Lovely place to chill, relax and being with friends. It's so close to the city yet so linked with the nature. I definitely recommend it.

Had a wonderful ceviche, oysters and sea bass dinner. Veal verde wine supposedly the only green wine in existence and only sold in Portugal. Restaurant on the beach. Very nice place

Ate here twice whilst we were in Porto and I really enjoyed both my meals. Vegetarian choices were interesting and varied & nice to have a few options. Good service and great location. Food was good value for money so would definitely return.
