We decided to walk along the coast from Porto old town to Cafeina as it was a lovely day and we had made a reservation for a late lunch. It was the perfect way to work up an appetite. We booked in advance using the fork app on tripadvisor. When we arrived we were seated in the non smoking section,... More

The food was lovely but it was completely destroyed by the fact that people actually smoked inside in this restaurant.

A chef cuisine, a reference restaurant in Porto, for clients that apreciate an elaborated gastronomy. This is not the kind of place you want to fast meal, you have to be paciente, and enjoy your meal. The service is good, although it is not exceptional. The food, is elaborated, well performed, but is not outstanding. At the end, still good... More

My husband and I had an enjoyable meal at this lovely restaurant. We were staying in the downtown area of Porto but it was worth the Uber ride. My husband enjoyed the seafood soup and his unusually prepared pork. My tuna tartar was good and I enjoyed the leg of lamb (it was the actual leg). Our only disappointment was... More

We booked this restaurant via the fork website and we were not disappointed. The staff were excellent and we were greeted with a complimentary glass of prosecco as it was my birthday which was a nice touch. The food and service was excellent and the goats cheese tart was so good. A beautiful cake with candle was presented at the... More

We had a lovely meal here but it took a while for our orders to be taken and food to the the table. Likewise it took us a while to receive the bill - although this could perhaps be because we are used to the pace of service in London. They didnt seem that busy wither but perhaps short on... More

I had heard so many great things about this place and it's gotten some awards but I was very disappointed in the food and the presentation. Our food was cold and the flavors were not what they should be.

The place is modern and attractive, the service is kind but not phantastic, and the food was disapointing - one year ago we loved it but not this time. The shrimps were a little overcooked, the meet not particular tasty or smooth, the chocolat cake average.

Thank Helena A
