Went with three friends and had a very good Carne de porco à Alentejana. Green wine was Alvarinho (the best or nothing). Starters were great - Alheira à brás. Top service, well cooked, top quality, quickly served, clean apparel (very important for me at least). I eaten soup and it was good also. Moderate price for the overall experience.

The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere. Decoration is nice. The prices were within the actual prices of a medium high restaurant. Meals between 11,50 and 16,50 per person. I found them a little bit to high for the taste of the food. We were 3 persons and tasted all the 3 plates. Even though it was well presented it did... More

At the Nova Tendinha you don´t have a menu with a large number of options because the option was to focus on food quality and for sure the goal is achieved. The food is delicious and the service friendly and efficent. Very good food in a cosy and pleasent space. A place I recommend to my family and best friends!

I went 2 times and must say it is a very pleasant place. The new owner is young and attentive, she managed to bring a breath of air and a different approach to the traditional Portuguese cuisine. The decoration is simple but elegant. The menu is small but with a good enough selection, presentation of the plates was carefully though... More

The Nova Tendinha is a unique restaurant in Leça da Palmeira (Porto), which was reborn in the hands of Matilde to become one of the best secrets of Porto, one of those that you only tell to your best friends!
