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.

“Best food In Porto”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stayed at the 4Rooms (best place ever) and Pedro Lemos is literally 100 feet away. Food was to die for and the ambiance is incredible. Best lamb I've ever had. Wine was exquisite and recommended. Probably should've gone for ever meal in Porto. Not cheap, but also not overly expensive, and very much worth every euro spent. Chef kept sending surprise treats to the table, which were very much appreciated and delicious. Had a mint ice cream creation and, in all honesty, was probably the best and most creative dessert I've ever had. Finished off dinner with a glass of port, also excellent. Recommend to anyone in the area. Hope to be back soon.

“Lovely and elegant on the outskirts of Porto”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

We found this restaurant through Wine Spectator magazine. It is located in Foz, an upscale residential area outside of Porto city center and a far more attractive area than downtown Porto, which we really disliked. Food and service were impeccable here, extensive Portuguese wine list. The chef served us several small surprise dishes throughout our meal, which is always fun (also asked if we had any allergies, I love when a restaurant takes enough care to ask). we stayed at The Yeatman, about 15 euros cab ride each way. Do not drive yourself, you will never find this restaurant, it is tucked away on a narrow street. Restaurant will call a taxi for you when you are ready to leave. Not the best food ever, but given how much we have disliked Porto, a very pleasant evening, although expensive.
