The food is excelente, very attentive service. I recommend the duck rice croquettes and the fries. The desserts are outstanding. The roof top is very cozy, fantastic drinks and view. For the main restaurant, make a reservation, it's always full and has limited seats.

We visited this restaurant due to great reviews and they have a rooftop terrace. We were not disappointed!! First off, the restaurant is part-food, part-shopping. We settled into our table on the second floor and were quickly greeted by Humberto, a wonderful waiter from Porto....More
