We had for 11€ one francesinha, one beer and some French fries. It was very delicious! The whole dish is enough for 2 people ;)

Went there early as I read there would be a lineup. There was. It's a cool place to try out the classic Porto dish Francesinha and to visit a different part of town. It's also kind of cool to feel like you're part of a secret handshake club. Recommended!

The best francesinha of Porto. The place is tiny, not too many tables, but it has a very familiar atmosphere. And the francesinha is the best of the best!

This is simply one of the best francesinhas you can find anywhere. If you live in Porto or if you're just visiting don't miss it.

I went to this restaurant in March 2014 with my friends, one of them from Porto. He insisted that this place has the best Francesinha and that we could not left without this experience. The line to dinner seemed to have no end but in the end, the service, the atmosphere and flavor of the dish offset a lot! Do... More

I Know this place for many years, it´s a true place made by Oporto people. The most famous dish is "francesinha" and it´s a winner plate. Today it has more tables because until 2013 there was only 4 tables! But you should get there early because it´s very small with only 2-3 waiters, cook included! Dont miss it.

Excellent typic combination of bread, meat, cheese and spicy sauce called “Francezinha” (inspired in croquet monsieur, the name is like “small French”) and one of the best restaurant downtown is “Bufete Fase”. There is a non spicy version!

For 2 years I listened this was the best francesinha in Porto, so I finally went there last week. We were lucky, we thought, only had 3 people in front of us. Waited almost an hour after seated for our food. The francesinhas are good, but not THAT good. Our clothes stink after being there to fries and fried food.... More

The best francesinha in porto. Ingridientes top quality the sauce it's the best and the waiters are very nice. The problem is that it is a small place, that means it's the same persone doing all te francesinhas so the quality it's like home made. But expect huge lines everyday after 20:30! So go there early!!!

Though small, it serves the best francesinha in town and probably the world. Don't get scared by the crowd at the door, it's only a reflection of what you'll eat :)
