Occupying a railway arch in London’s buzzing Flat Iron Square, Bar Douro was created to bring authentic Portuguese food and wine to London. Sit at the counter in our azulejos-tiled dining room and watch the chef's meticulously work in the open kitchen. A large outdoor terrace is the perfect place to soak up the sun with a White Port Tonic in hand.

Sharing the spirit of Portugal with the UK through honest food, characterful wines and the celebration of cultural stories.

    Tasty as always, however the portions are way smaller than they used to be, especially the Bacalhau á Braz. The starters were very good.

    Nice little place with counter dining inside and tables outside. Service attentive and efficient. Good choice on the menu, I wouldn’t go back for food though. Google for chat over small plates and drink

    I really don't understand how this place managed to get such a high rating. This was genuinely one of the worst meals I've ever had. Admittedly they notified us they had no gas and that half of the menu wasn't available - but that's all they did, no apologies- but that doesn't explain why the half that was, was so awful. A joyless, over-priced, badly cooked experience. Truly, truly awful.

    This place is a real gem if you did not know it was here you would miss it. Waiting staff are fab explaining the menu. Portions are adequate to share 3 dishes each and we were a part of four left us feeling stuffed. Managed to squeeze in the dessert of baked custard. House white wine was also delicious. We went late lunchtime I can imagine the area is buzzing of an evening. Marked noise as moderate as you hear the trains (it is in the arches) but this does not spoil the atmosphere of the place at all. We will definitely return.

    Loved the food but considered the wine over priced, the service was good but not outstanding. Whilst the plates are classed as tapas sized a couple of the more expensive were positively mean, the bacalhao abras seemed to be missing the fish which was a shame as the flavour was good. If there were less tourists and more buzz IIwould return but may need to wait for winter to come, I read that some thought this better than being in Lisboa - sadly no apart from the azulajos.

    Bar Douro is one of our favourite restaurants in London and yet again it was utterly fabulous. Amazing food, fairly priced wine list, wonderful staff and amazing attention to detail. The skill of the chefs working in such a tiny kitchen to produce such incredible food impeccably timed is just a joy to watch. Thank you!

    A real gem around London Bridge. Perfect for a family meal - we had our young daughter with us and were meeting my parents and pregnant sister so wanted somewhere we could properly sit down, with nice toilets, etc and Bar Douro was ideal. they don’t have high chairs but we got one from the place next door and they were really accommodating. All the food was exceptional, gorgeous wine list and lovely atmosphere. The service is friendly and attentive without being oppressive. Definitely worth a visit!
