Local food with some dishes of the day (fish and meat) to choose from. Delicious in my case for the cod dish with rice. Great price and incredibly fast service. Totally worth the visit.

地點不好找,也沒有確切的營業時間,當晚我們是19:15進入。 菜有點鹹,但價格跟服務都很好! Das Restaurant ist nicht so deutlich vom Aussicht, man kann einfach verpass. Gute price und nett. This restaurant is without any mark from outside. But it serves good food with low price.

This restaurant was recommended to me by the owner of the apartment where i stayed. Popular with locals, I went for an early lunch and the place filled up quickly. The menu is small, there were 2 daily meals to chose from. I had fish which was fresh and tasty. The chocolate mousse was amazing :-)

Visited here as recommended by our apartment manager at shining view. Lovely little family run restaurant. No written menu but they took us in kitchen to show us the food that was on offer as we didn't understand Portuguese. Food was fantastic, very tasty with local specialities of cod and veal. Service great, food excellent and cost very reasonable. Would... More

Don't miss this little restaurant in central Porto! On one of the hilly cobbled streets you will find the familiar restaurant that doesn't have a menu and where you will have the tastiest comfort food made with fresh ingredients. See what they have on the day written on a chalkboard and get some house wine. The soup was fantastic and... More

The food is prepared by totally sweet and talented mom, head of the family running restaurant, you can tell it's done with love and passion. She always makes sure everything is ok. They only serve specific things each day depending on the ingredients they buy. It was really amazing, atmosphere is very friendly and cozy. I'd definitely visit again!

I found this restaurant through the Lonely Planet Porto guide book. It was a really good find for lunch as it is very local, with a very small menu and inexpensive. Service was fast by the family owners, and I had a grilled swordfish steak which was delicious.
