We have been to numerous all-inclusive resorts in PC and this time, we were meeting friends for dinner outside the resort. We decided to visit O' Porto and were not disappointed. When we entered it was like we were family. You not only receive a warm greeting at the door but the wonderful odour of food cooking built our anticipation... More

The service was amazing, the staff friendly and the food absolutely mouth watering. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for a great dining experience. We look forward... More

On our last night at Tortuga Bay, we visited O'Porto on the recommendation of 2 of our concierges. The food was delicious, the decor beautiful and welcoming, and the service outstanding. We spent most of our meal chatting with Antonio, one of the owners. He was delightful, interesting and SO helpful. We were only sorry that we ate at O'Porto... More

I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone staying in Punta Cana. Authentic Portugese venue, friendly staff, wonderful owners who are onsite. I had the cod, my friends had the steak, we all left very happy and pleased with the meal and atmosphere. I plan to return before the end of my trip.
