We stopped in here at 2:00 and were able to get a table without a wait (it was mobbed next door). We had beers, fries and my husband ordered the Francesinha. Overall, it was tasty - but the beef was pretty tough.

We originally wanted to try the famous francesinha sandwich at Cafe Santiago nearby but the line was too long and we decided to head to Lado B instead after reading some of its reviews online. It was a great decision because the food was decent....More

Very affordable first experience for Francesinha - both Lado B's version as well as the traditional version. Recommend for anyone looking for a more relaxed experience with a reasonable price point.

Very casual affordable place to try a francesinha sandwich. A ton of meat (which I normally don’t eat a lot of but still enjoyed this sandwich) an egg on top and covered in gravy! Definitely comfort food!

Visited Lado B after reading about it online as the place to experience the Francesinha, Porto's equivalent of Teesside's Parmo. Was not disappointed. Great food, good service and reasonably priced- 22.40 euro for Francesinha, chips and beer for two. Cafe is clean and modern with...More

One of the best Francesinha from Porto and I am Portuense I know what I am talking about. Not just the sauce is the secret of Francesinha, also the ingredients that you use and they use te best ones.
