"Aduela" Porto is a small and cleverly decorated spot that really has an ambiance that would make you stay a while come by for a bite and drink, I'd say.

In a blink of an eye, Aduela gathered a respectable entourage and is now one of my favourite places to stop by. Small, tasteful and cleverly decorated, Aduela has it all. So, if you're in the mood for a bite, or just planning on drinking some wine with a couple of friends, Aduela will suit your wishes like a glove!

The first thing that I always enjoy when going to Aduela is the music. It might be a playlist, but it works better than most DJs, clearly an area taken with care and taste. Just to cite a few, last time I was there I heard Spain (I almost forgot how good they are!), Jeff Buckley and David Bowie, among other great classics.

So, good music usually combines with good food, and thats precisely what happens in Aduela. You can find great cheese and ham, Portuguese canned delicacies and, my personal favourite, the "tostas" (well, kind of toasts), with a varied choice of ingredients. It is perfect to share with someone, while drinking wine. Word to the wise, if you choose the pepperoni with cheese toast, order something refreshing (perhaps a white green wine) to put out the fire in your mouth.

Lying right in front of Teatro Carlos Alberto, Aduela is a must, suitable for all ages, alone or while travelling with friends. Save some space in your stomach for this charming spot!
