Very pricey! £12 for 4 large prawns and £11 for small amount of octopus. Nice wine and service. Too expensive to go back 😩

My wife and I had separate commitments in the evening so we went to Bar Douro for a late lunch. It was my first visit and I was seriously impressed. We had totally different meals and everything was outstanding. Great value too with the January 25% offer.

Bar Duoro is a beautiful place with very friendly and helpful staff. The service was great, we didnt feel rushed at all. great wine list and if you like pork, plenty of choice! I am a vegetarian and I could have done with more vegetarian choices - there were some but more would have been great. I would def go back and have already recommended it to people.

A happy find, an authentic Portuguese tapas restaurant. You can opt to be seated watching the two chef's working hard to make your food fresh right in front of your eyes.

It is late December but this goes down as one of my favourite meals of the year. We sat at the bar and watched the chef's going about their work while eating some delicious food and sharing a bottle of reasonably priced vinho verde. Highlights from the menu were: the smoked Portuguese sausage croquettes, the octopus, the cumin carrots, and a lamb special that was on - honourable mention for the saltfish hash and the grilled grail.

A terrific ambience and excellent food. I really very strongly recommend Bar Douro.

Booked ahead - 2 bar seats for a late lunch. Busy and noisy. Service was efficient and friendly, food was small portions and bite sized from the lunchtime menu. Everything we chose was delicious. The red wine (Churchill) was good too. Our Portuguese-speaking waiter kindly brought us cinnamon to sprinkle on the pastel de natas. Decor is light and bright with lovely tiling, marble-topped bar with high bar stools. a good choice for a light and tasty lunch.

A splendid taste on the Portuguese culture. Authentic dishes and great wines to match. Love the tiles and bar seating. It's a small place, so make sure you book a table ahead of time!

Amazing, authentic Portuguese dishes with hospitality to match. Dishes are on the pricey side - where it's tapas style recommending 2-3 dishes per person and meat/fish dishes at around £12

The food wasn't great. The bacalhau was too oily and the pork was rare in the middle. The service is not amazing either, I'm planning to go there again. They are trying to sell this as a Portuguese restaurant but it isn't really.

Two of us had a great time here, were able to make a last minute same-day reservation and sat at the bar. We enjoyed watching the cooks - one in particular was very animated and funny. Wine selection was great and food was excellent. No faults! We will be back.

Nice atmosphere, unfortunately very small portions and not good value for money. Even with 7 tapas between two of you you’ll go home hungry. More like a snack than a proper dinner.

I went there for a late Girls lunch on a Saturday. I was surprised at first with the bar seating inside the restaurant and was worried we would not be comfortable enough. But we end up staying more than 3 hours. The food was delicious, the wine card is not too bad either and it’s all reasonably priced. You have to try the salt cod fritters, octopus and roasted squash, these were my favourites. Will definitely go back.
