We tried here for the first time the famous Francesinha. It was very good. One portion was enough for 2 girls :). About the other meals I cannot say.
The serving was very nice and very fast.
We enjoyed our choice.
Thank you, Cafe Santiago.
They say you'll love it or hate it...well I tried the francesinha. Not my thing but according to my husband, that was tasty and so was the cachorro, other Portuguese speciality. Cheap enough, especially when you consider the quantity. Service is alright, cantine style so...don't expect a smile. Good luck!More
Our expectations regarding their famous franceshina were not met. We know the franceshina is not healthy food, but we were expecting to enjoy the “junk food quality” and we didn’t. We had better franceshinas elsewhere in Porto.
The service was pretty quick despite the amount...of people queuing.
Overall, an overrated experience.More
Close to the Bolhão Market(temporary located at the La Vie shopping centre underground floor, highly recommended) you could enjoy one of the typical Porto dishes(sandwiches)caled francesinha, with fine meat and delicious.If you like beer, the Gold edition of Super Bock, Abadia is the best option....I hope you will enjoy as much as we did. The service is impeccable.More
My Uber driver told me about the Francesinha, a sandwich unique to Porto, and apparently the best was to be had at Cafe Santiago. If you like things like Philly cheese steak or poutine, this is the place for you. The Francesinha is unapologetically simple...and basic - a stack of bread, mortadella, steak, sausages, ham, cheese, another slice of bread, a fried egg an the resulting tower then clad in more cheese, surrounded on by fries doused in a mildly spicy gravy. Best had with a few beers and some chili oil, available if you ask. I wanted to start my meal with three bolinhas de bacelhau - but my server recommended I stick to one. That was good advice, it was delicious but quite big, especially considering the impending Francesinha. I cannot say whether it is the best in Porto - it probably is not the healthiest idea to go compare the offerings of all Francesinha cafe's in Porto - but it was very good.More
