Not only should you visit this place if you visit Porto you should make the journey to Porto and Portugal just to go here. A roof top terrace with views across the Douro combined with a sublime drink selection. Relaxed, comfortable, vibrant just genuinely chilled.

This is definitely for the young set... rooftop bar/lounge overlooks the douro and is quite striking. they make Port wine cocktails which are interesting to say the least. The space can get crowded but you can go up and have a look around for free. They do have restaurant on premises and the tour is self-guided. YOu have to book... More

We were looking for a place to drink a glass of port near the water in the sun and found the roof terrace. Loved it. Drinks were inexpensive in our opinion. We paid 2,50 per glass of port. Music was spot on, the view was great and the port was nice. Staff was nice and helpful in our search of... More

Spent a lazy afternoon on a couch next to a heater on this terrace with fantastic views of Oporto, watching the cable car go by over our heads. Casual ambiance, coffee, music,wi-fi and friendly staff.

A real joy to be here for a warm, sunny lunchtime in December (!) and to find very good food - great tapas choice, with the cheese plate, padron peppers and cod neck outstanding. Great welcome and hospitality too. I thought this would be too commercial to be worth visiting, but I was completely wrong! A memorable lunch.

A fantastic allée along the river, with a stunning view to the Porto side and boats carrying wine barrels. Don't miss a ride on the cable elevator that takes you uphill to the castle.
