I have to say that this restaurant was the only one that disappointed us in a month's travels throughout Portugal. The one and only thing it really has going for it is its situation overlooking the Douro River - particularly impressive once night falls. We booked in to listen to an evening of fado music but were not told that... More

The food and service are good and the price is correct. We had a broiled cod with lots of olive oil and potatoes. Appetitizers are excellent. But do reserved before you go as you may want to watch the show of Fado inside. The outside tables are very cold at night but the view of the D"Ouro river is amazing... More

The night before our river cruise, we stopped in at our hotel's recommendation, and we stopped in again the night we came back from our cruise as we liked it so much. The food was fantastic: traditional Portuguese with a flair. Our first visit we had the port pairing menu, and there was a surprisingly large amount of food for... More

We had not booked in advance, but turned up on the Sunday evening, and were given a table for four. The waiter was efficient, the order taken and all seemed to be going well. We were not made aware of the entertainment - consisting of two musicians and songs sung (in my opinion not very harmoniously by the Owner/Manager, on... More

Beware, the restaurant turns into a performance venue with the manager singing (badly), and while she is singing she tells everybody to be quiet and the staff cannot serve you. So good luck if you need oil, salt, etc. for 20 minutes. If you do manage to get a waiter's eye, they give you a time out sign and then... More

Although our reservation was not entered, they were able to accommodate us in the room with the Fado which is what we wanted. Waiter helpful, good English. Food excellent. Husband and wife Fado singers engaged the crowd. Everything we ate and drink excellent. One of our party was returning to Porto 2 weeks later and returned to the restaurant.

Immagine your are looking for an authentic Portugese restaurant, with traditional portugese music and great food surrounded by candels and nice view. ... well then is the place to go. We had an unforgettable evening. The unique thing that makes the restaurant unique is that the owners create the athmosphere by singing national portugese songs on their own. We hardly... More

We didn't choose to go to the restaurant for the Fado but it was when we were booking we were told that they had a room in the restaurant where we could enjoy both the food and Fado. It seemed a good idea which it proved to be. Food and wine were both enjoyable. The Fado was the first that... More

Very family local restaurant that offered fado. Great music. The room is a bit boring but in the end the music and food made up for it!!

This was definitely our favourite meal we had on our recent trip to Porto. Great food, quick service, friendly staff, and in a lovely location right on the waterfront. Ticks all the boxes!
