Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Okay, the position of this restaurant/bar is good. On a large terrace on the beach. Windy, but that's Porto so it goes with the territory. But if you're going for lunch there are lots of places like this on the Foz seaside strip. So you'll want more. But does it deliver? Not fully. My wife's steak with fried egg was good but my Chicken Caesar salad was poor. Lettuce and Chicken. Not very interesting. A cheap dish made by a lazy chef. The dressing too over-powering and bland to taste. Vodka tonics gave us post-lunch headaches, Bad vodka. We never saw the bottle so probably they serve the cheap stuff to maximise margin. The umbrellas are way too light for the windy situation so we spent the whole lunch worrying whether the umbrella was going to take off. Once or twice it nearly did. They have this really annoying system whereby if you want something you can't ask the waiter(s) nearest to you. You have to ask the waiter assigned your table. This produces a comical chain where you ask for your waiter and several waiters, usually standing around,doing nothing, pass the word down the line until it reaches your waiter or not. This lengthens the time it takes to place an order or make a request and it's stupid. Note to management - just allow any waiter to serve any table and drop this unnecessary protocol. It's not the Ritz! Summary is that this place could be great but improvements need to be made before we go back.

Food lovely. Fantastic views, but service was poor. We had booked a table, as we had heard this was a great place for a meal and sunset views, which it was. However, the service let it down. We were seated, and had to ask to be give a menu, after other tables around us were seated and served before us. This became a common occurrence whenever we wanted to order, and we had to keep calling over staff for ordering and to follow up drinks. Meanwhile, we were brought some bread and dips, which was a nice touch, but we only realised at the end that you are charged for this. The food was lovely, and the views are astounding. We had the steak and the fish seafood stew, which were both stunning. €30 a dish is more than central prices, but happy to pay it. Overall, lovely food, views were great, but the service lets this place down. I think if we’d have left without paying, no one would have noticed. Note that there is a beach bar under the main restaurant, which is part of the restaurant. It does play loud club music, which is fine for us, but not ideal if it isn’t your thing

This is a restaurant and beach bar. We had dinner in the restaurant and it is important to note that most of the menu is designed for sharing (even the main courses). We did not know that in advance due to a lack online menu or website. The food was average but the worst thing was the terrible service from our waiter who seem disinterested in serving or giving any guidance. There are many better restaurants in Porto and the great location is not enough.

Having lunch at Praia da Luz Restaurant was an unforgettable experience. At the time we went, the restaurant was still empty, so we chose a place on the upper deck. The view was fantastic, and we were assisted by a very friendly waitress! She suggested us to order a duck, and when she saw that we liked it a lot, she was super happy! As it was too sunny, she even brought a hat for my son, and was very helpful in answering all the questions we had about the menu! It was perfect, the atmosphere, the weather that was great, the service, the delicious food, and the wonderful desserts! Unforgettable!

We order a Sangria, which is not advertised in the menu, but they say they have and they provided one of the worst Sangria ever. Too much ice, too little fruit, a quart of an apple...only and dunno about the wine. Probably will not return, ever again!

This is a great spot for a drink in a wonderful setting but do not eat here and don’t order a spritz they were completely flat and over priced. We arrived and thought the place looked amazing. DJ mixing and great atmosphere. Sadly the food was not on the same par. I had the lobster rice which had chunks of shell in it, over cooked lobster, over cooked rice, couldn’t eat it. Friends had the sea bass which was completely massacred, over cooked and full of bones. Beef over cooked, chips raw, only decent dish was the octopus. We will definitely not be returning. By far the worst and most expensive meal we have had in Porto

I have been living in Porto for 4 years and I have always avoided this bar because it looked to me just a tourist trap . But some weeks ago some friends came to Porto to visit me and one day while taking a walk in Foz,I took the chance to finally try this Bar. It was Monday,06 pm. And when we arrived I tried to call a waiter 3 or 4 times asking for a table. Nobody welcomed or replied, it was like if we were invisible . After probably the fifth attempt, a waiter answered pretty upset "you can sit wherever you want!". So we took a sit and after 10 minutes a girl bring us the menu. We tried to order a bottle of wine but again it was impossible to call the attention of any waiters. After at least 15 minutes we finally managed to order a bottle of Chardonnay (price 25€). The girl brought us a different bottle of Chardonnay saying that the other was over. We accepted and the wine was ok. Then it was the time of the bill. Once again it took a life. We got answers like "no it's not with me" or "you have to wait the person in charge". After 20 minutes we were about to leave the bar without paying , when we finally received the bill. Surprise! the price it was 34€. I asked explanation and the waitress answered that it was a different bottle of Chardonnay. I replied that on the menu there was only 1 Chardonnay and the price was 25€ but she said again "this is another Chardonnay" As we were in a hurry and we didn't want to discuss with such a ignorant people, we paid and we ran away from this ridiculous bar. That's the first and last time for sure!

