Our experience at lunch here is very good, we taste some tapas that were all good, specially Tuna tataki, cod fish and Polvo a feira. The service is curated but need a little more experience, and wine is good and served at optimal temperature.

If you are looking for a lovely place and tapas which are a little more special you should definitely go there. The food is brilliant. Different tastes and combinations. The prices are a little above Porto standards but really fair.

The restaurant is a hidden gem nearby the riverside. The waiters normally advise you on the fresh food available to maximize your food experience. We took some starters and a main. Portions are small but tasty and well presented.

Hello Lisa, Reservations are always recommended. While some people might be allocated a table due to a cancelation it is more often that I have to, sadly, turn people away.
