We were delighted to find this restaurant after it was recommended to us earlier in the day by our guide on a walking food tour. We were greeted by the very friendly owners who were brilliant hosts and made us feel very welcome. The food...was as good as the people. We enjoyed an excellent Francesinha and the Bacalhau a Bras. Both were superb. For desert we had the Leite de Creme and a house special of cookies and cream. The deserts were as good as the main courses. All enjoyed with a cold Super Bock to drink. We very much enjoyed our meal and the service. We hope to be back in Porto again very soon and when we do we will definitely be back for more great service and excellent local dishes.More

After reading so many raving reviews about this place, we were determined to visit, even though we'd heard that it can be incredibly busy. Thankfully, we headed there just before 4pm on a Tuesday and we managed to get a table no problem (there are...only 4 tables inside in total and a few outside so it can get pretty busy quickly so we were glad we managed to squeeze in! The staff here are so wonderful and welcoming and the menu is full of awesome traditional Portuguese cuisine! If it's your first time trying Francesinha, I'd definitely recommend trying it here!More
