It was just amazing. The place, the decoration, the service, the bar... It's like another reality. And then dinner happens. And its unbelievable. The food is so tradicional but yet so modern. I have become a fan of Paparico. And it will be difficult to dinner anywhere else in Porto..

Go eat here before it turns up on some New York Times or Travel & Leisure Top 10 list and you can't get in. I would put this in the same category as The Three Chimneys on Skye, which is in the New York Times and for which you do have to reserve months in advance. The food is a... More

We booked a table by mail before leaving to Porto. When we entered they remembered my bday. Although I know it is a little one, it is a very nice thing. We first had a glass of white sparkling porto wine in the salon with some delicious bread sticks. At the table we got 3 little starters. They were a... More

My husband and myself celebrated our Silver Wedding Anniversary here. Absolutely fabulous from start to finish. We didn't book as we are on holiday and just opted for this restaurant having searched Tripadvisor and consequently only got in because a couple didn't turn up. The owner and staff are fantastic, knowledgeable, charming and make you feel welcome and comfortable. When... More

Went here on the strength of other TA reviews, and were not disappointed. I can't think of a more committed and professional group of serving staff. All bouncing skilfully between tables and languages. And then there's the food. A range of starters were on the table when we arrived - octopus, veal terrine and cheese. We had the veal for... More

There is no debate this restaurant has paid a lot of attention to detail and it's evident in the experience we had. The food was wonderful, ambient setting was appreciated and the service was as one could expect from a number 1. I had concerns when our driver dropped us at the door but on entry, what a contrast, a... More

Having read all the reviews we booked a table for 3 and we were all very happy with our choice. The food was delicious and although the dishes are made for 2 sharing, they ensured there was enough for 3. The service was impeccable and the tables are spaced far enough apart to have a conversation without feeling others were... More

There is a reason (actually quite a few) why this restaurant is number 1 on Trip Advisor. It really does take some beating on all fronts: service, food, ambiance. My husband and I ate here whilst visiting Porto and it really was a special evening. The quirkiness of having to knock on the door to enter was great, as was... More

Went to this restaurant and it lived up to the comments. Service is out of this world and you are presently surprised as soon as you knock on the door. Bit expensive but definitely worth it.
