    Veal risotto and steak, both very very delicious! I spend €80 on a 2 person dinner; mains and desserts, bottle of wine and port to finish. Great service, really top notch!

    We arrived fairly early and the place was full, unfortunately we had not booked. But they found space round the bar. Fantastic food and highly recommended the restaurant!

    Codfish nuggets, Veal Risotto & Scallops risotto with a great Green Wine! The service was good! Make a reservation before going there! They accept American Express!

    Best experience in Porto. The tuna and salmon as apprtizers were mind blowing. Also the beef risotto and hazelnut! Aagghhh so good. I also loved the service guy, he was funny and very helpful!

    A charged couvert (bread, black olive oils, truffle butter and tomato sauce) that worth the try. I’ve ordered Veal Risotto and couldn’t be any happier - such magnificent recipe that was brought to me!

    Food is ok! Service is polite and kind! But defenetly not one of the best restaurants in town! Salada de fruta com Espuma de Mojito is a MUST!!!

    The best place to have dinner in Porto ! The lemon/ basil/ gin cocktail was wonderful as the tapas ! I highly recommend the fried cod, the tuna and the eggs !

    Enjoyed the scallops and poultry livers, great starters. Would skip the main and go with three starters next. The hazelnut desert had good flavors, but lacked any texture. Amazing service.

    Probably the best restaurant in Porto. And affordable too..! Be sure to try the cod with exploding olives! Wait... what..? Yes, exploding olives. Fruit salad with mojito foam is also extraordinary!

    This whole experiences was incredible. The truffle butter to start was a simple highlight for me. We were also blown away by the tempura green beans and the confit tuna. The service was exceptional.

    Amazing! Service and food! Definitely try: scallops with avocado mousse (will blow your mind) and the cod. Steak is ok, nothing special, but be sure to save some space for the Hazelnut!

    we were first turned off by the high-ish prices (starters 7-10e, mains 17-20e), but the quality of everything made it very worthwhile. great wine and food as well as pro service :)

    This place is definitely the heaven in Porto. Recommend trying risotto with grilled scallops. Everything else is amazing as well.

    The bread service. Very good. The tomato sauce I loved. Partner said the olives were spectacular. (I the olives, but I get people like them.)

    Superb modern Portuguese food with an added touch of flavor and dishes with an international twist. The restaurant bares the name of its well-known Portuguese chef Jose Avillez.

    The octopus was amazing, as was the Brazilian seafood stew...the hazelnut dessert, maybe not life changing as they claim, but quite close...

    The green beans and the starter prawns... they were both delicious. Although as you can see: in minimum amounts. Starters they are.

    Great place to eat. Locals eat here too so that is a good sign. They have several restaurants throughout Portugal. Food is traditional yet exciting.

    Excellent food and a nice restaurant. Veal risotto very good. Had to remind staff several times of drinks and side orders that hadn’t been completed.

    The roasted octopus was very good. It’s bigger. This is just half a plate (I split it with my partner).

    A bit easier to get into than the one in Lisbon, but just as good! Do not miss the professor's eggs and the hazelnut cubed.

    The cod is over cooked & tasteless. The grilled octopus is pretty good though. Forget about the hazelnut dessert, it’s too sweet. However the cocktail MX ginger is excellent, credit to the bartender!

    You go in expecting to be blown away and while it’s very good, it’s not impressive. Very far from the Michelin levels that the place aspires to. Overall a little disappointing 8.9/10.

    overrated and overpriced! The prawn appetiser was warm, the scallop appetiser was such a small portion, i got a warm beef steak for my main course and the best dishes of the night is the octopus.
