For a waterfront cafe, this place is totally worth the money you spend for the wonderful views and reasonably good food, with somewhat slow service. We were here for lunch on a sunny afternoon, had to sit inside the restaurant as the outside was full...More

The cafe is in a lovely spot in the heart of the world heritage site, just beside the Douro. We did not eat here but had quite a few late night coffees and brandies. Very good Irish coffee but maybe not cheap at 9 euros....More
