About Digby

A gastronomic experience with a view.

When the cult of flavors and fresh ingredients incites the desire to create something new, the result is Digby: a restaurant born from the passion to celebrate the traditions of Portuguese cuisine, while adding a new twist. Meat is the protagonist and lays the foundations to try a cuisine thought into the utmost detail. After all, Digby finds itself in the award-winning 5-star boutique art hotel, Torel Avantgarde - where everything is based on the art of creation.

If you want to enjoy an exquisite meal combined with some of the best wines that Portugal has to offer or simply enjoy one of our exclusive cocktails on the terrace with one of the best views of Porto - Digby is your place.

Inspired by the glamor of the 1930s, Digby is an elegant space that features brown and gold tones as an extension of its own view of the river at dusk. Portuguese furniture with handmade design - mostly in wood, cork and velvet - appeals to comfort, making you feel truly at home.

Time is the key in Tenro by Digby – at both: at the time of cooking, and at the time of enjoying. At Digby, we give you all the time necessary – and wanted - time so you can enjoy the best food.

Tenro by Digby. The concept that lingers in the name of tradition.

Our Menus

A journey through the richness of Portuguese cuisine.

Our menus revisit comfort food, without leaving aside the aesthetic care of the presentation. We believe that creating a dish is an art form and the various menus in our DIGBY reflect this. Also present is the concern to offer healthy cuisine, with the wide use of national products and homemade production, as is the case of all fresh pasta or even the beet bread of the Hamburguer Tenro.

Digby Bar no Torel Avantgarde


We have a vast wine list available, with the best Portuguese wines, covering all regions with their unique characteristics.

The virtuoso namesake of our restaurant is Sir Kenelm Digby. Born on July 11, 1603, Sir Digby was known for his versatility, being a diplomat, courtier, natural philosopher, astrologer and author of a cookbook. But it was a more prosaic invention that sealed its place in history, because Sir Kenelm Digby was the inventor of the modern wine bottle. So here in Digby, it's all about wine. We also honor it with wine bottle decorations throughout our space.
