When a restaurant is busy with locals, it has something going for it. The food was great superb clams in an olive oil lemon garlic sauce and then Turbot and seasonal vegetables washed down with a port and tonic then a very nice white wine. The decor is basic but does not deter the great food.

A Margem is a great place for fresh fish. There 2 dinning rooms both have a photo perfect view over the douro river. Phone reservation is highly recommended specially for Friday and Saturday dinners. The staff is very professional and nice. Enjoy the ambiance, the food and of course your company...

This place checks almost all the boxes....great view, excellent food, professional service, very reasonable prices. What more can one want. If you are a local, this is an elegant local restaurant. If you are a tourist, the visit to Afurada is a refreshing change from the sameness in Porto. The town is an old fishing village and the housing very... More

Looked like a very nice restaurant but seafood was marginal at best. Fish came with skin and bones, you had to work to get a small bite
