We stopped in here after dinner for a glass of port and some cheese. What a beautiful, classy cafe!!! Friendly staff as well. It's easy to imagine the upper crust of Porto society in the 1920s going there to see and be seen, or an author writing a book during visits there. Just be prepared for the prices, as they... More

It looks really very nice and cosy, but I have not liked, that I should have wait in line in front of the door. And then you have to pay 5€ for one Capuchino. So I have only seen it through the windows. For me it was not worth to wait outside.

Stylish café with décor redolent of the belle époque, including slightly alarming grinning cherubs. Service was surprisingly prompt, and very friendly and efficient. The food is similar to what you might get in many other places, whereas I'd imagined it might feature a vast range of tempting cakes, etc. The café is heavily promoted to tourists and so you may...

If you're not worried about paying 3 times more than in any other cafe of Porto and you want to check a little piece of the city's history you've come to the right place. The multi-lingual waitresses and waiters are delightful and mostly efficient. The turn-around is high and there always seem to be people at the door waiting to... More

We had dinner here twice. It is not an extensive menu but the steak sandwich was excellent and sea bass very nice. Smartly dressed staff, wonderful leather seats. Try the Castello D'Alba Vinhas Velhas, most excellent wine.

The inside has beautiful wooden carvings. Coffee is delicious evan as the pastel de nata. It might be very full and even a cue. Prices are... More

A tea room in traditional style with period decor and lighting. They sell many other drinks and food but a lovely traditional place to while away the time!

Over rated, expensive establishment. A place to be seen in by the well to do in Porto? Tourist go there for mystic feel, definitely not the food. A better quality could be had at any adjoining restaurants for HALF the price. Meal for two €95!!
