“Francesinhas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

A typical food in Oporto made of pork meat sausages and an egg with chips and great spicy sauce. Must do when you come to Oporto. This is the best restaurant in the city where you can eat that kind of food. around 7 euros for each person.

“Great Francesinha and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The Capa Negra II is a traditional Portuguese restaurant. The restaurant is very well known by the locals and tourists, and its excellent service. They have a great selection of steaks but their specialty is the Francesinha, a kind of hot sandwich meal made with bread, sausages, steak, cheese and a spice hot red sauce served with chips. Absolutely delicious. Really recommendable and to very reasonable prices.

“A true Porto culinary experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

If you want to experience dinner out with the people of Porto, go to Capa Negra!! Although it was November I believe we were the only foreigners in this restaurant full with maybe 100 locals. I can't comment on anything but the francheshina but it was awesome. If you are looking to eat what the locals eat, order one. It is more or less a mega grilled cheese sandwich with gravy. Between two pieces of bread you have sausage, ham, veal and (maybe) mortadella. The grilled sandwich is covered with cheese and smothered in a beer based gravy and served with fries. Many locals seem to order it with a fried egg on top. Go to Capa Negra and enjoy and leave your North American expectations at home :-)

“True Francesinha!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The interiors are not the most elegant and cosy of the city...but if you want to eat the real Porto's francesinha this is the right place in the city.
