Description: Welcome to a quite, rustic 19th century house, just in front of river Douro, where Portuguese wine and food are the perfect excuse to forget the world and to enjoy the moment. An open kitchen where we love what we do to whom we do. A wide variety of Portuguese wines (15 by the glass) from which you can choose. Far from confusion, protected yet exposed, we look to pay an Ode to those who visit us - our guests. Relax. Fell at home.

“Amazing food and superb service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2013

The food was very good and the service was superb. This was without doubt a 5 out of 5 experience and would highly recommend to anyone visiting porto. Our meal was just over 100 euros for starter, main, dessert, wine and coffee which was excellent value

“Great local produce, delicious flavours and cooked with skill and knowledge”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We ate here on our last night in porto after reading the previous reviews we were delighted that this restaurant lived up to our expectations. We had the appetisers which were recommended including local smoked pork, sheep cheese, olives and bread. We also enjoyed the pork sausage with mango and the salad for starters both dishes were delicious and full of flavour. For the mains we had the octopus which was tender and paired with a chutney and vegetables, the second main was the steak with port reduction which was cooked to perfection and paired well with the sauce. We also enjoyed a cocktail of the house (white port) and a bottle of red wine, this cost around 110 euro. Overall the food had great paired flavours and was cooked with love. Not the most outstanding meal we have eaten in our travels but definitely great food and excellent atmosphere would recommend visiting if you enjoy great food and are in porto.

“Amazing Dining Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

ODE is more than just a night out for dinner; it is a special dining experience. You enter through the rustic door, and your special evening begins the moment you are greeted enthusiastically by the owner. The starters are just amazing, and the owner explains the origin of each item that is offered. Wine list offers excellent choices, and dinner dishes and desserts were perfectly prepared and tasted delicious. Delicious food accompanied with a beautiful intimate setting and the treatment you receive from the owner and the staff makes this restaurant a very special place. Don't leave Porto without visiting ODE.

“A Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

We ran through the rain to find this restaurant and it was well worth the effort. A tiny little restaurant with a huge footprint. The food - amazing. The staff could not do enough to make it a memorable night. In all our travels it is a standout.

“Porto dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Tired from international travel and hot from historic temperature highs, Ode was exactly what we needed to welcome us to the ambience and flavor of Portugal. The owner exhibits amazing passion for his culinary craft and is eager to educate you. He makes you feel like a guest in his home, not a foreigner in a foreign restaurant. The appetizer, starter course, and entrees all exceeded my expectations. We had excellent wine recommendations to compliment our dinner selections. The dessert was my favorite part of the meal and the owner was able to guess my selection without me saying it. Don't go to Ode without trying the chocolate volcano. You will be mesmerized. Come to Ode for a unique experience and leave knowing more about the finer things Portugal has to offer.
