20 euros for a spaghetti with mushrooms and cheese (literally) is not fair ... spaghetti alone for the kids for 10 euros neither.. the service was great and kind but the value wasn’t

Thanks for your comment but sometimes we dont understand certain comments and evaluations. The "spaghetti" you ate is not spaghetti is homemade linguine made twice a day by our chef. We only use daily fresh ingredients and to have great and kind service as you say, we have to atract the best.Thats why we consider our prices fair. We know that in your case our staff really took good care of your family, as always,specially your children.

A great little place! The hostess was just adorable. We both had the cod linguine with a side of sautéed vegetables.
Our total was 50,50€

It’s a tiny place but very cute. The food is quite tasty & good wine.

We had dinner in Terra Nova. Oysters were very very good. I wasnt so crazy about fried cotfish but Jessica was so sweet to replace it with fish meetballs which tastes really good. They have good wine and a fantastic dessert “creme caramel with raspberry sorbet. The Best dessert in Portugal . I will always remember it. Thank you :-)

Cannot recommend Terra Nova enough! Not only was the food absolutely incredible, Mimi provided us the with the most fantastic service. If you are in Porto, make sure to book in advance because this restaurant is in high demand - although saying that, we dined without a reservation! Mini you were fantastic, and we will 100% return when back in Porto!

We read the postings on Tripadvisor and had high expectations for our dinner - and the food was actually quite good and looked very fine. But they have serious problems in their delivery of this: some of the food did not arrive as hot as it should be. The waiters were not that good in English and were unable to answer questions regarding the food. We were seated downstairs where the cold from outside came in all the times the door opened - not so nice. Several times the light went partially out due to use of too much electricity in the kitchen compared to the capacity of the fuses - should this not be fixed!
When we had finished our meal the waiter came in with new plates for bread and new knifes for bread - it seemed she was doing the table for the next guests....?

Thank you for your comment. Your opinion is very important to Terra Nova. We would choose this opinion over a thousand ones that said that everything was absolutely perfect but the food was not good. The issues you mentioned some of them are ours to fix, and we appologise for them and we are doing our best to overcome them, but others are not and we are dependent on other entities.For us "the food was actually quite good and looked very fine" is not disappointing at all. Hope to see you soon.
