The start of the night we just passed this restaurant and looked at the menu. We liked a lot what we saw on there. We gave it a try, I had sea bass my partner had monkfish rice. And we were both very impressed, the wine we had with was also lovely. Even the owner shook our hand. Staff were very polite and helpful in the choice of wine.

I think it was the best fish I have ever had. Very nice place and friendly service too. Price is also reasonable.

Aso far as the title suggests this was definitely our best meal in Porto so far as food however we did feel we were significantly overchaged.
One very small glass of beer (from the barrel) 25cl was 3euros. My wife drinks white wine, I drink red. We asked if they had half bottles of wine but No!, nor did they serve wine by the carafe. So, foolishly not asking the price we had two glasses of white and two glasses of red (not large). we were a little shocked to find that we had been charged 6 euros each glass, - it was not superior wine! We were so discomfited by the price of the drinks that we did not notice that we had been charged two euros extra on each main course than was shown on the menu.

Obrigado pela sua avaliação e classificação.
Não compreendemos a sua indignação sobre o facto de não utilizarmos a garrafa de vinho pequena de 0.35 dl. Só utilizamos garrafas de marca nosso mercado, 0.75 dl. em alternativa temos vinho a copo e o preço por copo depende da marca e região do vinho.
quando se faz a escolha na carta devem ter em atenção dos preços praticado em cada casa ou então fazendo a reclamação daquilo que não acham bem para podermos rectificar se houver algum engano. o que não foi o caso não existe alguma reclamação.
ainda há mais uma outra observação, cada um, pediu 2 copos de branco e o outro 2 copos de tinto. que no nosso Restaurante só pode ser servido a copo.
devem reclamar quando tiverem razão chamar atenção daquilo que estaria até por engano para ser reparado.
Mesmo assim agradecemos alguma simpatia que tiveram com os nossos Serviços.
Abraço.

You must visit this family run restaurant so close to the Ribeira in Porto, it feels like you have been invited over for dinner by a loving Portugese family. We had the pleasure of chatting with Claudio the young Owner, as well as his sister Chef Claudia, and the Family Patriarch Claudio as well. Please try the chicken and rice, it's the Moms recipe and it is unforgettable. Everyone was very kind to our children, and took the time to talk with us. We will most definitely be back again!