Been visiting Praia da Luz frequently for the last 3 years (once every month), and apart from the already expected terrible service (employees are rude and inexperienced) it surprised me that they are not ready to open, but have already done so. All measure in place is that waiters are wearing masks. They dont sanitize after serving diferent tables, plates drinks get passed around alot and because of the masks waiters get smoke breaks often from which they also dobt sanitize (both girls serving us did this in less then 30 min). The really worrying part..the deck is in terrible condition to the point where side placard on the stairs fell almost hitting my 4 year old and when we called the waitress all we got was a shrug of the shoulders. Dont waste your money here, especially at this time when going out should be special.

Great beach bar, amazing location but poor service. Also double charged for a meal. Spoke to the manager and they said first payment was declined even though it came through on my mobile banking app. Two weeks later money still not refunded and bank can’t do anything about it ...

We came here on a recommendation, and the restaurant did not disappoint. The location, right next to the sea, is excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive, and the appetisers were delicious. We both had seafood starters. The prawns were probably the best we’d ever tasted: expertly cooked, with a hint of smokiness and citrus. The oysters were served imaginatively and were very fresh, though would have benefited from a garnish. Luckily Tabasco was on hand. The cataplana was the star of the evening. We were in awe of how fish, potatoes, clams and prawns could all be so delicious and perfectly cooked in the same dish. The cataplana easily serves two, with room for more. A good citrus pudding ended the meal. Wine was competent - a big list - and port and tonic served well.

This restaurant is one of the best I've ever been to, so much so my father wanted to cancel all our other restaurant bookings for our week in Porto and just eat here every night! The atmosphere is trendy and sophisticated, the staff are excellent, and the food is the best I've ever eaten. Not just one or two stand out dishes; every single dish was a triumph. The service is at a relaxed pace so prepare to spend several hours here mulling over wine and enjoying the glorious views.

Great service, Paula we thought was great in helping with the food & wine choices. We chose two sharing dishes, to start we had the tiger prawns and then for the main we had the tomahawk steak, both were great. The portions sizes are generous so be careful not to order too much. The timing between courses was great. We were served in the upper restaurant and not the lower terrace. We did note some of the reviews with low marks, but I can only say try it for yourself and hopefully you will have the same experience as us, great place to eat.

Amazing food, amazing view, amazing service! Stumbled onto this place as we were walking back to our accommodations, and we are so happy we did! The steak was one of the best we have ever had and the view of the beach is stunning. We went near sunset and had the best views. Our server was very attentive and provided great menu recommendations. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a great meal on the beach in Porto!

We visited here for lunch. Such a beautiful setting. Our waited was lovely and we had a delicious roast beef sandwich to share with french fries. Music was great and mixed. It was so nice we decided to travel ftom porto on our last night, sit on the terrace to watch the sunset and book the restaurant for dinner at 7.30. They took a note of our booking but when we got there they said they didn't have a booking for us however still accommodated us in a small partitioned off space inside the restaurant. The main part did start to fill up not long after we went inside to eat. We had wine on the terrace, it was a beautiful evening and the hope was to hear the waves lapping onto the shore in this lovely setting but it wasn't to be. The music was just awful. I don't know what kind of vibe they were trying to create but whatever it was it def didn't work. My husband asked the middle age DJ what music he was playing very loudly by the way and he said house music? It was truly awful and continued to boom out as we ate dinner. The food was delicious. My husband had the veal and he said was one of the best veal main courses he'd had. I had the sea bass on cauliflour puree and it was delicious also. Our waitress was delightful. Honestly we would have gone back as the setting was gorgeous but there is no way we could have suffered that music again. It's not cheap either but as I said our meals were lovely. SHAME 🫠 would have given them a 5 but for the booming awful music

The place is gorgeous, and have a great sunset view. Food is very tasty, but not cheap. Service was also very good, even though we were in a huge group. I recommend the place, we had a good time. The only thing that I did not like, is that they leave some bread with little sauces on the table, without you asking, and charge 4 Euro per person, independent if you ate or not.
