I visited this gem of a place for dinner and was not dissipointed. The food was soooo good and they have a huge wine list! Also the staff were really polite and friendly. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone visiting this beautiful city.

I enjoyed this place very much. Staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. Wine and food is also very delicious. And I visited it during happy hour and got another wine for free :)) I highly recommend this place to everyone.

Great atmosphere and great service but food was overpriced and not very impressive. We had ham, cheese plate, shrimp, cod and octopus and most plates were ok, not very tasteful or special. Dinner for two with a lot of food and one sangria 80 euros.

Stopped for lunch here. Nice tapas, not amazing, but good enough. Service was good, very attentive. Made one little mistake with the order and bless them, kept saying sorry, was really not a big deal. Liked the drinks.

This restaurant made our experience in Porto fantastic despite the heavy rain outside. The tapas were fantastic, the wine recommendations were a nice touch to learn about new wines, and the ambiance covered in a wine box theme was cute. Everything we ordered there was...More
