Restaurant
“My dad found this place, and we never miss a chance to go there! It is a true local, forget about getting a menu, the mother decides with her twin daughter what will be done on the day based on their fresh and local products. The mother is in the kitchen, you can sometimes when she is taking care of the BBQ in the courtyard otherwise her 2 twin daughters take care of all ... An advise for this place be there at 12 o’clock sharp, even 11h55 it gets full by locals very quickly... No booking”

Mexican Restaurant

“A mexican restaurant in the heart of downtown Porto. It is not your typical mexican restaurant, though, at Frida they take what you know about mexican food and arrange it in a way that feels new yet comforting. Prices are a bit steep but it is well worth it.”

Restaurant
“There’s one rule at the Rei dos Galos de Amarante: start your meal with the fish soup, and end it with Seia whey cheese and pumpkin jam. In between, choose whatever you want. They have salted white sea bream and sea bass, game rabbit, roast kid goat and even cuttlefish or octopus bean stew. A classic tripe stew is only served on weekends and must be ordered in advance. So worth it, mind you. Rua das Taipas, 121 Vitória Porto 4050-600 Price: Up to €20”
