Just arrived in Porto and enjoyed a lovely experience in this very tasty place. Team members are full of care and are generously sharing Chefs passion. Try the sucking pig. Crispy as you wish... Lovely Port recommendation. Thanks!

This restaurant is in a great location with high quality food and excellent service. I'd give 5 stars but there is only one vegetarian option on the entire menu (a tiny couscous/beet salad). It was good, and the chef will make a vegetarian risotto or pasta for you if you ask, but it is not a vegetarian friendly menu. That... More

I was staying at the Intercontinental, and tried Astoria one night out of ease. We went for a three course meal and it was amazing; fine dining at its best. Great presentation, flavor and quality. Service was a bit slow, but it wasn't a noticeable issue.

We were rejected by several empty restaurants in Porto waterfront area because we didn't have a reservation. Not the case at Astoria where we were accommodated without question and we are glad we decided to end up here. The food was exceptional and the service superb and of the quality one expects of a signature restaurant at a 5* hotel.... More

Excellent food. Some staff might need training in wine service (a lot of red wine drops on the table) but everything else was very well done. We were a group of eight people and that was not a problem for the kitchen to handle. Located close to the S.Bento train station, a must see in Porto.

We had dropped in earlier in the day to make a reservation and the woman recalled our name when we showed up hours later. No small detail went unattended. The decorations provided a feeling of serenity which was welcome after a hard, hot day of sightseeing. We were seated in a small alcove by a window that allowed us to... More

This is the restaurant located in the Intercontinental Hotel. When I arrived to Porto, I had a late lunch here. The food was great and the staff is very nice.
