“Galerias Bar has an international atmosphere, as it is very popular among tourists. It plays all sorts of music, but predominantly hits, danceable rock and 80's music. People do mingle and socialize quite easily here. There is live music until 1 AM. Cheap drinks!”

“The Rua das Flores has long been the city's best street for opening a new business. And if it's a cool, well decorated, lively restaurant, then success is practically guaranteed. The long communal table does have a hint of the school canteen about it – but don't worry, this is not cafeteria food. Pretty much everything is good here: from appetisers such as smoked salmon and quail eggs to larger dishes (which you can share) such as the Lafões veal. The latter is one of this busy street's highlights. Tips: – The desserts here are among Porto's most creative. Order the biscuit cake, served by the centimetre. – The restrooms have a 6 and a 9 on the doors. Yeah, we're not sure either. ”

“In terms of environment, the Cantinho do Avillez in Porto is also a friendly, welcoming and relaxed space. How could it not be, quality is a priority. As in the Cantinho de Lisboa, the cuisine is inspiring with influences of travel. The menu offers some of the Cantinho's successful dishes like the Peixinhos da Horta with Tartar Sauce; Scallops marinated with avocado; Sautéed Chicken Livers with onion compote and Port; Cod slivers, loose crumbs, BT egg and explosive olives; the Risotto Portobello mushrooms with smoked bacon, parmesan and basil; the Barrosa PDO burger with onions, foie gras and fries; the Hazel 3; ... ”

“One of the best "Francesinha" in Porto, but is also a beautiful place. Better book on week-ends. Careful : everything on the table, that you didn't ask for, is "you pay what you eat"”

“We don’t hold back about the stuff we love, and when it comes to the Adega São Nicolau, we love everything. There’s a menu full of great dishes – chicken bordelaise, octopus fillets with rice, or the perfect appetiser, cod cakes. Then there’s the desserts (all homemade) or the outdoors tables, overlooking the Douro river. Then there’s the great service – António Coelho has been doing this since he was 11 (in a legally okay way, we’re sure). The restaurant is small, the queues are (very) long. Make a reservation or be prepared to wait. Try the tongue stew. Honestly. Rua de São Nicolau, 1 Ribeira Porto 4050-561 Price: Up to €30”
