We stopped in for lunch on a Tuesday in August after picking up guests from a Douro cruise, and frankly I expected less of a quality experience, given the restaurant's position on the touristy esplanade in Vila Nova de Gaia. However, we were warmly welcomed...More

Very expensive with really bellow average quality! If you are passing by and want to enjoy the view, try some other restaurant in the area. Not even close to the quality of several other sushi restaurants in the City.
