Mindblowing octopus and very Good steak. Nice atmosphere, because of the fireplace, where we were lucky to be seated. Very polite and friendly service. Also big portion and decent prices. If I come back some day to Porto I will visit them again.

We were recommended to this place by our hotel. The restaurant wasn't too busy except for one table of very noisy diners. We were ignored most of the evening, it took an hour to be served a bowl of unseasoned soup then after some time trying to get a waiters attention we got up and found the salt and pepper... More

Took the recommendation of the hotel and went to this restaurant for dinner. Love the decoration of the restaurant and waiters and waitresses are all very friendly. I ordered pan grilled sole with butter sauce, potatoes and vegetables on the side. Unfortunately, the fish is way over cooked. Vegetables is very oily. It's quite disappointing. Dessert I picked the almond... More

Location is good and easy to find. We ate off the gourmet set menu which included wine. We both had the same. The starter of codfish balls as ok. Came quickly which gave the impression that it was going to be a quick meal but did slow down so not rushed. Main was the beef steak which was cooked rare... More

We were walking around the city and we were welcomed in and given a table right away for 5 of us. The service was fast. Staff were friendly . The food was good and typical Portuguese cuisine. Nothing extraordinary. The meal was just warm. We didn't eat any of the bread & olives but still got charged 10 euros. Other... More

Hello Ana R. Regrettably it took a not so positive image as we intended, our stance is of seriousness towards our customers, unfortunately it seems that someone missed, having this happened just like their exposure, it was a shame that they had not warned us at the time for that fact, Would have been immediately rectified.

Nice place in Porto. It's a very old restaurante with a very rustic feel. We went for lunch and there were not many people in there. The menu was extensive and featured many traditional Portuguese dishes. We enjoyed the starters (bread crisps and olives) but note that they will charge you for it. We had the cod fish croquettes which... More

Codfish and Octopus are the specialities, both in the oven. I had nice starters too - a dish of pâtés, salmon with mascarpone, grilled tiger prawns - all finely done and poorly garnished. They also use to have Tournedos Rossini and a local Clams stew.
