The octopus was literary to die for. Simply cooked with veggies but so tasty that it made you cry and smile at every bite. The service was so lovely and friendly. We loved it. I would recommend this place without any hesitation.

Not the poshest or modernest of places but the place has an old fashioned charm of its own. The menu has something to please everyone and the food is nicely cooked and very reasonably priced. The friendly owner usually gives you a little shot of extremely good port before you leave.

This place is nice, the people are really lovely. The owner speaks both French and Portuguese(didn't speak English so not sure about it), not that much food choices but what they do they do it great. I could go there again.

This restaurant is a few minutes walk from the Boa Vista Hotel in the Foz area of Porto. The incredibly friendly owner is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wine, and can recommend a wine to accompany each course of your meal. Mainly seafood is served though there are some meat dishes too. The cod in onion sauce is excellent. Recommended!

Went there for lunch yesterday. Deep fried fish fillets was dry and cold, the vegetables cold cabbage and carrots, the potatoes deep fried chips so salted it was not eatable. When I complained I was offered fruit salad on the house- some fresh apple snd orange, most of it canned.

Went with my family for a quick lunch. Ordered 2 plates between the four of us. The white fish was sensational - wish we had ordered more. The service was really friendly and very prompt. A lovely place to stop for time out of the sun in a traditional Porto restaurant. I would definitely return.

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch after riding the classic tram car out from ancient Porto. We had veal chop, a daily special of codfish balls that were fried, rice with beans, espresso with a chocolate desert, simply wonderful. I would gladly go back for another meal.
