A great area to wander, sit and have a few drinks or a snack or even a meal. Lots of good restaurants to choose from. Beware though some of the bar/cafes put cakes on the table as though for free and even suggest that, but obviously charge you for them, Nout for nout in this world!

We loved this part of Porto, the winding streets and waterfront of the Ribiera was perfect, street entertainment and massage chairs overlooking the Douro river was a perfect setting. Day or night this is the spot to sit back, relax and people watch. Enjoy!

Lots of mid price restaurants. The food was spot on. Local dishes mixed with other styles. Buzzing area after 7pm. Great views across the river. Fantastic.

Great area on the Porto riverfront overlooking Gaia. Lots of restaurants and places to take pictures of the city. Also, near the Ponte luis bridge and funicular

Iconic place to visit the Porto wine caves, get a tour and see all the process. Take a walk in Cais and get a look to Porto, to the Bridges, get the teleférico ... so much to see Try the food on a local and tradicional restaurant And enjoy

Such a beautiful, romantic area, easily accessible from the city centre ( albeit there are some steep slopes or, if you prefer, lots of steps.) You don't have to spend much to sit at the Riverside cafés and have a snack/ drink while soaking up the atmosphere of the city. Not to be missed.

Loads of restaurants and bars line this riverside street along with buskers, living statues and souvenir stalls. Quite a trap for the tourist but most of us are anyway! Here you can catch the river taxi to cross to the other side or catch a boat for a river trip or catch the sun going down and Porto light up.
