pricey (be prepared to pay 10 euros for one small glass of 10 years tawny port wine) but very good. the view is great. the service is perfect.
It is a nicely appointed restaurant but the food was only okay, even a little expensive. We had two servers waiting our table and both were very friendly and professional. As a matter of fact, they were the only two working the night we were there and they served all the tables in the room together; great teamwork. I had... More
We had a very nice dinner in this restaurant when we visited Porto in July of this year. The service was absolutely impeccable - friendly, attentive and very professional. Food was excellent, and the size of the portions was exactly right - meaning not too big. The waiter recommended a 10 year old port from Niepoort between the main course... More
We took lunch here one day in the sun. But it proved to be a very noisy location with the traffic of Porto just next to it. The food was amazing however and could only be strongly recommended. The service is great and friendly, but a little slow.
I cannot comment on the evening menus as my girlfriend and I only sampled their lunch offering which was amazing. It must first be stated that this is perhaps one of the most beautiful restaurants I have ever dined in. It may be slightly too ostentatious and 'bling' for some, but something about the tasteful décor of cream walls, silverware... More

Risotto; Rice undercooked, not creamy, Lamb; Tough as an old boot. Dessert;... More

I dined in this hotel restaurant of the Intercontinental. Extraordinary fresh and tasty oysters from Foz do Arelho, a decent risotto with clams and grouper and Portuguese cheese, coming with a nice open dry wine from the Douro. However, the quantities were - for Portuguese kitchen - really very small, without any of all those delicious small finger food served... More

Late night traveling - staying at this wonderful hotel -decided to stop in for a quick bite. Ordered onion soup -very tasty, Lobster/shrimp bisque- very strong shrimp taste with one tiny piece of lobster. We also ordered salads that were lacking a good dressing and greens. Very disappointed in the dinner and would not return or recommend.The restaurant needs to... More
