Perfect choice for a good lunch in a sunny day on the riverside. From the windows you can enjoy the view of the Tago river sheltered from the wind. The menu is various: you can choose between salads, tapas, fish, meat and traditional portuguese plates,...More

Stopped and had a beer with friends. Did not try the food. Service was a little slow and they made us pay when the drinks were delivered as if we were going to skip out.

This afternoon we wanted to drink something at the border of the river Dourdes (Porto). We went to Café do Cais. Don’t go there! It takes a very long time before you are served by a bored looking waiter. It takes even longer before you...More

Over priced for tasteless dishes. We had cod balls and rustic chips as starters. Chips ok with a garlic dip but the cod balls reminded me of the Findus cod balls we were given as a child. My main dish of smoked salmon salad was...More
