We had a very pleasant diner the first time and decided to go back for another meal without regret! The fish soup was delicious and so was the main corse, feuillitė de dorade. The waitress Sabine was very chearfull and enthousiastic. We had a great time!!! A pity that we are leaving tomorrow.

Went there after a day on the boat. Very friendly staff. We asked to be moved as someone near us was smoking and they were very accommodating Can highly recommend

Obviously, the lunch in this restaurant is included in the package for bus day-trips, as there was a large and very noisy group of tourists on the terrace. We managed to find place on the other side, which was also crowded. The place looked really popular. The service was not particularly enthusiastic or friendly. I had an impression, that for... More

We were a little apprehensive about the restaurant reviews in Porto, many go back to 2015, and seemed to have a theme of "hit and miss" in Porto restaurants. We spent some time as we walked the streets carefully looking options. Liked the look of this restaurant, and decided to give it a try. We were delighted with our meal,... More

My wife and I had lunch at this restuarant yesterday. We had fish after talking to a couple sitting at the table next to us. The woman had just finished her fish and spoke English well enough to convince us the fish was good. Thanks to her we also enjoyed ours.

After looking at the menus of almost all of the restaurants in the area, we finally settled on this one. It's right on the main walk through the village, near the citadel. We were seated right away and the service was great. We took the brocciu cannelloni and the souris d'agneau, with tiramisu for dessert. A great meal!

Restaurant located close to Porto's Tour Genoise. Tables in the terrace outside. Tourist trap. Decent food quality but too expensive. Friendly service.

Very popular restaurant. We arrived at about 9PM and it was still hard to get a table, but once seated it was all worth it. Seafood is a specialty however there were many other choices as well (including vegetarian).

Thank CABigBob
