by Armand on Mario's Bistro | Porto Cupecoy

Had such a great evening here with my wife! We celebrated our anniversary after reading about this restaurant on this page and are very happy choosing to go 🙂
We were warmly welcomed and informed about specials, each chose an appetizer and main course. Should have believed the "portion" part as we were too full for dessert 😉 So yes; the portions were really good for the price!
Best of all, the great service, wine recommendations, and of course the food! We took a mix between daily specials and menu items: L'escargot and carpaccio as appetizers, filet mignon, and fresh mussels as main courses. The food was simply to die for, what a great taste, you got to love the French for this.
After dinner chef Mario came to check on us, really friendly and genuine person.

Overall we were very happy. Thank you for this great evening Mario and the team, we loved it!

See you next year, Nathalie & Armand
