Astória Restaurant

Astória restaurant is located in the emblematic and historic Palácio das Cardosas, in the heart of the city of Porto. The heritage of the Palace is reflected in the noble features and refined aesthetics, complemented by a modern and comfortable decoration, which invites you to enter. Generous windows to the exterior open the Astoria to the city, sharing all its charm, culture and liveliness.



To welcome the good weather, Astória inaugurated the outer space and designed a special menu for the terrace. With an All Day Dining concept – from 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. – and overlooking the imposing Praça da Liberdade, the restaurant has meal options (or snacks) at any time of the day.


Modern portuguese cuisine at Astória’s table

The menu signed by Chef Francisco Pico has just (literally) come out of the oven. The menu reinvents Portuguese flavors and combines three essential characteristics: traditional, seasonal and classic.

There is also a group menu, inspired by the food to share gastronomic trend.

The gastronomic journey begins, of course, with the starters, where it is possible to taste, for example, Traditional broad beans & chorizo, sous vide egg yolk, in house smoked duck breast or In-house Cured Mackerel, fresh garden herbs, radish, saffron emulsion.


“What a fantastic meal! The flavors very well achieved, beautiful and caring presentations. The quiet environment ideal for romantic dinners. Very attentive and professional staff. The visit was under the restaurantweek so it was a prefect choice for a very high quality dinner for a super friendly price.”


“Located in the heart of Porto, in the Intercontinental Hotel, it has a classic and exquisite atmosphere. Wonderful service !!!! The entrance of clams, proposed by the Maître, was simply superb. Robalo's filet on the grill with perfect sautéed vegetables. Wine that harmonized deliciously. Great value for money.”


“Excellent restaurant. Beautiful facilities, right in the heart of Porto, and overlooking the main square of Invicta. Exceptional service, with unique and extremely professional staff. Loved the whole meal, having to highlight the lobster bisque which was truly delicious.”


“Food is delicious with Portuguese and International dishes beautifully presented. We both had “Bife Lombo” which was excellent. The dessert trolley is also fun. As many wines are local trust the staff for recommendations. The setting is also superb as you can watch the world go by whether inside or sitting on the outside terrace.”
