“Lovely location, nice staff, good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We went for Sunday lunch without a reservation on the recommendation of the Concierge at the Intercontinental. He wasn't wrong. Service quietly efficient, with knowledgable staff, and a cool relaxed atmosphere. The food is 'modern', appetizing and fresh. Wine not too expensive either.

“Beautiful location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We got there before sunset and were early enough to get a window table. That is early for most people in Porto to eat so we didn't need reservations. If you come 8 p.m. on you will need them. The restaurant is right on the Atlantic; once the sun goes down forget the view. The food and service were good but to tell the truth, I remember the view not the food.

“What a sunset view!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

It was suggested to us by the people who run Guest House Douro that eat here and time our visit for sunset. We took the trolley from the Ribeira and walked the last 10 minutes along the river to where it met the Atlantic. We got there as the sun was setting and the tide was coming in so the waves were crashing right at our feet practically - we had table by the windows.The food was very good - my wife had a filete de robalo and I had an extremely fresh piece of seared tuna. They have a sushi bar also. The clientele looked like professional types. I would go back here if I am ever in Porto again (I hope so) and would recommend it highly especially6 if you can get a table by the windows.

“I have never..”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

I have never been to a restaurant with such low quality of service. The waiters were downright rude in the instant we found a piece of glass floating in our cup! A PIECE OF GLASS! The waiter said nothing, not even an apology and just threw down another cup and filled it with water. For a restaurant that looks upscale and posh, the service and even the quality of food was un-creative and was no better than your local Macdonals.

“Upmarket restaurant at affordable prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Staying in a hotel nearby and had lunch in the snack area; very good in a great location and booked a late dinner. Busy so book in advance but worth it; good ambience and service ; great variety of dishes and wines and we all enjoyed it. Probably expensive by Porto standards but cheap compared to Lisbon. Would certainly go again.
