Description: We are in Porto but our soul travels the world. The way we see it, a restaurant is a welcoming house full of nice and pleased people, tables glittering with a bouquet of enchants. Therefore we seek every day for local fresh products, which we cook guided by our passion of world flavours, creating and recreating those memories of other places and other times. Every day we welcome people from distant lands or from just around the corner, with the same enthusiasm for having them at our table, in this house where the team is a melting pot of cultures and languages, making the hosting so natural and giving colour to the ambience. Feel very welcome!

We visited following a recommendation by the concierge at our hotel. It was very busy, with some big groups. Seems to be the place to be seen in Porto. Service was excellent, food was good. Personally I preferred our visits to the little back street cafes for simple traditional food but this is more of a place for a special occasion. Not cheap.

We had a fantastic evening at Tapabento in central Porto. We tried many different tapas which were all exceptional, we couldn't choose a favorite - they were inventive, fresh, flavorful and great value, in fact some of the best food we've had in a long time! Certainly try to get here while in Porto, but ensure you make a reservation in advance!

Our second meal at tapabento and we hope to eat here again before we go home. The owner and staff are truly wonderful and the food us excellent. I took my husband who is a 'goodie' and he loved it.
All the dishes are delicious and well cooked/ presented. The beef, tuna and mussels were amazing.
Didn't have room for dessert but couldn't resist the peanut foam.
Recommend booking as it is deservedly very popular.

Location (perfect): next to Sao Bento station, we were waiting just 5 minutes to get table and a little bit more for food, waiter paying attention for everything ( food quality, advices... ) there is a good relation between price/food quality i recommend the rice and entrecot :-).
