“Full of energy”
Reviewed June 12, 2014 via mobile

Its a great part of the city. Vibrant, full of energy and great views over the river and the bridge. Food can be pricey so do your homework on picking a good and affordable place if you plan to eat here. Otherwise, just enjoy.

“Beatiful Stroll Along the River”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Cafes with outdoor seating, vendors, and buskers. This is a nice place to have some cool air by the river on a nice evening. Many of the eateries are touristy and are expensive. But it is a good place to enjoy an evening walk or have a drink and watch the world go by in the city.

“Beautiful historic part of Porto”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Porto is a very beautiful city and the Ribeirinha exemplifies this fact. It's a great, vibrant place with lots of cafes and restaurants. It's a good place to wile away a few hours in the sun. It seems to get more touristy at the weekend so try and visit on a weekday if possible.

“Great for people watching!”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is a fab spot - right on the river bank, any table outside a cafe here will offer amazing views. It's easy to let a few hours drift by just watching Portuguese life happen, and it's not too overpriced either!

“Most vibrant area of Porto”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

There is no doubt that it's a tourist trap, but having said that the area is continually busy with loads of people, tons of restaurants and local artisans. We cannot comment on the food/drinks as we tend to avoid these "touristy" areas. The view of this area from across the river is stunning and makes for great photo opportunities! Most vibrant area of Porto from our perspective, and very well worth spending some time.
