Went on the recommendation of a friend- we had fried mushrooms and bread to start accompanied by a white port and 1/2 bottle Douro red. For mains we shared octopus served with cabbage and baby potatoes and a giant prawn dish accompanied by salad and fresh chips and a bottle of Alentejo red gorgeous! They brought us a complimentary tawny port to finish - restaurant set in old quarter very atmospheric we finished with a stroll by the river

We got to this restaurant on the advice of the guide.We ordered two dishes of cod, both were tastefully many times frozen fish. Another ordered fried (hard for eaten) pork with clams full of sand.
I do not recommend this restaurant.

We had a terrific dinner for 6 adults. Our waiter Moreira was attentive, humorous and helpful with food and wine suggestions. Setting is quite nice near old port area though no view. Value was excellent.

We went there for lunch and it was packed. We ordered seafood stew with rice. It’s their version of paella. It was prepared to perfection. It’s for 2 people, but honestly it can feed 3-4 we could not finish it. The portion was very generous and had plenty of shell fish in it. I will definitely go back.

We arrived without a reservation, and even though there was only a table for 4 empty, they cleared the 2 spots and gave it to us. The evening was lovely. The food was great and our server was stellar. Luís (Monteiro) loves his job and was more than helpful helping us pick our meal, wine pairings and drinks. He explained so much about the food origins and how it's prepared, as well as the wine and port. We were there for 3.5 hours and has such a lovely meal and evening. We will definitely go back again. Thanks Luís for making the evening so enjoyable!
