The staff enticed us in by telling my husband there was a lift to the second floor - we got the best table, on the terrace and overlooking the waterfront. The service was excellent. The food was good (pasta with seafood) and the prices reasonable for what we had.

Whatever you eat, meat, fish or pasta, it's delicious. The service is wonderful. The crew is casual and professional, also very loveable. This is single-handedly the best place in Gaia - no need to look further. Thank you for making our night a blast

The food was really good, the service also good and very friendly, the place looks nice. Prices were normal, approximately 20 e pp for main meal and a... More

How nice to be pleasantly surprised by a place like this. On the waterfront, profit seems the priority, especially July-September. There are always exceptions though and here is one. Local friends said this was good and they were right. Amazing service, stunning terrace upstairs and surprisingly good food. It isn't the Porto usual great value but the location is special... More

Nice and fancy restaurant with good prices and beautiful views over Oporto. 3 Floors. You can sit either inside, outside or on the 2nd floor where you will have a beautiful view over Oporto and bridges. The design and set up of the restaurant and tables is fancy, but you pay a regular price. A francesinha will cost you around... More

We had the Sea Bass, and it was very nice. The starter with melted goat cheese, honey and almond flakes and good bread is simple but brilliantly tasty. Located on the south river side it is slightly less crowded that the Porto side, but it has a better view of Porto. Well worth visit.

We had a very enjoyable meal here on our first night in Porto. We ate a beautiful baked cod dish with vegetables... Polished off the whole lot. Our waiter was very chatty, the wine was tasty and everything was very reasonably priced. All topped off with lovely views. An excellent little find in a beautiful city.

Ate here twice during our stay in Porto. On our first visit we went on the advice of the waiter which was fresh fish (cod) in a parmesan sauce & while it didn't sound like a match, it was superb. The fish was a thick tasty white piece and the sauce was every so subtle and complemented the fish well.... More
