We booked this restaurant by email and received a speedy response. It's very central - about 10 minutes walk from Praca Liberdade, with a pleasant environment and tables reasonably well spaced. Our waiter spoke good English and when we sought his advice on wine he chose one for us which was a very good value one. The portions were generous - even for our healthy appetites. The cover charge of 1.60eu included a tray with several different types of bread, butter and a dish of olives. We started with an appetiser of fruits and cheese in puff pastry which was quite unusual. We enjoyed it but it was quite sweet and some might consider it more suitable as a dessert. For our main course we had cod with the restaurant's secret sauce. Very good - but watch out for the bones. We were so full we could only manage to share a dessert but that, too, was delicious. Our bill including a bottle of wine came to less than 60eu - amazing value.

My fiance and I had a wonderful dinner here. The food/wine were amazing (we had the lamb entree and the bacon wrapped ox steak) and the prices were more than fair. You won't go hungry here. The service was excellent as well. I highly recommend this place.

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...
