Had the most tasteless tuna tataki of my life! The fish didn't look a good colour at all. Couldn't finish it. I wish I could reverse the event to get my money back and clear my memory of that bland dish. Creme brûlée dessert was pathetically small in a 1cm high pan. Also, an extra bottle of wine was added...

I was hesitant to go here after seeing a few bad reviews but I was pleasantly surprised. The service was good, very kind, the atmosphere is perfect for a relaxing lunch and it's not too pricey like many other restaurants in this neighborhood. The tapas menu is the way to go! Highly recommend the shrimp bulhao pato!

Visited this place after a couple of suggestions from close friends. Fresh and tasty food which didn't take long to arrive but i noticed that the floor team wasn't really prepared to sell. The explanations of the menu weren't really clear although the waiter said he started there not long ago. The first white sangria came really well done, the... More

Whenever I'm in Porto this is a must visit. I really love the small tapas and plates (great fresh seafood) and the people and owners are very welcoming. You can meet very different people there and it's a great place for a chat. Love the food and drink selection. Highly recommendable restaurant/bar when in Foz do Douro!

The place is really nice and cosy and the lady very kind. We had a cheap and good lunch menu: soup, codfish with insalata russa, wine and coffee for 8 euros.

Small cosy restaurant in a terrace and two floors. The food is quite innovative though based on culinary "evergreens", like tuna tartare, risotto and portuguese cod elaborations. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

The service was terrible. After sometime waiting, we got the menus and asked immediately for two botles of sparkling water while choosing. After 15 minutes, not having yet got the water, we noticed there were 3 waiters around the bar talking with each other but doing nothing. I had to stand up and asked them to bring the water and...

This small restaurant is one of several dotted along Rua Senhora da Luz, close to the Boa Vista Hotel in the Foz area of Porto. We arrived at around 6.30pm and chose items from the snack/tapas menu: pimentos padron as a sharer (5 euro); a mini francesinha (6 euro) and a 'hamburger guloso' (8 euro). The food was very tasty...
