Stunning well prepared, cooked and presented food. Authentic Portuguese flavours. The team was friendly, but my highlights go to the chef. Impeccable service and incredibly well seasoned and cook to the exact point. Recommend without hesitating

Food, Customer service, Atmosphere.
Everything was truly fantastic.
We had bar seats so we had the opportunity to watch everything being made before our eyes. Delicious. The food was so tasty that we forgot to take pictures..... 🤣🤣🤣

Overall a bit disappointing, especially for the prices.
We were really disappointed to be pressured to be giving our table back. The host told us that we were warned by phone on the day of the reservation (we weren't). And she also started the 2 hour time on the table when just 2 (of our party of 4) arrived early and asked if we could come in for a drink. We weren't warned of this consequence of having an early drink - if we'd known we just would've gone nearby elsewhere. Not recommended overall.

Nice intimate place for a couple or two or three friends!They have some tables outside with heat lamps so the weather allowing it’s a nice option!The plates are to share tapas style and excite your taste buds!If you are starving and looking for a substantial meal this is not the place for you!Great wine selection and very friendly staff who know their wine and food menu!Try the green wine made from typical Portuguese grapes!Unusually tasty.

Being a Portuguese national, the food was ok. Some dishes with good flavours, some others not quite as they should have been but not entirely bad. Overall it was a good experience.

Wine options were good, and delicious. The only issue was that we felt very pushed to order quickly, despite having the table for 2 hours. We were told countless times the table wasn’t available after 8pm, and we should order food because it could take 45mins to arrive. After ordering all our food arrived within 10 minutes!!
Would come again but probably just for wine!

Great spot. Very helpful staff, excellent food and atmosphere. I would advise booking to ensure a good seat. Extensive wine list, not necessarily the cheapest but worth every penny if you like wine.

This is the second time I've visited Bar Douro so knew what to expect. The waiter was really attentive, everything is spotlessly clean and they even gave us a choice of seating which was lovely. The wine and the food were delicious. Well cooked came in time and was very filling. I can't remember the name of the dish but my favourite was the steak - scrumptious and the dessert I had was the chocolate mouse which was like a runny mouse with a giant chocolate cornflake in it. Deeeeelish. Highly recommend.

Came here for my birthday with my Portuguese girlfriend.

Dishes were fine, nothing particularly special for London. In fact we felt it lacked the 'Portuguese touch'.

The differences start with the tiny plates, lack of staples like clams / pork, to the flavour of the food... As well the usual Portuguese hospitality is missing... It was some of the tiniest octopus i ever seen 😅

The meal felt like a watered down and underwhelming Barrafina.

Also, even though I specified it was my birthday, there was no special mention nor any care given... I may as well should have gone somewhere else.. Extremely average meal for London, I would have been happier at Nandos to be honest.

Delicious! Yummy Portuguese food presented tapas style, with some modern twists of reinvention. I’m still thinking of that cinnamon ice-cream! What a lovely surprise and twist to a staple of Portuguese food/dessert: custard tart with cinnamon. Amazing!

Relaxed atmosphere with very good service. The food was in a tapas style but all of the Portuguese favourites were on the menu - sardines, Piti Piti chicken & bacalhau. The quality of the food was very good & the wine list was extensive.

All-in-all, we thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
