“Feeling fooled”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Decided to try this restaurant when I was visiting Oporto and checked the good reviews in Tripadvisor. Felt totally fooled.
The service is just terrible: the waiter is cocky and pretentious, veeeeeeeeery slow and not helpfull. Maybe that's the restaurant trademark, maybe you're an "alternative / urban person" or hippie who will love the retro atmosphere and the music. But nothing of this is whort the time and the money. Also, the food is nothing special and was cold. I decided to skip the desert just by thinking about the time it would take for the waiter to bring the menu, to come back to take my order and to come back with it: not less than 45 minutes believe me.
Wouldn't go back even if I had a free meal.

“Disappointment”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

After reading so many fantastic reviews about this place we went for it.
Small cosy restaurant and good atmosphere saved this review from being worst.

For a restaurant with capacity for more less 30 people, the waiter came back 3 times saying that our menu choices were not available.

Then it took them 1 hour to bring starters - a plain cold crepe with salad and shrimps - one hour!

Food was good, but not fenomenal. I guess I had my expectations really high, and that's a shame. Duck was hard to chew and curry sauce was too grainy.

Won't go back so soon...

“Best in the city”
Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

I am in oporto for a week now working, and Cometa was the best restaurant i tried in the city! I felt at home away from home! Don t miss the pumpkin soup neither the fresh fish. Great wines all served by glass and an attentive service. Music selection amazing! A real treat!!! Don t miss it!
