Took 10 minutes to receive a menu, when the drinks finally arrived the waitress wanted us to pay immediately for some reason. The view is nice but I would recommend to go somewhere else along the ribeira!

Stopped by for an early evening beverage and thought it was really reasonably priced given the location Service was attentive, olives were good and the wine was very pleasant

This place has all the potential to be a hit. They are in a great location, with the perfect sunset view, and good choice of music playing. However, I have been there a few times and every time I ask something other than beer or an expresso I was disappointed. Both the gin and tonic and wine are of poor... More

My family enjoyed a drink here at the end of a busy day in Porto. Situated under the Ponte Luis Bridge, it has great views of the river and is a lovely place to relax overlooking the bright lights of the city. Friendly staff, good prices and recommended.

If you like a good view and a beer this is the place but don't thing about ordering a meal. Service not great either. Small beer €2,5 but the views are worth it.

Fabulous location on the pier of the bridge looking along the Douro river. Music by a very good singer / pianist early evening and again late at night. Drinks reasonable prices. Waiter will ask you to pay for drinks on delivery until he gets to know you.

Fantastic location, but that's all that is good. Waiter took ages to bring menu, ages to take order and ages to bring drinks - only 2 cold drinks, one in a can and the other beer. Got bill and paid, but didn't have correct money......waiter didn't bring change as he said he would. We left. Pointless waiting, as we had... More

The restaurant has one of if not the best locations on the Douro River. Great views along both banks, you can sit with a beer and watch the boys jump from the bridge. The big let down today was the very slow service and waiting staff fighting with kitchen staff for all the customers to hear and watch.

Even though it was a cold winter's night in Porto, the Ponte Luis' lights that reflected on the Douro river made for a spectacular sight! The restuarant's food wasn't amazing, let's be honest, but the view made up for it. We had a luke warm soup and some red wine, but fell in love with that amazing bridge towering above... More
