a choice of three Gins. I, stupidly, chose Hendricks. It...arrived and it was disgusting. He could see the tonic was flat and no hesitation in offering to change it. The flat one had herbs and was caringly made. The second, just a G&T without lime or lemon. The cost was a staggering 15€ EACH! ROBBERY..... I asked for the menu and eventually it appeared stating that the drinks were indeed 15€. Nowhere to go, I had to pay, but am bitterly disappointed and have a very sick feeling in my stomach for being treated as a tourist. I showed my ID card to prove I wasn't a tourist but to no avail. Please show a bit of support by bypassing this con of a bar and by doing so it may force them to stop fleecing other decent people!More

We visited this restaurant after a member of staff at the excellent nearby hotel Vintage House recommended it. We spent all afternoon ringing the restaurant, and no one picked the phone. We have it the benefit of the doubt and dropped by at dinner time....We explained we had tried to ring all afternoon and a member of staff said they had not table for four and the only possibility would be to sit at two different tables. After a long while, and after two of us were already sitting, they kicked us out saying they had a pregnant woman waiting. But they didn’t even gave us the choice of waiting. So we now recommend no one visits this place. It is not reliable or trustworthy.More

The bar at the LBV restaurant was a regular go-to because its always open and had a table outside available. The espresso is good and the snacks (we tried caprese salad and toast) can be recommended too. nothing fancy but good and fresh and friendly

I chose the airy terrasse to have dinner, with the spectacular view of the Douro river. We had not reserved a table but the staff were friendly and efficient to sit us down quickly for dinner. The waitress was speaking brilliant Spanish and we were...quickly savouring Douro wines with cheese,as a starter. The waiter knew his wines and advised us on the best choices. I chose the very fresh Dorade grilled with freshly picked and prepared mixed salad: perfection of taste, done in a simple way yet very rare to find! Local olive oil is renowned here. My husband had the veal filet in mustard sauce and he also thought it was delicious. A no fuss restaurant,in a prime spot, a gem to find! Excellent value and the location is wonderful. Highly recommended.More

What a delightful experience: the views are spectacular if you choose to dine outside (which we did). Two adults 2 teenagers sat down to lunch and everyone left very satisfied. Great food presentation, sizes were appropriate, service attentive and everyone left extremely satisfied. Great choice...that won’t break the bank.More

This was the only place which had a table. We did see poor reviews but as it seemed busy, thought we'd risk it and stick to a simple light lunch. If you'd given an 8 year old a piece of mozarella, a tomato and a...couple of lettuce leaves - they'd have been more creative! Simple salad arranged in a pattern on the plate - not at all appetising and miserable quantities. My husband had a chicken pasta salad which looked as though it had been emptied out of a prepacked offering. Four small salads, a bottle of water and one small glass of very poor quality white wine = 66E. We were in and out in 35 mins - one advantage. Waiting staff, to be fair were pleasant and efficient.More
