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.

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!

Muito Obrigado,

Damiano

Warmly welcomed and led up steepish stairs to our table by the window. If there are just two of you I would recommend asking for one of the two tables by the window - great for people watching. This was our third restaurant of the trip so we were prepared for the starters on the table and sent back the olives and the cheese.
This is another place where the owner is passionate about his restaurant and is happy to take onboard any constructive criticism you may have. In our case the orange sauce which came with the very good pork was too sweet for the other ingredients and spoilt what was otherwise an excellent dish. Both the owner and the chef discussed this with us in a very friendly way.
I had the surprise dessert but couldn't quite work out the ingredients. There are several very good wines served by the glass.
Other people have commented on how long it takes - they obviously haven't had the four-hour lunches that we can have in France so it all seemed just the right pace for us.
When we left the waiter came out and opened the taxi door for me. As we drove off the owner called the taxi to apologise for not saying goodbye to us as he was busy with other customers - both firsts and it shows the standard of service.
All in all it was a very enjoyable evening

Well, we had some great food in Portugal, but this was the best. Lovely setting. Booked night before and got a great table upstairs in front of the window with view of bridge. Great choice, and even the lesser expensive wines were excellent. Portions not massive, but quality and that's better for us. Nicely presented. Not rushed to leave - table for the night, which is what you want to savour the experience. All cooked fresh on premises. Would definitely return.

We were received by the owner who speaks fluently many languages, he makes you feel at home and the chef prepares amazing food with local ingredients.
We had a very romantic table and the food was amazing!
It's a must go in Porto for the food, the place and the whole expirience!!!

I went here with 3 friends for a hen party at the end of May. We got a nice table in an annex room and the owner was very welcoming. The food and wine was very nice, but the portions were not quite enough; however, we did get "seconds" of the side dishes.
the owner was very nice and made it fun for our friend's hen party, and after dinner he recommended a few clubs and bars for us to check out.
A very nice evening in nice surroundings.
