“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.”Joana
“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.”Licia
“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.”Lidia
“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.”Nelson
