We've visited Porto for many years and can only describe every experience as excellent until tonight. Cut backs were clearly evident in terms of lower quality ingredients and their cooking. The chicken in the cassoulet was dry and over cooked, the accompanying sausage cassoulet was just frozen cubes thrown in to the mix; the haricot beans were undercooked and fibrous; the pork belly was too fatty and had not been rendered down enough, the pigs in blankets tasted like they'd come from the freezer cabinet at Farmfoods instead of being freshly made and cooked on-site (no offence to Farmfoods, but they don't pretend to be or charge haute cuisine. The staff, as ever, we're friendly and attentive but something has definitely changed about the food and the chef's approach. Come on Porto - don't mind higher prices for high cuisine, but if you're going to cut corners, cut prices as well and be open to customers.
