I had dinner in this restaurant, and it was a wonderful experience. The staff is professional, but also very nice and pleasant. The food is very good, and the location as well. Totally recommend!

Just wanted to thank the staff at Ribeira Square both for making some amazing food and also for making our daughters birthday very special. They went above and beyond to make sure we had a fantastic evening, and we are very grateful. The food was...wonderful, and the chef even came out to sing a birthday song. They also have great knowledge and support for gluten free issues! Thanks again, we will be back next time we make it to Porto!More

Actually a big thanks to trip advisor - we would not have found this. Lots of outdoor seating, but a small and homey dining room upstairs. Good food, friendly folks, good advice on food and wine and an education on Port. We went back a...second night. It felt like a special find.More

Must do restaurant just 2 storefronts up from main square! Avoid the corner tourist traps and stop at this absolute GEM! The service was personalized, friendly and just right. Everything we tried was absolutely delicious. We made the mistake of eating at the touristy spots...down the hill and are soooooo glad we decided to try this spot today. Best lunch in our time in Porto. Ice cold beer, delish sangria, Portugese cheese bread, duck confit, and an egg and potato dish were all outstanding.More

Great authentic food! The choice was amazing, the fish super fresh, the wine very good, the cakes homemade and the coffee Italian! Also, 5 stars for the good service.

Me and my family (5 of us) attended this restaurant for dinner. It was a great location, very close to the river and gave us a great view. The staff was incredibly friendly, offering everyone blankets and bread. The food was incredible. We ordered many...dishes, with the tropical salad and the octopus carpaccio being among the favorites. We will definitely return if possible!More

We had read that if a person wants genuinely good Portuguese food near the river, this is your restaurant. What a true statement! Jeao Garcia was our server who spoke excellent English and was very personable. My husband’s bacalhau gratin was a traditional dish and...he thoroughly enjoyed the unique meal. My bacalhau was served with potatoes, onions on a bed of spinach. It was a large piece of fish and could easily be shared. We opted to share the dream cake which our server said the chef is keeping that recipe a secret. The chocolate meringue/mousse cake simply melted in our mouth. Very reasonably priced and would highly recommend.More

We didn’t come hungry but we left overwhelmed! Resistance is futile! One of the best fish soups served, made with passion as they said. So good that i wanted more and more. Ruby Porto wine and Tawny were brought for tasting and one was gifted....We took those 3 desserts as a last will with the wine and there was a party of tastes! I strongly recommend cheese cake, lemon pie and that secret-recipe dream cake! Chapeau!More
