Melhor Sabor's food is fantastic, and it has restaurant has a great familiar environment with very nice staff. It has an amazing price/quality relation. Highly recommend the roast beef and as a desert, I believe that he best one is the strawberry pavlova This restaurant has super fast wifi and the owners do everything to make you feel comfortable!

The stuff was really helpful with explaining the menu in english as we don't speak any Portuguese. The food was amazing and cheap. They made us a dessert plate with 3 different desserts to try, because we couldn't decide which dessert we want.

I've been in this restaurant a few dozen times and there is not a bad thing I could say against it. The food is great, and really well valued. The staff is always happy to help and are usually always spot on on what food is the best that day. The deserts are divine especially the "Doce de leite condensado".... More

Best price/quality in the west part of Porto, helpful staff. Nice food, fast service and economic, if you want something more sofisticated go at dinner, because at lunch speed is privileged. "Timbal de camarão" or "Timbal de Alheira" are great.

Nice local restaurant with a good variety of Portuguese food and Brazilian food, drinks and sweets (deserts). Lunch is around 5 euros and dinner with drinks and desert less than 15 euro. One of the few restaurants that you can walk in without worries in communication and enjoy the hospitality being offered.

It is a little out of the touristic path, but still at the city centre, not far from the sea. Located in a selected residential area, you will find the high points of this restaurant to be the atmosphere (at medium light) and the dessert (don't miss the brigadeiro pie). In between the food is good and the staff is... More
