I had one of set menus, for €18 I had more food and alcohol that I could handle. Plus excellent service. It's next to the road but has good view of Porto. I'd recommend it.

Good food. We ordered a little bit of everything and everything was great. The only thing was we waited about half an hour for a single desert after the mains. Apart from that all food. Friendly staff.

Lovely little cafe on the Doro River serving traditional Portuguese food. Had a simple lunch of Pan fried sardines which where sensational worth a try.
