My partner and I saw in the new year at this restaurant and had a fabulous time! Excellent, friendly service and delicious food and wine. Generous too, as wine glasses were regularly topped up. We hope to return!

All the other reviews about the fantastic food and desserts and completely accurate - so that is a complete hit. What I loved was that they customized the menu for me (a vegetarian) and provided great choices to me. Loved my mushroom risotto and chocolate mousse. Great experience

Although our expectations were high - Trip Advisor high rate and friends' recommendations built them up - my wife and I were flabbergasted with the dinner we experienced! From the starters to desserts we enjoyed a very careful and authentic/modern Portuguese cuisine with a very good service. Highly recommended!

QA very enjoyable evening at O Paparico. Tables emaculately laid with a welcoming selection of starters. Certainly presents itself as a high quality Portuguese home entertaining guests for dinner. The Veal with mushrooms was delicious! Do not be put off by the distance of this Restuarant from the centre of Porto, well worth the taxi fare. For a high quality... More

We celebrated our 24th anniversary at O Paparico. Understated but very thorough and attentive service complemented a really wonderful meal. I cannot think of a single flaw in the evening (except the cab driver wanting to drop us off next door... I expected that and made him stick around until we had found the place, with the help of a...

The restaurant is a 10 euro taxi fare from the old port area but definitely worth the trip. On the night we went I think we were the only tourists in a full house. The staff have good English skills and service was both professional and friendly. The food was excellent and I would rank this restaurant number 1 from... More
