The location on the map is not correct, I expected it to be near Mercure Hotel Braga Centro, but it must be on the other side of Braga.

Although the franchesina is not as superb as we thought it would be, as told by local friends. But it was still good. Great service by the waitress and she was nice enough to give us 4 beers to sample before ordering. There were many choices of beer available. Do come early. As early as 7.30pm because after that the... More

Thought we should try this restaurant based on the rave reviews. It is more like a cafeteria than a bar, and jam-packed with locals. It is the place for the Portuguese speciality, which consists of several pieces of bread, slices of ham, a peace of steak, all topped with 2 fried eggs and served in a large bowl in a... More

Just as advised by other users. Well worth the trip to eat the Francesinha. I would go again... And again... And again.

It was my first time in Braga, and my colleagues took me to this place. I ate a chicken francesinha, which I found to be very tasty, the sauce was marvellous, along with the fries.. This place can be very crowded, so plan in advance, also parking is very difficult to find near by. We were lucky to find a... More

This Francesinhas specialized restaurant has one of the best francesinhas in Braga area. The sauce is kind different from other places but very good. To drink we'll find a big variety of beers manly Europe. Be also prepared to wait around half to one hour to get table as this place is usually crowded.

It's a very famous place in Braga, so it can get really crowded, especially on weekends. It has enough space, though. the speciality is the Francesinha, but this one is different from the typical one: the sauce is a bit sweeter and not so spicy as the traditional one. It is very good, though, the meat is really tender, and... More

Please have in mind that this is a kind of fast food restaurant. The decoration is simple but nice. Everybody is very sympathetic and helpful. The Francesinha (the house specialty)? Amazing. And you can try them with a big variety of beers mainly from Portugal, Belgium, Germany and Ireland. The problem is that, although you are asked what you want... More

No doubt, may be the best place to eat a "francesinha" in Braga. Very good atmosphere and plenty of choices in national and international beers. Tip: You must get there before 8pm on weekends to get a table.
