We ate here on our last night In Porto and it's was the best meal we had during our trip. The staff are friendly and explained the menu to us and how the dishes are cooked. The food was outstanding. Great place tucked away on a small side street.

Flor dos Congregados is great quality, great service, and an incredible value. Off a side street, it's worth looking for. While we didn't have a reservation, the staff fit us in anyway and gave us a great experience. They speak a bit of English, French, and Spanish quite well; so, you'll have no problem communicating. Try the house bubbling red wine, the terylene sandwich, "aleira" / game sausage, and the tripe stew. We were stunned when we received our check at the end of the night; it was easily half of what we were expecting for such a great meal. An incredible value and absolutely delicious!

My husband and I called in without a reservation and were greeted pleasantly by attentive staff. We were promptly shown a table and the menu was explained in detail by one of the waiters. Food was delicious and surroundings pleasant. Glad we visited

This two story restaurant was 2 doors from our lodging so it was a treat to eat delicious food here. The staff are friendly and helpful in describing the dining options. We enjoyed the atmosphere with relics from the building's past life.

We booked ahead as we had read such great reviews. When we turned up all the staff looked like schoolboys on their first day at big school. It's a beautiful restaurant, dark and mediaeval with a smell of wood smoke.
The sweet and confused young men showed us to a table and scuttled away. They randomly brought in a table of 7 without a reservation... Warning them it would be a long wait for food.
Eventually someone brought a blackboard of food and left. Another lad brought a small roll cut into slices... And left. Then a third came back and explained the menu in which all dishes came with potatoes and legumes apparently. After explaining all the meals, he then told us most were unavailable.
We ordered fish... Two different meals.
Our waiter reappeared 5 minutes later with his friend... And sent him to tell us both our meals were also unavailable.
By now I had a fit of the giggles and we decided to leave it there, and abandoned ship leaving the table of 7 and an old guy who had struggled up stairs to enjoy the one remaining dish.
Lovely lads. Shambolic restaurant. Don't get sucked in to your own hype.
Good luck
