We arrived late into Porto and couldn’t get a booking at any of the restaurants we wanted. Palco was available and we were very pleased with the choice. The food was very good and the service was very efficient.

We were in the Restaurant Vinum the night before and had a great experience there. The service and food were perfect. The evening at the Palco was a disappointment. We had reserved a table. And although the restaurant was almost empty, we should sit down...More

We had the 8 course tasting menu and thought it was delicious. We were surprised that this restaurant does not have a Michelin star. There were a few stand out moments. The tangerine and coriander pre-dessert had us a bit worried, but we were blown...More

We stumbled onto this place by accident,and what a lucky find. We had the six course tasting menu with accompanying wines for €65+ €25 each. It was beautifully presented by the chef and elegantly served by the lovely Angolan/Portugese hostess and the very excellent sommelier,...More

We had the tasting menu (€80) plus wine pairings (€35). The amuse bouches were a bit odd to be honest - frozen melon and a tacky potato skin which while clever didn't do much on the palate. The best dishes were the crayfish and the...More

So the Michelin guide recommended this restaurant, and for a very very good reason. Even though it's situated in a hotel with a corny decor, the food was INCREDIBLE. We ordered the two different tasting menus which effectively presented us with 14 different courses and...More
