The overall ambience is good but the restaurant is very expensive! The restaurant is located out of the city center and it´s not very easy to find. The cuisine is good but the prices are overcharged. In my opinion it's not a good restaurant to go with kids, it's more a kind of couples restaurant.

On August 22 we celebrated our anniversary with a spectacular meal at O Paparico here in Porto. The service, the attention to detail and the quality of the food and the wine were outstanding. As you can see the presentations were eye catching. There was no molecular gastronomy on display here...thank heavens. Just real food, authentically prepared in a way... More

I would give this excellent restaurant 5/5 for the food but our experience was let down by the service . We like to eat early so reserved for 19.30 and knocked on the exciting door were let in and shown to a nice table and we admired the superb decor . We chose the 3 course meal and we're glad... More

Located in a place out of the center, not very easy to find without gps, the restaurant is a beautiful surprise. Top level fine cuisine, the sommelier Sergio (and the other sommelier too) very professional and competent. Tradition and innovation well matched.

Some of the cooking here is excellent and very interesting. It is also served with passion. All the team were knowledgeable and advised well on menu and wine. Unfortunately the night we went something had gone wrong in the kitchen so our food took a very long time to arrive which made it difficult to fully appreciate the potential of... More

We decided to leave the number one restaurant on TripAdvisor for a special occasion and this month we finally managed to visit O Paparico. More than just a dinner, it is a gastronomic experience that is easy to enjoy from the beginning to the end. Reservation is mandatory and don't be scared if you reach the restaurant and you find...

I am so happy to share my feelings about O Paparico. It is the best restaurant we had diner in Portugal. It already have 2 forks at the Michelin guide but it deserve at least 3 forks or even one star. The cuisine is gastronomic, balanced, clever and so good. We have discovered the Portuguese gastronomy there. I want to... More

This is an outstanding restaurant, and easily the best I have visited. Quiet, understated and barely visible from the street, it was the perfect setting to celebrate my dad's 60th birthday as a family. The restaurant owner and staff went out of their way to make it a memorable experience and to help us celebrate it in style. The menu... More
