Under recommendation of the receptionist of our hostel, we went for dinner to this place with my girlfriend and we can't find proper words to describe how good it was. It's a bit hard to get up to there as it is hidden and uphill. As you get inside it seems a family restaurant pretty much cosy. We first had... More

We visited Adega Vila Mea on our last night in Porto, and we were not disappointed! As per the reviews we had read, the portions were massive...Word of advice, a half portion is more than enough for one person! We had the bacalhau and sardines, both of which were delicious. The service was great, and the atmosphere very authentic. We... More

No tricks cuisine, just the good old popular food in a good old popular environment, with the good old nice and professional service. We had "filetes de pescada" with "arroz de legumes" (red beans and cabbage stewed rice). The fish was fresh and well seasoned. For desert, everyone should try the "leite creme", the portuguese version of "crême brulée". It... More

We went there for lunch with our family we had the best octopus we have had in Spain and Portugal, simply amazing! Portions are really big. You can tell is a family run restaurant where all family members are helping out grandchildren, grandma, aunts .. Nice and rare find we stumble upon walking around Porto. Recommended!

Authentic atmosphere and friendly service. I ordered the vegetable soup which was nice but the beef dish I ordered was overcooked, bland and overpriced (12 euro). Maybe I ordered wrong.

good, typical food, huge portions, delicious wine: the 1/2 doce which is usually for one person is really huge you can hardly finish, the atmosphere is a typical portugues familiar one, sometimes the family with 3 generations sits and one of the tables, fresh and delicious food

The portion sizes are massive-I love my grub but even for me a... More

A traditional restaurant, worth visiting, where you can find Portuguese traditional food. DOn't be afraid of trying different recipes, or ask for support the local employees.

Nice and historical restaurant in a typical Oporto street. Menu is short, and options available were even shorter. Octopus was ok, but not amazing. Wine is good with good price. Overall: not disappointing, but some more care to the food and service would make it much better
