Casa da Companhia, located on vibrant Flower Street in Porto, is renowned for its Mediterranean gastronomic experience. Executive Chef has crafted a menu of dishes inspired by his childhood, his roots and his accumulated knowledge over the years. The menu is filled with international trends and spices from India, with a focus on local produce from the Porto coast, plains and Trás-os-Montes mountains.

As the former headquarters of Real Companhia Velha, the famous Port company, guests are invited to partake in the tradition of ‘fire opening’ a bottle of Port every Wednesday and Saturday from 6 pm to 7 pm, accompanied by a glass of Port and a chocolate truffle. This is just one of the ‘Memorable Rituals’ that Vignette Collection hotels offer to make every stay unforgettable.
