I've been to Rei dos Galos de Amarante several times, and the experience is never disappointing. The service is very good, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the food just tastes like homemade Portuguese cuisine. It's definitely worth a visit.

We went there for an anniversary dinner and it was packed with 3 groups. The food is traditional and tasty, definitely a must try and it is not expensive at all.

We found this restaurant quite by accident. Walking through the picturesque streets of Porto (looking for somewhere to eat), we came to an inconspicuous door, behind which we opened a Portuguese tale. We were very satisfied with the service and quality of food. Excellent.

If you want low-key authentic Portuguese food then this is your place. The outside is quite unassuming but take the leap of faith and go inside. We did and were greeted by an old man standing in the foyer. I spoke to him in Portuguese...More
