The best thing about this place is of course fantastic view of the bridge and the Douro river. Café do Cais is always overcrowded due to that view. You have to wait long time to be served. Food is not bad, but could be better....More

I had a delicious white sangria and garlic prawns at this resto. The view is amazing, and the food and menu a little better than the tourist fair further down the Cais. The service is mediocre -- we had to really track down our waiter...More
