A modern interior greets the tourist here. Four floors to visit, our favourite was the 360 Rooftop terrace. We had port cocktails and sat on comfy settees in the sunshine and took some memorable photos. Didn't look down through the glass to the bottom floor though !

This is definitely for the young set... rooftop bar/lounge overlooks the douro and is quite striking. they make Port wine cocktails which are interesting to say the least. The space can get crowded but you can go up and have a look around for free. They do have restaurant on premises and the tour is self-guided. YOu have to book... More

We were looking for a place to drink a glass of port near the water in the sun and found the roof terrace. Loved it. Drinks were inexpensive in our opinion. We paid 2,50 per glass of port. Music was spot on, the view was great and the port was nice. Staff was nice and helpful in our search of... More

Spent a lazy afternoon on a couch next to a heater on this terrace with fantastic views of Oporto, watching the cable car go by over our heads. Casual ambiance, coffee, music,wi-fi and friendly staff.

A real joy to be here for a warm, sunny lunchtime in December (!) and to find very good food - great tapas choice, with the cheese plate, padron peppers and cod neck outstanding. Great welcome and hospitality too. I thought this would be too commercial to be worth visiting, but I was completely wrong! A memorable lunch.

A fantastic allée along the river, with a stunning view to the Porto side and boats carrying wine barrels. Don't miss a ride on the cable elevator that takes you uphill to the castle.

The Porto Cruz "cave" has an amazing rooftop terrace with views of Porto and amazing and innovative Port wine cocktails. Definitely a great place to check out for a drink or two with some snacks in the late afternoon.

We had a special Port tonic with rosemary and ginger (fantastic combination!!!) at Porto Cruz's roof top bar with an amazing night overview of Gaia and Porto! Absolutely recommend it. The bar's functioning hours in Autumn/ Winter are shorter now, closing at 7 pm but one can still go up and enjoy a drink (the staff are friendly and accomodating).

we booked in advance on a five ports and five cheeses tasting at Espaco Porto Cruz. When we arrived, there was no-one on the reception desk and staff handling the drop-in tastings didn't seem to expect our advanced booking, which had clearly not been set up. However a young member of staff took matters into her own hands and personally... More
