We'd been waiting for over 30 minutes for ordering our food, no eye contact at all. The food is average and it cones with starters by default. Trouble is that they charge as much as 11 € for starters. The wine is of decent value given the price.

We are sorry you had to wait to be served, sometimes that can happen, and is a thing we are trying to improve. We would like however to clarify that our starters consist in olives, bread, lupins and seasoned carrots, that costs each 1€ for a total of 4€, so we think that you probably mistaken some of our other...

A friend who lives in Porto made reservations for us when we visited in September. There are two sittings, and the meal consists of several dishes as well as desert. The cost is very reasonable for the amount of food. The food is delicious Portuguese cuisine and the variety of the dishes was outstanding. Please make your reservations far in... More

This is a cute place by Clerigos Tower. They appear to be really understaffed or just slow. I waited over 30 minutes before the waitress even approached me. This includes my telling her I was sitting outside and when she didn't show up, I ended up moving inside but still I waited. I was actually really excited that I found... More

This is a turistic place, not traditional as they say, the idea is not bad, they have different little options, like tapas. However at the end is not that cheap (if you compare it with other places around) and in my case, i tried the cod fritters, but they let them on top of the table for several of minutes... More

We thank you for your comment, but we must say we take pride in serving traditional portuguese food, to all our costumers, whether they are local or tourist. But we do enjoy having people form other countries visiting us and tasting our traditional flavours, that we think are at a fair price. More

Close to the (very strange) photographic museum this little tapas bar provided somewhere to regroup. The lack of menu (it is written on the front window) was mildly irritating, but the food was absolutely wonderful and generous in size. Fish and cheese pie and the slow-cooked pork were first rate. A couple of beers and a bill for under 20... More

We stumbled across this place and were so happy we did. The menu offers lots of local tidbits, so we got to taste many things rather than one central dish. I love to eat this way, particularly when discovering a new cuisine. The wait staff was friendly and very helpful. When we mentioned that some of us were vegetarian and... More

Cosy place, great service & delicious and simple petiscos! Honest prices. You are welcomed with some vegetable snacks, then you get some cheese and ham and finally you can taste a selection of traditional snacks. Plus good wine ;) Very friendly, casual atmosphere and nice location.
