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

Had early dinner (made reservation) on the second floor by the window. Nice view, food good but not great, drinks fine, service attentive and prompt.

We found the outside with the streets traffic a bit to busy and got inside, nice atmosphere, fair prices, food was OK, we took the dishes proposed by the house, excellent fish with vegetables and stumped potato.

Great food (steak was to die for, so soft!), great service and lovely balcony overlooking the river. Would definitely go back if I'm in Porto again.

Good service, mediocre food all around. Made for tourists. Not sure why it's number 7 on this side of the river.

On the river front, with great views. We went up the lift to the second floor and recommend the exterior seating area for the full atmosphere. Meal was made by the excellent attentive service of the two waiters!

We were taken to this restaurant by our Portuguese business associates. It's a busy tourist place with English speaking staff and menus. Magnificent view of the riverfront. Overall pleasant experience but the food could have been better. It is tourist oriented so guess it won't be so Portuguese. Nevertheless worth the visit !
