Wonderfully cosy restaurant with beautiful decor. Food was special and my steak was like butter. Wine excellent and very pleasant service. A must visit when in Porto.

Booked here for Valentine's Day meal. Not disappointed. The food was excellent, wine good and reasonably priced. The set menu worked well. Service was excellent. Probably go back on our last night in town. Did do and the day to day menu was also excellent.

Lovely homely ambiance with attentive staff. The fish was exceptional scallops followed by seam bass on black rice, so fresh and modern cuisine I loved everything about this restaurant, I wish I was a local.

We were beautifully taken care of in this lovely room. Dinner was delicious, booze great, staff fabulous. Had the mixed desert option, which was only OK - the one slight disappointment - so I'd ask for a pudding recommendation!

The other reviews are spot on - this is a small place tucked away that doesn't look like much from the nondescript front door, but the food is immaculate. Wonderful fresh flavours, imaginatively presented. Great service, nice inexpensive wine list - really had a great meal there.

If you want to have an all inclusive Porto experience this is where to go. A upper floor dinning space with tradicional 20th Century Porto Setup, cosy and intimate. The food are tradicional Portuguese dishes with a touch of contemporary fusion and easy for taste. Location is great in the historic downtown area very close to the trademark street Nightlife...

We have spent the new year's eve dinner at Camafeu, with a special menu for the event. Every dish was excellent, although not specifically Portuguese (we had ravioli filled with duck, and beef). The setting is very similar to a house.

Description
On the first floor of a historical site in Porto's downtown, recently opened a small quiet restaurant, called Camafeu. Go back to the times where you had a meal at your grandparent's place, where the decor was romantic but eclectic and where you can indulge yourself on mouth-watering but not-pretentious food.At dinner time, you are invited to stay for a late drink and enjoy, through the big windows, the scenery of the square bellow (Praca Carlos Alberto, named after our late King). We invite you to try the tender Sirloin steak or the Duck with figg jam, or the Prawn porridge among other fabulous appetizers and main-courses. Everybody will love our home-made desserts. Don't forget to ask for the famous Portuguese wine from the Douro region, either it's Port, White or Red.
