We had dinner at eLeBe at the night of the soccer world cup final and the restaurant was almost empty. But the food... We ordered roasted baby goat (a Portuguese speciality) and a dish with the unassuming name "beefsteak". The roasted baby goat was fantastic, but the beefsteak was simply mind blowing! I hardly ever ate a steak that tender and rich in flavor. We had a chat with the very friendly chef, and apparently he braised it in some vinho verde. But this is certainly not the whole secret. Whatever the case, the whole experience was excellent, but the steak alone would suffice to declare this restaurant absolutly top-notch!
The prices, by the way, are more than reasonable (i.e. really low for the top quality).

We staid for three nights in Porto and went three times to the eLeBe restaurant. Each time was a great success! Excellent food and good wines, very friendly personnel and at the end no surprises on the ticket. Just go there!

Just a round the corner for Praca do Batalha you find eLeBe. Walk up to the second floor og meet the nice waiters and try one of their steaks. The are enormous, full of taste, and tender. We had a nice dinner, but tell you the truth - the meal was to big, so no dessert on us. We had a very good impression og both there restaurant, the chef, the menu and the prices. Full score from this family of four...

Over the past two weeks, I was in Lisbon, Porto and Barcelona and found the food in all locales fantastic overall. However, few restaurants in particular rose above the extremely high standards I developed after the first week of the trip. eleBe, however, was perhaps the most notable of such rare establishments. The waiter who helped us made me finally understand why his profession is respected in Europe; his help in choosing wine and food suited to our taste and budget was terrific. The location, although slightly outside of the city center, is a virtue in itself as it is sheltered from the inflated prices and disappointing food to be found in more touristed areas by a neighborhood that struck me as lively, Portuguese, and still quite pleasant to walk through. And the food, well, I'd have to be a more accomplished critic or at least a more creative writer to sufficiently describe how good it was. But I can say that you should go here if you want a terrific meal that you'll remember and that you'll swear should've costed about twice what you'll end up paying.
