This restaurant is a hidden gem, in a remote street of Porto. When you push the door, you enter in another world, where the very nice staff will feed you on excellent dishes that use local products, but with a modern twist. The only bad point: they keep with this most annoying portuguese habit of putting food on your table... More

This restaurant is not overly hyped. From the moment we walked in to the time we left we were treated as special and cared for guests. All of the staff were extremely gracious and you are cared for by a team of individuals. Besides for the marvelous service the food was top rate and came to our table at a... More

From the moment we knocked on the door, we received friendly and caring service. The meal was fantastic; the wines as well; and the bill in the end very reasonable. Highly recommended.

We had a special dinner here for our anniversary. The service was impeccable but the food was even better. It was probably the best meal we had in our 10 days in Portugal.

The food and the suggested wines were absolutely first-class cooking level. The service personel managed it to read the wishes before they were told. We appriciated this visit, particulary as it was less formal than other 'guide michelin' restaurants and/or hotels in Porto (regarding the style of the service personel and dress code). The (extensive) menu including three bottles of... More

We went to dine in this restaurant for the celebration of my husband's 50th birthday and after reading the good comments on Tripadvisor. We had a very friendly welcome and the personnel is really hospitable. We were 5 persons and on the table were already 6 appetizers (the bill afterwards told us that the appetizers were of the amount of... More

I booked O Paparico for my partner's birthday and from the get go, the staff were very accommodating and helpful, arranging a birthday dessert. Despite other reviews, the restaurant is quite simple to find and the exact details are clearly outlined on their website. The door isn't marked with a name, however is still easy to find and even our... More

Being a lover of Portuguese traditional food I cannot be indifferent with the refinements made to those dishes.

I can't add much more to what has already been said about this restaurant. Amazing food and perfect service. One of my favourite restaurants anywhere in the world.
