Description: “Pedro Lemos” is one of Oporto’s most renowned restaurants.The chef ’s originality stands in a pleasantlysurprising contrast to the typical Portuguese flavors,so as to present the clients with unique and unforgettableculinary experiences, turning each meal into an“urban safari”. Located in Foz, one of Oporto’s mostbeautiful and emblematic historical neighborhoods, therestaurant’s venue is a building deemed of architecturalsignificance. It was first inaugurated in 1964 as a Britishinspiredpub that became a place of choice of that time’selites. At Pedro Lemos you can explore different spacesand ambiances, always exquisite and comfortable. The specialty of the restaurant are the seasonal tasting menus.The wine selection is carefully sourced, the service is impeccable.

I've never actually reviewed a restaurant on tripadvisor before. Go to a lot of decent places so haven't really had the time or motivation. But this place was so special I feel it deserves a review.

Just excellent. The whole experience was really really great.

We went on a saturday afternoon and it never really got too busy, which was actually quite nice as it meant we had a chef of clear michelin star ability focussing almost exclusively on our food!

We went with 1 x taster menu 7 course and 1 x taster menu 5 course, washed down with a range of ports and a delicious bottle of white.

All the dishes were delicious with such attention to detail, so genuinely tasty and clever food. If I was to pick a few standouts they would be: Foie gras served 3 ways (normal, as a foam, in macaroon), seafood soup with the most incredibly fresh tasty ingredients, sea bream, veal cheek, 'the madeira banana desert' and a stunning citrus fruit desert.

Amongst the best service we've ever had, the sommellier and waitress really know their stuff and you can see how passionate they are about the restaurant.

It will surely have a michelin star very soon.

Not a cheap meal but very good value for the quality.

Go there, you will not be disappointed!

It was predictable that the food would be great and indeed it was outstanding (I'm a food lover)., but what has impressed me the most was when the chef approached my table talked to me and his honesty, simplicity was simply great.

Excellent food (actualized Portuguese dishes) served with wines that match perfectly. The service is always perfect and friendly. There is a terrace in the first floor, very nice when the weather is good.
Good value for money.

What a little gem, tucked away on a narrow street in the Foz. The food was incredible, the service excellent and the prices reasonable. A very special place!
