“Is there a rating under Terrible ??”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 November 2012

"Does this restaurant have the following? Reservations accepted?" Yes it does, however I certainly do not recommend it.
We booked a dinner for a b-day party one week before the date. We were asked to confirm the number of people attending the day before, which we did but some people couldn't come on the day of the dinner. We were first surprised by a very quiet restaurant with most of the lights turned off and nearly no customers on a Friday night. We were then served a different menu from the one we had settled on the time of the reservation which was actually much worse than the one we chose and with ridiculously cold red wine on the side. In the end, we were presented with a bill with the initial number of people booked without any warning or with the corresponding food brought to the table whatsoever. When confronting the manager, we were told that we had to pay for the people not attending as written in the website of the restaurant. After paying twice of what that dinner was worth, we left the restaurant with a very bad taste in our mouths (literally and metaphorically).

“Awesome, 5 stars cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I went to this Restaurant with my girlfriend, and it was great surprise, best meal I have had in a Restaurant in a long time! The meal was very very tasty, very well cooked and presented, the wine (we drank a glass of wine each) was a great match to the meal itself. The desert was also very good.

I did not find a single flaw, and I will be going there again when I go to Porto again, no doubt about it!

“Positively surprised at lunchtime”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2011

Although initially unimpressed, things changed when the food arrived. We ordered "Coxinhas de borrego confitado com ervas aromáticas e arroz de açafrão" - lamb (mutton?) shank confit with saffron rice.

Outstanding.
