We had an amuse bouche followed by a wonderful four course meal in Largo do Paco whilst we were staying at the Casa da Calcada. We finished the meal with coffee and typical Portuguese petit fours that included a small Pastel da Nata pastry, chocolate, and the particular version of papo d'anjo that originates in Amarante. We really enjoyed the... More

Sand in the scallops and tough Duck Confit. Certainly not Michelin star standard. However, breakfast was excellent.

Had a great experience here with a five course meal and excellent white and red wine. The atmosphere was very provincial but eclectic.

TripAdvisor rating system does not cater for this restaurant with only 5 stars available - this establishment is 6 stars. The food is simply stunning and of world class. The staff were exemplary and explained every dish in detail (in English!). The chef 'amused our bouches' with 3 courses of several items each before we even got to the first... More

We visited this restaurant for a lunch, took 6 course menu (95€pp). The staff was professional and highly trained, explained each dish and was very attentive. When you visit Michelin restaurant, you are more about enjoying the food, than about eating. But we were positively surprized, that after having 6 courses and 4 compliments from the chef as appetizers, we... More

Whilst staying at the hotel one evening we had the full tasting menu. The service was excellent and the food exceptional. I preferred it to my wife's favourite 3 star Michelin restaurant. I cannot understand why it is not rated higher- an inspector should call soon! We enjoyed it that much we had the fixed price lunch two days later.... More

Booked for lunch during a visit to Amarante - simply wonderful experience. Elegant but unstuffy service, beautiful imaginative food. Set Lunch available which is good value. We went a la carte which does push the price up, but well worth it for the tastes and attention to detail which is evident in every course. Serious cooking with excellent local ingredients,... More

Perfect for the drive from the Duoro Valley to Porto. Or a side trip from Porto. There is a reasonable prix-fix lunch, but the main menu was so enticing we ordered a la carte. Beautiful setting over the river, we chose to eat outside. One of the very best and special meals we had in Portugal. Do not miss!
