Description: Barão Fladgate Restaurant enjoys a spectacular location and atmospheric setting in the grounds of Taylor's Port cellars with magnificent views across the Douro River to the old historic centre of Porto. It offers a contemporary interpretation of traditional cuisine where the accent is on fresh local ingredients and on showcasing the authentic flavours of Portugal. The wine list features a wide variety of labels from the main Portuguese vineyard areas and, as would be expected, a comprehensive choice of both wood-aged and Vintage Ports. In summer, Barão Fladgate opens its al fresco terrace area where guests can enjoy a choice of light dishes while enjoying the spectacular panorama of the old city.

“Delicious food for a business evening”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

There were around twenty of us at the meal, and the staff dealt extremely well with the orders and service. The food itself was delicious - the tournedos in port sauce was excellent - and the view over Porto from the windows was a delightful accompaniement to the meal. Recommended.

“Lovely long lunch”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We came for a late lunch and were well rewarded with great food and wine. It was hard to choose from the extensive menu, but wine choice was easy with the expert help of the staff! It was a lovely relaxed lunch with some of the best views in Porto. Recommended!

“Beware hidden charges”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

We went in May 2014 as a treat one year on from getting engaged. The food here was OK at best and not good enough for the price, but the thing that really annoyed us was that when the bill came the breads, olives, white port and even water that was presented to us before the menu was even brought to us were included as separate items! This added about 16 euros to the bill. The restaurant is a little out of the way and I would not recommend a trip - you'll pay about 20 euros extra for the same meal anywhere on the riverfront (either side).

Dear Darlingorstimpson,
Thank you for taking the time to post your review, which is very valuable to us.
We regret that on your special day - one year engagement celebration – we did not provided you the service we are reputed to have.
Regarding the extras you mentioned we always offer a glass of white Port explaining it, so that free glass of Port is not included on the bill. The cover and water was presented as a service that we must charge since it as consumption.
Rest assured that we will continue to do our best to improve the quality of our services and standards, and we do hope to welcome you again in a near future so that you can confirm why we are known as one of the best restaurants in Porto / Gaia.
Yours truly

“The greatest dining experience in porto”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Wow. This place is incredible. The food, the views, the service. The Taylor's tour is itself fascinating, but the restaurant on another level. Go there, please.

“great food and great view”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

It´s not my first visit and it wouldn´t be my last because every time we go there the food is fantastic, the service is excellent and te waiters re very friendly, and are always ready to help in suggestion a good wine and food. This week it is Porto week and as usual we loved it, my mother eat the salmon and I had meet dish and it was fantastic and the dessert was fabulous. If you want a family meal, or business or even a romantic dinner its the right place to go. I´t's not a cheap restaurant, well worth, the staff is very professional.
I have seen same of the other reviews it doesn't look like the restaurant I go to, I have been there in several diferent occasion and always came out feeling happy and well served.
And will recomened it to everyone.
