This restaurant is tucked away up a little pedestrianised side street but it is well worth the effort to find. We visited on a busy Friday night but even so, the service was very good and friendly. The food was simply excellent - prepared and...More

There are variety of restaurant choices in Porto, maybe this is the last one you should go. Here are the reasons: unprofessional waiters: no wine list presented at the beginning. Was given after requested. Unprofessional cook: ordered an appetizer with one important ingredient missing. What...More

Amazing food, you must try their starters(try the shrimps with sweet chilly 😍). The main dish was really tasty as well. We were served by young waitress Anna and she really helped with anything. RECOMMENDED!!

This is a very cool and classy bistro in a little alley opposite Hotel Teatro. Its hard to find - be warned. The food and wine were excellent. Attentive servers. No outside seating was my only negative.
