We ve been there for our last day in Porto and it really was a nice discover.
The waiters advises well about the local food and wines, which were greats, the view might not be spectacular but the place is really nice.

Poor service - late bread - no condiments - uncaring waiter - fried fish came with a bit of salad & raw carrot. No attempt to make either the guests or the food feel special. Looks like a good restaurant but behaves like a cafe. An expensive mistake!

Down by the riverside ( or rather down a small alley just off the main Ribiera). I ordered grilled veal medallions, but when it arrived, it was actually 2 massive fillet steaks. The cost of the dish was less than if I had bought the raw meat in Tesco's, and was delicious. Quite a busy tourist area - but good value for money.

I only am reiterating previous reviews. What a fantastic little restaurant this is. From the starters to the main course, all were excellent. There were six of us and we had a varied list from the menu. All the meals from the soup to the sausage on the starters board and the steak to the rabbit were of excellent standard. For a group of six the service was excellent. The food turned up very quickly by cheerful/helpful staff and the wine list was excellent with reasonably priced bottles. I had the rabbit and I can honestly say it was the best tasting rabbit in a beautiful sauce I have ever eaten. The best bit was the price.......very reasonable indeed. Definitely a restaurant to put on your list when visiting Porto.

So quaint and authentic! Great location by the river and simple authentic dishes. The rabbit was fantastic. Would definitely return to Porto when visiting Portugal, just to eat here!
