Like many - we had done the tour of Taylors, glimpsed into the garden and felt hungry... A very good and interesting Gazpacho, a great piece of Beef, ad they dealt with my partner's vegetarian tendencies rather well. Wines recommended by the waiter were good and interesting, the view and location excellent.

You can't sit anywhere better for a late summer's lunch in Porto - the view is just one-off astounding. And the team are friendly and welcoming and hospitable - we were a big table without a booking that they found space on the terrace in just a moment. But the food unfortunately was really rather awful. We had the set... More

We were a large group and had a set menu, should have been easy, three hours after we sat down we'd had really not good food. A large group that came in after us was served before us. Starter was cod with an olive tapenade both elements totally tasteless. Main was a forgettable piece of fish. Dessert was the worst... More

As many have said, it is not really about the food - although it is good and they have a couple of awesome desserts like mango and passion fruit cannelloni. The grounds with the grape vines and the peacock add to the ambience. Definitely recommend dining on the terrace! Service is very good as well, but nothing compares to watching... More

To be honest there is not much to write about the food. I do not want to say it was bad, but it certainly did not reach culinary highs. The thing is, however, the food is good enough to enjoy a meal here and the view over Porto is simply stupefying. Maybe a better one could be found, but I... More

This is about: Port, Setting, Wine, in that order. If you want that, it's a great spot. The view from the terrace is fabulous & makes up for almost everything. However if you want good food you've come to the wrong place & price is steep for Porto.

This restaurant above Taylor's port cellars offers first-class cuisine and a lovely terrace setting. We were a group of eight and all enjoyed our leisurely dinner and the attentive service.

We went to the Restaurant because of the quite good reviews on tripadvisor and I must say the view is breathtaking and the Restaurant is well designed. Nevertheless we where a bit disappointed about the food. Actually the dishes sounded quite tasty in the menu, but it was really nothing special. Quality was ok, but don' t expect more than... More

We had lunch at Barao de Fladgate after a tour of the cellars. The food was pretty good - some dishes were very good while others were just okay. The patio tables have a great view of Porto across the river.

We ended up at Barao after accidently missing another reservation and we were certainly not disappointed! There was a wedding there that night so we didn't get a chance to sit on the much talked about patio but we did sit inside in the restaurant and the food was exceptional. Free port when you arrive was a nice surprise. Prices... More

Description
Barão Fladgate Restaurant enjoys a spectacular location and atmospheric setting in the grounds of Taylor's Port cellars with magnificent views across the Douro River to the old historic centre of Porto. It offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional cuisine where the accent is on fresh local ingredients and on showcasing the authentic flavours of Portugal. The wine list features a wide variety of labels from the main Portuguese vineyard areas and, as would be expected, a comprehensive choice of both wood-aged and Vintage Ports. In summer, Barão Fladgate opens its al fresco terrace area where guests can enjoy a choice of light dishes while enjoying the spectacular panorama of the old city.
