“Very good Tapas bar in central Porto”
Reviewed 10 May 2013

This tapas bar was close to our hotel (Infant Sagres) and close to the main square.
It was very modern, friendly. The waiter spoke good English.
Very good tapas selection. We had 5 between 2 people.
The waiter was very knowlegable about the wine which was excellent.
I would return - in fact my husband has been there twice before this visit.
Also excellent for vegetarians.

“Great restaurant and tapas bar”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

The octopus with acorda was superb! Also tried a range of tapas such as rabbit and a fava bean salad. Wine of the week was 3.5 Euros a glass and very good too.
Very helpful owner. The restaurant is located close to the Infante de Sagres hotel and the Praca da Liberdade.

“A good place for a light lunch”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

It is very easy to eat far too much in Oporto - so we were delighted to find this chic little place offering a selection of tapas dishes.
More than a cafe but not quite a restaurant it is smartly furnished and seemed to be attracting a mixture of local business people as well as tourists such as ourselves.
Four little dishes of local tapas were excellent followed by a plate of ham and some local wine - perfect when we knew a large dinner faced us later.
