Pleasant structure, with picturesque interior decoration and very large space for guests. Interesting mix of international dishes , although , in the market , more regional specialities sholub be better appreciated. Excellent beer ty for vegetarian also. Don't be in hurry in this place , service not so fast!!!

Lots of waiting time for an almost empty place, the waiter was extremely rude dictating where we should sit - a small awkward table near the kitchen when there were many other tables available. The cherry on the cake was when he said that I wasn’t in my country, so basically I should follow his rules.. seriously?? This was one... More

Decided to go here, as not many other options around on Sunday lunchtime. Went in with my Brazilian partner, went to the 'manager' and pointed to a table where we wanted to sit (the place was half full) he said no, that's for 4....it wasn't, it was ample for 2, then we said ok what about here - next to...

We found this by accident and decided to stop for a snack. Great atmosphere. Busy but not too crowded. Good service. Comfortable seating as well as tables for eating.

First thing to know is that the oven will be officially closed between 3pm and 7pm and you will have a very limited menu in the meantime. To be on the save side be early as the service is horribly slow! We waited a long time to place our order, just to be informed, that the oven was already closed... More

The terrace of restaurant O Mercado was an excellent place for lunch while on a break between the tourist sights of Porto. It was breezy and fresh to sit there, elevated from the street level. I enjoyed one of their salads and my partner his lasagne. Their grilled cod looked very tempting but as it was one of their lunchtime... More

Situated near the Bolsa Palace, 5-10 minutes walk from the river, is this restaurant which features a modern industrial decor. Half metal barrel chairs and some waiters in dungarees fit this scenario. The whole atmosphere of the restaurant during lunch time was okay, nothing special but adequate for a lunch meal. The restaurant is accessible by a flight of stairs... More

This was the worst service ever! We waited at least 20 minutes to order and then 30 minutes for drinks and another 30 minutes for our food. When it finally arrived they still hadn't brought us napkins or utensils. Small portions, but the food was okay.

The decor within this restaurant is modern and welcoming. Additionally, the open kitchen was great as you were able to see the chefs prepare the food. However, on entry, the waitress was quite uninterested in seating our large table and taking drinks orders. However, we just gave the benefit of the doubt that this was just a relaxed atmosphere and... More
