“Ok, but nothing special”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Ok, good tapas-y plates for lunch, don't really understand how it's the 14th best restaurant in Porto, but it's good but there's not a very long menu and really it's just nothing special.

“Fresh Food and Cerveja Artesanal”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

A nice traditional deli cum cafe cum bar a 5 mins walk downhill from Sao Bento Railway Station. It has a really chilled out feel and the staff were really friendly. We arrived at about 1900 and managed to get One of the Five tables on the inside. All food is freshly prepared and was really good. We tried local meats cheeses and bread as well as olives ,toasted almonds and a mixed salad. For desert we had the delicious lemon pie. Another interesting fact about this place is that they sell local beers from a small independent brewery called Sovina. One beer was on draught with another Four in bottles and they were all in good condition.

“Favorite spot in Porto”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

While wondering through streets of Porto we came across this delicatessen spot, cozy interior and very kind staff. Delicious sandwiches, authentic Portuguese cheese, olives and fantastic bread. I could not stop praising the bread and when we were living very kind waitress gave us a loaf of home made bread and she didn't want to charge it!!
Absolutely worth visiting.

“Who Stole My Cheese?”
Reviewed 21 May 2013 via mobile

Four Euros or so gets you three small pieces of cheese and a few crackers. The melted cheese with honey and oregano was a bit bigger .same price... four fifty. Nothing special. Good cheeses. But seriously ungenerous.

“Relaxing Spot with Great Food”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

Nice spot for a light lunch or breakfast, coffee or a glass of local wine. Service is efficient and friendly, and the atmosphere is bright and comfortable. The menu includes a nice selection of salads and sandwiches, as well as pastries. The ham and cheese sandwich was made with top quality ingredients, simple and delicious. The rose wine was a perfect match for a relaxing lunch in Porto.
