    Lusitano: You will never find it

    by solopes Updated Apr 26, 2014

    This is a restaurant where I think that you will never eat.

    It is located in a residential area, far from all the touristy attractions, and with no particular reason to call you there.

    It happened that I was in the area, needing to eat in 45 minutes, and it was... there.

    No complaints about the food, timing was respected, and the price very cheap.

    However, it will be forgotten. Soon!

    Buri Restaurant: Amazing Sushi and Mediterranic Food

    by Portuguese.Traveler Written Jan 15, 2014

    As a new "sushi lover", I´ve started recently to go to Sushi restaurants in order to try different sushi dishes and to compare the difference between them.

    Recently (last thursday), I had the chance to visit Buri Restaurant, located in Mercado do Bom Sucesso (Bom Sucesso Market - http://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Portugal/Porto/Bom%20Sucesso%20Market), one of the Porto marks.

    With a contemporaneous and luxurious decoration, the owner is someone that really knows what their costumers need, due to his will of welcoming and dealing with most of the costumers.

    The sushi men are extremely kind and they know what they do..!

    No words can describe the good atmosphere that is lived in such a place...

    Favorite Dish: For me, it was a huge surprise the Tuna Sashimi, the Salmon Temaki and the California Uramaki.

    As far as I´ve noticed, they also serve Mediterranean food, such as duck breast with mango and Basmati rice..

  • Tavi - Confeitaria da Foz (Porto): TAVI LOUNGE TERRACE INVITES TO RELAXATION

    by AngelaSumanac Written Apr 5, 2013

    Tavi - Confeitaria da Foz (Porto) recently opened its new lounge terrace, with a panoramic view of the sea and of the spectacular Foz coastline. The architecture and design project sought to make the most of this privileged location by creating a comfortable, harmonious and functional space that can be enjoyed at any time of day, all year round. As for the menu, Tavi now offers a variety of new possibilities, including a snack menu and an innovative "wine by the glass" service.

    With a contemporary and welcoming appearance, the interior decor of the new lounge terrace was inspired by the cozy and familiar environment of a living room: four large sofas covered with colorful pillows, a renovated Nordic-style sideboard, a floor lamp and a variety of natural plants that give life to the space and connect it with the surrounding landscape.

    The architecture of this new space was designed to bring versatility to the structure itself, allowing for different combinations to be made in accordance with weather conditions. The transparent glass curtains can be fully or partly opened, depending on the prevailing winds, and the cover can be opened on sunny days. The interior and exterior gray wood coverings, as well as the sofas, chairs and tables, were designed to withstand all weather conditions.

    This architecture and design project was signed by Moopi Arch+Interiors (Foz, Porto) and Ezzo (Leça da Palmeira).

    Favorite Dish: Visitors can enjoy a wide range of tempting flavors on the lounge terrace or in any of the confectionary's spaces, including an early breakfast, a leisurely or business lunch, an energy-boosting snack at the end of the day or even some pre-dinner tapas. Menus can be adapted to all occasions and now offer a number of new appetizing options.

    My favorite is the exclusive line of yogurt (sweetened, green or wild berry), with a selection of flavorful combinations (chocolate cream with crunchy nuggets, mint flavor, fresh strawberries, cereal, crispy walnut and almond or fresh fruit)... It`s divival!

    In this pastry shop you can also find fruit slushes (strawberry, lemon or berries) or alcohol slushes (caipirinha and Port wines); a tapas menu (among other delicacies: pastry stuffed with rapini greens and alheira – bread and game meat sausage – served with sweet and sour sauce; sardine fillet served with escabeche sauce; fried cornbread with black pudding and red onion jam; shrimp skewer), along with a "wine by the glass" menu (Douro, Minho, Alentejo, Bairrada and Argentina) and a variety of new dishes for more elaborate meals (slivered codfish with roasted olive topping; bread crisps with sausage and codfish quenelle; chestnut risotto with black pork and veal tournedo).

    Cafe Guarany.: Classy old cafe.

    by cachaseiro Written Oct 8, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe Guarany is a classy old cafe dating back from 1933.
    The interior has a native indian theme and the place is very clean and elegant.
    It's located next to a lot of banks and financial offices and that also reflects the clientele these days.
    The cafe both serves as a coffee place aswell as a place where you can go for a light lunch which many does in the early afternoon.
    It's a place to go if you like the classic old european stylish cafe.

    Pedro dos Frangos: Chicken's up at Pedro dos Frangos

    by Martin_S. Written Sep 15, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pedro dos Frangos here in Porto specializes in CHICKEN, spit roasted and tasty. The entire meal is satisfying and filling not to mention very inexpensive and good wine. That little half sized bottle only cost 2 Euro.

