Vinum - Graham's Cave
Vinum restaurant & wine bar is probably, with Casa da Cha in Boa Nova, the two most beautiful restaurants in Porto. Both have an incredible view.
Vinum used to belong to the world famous Port producer the Graham family and now belongs to the Symington family who continue to produce the best Ports and Douro wines in the region.
When they decided to launch a bold new restaurant project, they looked for co-investors with similar values, which they found with the Sagardi family, the ideal creative partners who share their dedication to gastronomy and wine. The Sagardis have a famous empire in Spain, they reign over 32 restaurants in the country, mainly in the Basque region.
Vinum restaurant & wine bar is a perfect setting for a lunch or dinner with family and/or friends. There are tables in the veranda with a stunning view over the vineyards and the Douro, but the customers can also sit in the main dining room next to Graham’s Port’s fully functioning 19th century cellars.
In terms of food and wines, they have a traditional menu at 50 euros for six dishes which is a very good price. But, for our lunch on July 16th, 2021 we chose à la carte.
Our entry, the clams from Ria Formosa Bulhão Pato style —Algarve was a delicious, mouth-watering dish. It was so good that our son ate half the dish. Our main dishes, the calamari rice with black ink; the red mullet with shrimp bisque and zucchini flower; the "Vaca velha" filet mignon with grilled vegetables; and the grilled duck magret with foie gras and fresh caramelized onions were all very well cooked and flavorsome. Finally, for dessert, the pineapple from the Azores caramelized in the oven, Graham's 20-Year-Old Tawny Port and coconut ice cream stood out and was a very satisfying final touch to our meal.
The wine list is extraordinary and very affordable too. Just reading the wine list was a delight actually.
The service in French was impeccable and very nice.
Vinum restaurant & wine bar at Graham's cave is a knock-out in terms of setting and top notch in terms of food, wine and service. A kind of place we wish we can keep it to ourselves.
