It`s a cozy and quite elegant restaurant, located right on the Avenida da Boavista. I think, is more indicated for having diner, where you can find the real atmosfere.
The price is average, main meal, with an average wine and desert, about 25€ to 30€ per person.

Six of us ate here as it had been recommended. It was quite expensive at about 60 euros each. We did not get offered the tasting menu.
The food was lovely. I had Carpaccio of Sea Bass and then Prawns (only 3 tiny ones) and Squid in a buerre Blanc sauce which was very nice (once I had got over the 3 Prawns disappointment.
The big problem was the service though which was very slow and rather strange.
After choosing the wine. They brought it to the table and left it there unopened for 20 minutes and we had to ask them a number of times to serve the wine. By which time we had nearly finished our starters!
Not sure if I would go back - despite the flavours being lovely. Puddings were gorgeous by the way

(+) We ordered the "menu degustar". Delicious food, excellent wine matching with each course. Excellent service. Very helpful and friendly staff. I highly recommend to visit this restaurant. I'll do when back to Porto.
(-) I don't think a restaurant of this level should have a huge tv screen on. It doesn't match with the ambiance.

If you're in the neighbourhood of Bull & Bear and hungry - its really a no brainer to stop by for a fantastic meal.

However the waiter (very friendly staff) told us that lunch was completely full, because of the businessmen/women who came to eat.

We had their 4 dish tasting menu, with wine - at 85€ including coffea,tea and water - it doesn't get much better!

Four of us visited The Bull and Bear in June 2010. From reading the reviews on Trip advisor we were expecting good food but were nervous it was going to be over priced and bad service - however the restaurant completely surpassed our expectations - the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly, the food was fantastic and we thought it was excellent value - 4 courses, each accompanied with wine or port for 39 euros. The tasting menu was fois gras terrine with a white port, we then had a fish dish which was seabass with clam risotto (with white wine) then duck (red wine) and finally a cheese course with some tawny port. The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. Its a great fine dining restaurant and good modern food -its nice to get away from the portuguese traditional food sometimes. Was reluctant to post this review as was quite tempted to keep this little gem to myself!
