This is a tiny place in a corner of the Poveiro's Square, a 100m distance from the Coliseu. It's famous for its pork and goat cheese sandwiches, a plain yet surprisingly good treat you'll want to repeat every chance you get! There are other sandwiches and daily specials, as well as a diversity of regional cheeses and smoked meats. It's... More

Accompanied by a great white wine, pork sandwiches from Casa Guedes are a required point on a trip to Porto! The price is affordable, the service is excellent and the food delicious!

This place is very popular with the locals. Friendly atmosphere. If you like to try different things then I would highly recommend... More

We found this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon and loved the pork sandwiches so much we returned the same evening for more and was surprised with the long queue at 9pm! We did not realise how popular this place is with the locals. The food was cheap (€2.75 for basic pork sandwich, €1 extra for cheese), we also tried their... More

For something informal, tipic and cheap i choose Casa Guedes at Praça dos Poveiros. Eat bread with meat called “Sandes de Pernil”, choose “tabua de queijos Portugueses” national cheese and ham.

One of Porto's most iconic restaurants, great for portuguese traditional snacks, such as papas de sarrabulho (pork blood soup), and ham sandwiches. But the signature snack is a pork leg sandwich with Serra da Estrela Cheese - definily reccomend to try it out. One the downside, there's always a large queue that reaches outside, and the space is cramped up.... More

Simple café in Bolhao district. The striking feature is a couple of huge roast pork joints sitting warm in their juices on the counter, from which a generous portion is cut and placed into wonderful Portuguese bread with juices and optional local soft cheese. Magnificent, tasty and filling, washed down with a couple of glasses of good house wine all... More

They have a good pork sandwich, not delicious in my opinion, but good. And it's very cheap, no doubt about that. The service though is rather weak. I told the waiter not to put prok skin in my sandwich, and it was as if I had not said a thing!!
