Stumpled over this little restaurant by chance and even though the decor doesn't look impressive, the atmosphere of the local guest, the service and the great food makes it all worth a visit.
We went there on a Saturday night and at 21:30 they had live Fado singers and the brought chills down our neck even though we didn't understand a word.
Prices are fair, the food good, the only thing missing was some nice local desserts. They only served factory made ice cream that night.
I rate 5 for the entertainment and a 4 for the food.

We stumbled across this little gem and although a little reluctant, were definitely not disappointed.
The Seabass and Seabream were the best ever. Attentive service, good wines and although not pre possessing, you shouldn't be put off by the approach. Have a go, it won't cost a fortune!

We found this little restaurant by accident, when shopping and needing some lunch. It was full of Portugese diners, which was a good sign. You need to get your head around its location, and the fact that it is dark and dingy at first sight, but the food is extremely good. We went for the 6 Euro set lunch which included soup (a bit watery) and choice of various fish and meat dishes. We both went for fish and it was so fresh and well cooked. Nothing at all special, but really tasty. It came with rice and beans, which husband devoured. Then a slice of creamy cake. But that's not all...the price included a small carafe of wine per person and coffee. What's not to like?

Very unappealing entrance down a narrow alley but step inside for the best bargain of your stay in Porto - a 2-course lunch with good bread and everything freshly cooked, + coffee and half a litre of wine (between 2) for 6 Euros each. Lovely friendly service. What's not to like?!

We were staying at the Grande Hotel Porto on Rua Catarina and this restaurant is about 100 metres up the street. It's easy to miss as the menu board is just inside a small gateway to an alley opposite the Santa Caterina church. We had a fabulous dinner - the portions are enormous, the service excellent, relaxed and attentive and the price ridiculously inexpensive. We were sorry not to have been able to attend the Fado evenings which they have on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Definitely recommended for service, quality and value.
