    One of the best meals I have had in Porto. Thanks for an amazing new year . The selection of dishes were all tasty, my friends went crazy for the meat but being pescatarian I preferred the fish dishes

    Excellent service and food. The atmosphere outside was particularly nice after such a long lock down period and the city seeming to pick up on tourism. Always good to return to this place.

    Staff were excellent. However meat I ordered was very fatty and inedible. Staff understood fully and deleted this meal from bill. Otherwise very good.

    The fish salad was amazing, so much flavour. The Veal dish was too large, only half of the potato was necessary and maybe another vegetable, would be best.

    Lively restaurant in a good location. I was on holiday solo, so ate alone - this is definitely a place to come with company; good atmosphere and the larger tables were clearly having a great time. Service polite and helpful, were very accommodating of my bad attempts at speaking Portuguese! Gambas crocantes were exactly what they said (crunchy prawns!), nice but not special. Roasted octopus tasted great, with delicious onion confit that had been slow cooked in port - sadly the octopus was a bit overcooked (rubbery in places, but by no means ruined). Passion fruit pana cotta with crunchy pistachio throughout and a hazelnut centre was very different, but in a good way. Overall a pretty decent meal for a very reasonable price - would be happy to come back, but with a group of 5 or 6 people next time!

    Excellent restaurant. Great location, nice space, very good service, interesting and unusual menu. We loved the dishes we had: crispy shrimp appetizer, veal and cod diners and the mango crumble. We highly recommend.

    We reserved a table the evening of Festa São João and enjoyed excellent food and service. The venison carpaccio, game sausage, octopus and the cod (bacalhau salteado) were all exceptional and we still had room for the tarte fria 3 chocolates (the menu description in English - triple chocolate cold pie - doesn’t do it justice) and the chocolate ice cream soufflé. With port, of course!

    Did not start well as not allowed in until 7pm which is fair enough but also not allowed to sit at outside chairs, although others were?. Anyway once inside a different and much better waitress who looked after us perfectly all evening. We had an excellent table by the window where we could see all the St João festivities going on. Food was good, waitress kindly sorted the shared t bone steak to be cooked half blue and half rare. All went down very well including good desserts, wine and water. Reasonable price.

    We enjoyed our meal and experience so much, we made reservations and returned the following night for another excellent meal. Our favorites, were the bass in Phyllo dough and the octopus. Delicious!!

    Service is lacking in knowledge but also in being polite such as to take you to your table,offering water and asking if you would like a drink. Waiter - no knowledge of the wine on the Chalk Board nor of the Menu Food was very good.

About the restaurant

Harmonia perfeita: tradição à mesa e recuperação arquitetónica. No Largo de S. Domingos, junto ao Palácio das Artes e em pleno centro histórico do Porto, está (e muito bem) instalado o Traça, desde Junho de 2011.

Num prédio antigo onde em tempos funcionaram uma drogaria e uma papelaria, este espaço foi totalmente remodelado, procurando manter a memória de um edifício do século XVII, através dos materiais utilizados, dos objectos e da decoração, como o chão a imitar azulejos antigos, as peças em ferro e o quadro de ardósia onde se podem ler as sugestões do menu.

Uma excelente recuperação arquitetónica completada por uma ementa sugestiva e equilibrada.

Com especial incidência nos pratos de caça, a ementa é inspirada numa cozinha tradicional de influência ibérica e oferece algumas especialidades originais, como a salada de cecina (presunto de vaca).

A vibrante cena gastronómica do Porto encontra aqui, sem dúvida, um dos seus melhores exemplos, onde se aconselha a ir e ficar. Com tempo, para tirar o melhor partido de toda a experiência.
