  • I went directly on the terrace which offers a 360 degree view of the historic Porto, Gaia and the Douro. I have tasted a great port for a very affordable price. A friendly stage at the foot of the funicular and the bridge Dom Luis

  • Beautiful views, advanced menu attentive staff. Edit: I just wanted to stress how good the staff is, the came with recommendations and professionalism that was in my opinion well beyond their young age, I was very impressed. When I am in a new city I attempt to try a new place every meal, I went back here. Ran back really, it was raining profusely!
  • This was exactly what I was looking for in the port wine area. It's just a straight up and down tasting room where you can pick what you want- your simples all the way to 40 year aged. I liked that you don't have to lock into a tour and then have to settle for two wines like other places. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and will be happy to talk about your wine selections. The person we spoke with was a PhD student in viticulture. They also have free exhibits including a virtual reality sight through the entire port wine making process.
  • Great location to while away a couple hours with some great drinks and stellar views up the river. Gets packed solid mid afternoon so you may have to wait a bit for a lounger or table to free up but grab a port and sidle up to the railing and watch locals and tourists alike. DJ on the day we were there was mixing some great euro- trash beats. Good small plates too, and a great staff who were the model of serving efficiency - and unfailingly polite.
  • The port tasting 'experience' ... well it's not really any different to going to bar and ordering a glass of wine. There is no experience per say, just your average service. Wine was okay , knowledge of staff was generic.
  • Soft and stylish design. Cozy atmosphere and reasonable price for porto tasting
