My husband and I went to Aurora our first night in Porto - it was an amazing dining experience!

The food and wine were all delicious, and the staff are so kind and very helpful with recommendations.

We definitely recommend it - great local flare, affordable prices, and 5 star quality food!

After reading the reviews decided to try this place out on our first night in Porto. Situated just behind our hotel, we were blown away by the service and the food. Really friendly staff and their recommendations were spot on. Definitely going back before we leave. 5 stars.

This restaurant apparently opened just very recently. It is a very nice, welcoming, family-run place and the guy in the kitchen must be an absolute genious. We had pork cheeks, which was our second choice (the first being sold out), and the food was definitely first class. The service, however, does not live up to this level. When we arrived, the restaurant was pretty full and it took very long until we could even order. We sat there for 45 min until water was served... but the personnel is very friendly and amicable.
Nevertheless, you should definitely come here for the excellent food - I'm sure the service will improve, as the place is new and people just building up their experience. Bring some patience and you will enjoy an unforgettable dinner.

We had diner at this restaurant and it was a great surprise. It was real Portuguese food done with a great presentation. The dishes were well served and abundant. The service was very friendly. The lady had a very nice disposition. She was helpful and a great host. The restaurant was tastefully decorated. It is nice to be in a family restaurant were the put a lot of care in what they do. I would definitely go back if I was in Porto again.

My wife and I had a wonderful night at this charming restaurant. The food was nothing short of superb. The staff were charming. The wine was excellent and went very well with the meals. I have been travelling for almost 6 months through Germany, Southern France and Northern Spain. The meal I had here stands out as the best of the trip and by a long way.
