“Lovely Restaurant!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

We've been to this restaurant in Restaurant Week (everything was amazing, especially that cow cheek) and, because of the good experience, we decided to come again! They have a really pretty space, very nice staff and interesting food. Last time we ate here, one of the things we ordered was the "PARTILHAR" ("sharing") menu (which is for 2 people and consists of 8 dishes - 4 starters, 2 main fish dishes (you have to choose 2 out of 3) and 2 main meat dishes (you have to choose 2 out of 4)) and I practily ate the whole thing. Seriously, my mom had to order another dish. XD To end the meal, as a dessert, I had the "Chocolate Variations". YUUUUUUUM.
It isn't the most inexpensive restaurant you'll ever eat at, but you won't regret it!

“Best meal we have had in Portugal”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

We live in Porto, and have tried many restaurants, and this one really sticks out as something special. The best food we have had in Portugal we think, and well worth the price. We have been here several times.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

We had a very nice meal at this restaurant. It was 8pm and we were the only two there - which felt a bit weird - but a few more customers arrived during our stay.

I chose the grilled octopus and my wife had the king prawn and crab risotto. Both dishes were very tasty and cooked with skill - the octopus was the best I've ever had - you must try it! - and the king prawns were massive and the risotto rice was perfect with just a bit of bite.

The waiters were also very good, nice and friendly, we had a bit of a laugh, and they kept our wine glasses full - their recommendation was very nice. They even offered to close the door to their outside eating area if there was any bother with the smoke coming in from their outside smokers area - of which there was no trace.

Dessert was good too - not quite on the same level as the main course but still very nice. The only downside was the atmosphere - it needed more people, and that was a shame as the food is really good. All in all we really enjoyed our visit and would happily go again.

A firm recommendation.

“An evening at B & B”
Reviewed 2 May 2013

Had a delicious robalo, grilled perfectly, and served with quinoa with squid ink and a seafood sauce. Diverse selection of wines by the glass, very welcome in Portugal's ever-growing selection of really interesting and distinctive Portuguese varieties. Located in Boavista, a cool place to go for lunch or dinner, good service.
