The first thing you should now is that Hamburg has more Portuguese restaurants than most other towns outside of Portugal. And "Porto" literally lies as one in a cluster of maybe 10-12 other Portuguese restaurants, so there is plenty of choice. "Porto" just looked slightly better than its neighbors and competitors and had more guests (which is normally a good sign). We were not disappointed. And in particular their "local" dishes like Cataplana (sort of seafood paella with potato slices instead of rice) were a wonderful surprise. Modest prices too.

On our recent trip to Germany, my husband and I visited some cities and, while in Hamburg, we went to this restaurant mainly due to the opinions we read in this website.

We were very disappointed. The restaurant is small and it was half full. It seemed to be nice but we soon saw some details that started to catch our attention. First, it seemed that the waiters paid more attention (and were nicer) to the German guests.
When I was having my soup, one of the waiters was literally running to serve some Germans in another table and, on his way, he asked me how my soup was without even bothering himself to stop and look at me!

Secondly, we asked another waiter if he did not mind taking a dish full of starters/appetizers away (that the first waiter put in our table and that we have not ordered) and he made an annoyed face. He then made some comments in a lower voice to the other waiters at the reception bar (which we could not hear). We felt disgusted with such unprofessional attitudes.

Thirdly, the octopus rice we ordered was awfully spicy - they just "killed" the meal. I was soooo unwell, so sick after eating this that I only wanted to leave that place. The waiter did not seem to be very interested in the regards my husband made him about that rice.

Last but not least, later I found out (by checking the receipt and comparing it with the menu available online) that they have different prices in the "menu online" / list they have available on site!

So, no!, we cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone!! The food was really awful and we felt we were robbed as the price we paid was much higher than that we should have paid! It was the worst restaurant we ever visited. If anyone who reads this message goes there just pay attention to the price list and compare with the receipt afterwards!

Lost our reservation, but set us up outside on a lovely night. Everything on the street was crowded and full. Excellent friendly waiter, good prices, wonderful tapas, paela was super. Lamb filet in red wine sauce is superb.
