A MUST GO TO EATERY

Three couples had the private room and was presented with a opening table that we had to take a photo of. Service was impeccable, every food was fantastic and we were treated as special guests. we suggest you get half portions of at least several entrees per person and share them.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel (with an advanced booking) and we were absolutely delighted with EVERYTHING. Service was top notch (but not in your face), food was out of this world and the setting absolutely charming. Would recommend this place to everyone wishing to have a truly exceptional dining experience in Portugal. Thank you for making... More

A very attractive old property, beautifully fitted out to retain character. Welcoming, friendly, attentive - quite formal- service. We did find ourselves a little isolated (6 of us) in what was almost a separate room, so felt we missed out a little on the ambience (and the guilty pleasure of looking at what other folks had ordered!). Slightly odd they... More

We went for dinner here on our last night in Porto. It was a great way to end our trip. The food was fantastic and the service even better. They made some great recommendations for us to try and we were impressed by it all. A few other reviewers mentioned the appetizers on the table were deceiving. In most areas... More

The meal was quite delicious but not our most memorable in Porto. The appetizers were good but too generous so we sent a couple back - and no charge, of course. This was more a treat than others indicated. The choices were some we would not have made but very tasty. The main (half portions) were very plentiful thus well... More

We loved the food and service at O Paparico. Gorgeous monk fish risotto was particularly impressive. The quirk of having starters on your table on arrival seemed a bit unnecessary and pretentious to be honest - but not a big deal, in that they were pretty much what we would have ordered anyway. Also suggest a small sign with the... More

Food here was pretty good and service was spectacular. Why not give them more stars then, right? Well, when we arrived at the restaurant we sat, had a cocktail and was brought to our table. Upon reaching the table there were three dishes of apps placed there, perhaps it was my misunderstanding of Portuguese customs, but in the states if... More

Each dish is a piece of art, personnel treats their visitors as kings :-) The price is high above the clouds for Porto but it's worth it

We chose this restaurant for our first dinner in Porto, back then it was the #1 on TA's chart, and by the Michelin guide there seemed to be no other starred restaurants in Porto's downtown. The attentive service, stone-clad walls and white tablecloth deco are at the Michelin star level; perfect old time charms accompany the guests inside out and... More

We knew we only had one day in Portugal so we needed to get this done right away . Reservations open 30 days in advance so we waited patiently and we were not disappointed !!! The taxi driver dropped us off in front of a door with just a number. No names. You knock on the door and the magic... More
