Wow. What an incredible restaurant, one of the best meals we've had, really friendly staff and a great setting. Stop reading reviews and just book it... you won't be disappointed.

This is fine dining of the highest quality. A small restaurant but perfectly set up. Excellent service but above all its the food and this was stellar. We had 4 different starters and 4 different main courses and every one was a delight. The salmon tartare and the salad were great and as for the main courses the veal, the... More

10-11 wee tables, most set for two, fill the small candlelit second story room that makes up Camafeu. Quiet couples dine happily, speaking in hushed murmurs. And even a solo diner like me was treated with much care by the friendly staff. I thought the food was outstanding: a cod salad with quail eggs, tapenade and greens was different with... More

Both were very helpful and Gabriel was a delight with his knowledge of both the food and the wine We chose the salmon and the cod starters - both were delicious.

Rather pretentious food; basic cooking skill is definitely there but the added fancy accompanying food clashes and ruins the centre piece of the dish e.g. Salmon tartare is far too sour and the pickled gherkins took over the salmon's taste while the fried cured ham is so tasty that it clashes and made the good taste of the beef steak...

Thanks to searching on trip advisor we found this gem. Although we didn't have a booking we were lucky enough to secure a table. This is a small intimate restaurant with exceptional staff and food. On the first floor of an old building overlooking the square it has loads of atmosphere. But it's the food that is the stand out.... More

This is highly recommended, but first a few tips: -This is small and elegant with only 8 tables. If you are looking for a boisterous evening, look somewhere else. -The restaurant is located on the second floor, and you enter the ground floor from the street through a light blue door. The signage is on the balcony above the door... More

Excellent place to relax and eat the best food in Porto! I had the octopus, it was cooked to perfection. Also, the Sangeria hit the spot since we had been out on the beach all day.

Excellent food. I had the octopus and it was fantastic. The restaurant is small and accessed by a blue door that is almost unmarked off the square. You will go upstairs and find yourself in a dinning room with 10 tables. The place is small so make a reservation (my hostel did this for me). Order whatever you like and... More

Description
On the first floor of a historical site in Porto's downtown, recently opened a small quiet restaurant, called Camafeu. Go back to the times where you had a meal at your grandparent's place, where the decor was romantic but eclectic and where you can indulge yourself on mouth-watering but not-pretentious food.At dinner time, you are invited to stay for a late drink and enjoy, through the big windows, the scenery of the square bellow (Praca Carlos Alberto, named after our late King). We invite you to try the tender Sirloin steak or the Duck with figg jam, or the Prawn porridge among other fabulous appetizers and main-courses. Everybody will love our home-made desserts. Don't forget to ask for the famous Portuguese wine from the Douro region, either it's Port, White or Red.
