This was my fourth visit and again the food, service and experience was amazing. Brought my fuzzy eater, grandson, who ate like it was his last meal. He loved the olives, bread, garlic shrimp, pasta and said he wants to go back again. He said he wants to come back soon. I had the shrimp, asparagus risotto and was in... More

We went as a group of 5 ladies on a Saturday night. The restaurant was very busy, but nevertheless the service was friendly and patient, even though one friend arrived very late, and we asked to change the table 'configuration'... the staff was very accommodating. (Only when I asked if the carrot soup could be made without cream, I got... More

I visited the restaurant during a Business lunch. The "mittag menu" was very good and varied. The atmosphere was nice and cozy, service quick and attentive. The bread and dip they served along with the meal was really good also, it is a detail but normally the bread the restaurants serve isn´t that good. I absolutely recommend the place.

Not really authentic portuguese cuisine; its kind of portuguese cuisine adapted to german taste( some of the combinations are very strange!). The quality of the products used is good, wines and portuguese beer ,strange mix of desserts: natas do ceu, pasteis de nata but then you'll also find tiramisù( not that much portuguese i guess...).

We had a very nice evening in the good located restaurant. The personal was really friendly and was always up for a joke. The drinks were cool and a seafood plate before as well. As main dish I took a Tuna steak, but I honestly expected a bigger one. Summarized, we enjoyed the warm atmosphere and I will definitely coming... More

We had lovely food, gamba's and mixed meat dish. A bottle of red wine to complete. Very tasty and a good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Other guests know this place... More

I have tried all of the other Portuguese restaurants in the city, for more than once and tasted the more demanding traditional dishes ( bacalhau , cataplana de peixe , grelhada de peixe , etc etc) ... Although Rio Douro doesn't have a wide variety of dishes ( which I prefer , few and superbly done) is second by none... More

This is delicious and reasonably priced Portuguese restaurant run by Portuguese family. Try fish dishes and of course don't miss coffee and pastel de nata.

We love this place. The food is delicious. I don't particularly enjoy the outside seating as it is too close to the traffic but inside it is nice and cosy. It can quite well serve for a romantic date in the evenings when it is not too crowded. Service is either very friendly or bordering rude, depending on who is... More

My wife and I have been going here regularly since we discovered it about 6 months ago. We love the food, I love the salmon and have had problems ordering other items as it is always so good. The staff is very friendly and the experience is always nice. It is a comfortable place to eat, reasonable prices and pretty... More
