    A perfect little place to have a dinner. With very tasty local food and very nice service. Views to the river and the famous bridge Luis I. Definitely we will come back.

    Nice little place outside or the tourist location next to the river. Great service and nice little place for sharing tapas style food with a good glass of wine.

    Absolutely delicious with amazing service! They were so personal and kind. Took the extra mile to chat to us and advise us on places to visit in Porto even without us asking! So lovely

    Lovely food with a very personal touch from the bower/chef (?). Amazing setting. the only downside was that the tables were next to the car passing, but I guess it's part of a city experience.

    A bit out if the way but close to our hotel and an unexpected treat. Lovely warm welcome. Smart and comfortable setting. The tapas menu was explained in detail and lots of help on the wines too. Food was very flavoursome. We tried the mixed cheese and meat plate, olives, potato omelette and breads. Would certainly go again.

    After walking through strong winds and rain, we entered a warm and friendly oasis of warmth and cosiness. Thankfully we had a reservation as it was still busy despite the weather. The waiter who greeted us couldn’t have been more helpful from the moment we entered the restaurant to when we reluctantly left. The food and drink is locally sourced and with local specialities which were well explained. We had different glasses of recommended wines with the variety of dishes we had and a port to match the sweet ..The chickpea and sardine salad was delightful. The local sausage to die for. The selection of eight cheeses were exceptional (we eat a lot of cheese platters and this was definitely one of the best- if not the best - we have had).Plus a very tasty potato omelet. We fished with an equally tasty chocolate cake. Our waiter was also an ex footballer so we had a some great chats particularly as we are a Wolves fans and we have ex Porto manager and players. Al in all, a night to remember. Thank you O Bolina.

    We had researched A Bolina and booked a table on our first night in Porto. There was a very warm welcome from our waiter and the owner and the food we chose was excellent. The menu is not extensive but really good and the wine list has a great choice from inexpensive to more expensive. It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit in a great atmosphere in what used to be the port warehouses.

    Table was waiting for us when we arrived. Waiters very knowledgeable and friendly; helped with suggestions on the menu, also advised an excellent mid-priced wine. Whole experience was so good and the food so tasty that we immediately booked for our next visit the same week !

    What can I say? The food was pleasantly different than anything I'd ever had. The atmosphere was perfect and the service was more than welcoming. I rate it as a must do for any visit to this area.

About the restaurant

A montante da ponte Luis I e com o magnífico Rio Douro ali tão perto, encontra o Bar À Bolina.

O edifício é antigo e revela anos de história, antevendo um interior eclético e que apaixona. As paredes e arcadas de pedra, as madeiras e o bom gosto até nos pequenos detalhes, denunciam um ambiente descontraído, cuidado e onde apetece ir ficando. De enaltecer a simpatia e profissionalismo de quem o receber.

Propício à partilha e ao convívio, este é um espaço que privilegia os petiscos e o vinho. A região de Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro ocupa lugar de destaque com os seus produtos de elevada qualidade, cuja maioria dos produtores são do conhecimento pessoal dos proprietários. Vale mesmo a pena experimentar.

Ideal para um memorável encontro de amigos.
