Very cosy restaurant located on the riverfront, with a beautiful view of service Porto. The staff was very friendly, welcoming and professional. For our mains we had the octopus and tuna steak, both of which we highly recommend. For desert we tried the lime crumble, the pear cooked in Port wine and a cheese pie with Port wine ice cream - all of them were lovely.
I would higly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a quality meal. Definitely worth the price tag.

I was with highs expectations but at the end I felt disappointed! Don’t know if it was because I used the promo porto restaurant week but I was expecting the waiters to tell me about the food and it was about. But they were nice and the restaurant it’s beautiful.. but the mood was strange.

Loved everything about our luch at The George! Beautiful views, cosy ambience, delicious food and fantastic service. We had the 30 % off deal so the meal had a very good value for money. Even without the discount the prices are very correct and not explensive at all. We will return for sure.

Nice food, particularly the ‘arròs caldós’ with fish. Very friendly people, they gave us one of the top tables of the restaurant and respected the discount.

First floor venue with nice view across River Douro to Porto. All 5 members of my family enjoyed their main course. Certainly a lot better than the fare on offer in the many waterfront establishments nearby.

Extremely cozy space also also due to the friendliness and refinement of the staff.
Worth to mention also the excellent location with a privileged view over the city of Porto (Ribeira).


What struck me most was precisely the food, which can be generally characterized as reinvented traditional Portuguese food, keeping the typical ingredients and the essence of the dishes, but giving some subtlety and lightness to them. I was particularly surprised with the mushroom and beans stew and the pork mixture with spinach cream (well, in contrast with the typical Portuguese braised pork cheeks, the flavor was way too bland, which I’d personally consider a minus). Totally worth trying the sautéed octopus with fried rice balls as well. Concerning the desserts, the French toast is not definitely the best in town, but the combination with the roasted apple foam makes it in my top 3 from now on.


Finally, and in contrast with most restaurants in town, the wine list is adequate with a great offer (well…I guess it’d be expec

This was our second meal at the George. We returned as our first was brilliant. The food was prepared and served totally differently to how it was served to us the first time. The tartare was unbalanced and spicy with peppers, whilst the forsythia time, it was amazingly balanced.
Restaurant
Dear Craig,

Thank you for sharing your feedback on The Fork, unfortunately this time we weren’t able to impress you, we’d like to invite you back to try our new winter menu, and leave you with far better memories.
