Wife and I had the 8 course dinner , loved it. Very nice, high class, special occasion type meal. The price for teh city of Porto is high compared to other places, BUT the same meal in the USA would cost 3 times as much. Its an upscale experience and it was worth it as "treat" on vacation.

A little quiet on a Monday night but the service and food was amazing. A free bottle of champagne and the staff made sure we had everything we needed. Food was delicious we had both tasting menus with 3 of us having 8 courses and 4 having 6. Really flexible with dietary requirements.

The restaurant belongs to the "Hotel Teatro" which is a design hotel styled around the theater-theme.... you should know that before going as it has a rather dark and "cold" ambiente. The tasting menu offered several small dishes which were all good except the "vaca maturada" which was not tender, seasoning and presentation are good, price is high. (menu 57... More

We booked a few nights in the Hotel Teatro, Porto and were tempted by the restaurant after seeing the menu, but we already had two fine dining restaurants booked so we hesitated... After Michelin awarded O Paparico recommended we give it a try though, how could we resist? And this hotel restaurant is truly excellent. The food is exceptional and... More

We had the tasting menu and accompanying wine pairing. The meal was the best we had in Porto. The staff took time to explain the dishes and wines. This meal consisted of 6 courses of food along with a chef welcome snack and a surprise anniversary cake. Would definitely recommend.

The staff were excellent in the way they served and explained each of the dishes, some excellent food very carefully presented. Very quiet though, the restaurant is hidden at the back of the hotel which itself... More

Michelin star quality food. Trying to find out if restaurant does in fact have a Michelin star. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. The food is divine.

We've had a great experience in this restaurant. Hidden behind an ugly façade, this restaurant offers fine dining in a great atmosphere with utmost friendly service. Even though the sommelier wasn't there that evening, the waitress made our evening! Thank you!
