I went with my girlfriend to eat some pork ribs, the servant told me that its not on the menu because it usually takes them 45 minutes to cook ribs but the plate arrived 10 minutes after i ordered. We both ate everything even tho we kind of felt a weird flavour, i went home happy but woke up at... More

The food is ok but the bread and accompanyments that are brought and left on the table are incredibly expensive over €20 for 2 plates bread and ham and 2 baskets of bread. Avoid.

I went with my friends and got multiple bad treatments and many mistakes from the waiters. My coldfish was all carbonized and when I asked for change, they answered "that was the way of eating it in Portugal" and didn't wanted to change it. Besides that, they tried to hide it with vegetables on the top. Then, we were obligated... More

The food is quite good, but there are a different price and a different location for foreign people (= tourists) and for Portuguese people: you receive a menu and you can see the difference between the prices for the same meal. That's really unfair and unpolite. Choose another place to have lunch/dinner!

A bit touristic maybe but the food was great and wine nice too. If you are nearby you can definitely try it.

The waiter saw us coming and immediately seated us. We were brought menus and five sausages to be going on with. There was a long wait for the food. Unfortunately despite us checking at the time of ordering only one salmon dish had been cooked rather than the three we wanted. I can't figure out why the waiter thought 5... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant as when I sat down I thought it was just a standard tourist place and so the food wouldn't be great. My pork belly steak was really tasty and the portion was big. Its worth asking what sides come with the food so that you can change them if you'd prefer rice/veg etc.... More

Our Airbnb host, a Porto native, recommended this place to us specifically for the peri peri chicken. I am so glad that we followed his advice, as this meal was my favorite in Porto. My partner and I both agreed that this was possibly the best chicken we had ever eaten. The portions were really big and the sides of... More

There's only one dish I eat here. Picanha, it's served with black beans and farofa and couve mineira (dark green leaves cabbage). It's very good. But the service isn't very good, the food it's average, in the winter it's a cold restaurant, it's not cheap like other restaurants in Porto. You have a lot of better options around.
