Came across this little gem of a restaurant whilst searching for another one recommended by the concierge. In our short 5 day stay in Porto we ate here twice and cannot fault any thing. Service, food, choice of wines were all excellent and the restaurant is good value for money. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to... More

In a small alley no one would guess you could find a restaurant like this. In this very discreet place you can taste the Portuguese modern cuisine. The starters, main courses and mostly the desserts were delicious. I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who can visit it. Since I was the first costumer that night, at the beginning the... More

We were trying to go to a nearby restaurant that was closed and were lucky enough to go to Costume Bistro. Great food. Excellent wine and competent friendly service for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended

Found this little gem on TheFork and were really satisfied- nice, intimate venue, perfectly-cooked steak and super fresh fish. Very good value for money as well. Definitely worth going!

Who would have thought a Monday night at the end of October would see all the restaurants in town f.ully booked. We turned up at the Costume Bistro and they managed to squeeze us in as long as we were finished by the time of the next booking. The service was superb and we didn't feel rushed in any way....

Really enjoyable experience. The lead waiter helped chose everything and steered us well. Gave us complementary glasses of port with dessert. My duck dish was delicious.
