Best in Porto!

Hard to find, but worth finding. We had an excellent experience and surprisingly good value (compared to London!) £100 for two. The house signature dish of veal fillet was outstanding. Difficult to fault, excellent service, very good wine list

We were a little skeptical of O Paparico based on some of the reviews...but we couldn't have been more pleased with our experience. The food, wine, atmosphere and service were outstanding. Loved the octopus carpaccio and veal with truffle dishes especially!! Unfortunately did not save room for dessert. Do note, that the offer not just half portions, but quarter portions... More

From having to press the buzzer to get in the culinary tour begins. We were greeted by very attentive staff & enjoyed a drink at the bar before sitting down. The restaurant is divided into small rooms so it has a very intimate feel to it. The food was simple & elegant - the octopus carpaccio delicious to get things... More

Perfect combination between Portuguese tradition and sophistication without compromising the flavors we, locals, are familiar with. Top friendly service at fair price.

One of the best tables in Porto and it has been of of the best for a long time. Nothing else to highlight, just the great food. Typical portuguese flavours.

Although a bit of a cab ride from the center of town, the trip is worth it! The service is impeccable and you will find that you have 4 waiters. I ordered the veal with mushrooms and bone marrow and it was absolutely outstanding. My wife had the octopus dish and she found it very tasty as well. Be warned... More
