Description: You´ll find Taberna do Bonjardim a few yards away from the Rivoli theatre. It´s a cosmopolitan tavern that strives to promote a pleasant interaction between Portuguese delicacies and wines from all over the country.In this intimate and cozy atmosphere, wine and food blend happily with the music of Serge Gainsbourg or Miles Davies. Enjoy lunch or local snacks during the day and late suppers in the evening. We also serve delicious brunches on Saturdays(1:00 pm to 4:00 pm).The menu is rich in variety and our main concern is always to use natural and genuine ingredients

“Really lovely”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Food great, ambiance great, location...you'll never find it! Tucked away down a side street, we were recommended this lovely little (about 5/6 tables) restaurant but would never have gone here if not as you can see nothing from the road, it's upstairs and tucked quietly away. I had the fillet, beautiful and my wife the sausage in pastry (sausage plait ). Good bottle of Zimbar at only 11 euros, the whole meal about 40!! Yes yes go there... Not special but very cozy and very reasonable......

“Wonderful - twice in row”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

We came to this restaurant based on a recommendation from our hotel. We like good food and good wine, and we were not disappointed in the least. We were so impressed the first time that we came back.

In a nutshell:
- very good food : while not overly sophisticated, it is very well prepared. Obviously, it's slightly more expensive than the typical restaurant, but well worth it.
- very good wine : we are French, and like wine. They have four different wine categories ( with matching prices ). We tried cat 2 /3, and were very happy.
- excellent service : fast ( but not too fast, we had enough time to reflect upon the rather generous portions), friendly. We even got extra porto at the end of the meal.
- very good music/mood:
Yes, there is background music, but it's good( think downtempo). and coupled with the interior design and decor, it makes for a very relaxing experience.

All in all, we spent five days in porto, this is by far the best place we went to. We live in Paris, have tried lots of restaurants and we heartily recommend it.

“Very nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

Good food, nice decor, reasonable prices for lunch. Menu nice and uncomplicated and staff happy to explain anything we needed explained. We came 10 min before closing and they were happy to serve us. That was well appreciated as we were quite hungry and tired. We were the only people in the restaurant, but didn't feel rushed at all. Creme brûlée with apples was a highlight of a warm afternoon in Porto.

“Crap”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Not a very pleasant experience. Bad service and not very good food. Noisy, lack of choice and a very, very slow service. I will not recommend it and I will never come back.
