“For us the best "francesinha"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

We've decided to re-visit Cufra for a francesinha. We've eat some shrimps first (fresh) and the regular francesinha. Spicy but well tasted. The drinks are very expensive (a 200ml coke for 2€). Probably there are best francesinhas in other spots, but will be back for sure. Slow service... Other foods look's very tasty also.

“one of the most famous restaurants to have a "francesinha"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

when you are talking about "francesinhas" (Porto´s traditional dish), this is will be one of the spoken options. There´s also other options, meat or seafood, but Francesinha is what make this restaurant well known, and there´s a few option of Francesinha with different ingredients.

To me, be famous doens´t mean be the best, but for sure you will not be dissapointed.

“Very good for a Francezinha or a "light" meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

This is the place for an evening meal, either a typical Francezinha or a steak (especially the pepper one) or seafood. So instead of a big dinner or before an event such as a football match this is the place to go. Quite traditional food and atmosphere and the staff very friendly. Do not forget in oporto they use different words and meanings from Lisbon and the south. A draft beer in Lisbon is "Imperial" and here is "fino" or "principe".
