Obviously, the lunch in this restaurant is included in the package for bus day-trips, as there was a large and very noisy group of tourists on the terrace. We managed to find place on the other side, which was also crowded. The place looked really popular.
The service was not particularly enthusiastic or friendly. I had an impression, that for the staff it is just a tedious and routine work. This would have been forgotten, if the food would have been at least slightly above the average. Alas, the cesar salad was dry and tasteless, whereas the salade du berger had too much vinegar in it. The dishes were not completely ruined, but, for sure, no delight from the food...

We were a little apprehensive about the restaurant reviews in Porto, many go back to 2015, and seemed to have a theme of "hit and miss" in Porto restaurants.

We spent some time as we walked the streets carefully looking options.

Liked the look of this restaurant, and decided to give it a try.

We were delighted with our meal, you must go for the local fish (Sea Bream or Bass).
The fresh fish combined with local wine was most enjoyable.

The service and attention we received from the staff was very good.

The restaurant filled rather quickly after we arrived around 7.15pm.

As they say, when you find a good restaurant in a place like Porto, you'll probably go back again !! We are thinking that !

My wife and I had lunch at this restuarant yesterday. We had fish after talking to a couple sitting at the table next to us. The woman had just finished her fish and spoke English well enough to convince us the fish was good. Thanks to her we also enjoyed ours.

After looking at the menus of almost all of the restaurants in the area, we finally settled on this one. It's right on the main walk through the village, near the citadel. We were seated right away and the service was great. We took the brocciu cannelloni and the souris d'agneau, with tiramisu for dessert. A great meal!
