The best restaurant in Porto, no doubt! Absolute delicious food, cozy place, excellent wine and the best service you could ask for! I'm only sorry we only got to eat there twice! It doesn't look like much from the outside, actually like nothing at all,...More

A quaint dining room with polite, friendly service at a recent dinner. We shared a bottle of Grahams red wine that was reasonably priced and delicious. My husband wanted a vodka tonic but settle with a gin and tonic. We had the salmon tartar and...More

I had extremely high hopes for Camafeu. The setting is lovely and the staff are wonderful. For a first course I had the mushrooms with blue cheese and red pepper coulis. It was simple but tasty. The entree was a seafood "casserole." It was described...More

Hello, I’m afraid but there must had been a mistake on the course you chose, because we have two different dishes: one it is a casserole not on the bread with different sea food and the other one like a bread purée only with shrimp...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.
