“Best dinner in Porto”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

We were not altogether that impressed with Portugese food but this dinner was our best meal in Porto. The restaurant is sleek and modern set right on the coast. Sunset is spectacular (but a bit blinding!)

“Ridiculously Terrible Service”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

My wife and I stood at the entrance for several minutes before being offered a table, in which time about 5 waiters walked passed us without acknowledging our presence. Once sat, it was perhaps 15 minutes before our order was taken. The food did take some time to arrive, but 2 out of the three dishes we ordered were missing. We asked 2 waiters to follow up. This took another 20 minutes. Then two incorrect dishes were brought in 5 minute intervals.

When we complained yet again - the waiter had the cheek to ask us if we had more time to wait. Not a single one of the staff were in the least bit apologetic.

Given our experience, its hard to sing praises over the views and food.

A custard tart and a coffee on the beach would have been a far more pleasurable experience.

“Great views and nice food”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

The restaurant has 2 menus with modern Portuguese food and Japanese-- an unorthodox mixture that works well in this restaurant with ocean views and very friendly service. Worth considering as an option for a lunch or early dinner in Porto. Reservations are required...

“Great food”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Had a fantastic business lunch here recently. The food was superb, although the quantity was on the small side.Brilliant location with great views of the Atlantic ocean.

“Fantastic views, apalling service!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

We were on a weekend break to Porto and had caught the old tram out to the seaside village of Foz. We had been recommended this restaurant by the owner of our accommodation. The views are absolutely fantastic, we sat in the outside area and you truly are on top of the beach looking out to the crashing Atlantic beyond. Unfortunately the service was the worst I have experienced in a very long time. It took nearly 15mins to take our order, the table did not get cleaned, we received two incorrect dishes, when the correct dish did come from the kitchen it did the rounds of tgree other tables before reaching us and then they did not clear the table. I had to ask three times for a second drink. So it was dreadful. Would I go back? No. But I would still recommend for the views, environment and quality of food.
