Very good food and a delicious sangria with a wonderful view for Douro River. People are really nice.

I recommend making a reservation or be willing to wait a while for food! Everything is made from scratch to order by the family owners of the restaurant. Nonu, our waiter, kept our drinks full while we waited at a table on the water on a gorgeous sunny day. Typically you get caught in tourist trap restaurants in order to enjoy a view but this place offers delicious tapas and picturesque views. We enjoy a long 3 hour lunch one day and were taken very well care of the entire time!

Before us, there was an older portugues couple. They checked the menu and walked away. We were hungry so went in. The wine was good and reasonable priced, but the tapas were expensive (fish tapas 7,50e with 3 small pieces of fish and a rest is potatos) and not special. Good service, but overall ok.

We walked slightly away from Ribeira Square up towards the bridge and found this small restaurant. The food was wonderful and I cannot recommend it enough, every mouthful was full of flavour, particularly the small toasts and the platter of cheese. This was the best place we ate in our three days in Porto. Would love to magic it over to London!

With its canvas chairs and slate and crochet menus, this restaurant stands out from the touristy eateries strung along Porto's waterfront. It offers tasty tapas, accompanied by bread or biscuits. We had three plates and had no room for dessert. Not very exciting local wine. The view of the iron bridge and the Port houses across the river is magnificent.
