]This Ribeira joint is where many of Porto's top chefs go when they want to eat good, homestyle Porto cooking. Of course its location in a charming Ribeira alleyway makes it popular with tourists too, but the cuisine is authentic and the service friendly. Behind a unprepossessing exterior is a low, dramatically lit dining room with a curved wood ceiling. Fried octopus (filetes de polvo) is a signature dish, but it's also good for tripe, grilled fish, and unusual dishes like oxtail stew, or chicken slow cooked in red wine.
