The cozy and relaxing Oporto Cafe serves up authentic cuisine in a friendly environment known by locals as the place to get home-style Portuguese and Brazilian fare.
Twelve years of experience is something you can taste as you sample the traditional cooking made fresh from the kitchen of a Portuguese chef. Using only the finest recipes with a heavy influence on home-style quality. Oporto Cafe prepares only the most scrumptious selections. The fresh flavors and the extensive Portuguese wine list make Oporto a lunch-must for the business set. And taking a break from a hectic schedule to enjoy some feel-good food is quite often the top priority. But these movers and shakers are not the only ones who have discovered the city´s best Portuguese and Brazilian. Evening diners fill the restaurant eagerly awaiting leisurely dinner and a sip from a well-deserved glass of wine at Oporto

I called a couple days before to confirm they have Franchicina on the lunch and dinner menu. I also made a reservation on open table and mentioned in comments Franchisina and pastal de nata would be ordered as it was my hubbies bday. We arrived and were the only customers. However, we just chalked it up to being early. When we went to order Franchisina and Octopus we were informed that the sirloin was still frozen as well as the octopus. The lady went 2x to the chef to ask if they could do anything considering I had it in my reservation and called. Unfortunately it was a no go.
The lady serving (Virginia) was a sweetheart and apologized profusely. We decided just to get the bacalao appy and wine since we were very hungry. We also got the pastal de nata and a glass of port each. The food was alright and the server was very nice. However, the fact that they couldn’t accommodate both dishes we wanted as well as knowing the items aren’t fresh but frozen was a bummer too. Shame as this is the only Portuguese restaurant I could find that even had Franchisina on the menu. I may try again but only if I called and talked to Virginia ahead of time as to have a confirmation of ingredients being available.

Oporto is not the same restaurant as it used to be. For starters, the bread was old and dry, the wine collections was limited, and they did not have beef on a Friday at dinner time. Bad administration, nothing to blame to the waitress m, she was nice and delicate. Shame on the local. Not going back any time soon.

Unfortunately, our experience was not nearly as positive as in the past. While the portions were generous, the entrees took a very long time to come out, and the quality of the food was not up to par. I also presented a certificate for tax exemption since this was a work dinner associated with a non-profit institution. The certificate was not honored and there was no communication from the server to indicate that the bill would not be adjusted. We also ended up paying a very high fee for water that was too frozen to use until the end of the meal. This could have been an “off” night. If not, I’m very sad to see this decline.

Unfortunately, I will have to recommend to my colleagues that take university business elsewhere.

The food is decent but nothing special. We ordered cod fish (bacalao) in 3 different cooking styles and none was "delicious". Wines from Portugal are usually very good especially the Vinho Verde and the Alvarinho varieties, but the ones we had at the restaurant were ordinary. The ambience is pleasant (former Romeu restaurant) and service was courteous.

One of the best on Coral Way and service is exceptional.
I enjoyed the Chicken Skewers with Rice and the flair of seasonings was incredibly good.
The Shrimp in Garlic is also a favorite and while usually I like the Croquettes of Bacalo, this time they were dry and a bit tough. Nice and original wines well priced and a great place to enjoy a meal. Enjoy!

Excellent and thrilled this place is still going strong. Needed a late lunch place and I have always been a fan of Oporto and with two discerning close friends that wanted quiet with good food...Oporto was my choice.
Shrimp dishes all around which were fresh and excellent. Wine choice by our server was on point and still the very best Codfish croquets. Nice afternoon will definitely return, Enjoy!

If you like Cod (Bacalao), the salted dried fish so popular in Portugal and Italy and throughout Latin-America, you must go to this restaurant because they prepare it 100 different ways. Not really, but MANY different ways. And all we tried were delicious. Other items on the menu are probably good too, but we stuck to bacalao this time.

The restaurant is nicely appointed and the location is convenient, very close to Coral Gables with plenty of street parking. The service was wonderful, friendly and professional. They have a good wine list, very moderately priced.

We will be back!
