Had an affordable meal and large beer here. Had to chase the waiter on 3 occasions either for the olives I ordered, salt and pepper and the beer. He was prompt will the bill though?!

We visited this restaurant on our first day, we both had salads for lunch and shared the rustic chips with garlic sauce, excellent. Went back for drinks, then again for lunch, very friendly staff, very busy but great atmosphere and the views are amazing, wonderful setting.

Good views of the bridge and river but a bit overpriced. Ok if just needing a drink. Can get busy as is a tourist trap.

この店はカフェなので、料理がとてもおいしい、ということはないが、 ビールもワインもあり、ランチやティータイムに利用するならいい選択肢だと思う。 店内・テラスともに清潔で、かつ広々しており、ソファシートも多い。 We enjoyed beer and wine. The food is so-so because this is a cafe. I think it is a good choice if you visit here for lunch or tea time. Both inside the cafe and the terrace are clean and spacious, with many sofa seats.

came here twice during a 4 day stay - once for early evening drinks and tapas and another time for lunch. Its on the waterfront with super views, local wine very drinkable, tapas were good & lunch choices too (more expensive than other cafes but worth paying for the view). Not rushed to leave our table. Service slow but friendly... More

Overpriced but great location. Really slow and not attentive service. I had the tuna sallad and it was all right, so was the caprese salld and the hamburger my friends ate but we had to wait 45 minutes from order to service at 2 o'clock on a friday lunch.

We knew it would be a tourist trap because of the location but seemed the best of a bad bunch and we wanted to spend our last meal in Porto by the river and bridge. It was more expensive than other places we had been to, again you pay for the view. Vegetarian options were limited and not the most... More

We sat outside here for some drinks last weekend; the only available seats were tall backless benches, so we weren't going to linger. Attracting a waiter to serve us took nearly 15 minutes. Good beers and wine though, but we hadn't the time to hang around for a second round. Nice location, just needs to speed up it's table service.... More

Despite the good location, prices are obviously at a premium but quality is very low. Do not recommend.
