Cantina 32 🍴
One of our favourite food experiences while in Porto was at Cantina 32. Entering the restaurant feels like entering one of those cool and trendy new places in Milan or New York for example – but not in a pretentious way at all. Their food is seriously good and feels homey and again, not pretentious. They serve an upgrader version of McDonalds’ fries with cheese on top, ridiculously good pork ribs and a whole octopus to share. R. das Flores 32, Porto.
Adega Sao Nicolau 🍴
Just next to a cute little square, a stone’s throw away from the water, you can find this adorable restaurant. The outdoor terrace is cute and if it’s sunny, it might be the perfect place to stop for a bite with a cooling breeze. They serve traditional Portuguese dishes with no fuzz and that’s pretty much it. I went for the chicken in red wine which I very much enjoyed. R. de São Nicolau 1, Porto.
Restaurante Terreiro 🍴
A few steps away from the restaurant above, located on the little square, you’ll find this restaurant specialised in fish. The terrace is irresistible during sunny days! Largo do Terreiro 11/12, Porto.
One of my favourite food experience in a while happened at Almeja. This beautiful gem, decorated with modern details against the original stone walls is a can’t miss while in Porto. They have a delicious tasting menu for a reasonable price that I definitely recommend! The service was impeccable and I’m already dreaming about returning in the future one day. Rua de Fernandes Tomás 819, Porto.
Combi Coffee ☕️
The specialty coffee and the trendy coffee shops have reached Porto as well! And Combi Coffee is the one I managed to try while there. I’m sure there are many more, but a girl can only have so many coffees each day, haha! Rua Morgado Mateus nº29, Porto.
Porto AS 1829 Hotel 🛏
During our stay in Porto, we stayed at the Porto AS 1829 Hotel. It’s the perfect location in the city, beautifully decorated and very friendly staff who was more than helpful with recommendations for eating and sightseeing while in town. 45-55, Largo São Domingos, Porto.
