    Expectations were high as it was a Bourdain recommended spot. Its just okay. More pomp and circumstance than deliciousness. Server was proper but quite formal. Not my cup of tea.

    The experience was a very fun worthwhile experience to pick out your meal from the fresh seafood. We had a crayfish split between 2 of us. I had the vegetable soup for a starter and it was pretty tasteless compared to others i have had. The vegetables that came were cold and also not seasoned well. A bootle of olive oil was put on the table for seasoning. Not what i expect when paying these prices. Maybe we just ordered the wrong thing. Was an enjoyable evening never the less but can’t give great marks for the finer details that i feel should be there.

    This restaurant is bit old school in its look and service but the quality and preparations of the seafood were outstanding. Well worth the trip from Porto. It is expensive but it was worth it.

    I had a wonderful experience here. First time visiting (and first time in Portugal, as well). We were a bit adventurous and tried some food that we never ate before (highly recommend the barnacles), but we were also unversed on how to eat them. Our waiter went above and beyond to help us figure it out. We felt slightly out of place since we are not used to fine dining like this, but we still were made to feel welcome because of the staff’s hospitality. Definitely a meal we will never forget. One thing we were not sure about was whether it is customary to leave a tip in these kinds of restaurants- we did, hopefully we made the right choice. Truly a special experience.

    I started my dinner at 10 PM and restaurant hours stated being open till 1 AM. By 11 PM I was the only customer left and most staff and service employees left.. I’d 3 servers ... the food and fresh were good but didn’t match the very expensive price or service...

    Delicious food, super fresh fish, particularly good seafood risotto, good green wine and a most friendly service. The space inside is very welcoming and the huge fish tanks in the back an unexpected surprise. Definitely coming back.
