I had wanted to visit Flat Iron Square
and Bar Douro for some time. It did not disappoint. The food was absolutely lovely, the service great, the outdoor set up for all weather (heaters, covers), great wine & port! Will be rebooking again.

It’s my 5th time at Bar Douro and I noticed food recipes were slightly changed. The sausage balls tasted differently alongside salt cod hash.

Menu is slightly changing from ‘traditional’ Portuguese dishes.

More expensive than before as well.

Also they didn’t have the caramel mouse, which was the best desert in the menu. She explanation was that was seasonal but that doesn’t make any sense since it’s condensed milk, almond and eggs.

Food is delicious especially the garlic prawns and croquettes. Very enjoyable small plates of food with a glass of white port and tonic. Outdoor seating is spacious and we were lucky to have the sun.

Had a great first meal back post lockdown at Bar Duoro, the food was top notch as always and the service warm and friendly. Even this cold British April, with the covers and heaters sitting outside for a couple of hours to eat was cosy enough!

Both me and my partner were looking forward to this meal, but it was super disappointing, the social media image looked super good, attention to detail and it looked as it would be one of the best meals ever.
But their image didn’t match their food at all, tepid warm food ☹️ the chicken didn’t taste like piri piri, the cod fritters tasted reheated and the sauce tasted as if it’s been stored in a plastic container.

We were bemused by the service, I don’t believe the staff need to make customers feel like they’re doing them a favour by serving them.

Learning how to speak to customers in a friendly manner are the basics.

The sparkling wine was fine, nothing special.

We got a cold table near the staff entrance despite an empty table available for at least one hour of the 1.5 hour booking we had, and despite the fact that we booked weeks in advance and even requested a sunny table, there was no regard for this.

Not coming back, with all the choice in Flat Iron square and Borough Market.

Overall food was nice. This is my second time going to the Bar Douro. This time wasn't as good as the first time.

A few suggestions to up their game.

-The bread should be served warm with a bigger portion of Olive oil.
-The same for the custard tart desert.
The service was really good, the staff were friendly.

Wonderful spot - great food, fast service, and in a sheltered area (in case it rains while you eat outside!). Beans & cured egg yolk were the start of the entrees.
