The setting is homely in a warm and stylish way with well spaced tables. Service was friendly efficient and nicely paced. The food was not over fussy but was beautifully executed - octopus was roasted to tender perfection and the flavours were very well balanced....More

This is a lovely friendly restaurant with a good and relaxed atmosphere. Service was good and attentive, in an elegant high ceilinged dining room. As others have said, make sure you book as there were only 22 covers. The menu of largely Portuguese dishes is...More

This restaurant is hard to find. It's like you have to enter into an apartment. But whilst there, the food was great, I had a really wonderful octopus, which, I understand is their specialty. The wine was very nice too. The service was excellent. A...More

On the first floor of a historical site in Porto's downtown, recently opened a small quiet restaurant, called Camafeu. Go back to the times where you had a meal at your grandparent's place, where the decor was romantic but eclectic and where you can indulge yourself on mouth-watering but not-pretentious food.At dinner time, you are invited to stay for a late drink and enjoy, through the big windows, the scenery of the square bellow (Praca Carlos Alberto, named after our late King). We invite you to try the tender Sirloin steak or the Duck with figg jam, or the Prawn porridge among other fabulous appetizers and main-courses. Everybody will love our home-made desserts. Don't forget to ask for the famous Portuguese wine from the Douro region, either it's Port, White or Red.
