We were served by young men that were more interested in their own conversation than the job itself. What to say? we got served - standard quality.

A party of 3, we ordered Croissants and a Cappuccino. The Croissants were dry, felt like they were old (they seem to have not even been reheated). The Cappuccino was - simply put - one of the worst cups of coffee I’ve ever had. The...More

Fabulous terrace with a fabulous view over the river and the city beyond. Additional entertainment provided by photogenic seagulls, although the waiter was keen for other customers not to try to feed them. Nice cold beer and a cumfy seat. Main criticism was that it...More

The south side of the river provides the best view of Porto and this perch gives you a great vantage point to enjoy the city. The bar itself is average in terms of service and beverages. But average in Portugal is pretty good. The river,...More

I liked the view from the balcony to Porto very much. You can take some drink or just sit on the wide ages of the terrace near the cafe. Must to visit in Porto. You can get there by teleferico or stages.
