Com mais de 70 anos de existência, o restaurante Mário Luso, foi fundado pelo Sr. Mário Moreira dos Santos, conhecido por Mário Luso, e nos dias de hoje ainda se mantém na mesma família. O restaurante tornou-se uma referência no Porto devido às tripas à moda do Porto e do bacalhau à Gomes de Sá. O restaurante conta com duas salas muito amplas e acolhedoras, com um lado mais rústico e ao mesmo, um ambiente acolhedor com as flores naturais.

Começou pelas mãos do Sr. Mário, e continua nos dias de hoje com a filha D.ª Arménia, e pelos netos Arménia e Mário. A tradição foi mantida: às quartas feiras, o dia da feira semanal, são servidas as famosas tripas à moda do Porto e o bacalhau à Gomes de Sá. A cozinha é inspirada nos pratos típicos portugueses, que dão aquele conforto de “comida caseira” em doses muito generosas.

INSIDER tip

Não deixe de experimentar o arroz de tamboril com gambas de Moçambique ou os secretos de porco preto acompanhados de arroz de tomate e coentros. Termine com o doce de claras com ovos-moles, uma das sobremesas mais apreciadas.

    Quite the unique place. If feels aged like a great wine. The waiters have great knowledge and can recommend special dishes. Everyone should try the Plumas de porco preto, it is special.

    Great food in a very cozy restaurant. The waiters were very pleasant, but the wait was a bit too long. Apart from that, definitely worth the visit!

    Exceptional service, great decoration. A true high quality Portuguese restaurant (except for quantities, which were small, for the price). The food could have wow-ed me a bit more, but still delicious. The wine prices are terrible, for something for which the restaurant provides absolutely no added value. For me the "true" restaurant sells wines at market prices (or close) and charge a "cork fee".

    Great night out. Accommodated us at short notice and made us most welcome. Service was great, despite the language barrier (our fault, not theirs), and the food was excellent. We will be back if we are ever travelling this way again.

    We were staying in Porto for a few days and thought we would try this Resturant. It was around a 15 minutes journey from Porto. It did state on the information that it was a traditional Portuguese Resturant with little English spoken. Upon arrival we received a very good welcome. We were given a choice of tables for a party of 6 that had been reserved for us. We were given at first Portuguese menus and were given lots of assistance by our Portuguese waitress to assist with translation which she did very well. They did bring out some English menus but they were not needed. We opted for then braised beef cheeks and the steak For our party which were excellent. They have a great choice of deserts and each was superb. We opted for the house red and house white wine for the table which were excellent. Service by our waitress / waiter and I think the owner or manager was very professional, warm and friendly. We were a little unsure if the trip out off Porto was worth it, but it most definitely was. I highly recommend this Resturant for its food, wine and customer service. Many thanks for looking after us during our meal. One last note they have a quality range of beers also !

About the restaurant

A simplicidade da boa comida, aliada à arte de bem receber Mesmo nos dias frios o ambiente é acolhedor, não fosse a arte de bem receber um dos

predicados desta casa.

Já com 70 anos de história e sempre na mesma família, oferece uma cozinha tradicional portuguesa. O sorriso e a simpatia de quem lá trabalha granjeou-lhe boa reputação, sendo pratos como o cozido a portuguesa ou as tripas à moda do Porto um delicioso cartão de visita.
