Where to eat in Porto centre

(5 answers)
By Lucy Traveller March 4, 2018

Hi, can anyone recommend a middle price traditional restaurant in the centre for dinner. Taking friends for their first visit to Porto and don't know where to eat. Thanks for your help. We're going to visit the Cathedral and take them to the river area. Hopefully try the Port caves too as not been over the river before 😀

You can try "Mercado" inside Hard Club building or "Taberna Santo Antonio" in Jardim das Virtudes (this one is more traditional). None of them are expensive.

Muito obrigada. Really looking forward to trying some of your suggestions next week ! Lx
To eat in Oporto go to thr restaurant "Buraco" in rua do Bolhão. Tipical and very good, you eat like in a portuguese home.

Hi Lucy! There are thousands of places to eat in downtown Porto. Of course, downtown is more for tourists... To enjoy high quality at a good price, it is necessary to leave the center. Near the river it is still more touristy ...
Of course you need to eat 'francesinha' once., Ther are a lot of places near Coliseu (as Lado B) to do that.
But in the center you can find good things that I also go with friends as for example:

For street food (it's a good idea): Casa Guedes; Venham mais 5; Conga; For dessert: Natas Douro and Leitaria Quinta do Passo for an éclaire.
There is a place not in the real center called Mercado Bom Sucesso where you can find more than 20 small street restaurantes in one place. It is close to Hotel Musica (same space) and it's perfect for a night with friends.

For classic dinner way: Cantinho do Avillez; Brasão Cervejaria, Cantina 32, Abadia no Porto, etc.

Thanks for all your information. The Mercado will be very interesting. It sounds like the Mercado do Ribeiro in Lisbon ! Which is brilliant.
Adega de s nicolau, close to the river
Reitoria, close to clérigos
Tapa bento, close to s bento train station
