Café Piolho – Âncora D’Ouro

Café Ancora D´Ouro has long been affectionately called “Café Piolho”. In fact, no one knows the reason for such a designation, but the theories are many. One of them is that the cafe was frequented by the students of the university, but the teachers also went there and the coexistence was somewhat ceremonious. Then someone started to say that this was a "foolishness". Opened since 1909, the café is a meeting point for students; it was a mandatory stop for poets, politicians, activists, among others. It is a cafe that is part of Porto's history, where you can have a drink, snack and dine, even after hours. Try the francesinha or sarrabulho porridge, from a varied offer.

Restaurant specialized in hamburgers founded in 2014. It seeks to democratically serve all types of public. Their artisanal hamburgers are, using the words of the management, to enjoy slowly, served on bread or plate with the best ingredients and inspired by the cuisine of the world, but not forgetting the Portuguese traditions. In addition to the calf hamburger, it serves salmon burger and vegetarian options, which can be accompanied with lemonade or a craft beer. The homemade fries that come with the hamburgers are the object of praise by many customers, as well as the friendliness of the service. We also have an outdoor terrace for good weather days.

Masaki Onishi is the name of the well-known Japanese chef behind Ichiban’s gastronomic offer. The japanese embassy in Portugal picked him up from the Kyoshinzan restaurant in Kyoto and managed to keep him as a chef for three years. Today, in a restaurant located right by the sea, where fresh fish arrives every day, the offer goes far beyond sushi and sashimi, with amazing fish and meat dishes. The restaurant’s décor is minimalist in light tones so that every meal is enjoyed with total lightness and peace of mind, combined with the friendliness and careful explanation of the dishes, making the meal an experience of taste discovery and an authentic adventure for japanese culture.
