We were lucky to get a walk in here, as one normally has to book quite a way ahead. We tried again for a week later and failed to get a table.
The ambiance, food and service here are second to none. it's only a small place, but I think they plan to expand.It is really as good as the reviews say. If you plan to visit Porto, book before you travel here!
It's just behind the station, which is worth a visit itself.

We tried to get in tonight but they are booked up for the whole week. We are really disappointed but will try to get in at lunchtime. Advice. Book ahead.

I came here twice on my trip (which I never do) and was inclined to write a review (which I rarely do). This place has unbelievably friendly service and beyond delicious food. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, but always buzzing. It will be full, so make a reservation, get there early, or be prepared to wait. Highly, highly recommend!

My friends and I went here based on the reviews here and were so happy we did. The seafood curry was to die for...It’s a must order and the presentation of the dishes was gorgeous. The restaurant’s name is a bit deceiving since there weren’t many tapas dishes on the lunch menu but my friends and I shared mains and were very satisfied.

to get a table in this fairly small restaurant you need to be organised
We found it on Thursday evening at 7pm and people were queuing outside the door having been told there would be no tables before 20.30

We booked for the next night at 19.00when they opened on the understanding we needed to vacate the table in favour of other guests at 20.30

Well the food was of the clock as was the service.
I had the best sea food curry I have every had and believe you me I have eaten some good sea food curries.

The dishes appear to be their own creations and the menu is fairly simple and uncomplicated and the fore cooked fresh.

The ambience was excellent and the lady owner who also doubles up as a door woman/ bouncer was lovely as were all her staff. No wonder people que. it’s worth the wait.
