The walk down to the Duoro river in Porto should be enough to engage your senses....But when you arrive in this gem, where you are greated with such warmth and hospitality that puts most family gatherings to shame, you realise that you have hit the jack pot!
To start there is an amazing must haves of local cheese and cured pork fillet. After which, if you decide to skip the starters, their is a tantalising Octopus with potatoes and a Beef Fillet with mashed potatoes and port reduction which all and all could sound rather simple, but I swear are to die for!!!!.
The wine and it's explanation/presentation are incendiary! Perhaps a give away given the name of the place... but truth be told the care and personal touch of Cristóvão, the owner of this romantic and nostalgic oasis are really what makes the experience worth while.
A special evening and wonderful meal that will be etched in my heart and stomach forever!
