We ordered the good-value set lunch, but unfortunately the standard of the food was below expected. The cod hash was bland and looked like it had been thrown together with leftover overcooked (crispy?) chips. The pastel de nata had a lumpy custard and the crust on mine was rock solid.
Absolutely delicious food in pretty and modern surroundings.
It is a great little place, loved the food and the bar in general. It is more of a bar than a restaurant, so quite noisy. The staff was excellent.
Lovely food. Better even than in Portugal!
Fantastic small plates, we struggled to pick a dish we liked the most! Very intimate space and attentive staff. Great for a date or max group of 4.
What a fantastic find. Quality service, delicious food. I’d never tried salt cod before but I loved it and would return just for that, although all of the food was really enjoyable. Highly recommended.
Fantastic food and wonderful service - would definitely recommend
I am afraid I resent pushy service. For instance, we ordered 4 Portugese custard tarts for desert and he told us he assumed we wanted with ice cream. No, if we had wanted ice cream we would have ordered it. This and a couple of other minor but annoying examples marry an otherwise very enjoyable lunch. Please do not go down that pushy road - word gets out and people stop coming.
Too small and only bar seats, but food good
Delicious food, great service, perfect for catch-up's over tapas style food.
Great food, cute place!
Second visit to Bar Douro lived up to expectations, absolutely faultless. Amazing food and great atmosphere, service and food. Will definitely return.
Really nice ! I loved it, it reminded me of the dinners I had at my Portuguese's friends. Good value for money. The only downside was that I was so full, I could have done with a nap afterwards but could not do that at work! 😁
The food and wine were lovely and the staff were really friendly and helpful
Really good food, must try the bacalhau à Brás and the croquetes de alheira
Fantastic Portuguese small plates, fresh fish, meats and cheeses, amazing tomatoes, asparagus, wines and excellent service. Recommend sitting at the bar and enjoy watching them prepare each dish. Well worth a visit and especially if good weather as you can sit outside
Great food and great ambience, service was prompt and attentive
Very tasty food,excellent staff and cosy place!
This restaurant is fantastic. Looks beautiful with marble top bar style tables and blue and white tiles. The food was amazing, great choice, huge flavours. And proper Portuguese desserts, rich and indulgent - and totally worth saving room for! Really enjoyed being able to talk to the chef about the dishes and watch them being created. Can't wait to visit again.
It’s my second time there and I will return many time again because the food is excellent! Portuguese food with a twist. I recommend it vividly!
A small selection of small plates, big selection of wine. All was good, particularly the octopus with sweet potato. Love the tiled decor, it took me back to Portugal. My only complaint is that bar seating isn't the most comfortable so for me this is better for a quick meal.
Delicious food and wine! Service was extremely efficient and the waiters and waitresses were friendly and polite. Would definitely recommend. The octopus is a must-order!
Delicious, fresh with great service and the house red is super smooth on the palette.
Food is amazing. Cozy place. Good vibes. I would strongly recommend!!
Absolutely fabulous experience. The staff were all incredibly friendly and well informed. We sat at the bar and spoke with the chef while he prepared our meal, and every item we tasted was our new favorite.
Great food and wine, helpful waiter. It would have been a 5 star review if we’d had a warmer welcome, and if the bar staff had been friendlier.
Food is good and staffs are hospital. Will recommend friend and go in the future trying other courses.
The service is a bit slow but the food is really good, an authentic Portuguese place.
Beautifully designed place with amazing honest food and relaxed vibe. Totally stole my heart
Great as ever
Great menu with unique dishes - highly recommend crispy polenta (star dish and my guest and I would return for this alone!), Jerusalem artichokes and Octopus. Baccala is a big portion but didn't meet the other dishes standards.
Small and quaint restaurant with pretty interior and nice terrace but service is slow even with a lot of staff - knowledgeable when they are available and have great wine recommendations.
I come to Bar Douro once every few weeks and it never disappoints. The food is delicious, especially the sausage croquetas and the octopus. I’ve just booked on one of their guest chef evenings and I can’t wait!
Nice and cosy. Food was pretty good but the service made it really memorable- our waitress was great, very knowledgeable and made some food recommendations and also offered up a complimentary custard tart at the end of evening. Good value for London too.
Great food and really friendly and helpful waiters
Sat at the bar which was great too!
Great place to meet friends for fantastic food. Very relaxed and a nice atmosphere
Great food, although a wider variety would be welcome. I wish the seating was a bit more comfy, it's bar stools as it's such a tiny place. But buzzy atmosphere, good food and wine, friendly service. Definitely recommend.
Friendly and the best food ever.
Lovely food and great ambience - perfect size for a casual after work evening
Straightforward menu, delicious food, good wine and great ambience. An enjoyable experience.
Fantastic authentic portugese restaurant. Service and food are excellent. Recommend the white port.
Sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen and enjoy watching the chefs at their work.
Will definitely go again and again and again. Booking is recommended due to limited space.
