Cook Prices, Friendly owner. Loved it when we asked for chips (fries), saw that they were freshly made from peeled potatoes nit the horrible frozen stuff you get at most places. Ate there three out of four nights of our trip

I've just been to Porto and went here twice and it was great on both occasions. We tried to get into Graham's Port Lodge but it was fully booked plus it is pricey and as we were hungry we ended up here just by chance....More
