This interesting little taverna was in the side street we were staying in and proved to be a great find ... and it's been found by other and is pretty popular. The food is good if straight forward, with decent sized portions and proves to be excellent value. It won't be the most amazing meal you've ever had but you won't be disappointed

We were told by our concierge that Porto food is heavy food - and this place proved it. My wife had pork with rice and chips(!) and I had salt cod with chips and bread. Portions were overpowering - neither of us finished.
Dessert however was great and service good.
Credit cards not accepted - just as well we had cash!

The D'avo is situated in an old rustic building at the top end of the Ribeira,food dishes are excellent home cooked set in a small tavern area for around 30 people.The steak and cod meals were both great value there is a decent wine menu all at reasonable prices plus the staff are very friendly making the D'avo an excellent choice for a meal.

We stepped by here for lunch: the staff was very kind, the food very good.
We had hamburger and pork with potatoes and with 2 glasses of porto
Definitely worth it!

Very handy if you have just visited the photographic exhibition in the old gaol.
Small and tables are close together, but the food was tasty and the service efficient.
Pleasantly busy even for a mid week lunch in mid October
