In addition to being perfectly located, near the river, Populi has an excellent cuisine and a great service and ambience. Great place to enjoy a meal and have a good time. Been there a couple of times and will surely get back many more times in the future.

The food was very poor for a restaurant that claims to be 'gourmet'.
And the desserts... what a disaster!!
Not worth the money table.

On a short break wit hfrinds we headed t othe Teirro da Placa as a starting point. Food and drink needed, we stopped in at the Populi. The service, food and drink was very good. So good, it became our 'war office' (place to sit and plan our touristy stuf) for the duration of our stay. never disappointed. The staff were excellent and understanding of some of our lunch sleections! A very big thanks to the young Brazilian lady and her colleague (Fatma I think?) for their superb service, and the owner for makinga destination worthy of repeat visits.

We asked our hotel to book us a table at the nearby Populi Restaurant in the lovely Praca do Comercio, and the booking was essential as the place was completely full on the Saturday evening we were there. Even so the staff, whilst working incredibly hard, were really nice and very helpful with our food and wine choices. (We are always impressed when the wine suggested to us is good but towards the chaper end of the wine list.) Altogether we had a really nice evening although the food was a bit mixed - lovely bread and olives put on the table, the starters a bit pretenious and unimpressive, the mains again mixed (although my wife loved her pigs cheek dish), and some excellent deserts. Populi is not a cheap option and the food does not always match up to the billing, but we had a good meal there and may be being a bit over critical!

I loved the ambiance of this place but the food even more. It seems like a place that wouldn't accomodate children so well, but it was the opposite. The waiter took us upstairs where less people were sitting and served the children first! We could enjoy our delicious meal once we fed the kids (a 5-yr old and a 1-yr old). Tip: Try the cod with chickpea puree!