    This is definitely a place to visit for a good meal.
    This type of restaurant is called in Portugese a churrasqueira.

    Confeitaria do Bolhao: Confeitaria do Bolhao for EVERYTHING

    by Martin_S. Written Sep 12, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I guess the correct description would be a bakery, but it is also a coffee shop and of course a small window into Portugal. Here you see large groups of locals as well as tourists enjoying everything from a simple cup of coffee to elaborate confections.
    We could not decide on what to try, just too many options and of course they have us procrastinators in mind when they offer those small pastries....so we went with about 10 different types just to try them out, sorry there are only 6-7 in the photo, the others "dissapeared" before I got the camera out.
    I have included their website below.

    Favorite Dish: The last photo here shows the local specialty called Pao de Lao, a type of bread...I will just mention here that the smell is wonderful ^O^

    Almost everything we tried was great.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You may walk a lot when you staying in Porto but it's not easy to find a place to take rest.
    This is not a tradition Portugal but you will love it.
    various dessert and coffee. not that busy.
    Even chairs are not a sofa, you can take rest here. Maybe read a book or some..

    Favorite Dish: Latte!

    Leitaria da Quinta do Paco: Sleek and tasty

    by Roadquill Written Jan 31, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We stumbled upon this place while exploring Porto and had a very nice, reasonably priced lunch. Apparently a lot of other people like the small tables and outside tables as it is listed #2 on Lonely Planet. The down side is that there are many pidgeons in the park area.

    Restaurante Farola da Boa Nova: Good,delicious desserts

    by Turska Written Jul 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It was our first night at Porto,and we had checked every menus at Porto side of Douro riverbank.Many places had only menus like:Grilled steak,Fried chicken etc.. We came to notice,that it was usual at Portugal.You never know what part of chicken you will get,or what sauce you will have-or is there sauce at all.Strange,if you ask us.Sometimes you don´t even know if steak is filet or not.
    This place had sauces on the menu,so we choosed it.It was so windy,that we needed to eat inside(I will never do that at holliday,unless I have to).My husband took filetsteak fried with peppersauce,and I took same one grilled.For some reason grilled came without sauce!(?)..Strange was also,that there was chips no french fries with the steak!!!It felt like cheap kiosk-thing,but seemed to be "in" at Portugal,as we noticed later.
    Steaks were very good!Allthough mine was quite dry without sauce-my husband gave some of his sauce,but there wasn´t so much to share.
    The desserts were so goood!My husband had bisquit-cake,and I had something witch was close to creme brulee,but had less burned sugar,and little lemon-taste.It was so goo,but I didn´t find it anywhere else in Portugal :(

    Favorite Dish: Steaks were very good,but if you fancy a sauce,make sure there is one at your steak.
    Desserts were best while our three weeks trip in Portugal!

    Chez Lapin: On the Riverfront

    by Roadquill Updated Jun 29, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Based upon the recommendation of the front desk clerk we decided to try Chez Lapin. After a walk down to the riverfront, the Rabbit House looks like anyone of the other restaurants on the front. The food was just OK. A little pricey for what we got. But the ambience being on the riverfront with the wonderful view of Gaia and the port houses across the river made up for the average view.

    There is a yummy dish very typical from Porto and the north of Portugal: Francesinha. There are different ways to cook it, but all of them are fantastic. I only say: Try it!, that's all.

    Mare Baixa ?: Cafe in Vila Nova de Gaia

    by suvanki Updated Jan 26, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This cafe was chosen, as we were wanting to eat before we went on our booked Douro River trip, and this was quite near to the jetty. I'm not sure if Mare Baixa is the name of this eatery, or if it was an advertisement - it was on the canopy above the door.

    Tables outside, inside (both upstairs and on the ground floor) it was quite busy, mainly with Portuguese families enjoying a long Sunday lunch. We sat outside watching the river, and the never ending stream of traffic - or "people going for a Sunday walk in their cars" as the girl who sold us our boat trip tickets wryly commented!

    Joy had disappeared to the toilet while we were waiting for our food and returned in a fit of giggles!

    Apparently the staircase was quite rickitty, she'd nearly tripped on the loose carpet, then the toilet door had caused her some problems - I can't remember if it pulled outwards, or was a sliding door, but it was very close to some of the diners, then the loo seat was loose - so she was glad to get back to the table in one piece!

    Favorite Dish: We chose a steak sandwich and a beer each. The beer was fine. The steak was a bit too greasy, but it was adequately filling.

    The menu listed fish and meat dishes of traditional Portuguese cuisine including Bacalhau and sardines. (see picture below)
