Food was correct, service was good, nice location by the river. Your typical touristy place, which was just okay for a Sunday night.

Eight of us enjoyed a trip to Porto last weekend. We were a little wary of this tourist area having had a poor meal in this area on Thursday at a different restaurant. We stumbled on this restaurant on Saturday evening and all had a great meal. Service was super. Our party of eight was quickly accommodated by moving tables around. Staff made us feel welcome. We left a 10% tip and were asked if we were sure! Yes we were!
So good we returned the following day for lunch. We were made equally as welcome. Food and service both great!

This place is such a ripe off with extremely lousy service, charging premium price being by river side. It is crowded , no view honestly and they let beggars come in to disturb your otherwise happy holiday mood. Food is so so only, so don't die to eat there. You get better ones by just walking further to its right direction where you get better food and view of the river and dotting port warehouses opposite the river bank. Stay away from this lousy place.

The food was good. Portions were huge. Plenty of food for the money and great value. Really enjoyed the local dishes.

I was very surprised with spectacular tastes that I enjoyed in Chez Lapin. It was the best octopus dinner I ever tried. To be sure that it was not my subjective opinion , we came again two more nights. And all was excellent, including house vine and sweets.
If visiting Porto , do not miss Chez Lapin.
