We arrived in Porto on a busy Friday evening when a lot of restaurants were booked up, so we were slightly apprehensive about going into this one, which was relatively quiet. But we needn't have worried because it is a pleasant place with good food and very good service. I had what the menu described as "sea bass with vegatables and sweet potatoes." It turned out to be a whole sea bass beautifully cooked in paper with greens and stuffed with a vegetable mixture, and it was very good. My partner had pork cheeks with potatoes, which was also good. The house wine was very good too. My only niggle was the relatively high cover charge (over 7 euros) for the starting nibbles and bread (which I can't eat so wouldn't have asked for.)

Very nice place. Staff friendly. We had the menu for 7.50€. "Pataniscas" and "Jardineira" were tasty.
We will be back for sure.

The staff either were new or just couldn't keep orders straight. She'd forget to bring things and forget what she had already told us. We ordered 2 of the pork chop lunches. She returned to say there was only enough for 1 order. So we also asked for the soup. Only got 1 soup. But by the time we got the meal we were just tired of all the waiting. The pick chop was dry and although the serving of beans was generous the rice was maybe half of a tablespoon. Thankfully with drinks it was at least cheap. The place itself looks cool with all the different shabby chic decor.

Lamentamos que tenham vindo já relativamente tarde para almoçar...É que os pratos do dia, com tudo incluído (menos as bebidas) a 7.50€, esgotam muito facilmente!!! Esse foi o caso... Também é verdade, e pedimos desculpa por isso, a menina que temos nas mesas é aprendiz (está identificada como tal) e daí ainda não ter o fairplay para situações do género...imagino que nem tenha sugerido o serviço à lista que não esgota assim tão facilmente!
Esperamos poder voltar a servi-los numa outra oportunidade para terem uma ideia mais realista deste restaurante.... Conceição Brás

I went to Dona Porto with a group of friends and we had an amazing meal. The staff was amazing, very knowledgeable of the food and all ingredients.
My meal was very tasty, and all my friends complimented the food. I just think the portion could be a bit bigger but beside that was very good. I'll be back for sure!
