We came here for dinner. We were seated quickly. After ordering, my meal was brought out but my wife's was not. After waiting thirty minutes longer her meal was brought. It was cold on arrival. The octopus was cold and chewy. Since it's directly across from Liberdade Square the prices were higher than some of the other restaurants in the... More

"AVENIDA" Restaurant has very pleasant conditions: great indoor space with a nice dècor and great outdoor seating. The only problem is that the food it serves is a total disaster! It is inadmissible the lack of quality it caters and does not correct it! Bad quality and almost served cold. No wonder the restaurant is mainly empty! Please stay away... More

Not great try one of the other next door. They look to have better tables etc but with this comes a slight air of superiority from the waiting staff who we had to ask several times for things. They couldn't have been less interested. I had the steak which was hard work (chewy) in a bland sauce. All in not... More

We have been there on a Saturday evening. The place was not very crowded and we found easy a table. The view is nice but there isn't much space between the tables (you can also smell the cigarette smoke from people dinning at the restaurant next to Avenida) There are 3 waitresses for the outdoor tables and it seems that...

After we ordered 2 mains and 1 starter, it took them more than 30 minutes to get to our table and explain that they didn't have the fish we ordered... We chose something else and it was another 30 minute wait. Compared to other restaurants in the city it was very bad. Everyone in the restaurant was waiting for more... More

Been in Porto for one week and this was by far the worst experience in Porto. In fact, it was by far the worst restaurant experience I've had in years. My girlfriend and I ordered the Bacalhau and the grilled seabass. The bacalhau we read online as one of their specialties here. After waiting patiently for one hour, we start... More

Great staff with mouthwatering food. We had a fabulous evening here. The staff were wonderful to us, helping us with explanations and recommendations. We had clams with garlic, lemon juice and corriander (starter) and the codfish for mains. The portions were generous and delicious. The staff wished us well as we left. Happy experience!

Thank Seema1357
