Ar de Rio

Portuguese in Vila Nova de Gaia

A rectangle of glass and honeycombed steel seemingly teleported in from a future era, Ar de Rio is one of Porto's most striking examples of avant-garde architecture. Mirroring the changing moods of the city and Douro in its facade, it impresses more with its design and views than with its food – francesinha is the menu staple. Or just go for a drink.
