Nice terrace to have some drinks. The price is fair for all drinks, especially gin tonics. The tea looks quite nice as well.

The drinks were great, especially the porto tonico that we fell in love with. The decor is really nice, the music selection was nice every time we went, and the bartenders were really welcoming...

Lovely refreshing drink with great fun and lemon drizzle cake after a hard day treading the streets of Porto. Great place with great gin, great music and good service. Not far from the lello book shop and metro

I like to drink, and I like to feel comfortable when I'm in a bar environment. As I've worked in the cocktail&bar industry for many many years I was happy to find a place which fit the atmosphere, ethos and ideology of great bar. The staff here were fantastic with permanent smiles and friendly banter, and above all good drinks,... More

We went there on Saturday afternoon and had the best time ever! We started with a pot of tea to get warm because it was raining and after we saw the great selection of alcohol in the place we ordered mojito and some local port and we really enjoyed it. The staff was great, very welcoming and warm and they... More

We visited on a weekday evening , it was quiet. I am informed that the porto tonico was excellent. It's a really nice laid back cosy place.
