What a cute family restaurant. It was very small with dinners cooked to order. The seafood was very fresh. Our waiter was able to explain the choices and make recommendations. A very nice dining experience.

I've used Rick Steves' books for many trips, and this restaurant is mentioned on pg.312 of the 8th edition [Portugal]. Seek this one out.

Had dinner at this restaurant, its small and have a few tables outside. Its nice to sit outside, had the grilled shrimps and they came with a pot of delicious tomatoes with rice. Good wine. Friendly staff and good service. Reasonable price. It was a lovely meal. Do book in advance in avoidance of disappointment.

This restaurant outside of the main streets in Porto is a great choice. We had bacalhao A grade and Camarao Grelhado, both simply great, specially the bacalhao, with a perfect texture and just the right saltiness. The house white wine was nice too, all for 20 € per person with coffee.

Great little place in a side street, just back from the riverside. Good and helpful service, accompanied by simple, no frills, well cooked food. The oven baked octopus is delicious if rustic! grilled shrimps perfect. Not fine dining but very authentic.

Tucked away up a small street this small family restaurant has been there 35 years. Solid home style Portuguese cooking. Four of us really enjoyed a three course meal with a decent bottle of red and complimentary port for 128 euros.
