Great little restaurant. Polite and warm service. Very good food. We had soup for starter and the Naco as a main dish. If you are close by it's worth a visit.

For me is one of the best places to try the famous Francesinha! Together with a great and huge glass of sangria, full of fruit! The place is not big, but cozy, and Mr Cardoso and wife (who makes the great Francesinhas) are very nice.

Cozy typical place with delicious francesinha. The portions are huge and the owner is very friendly. Try to save some space for dessert, it's worth it.

Nice Francesinha! Beef was really tender. Nice and cozy ambiance. Pão de ló molhado as dessert is delicious. Definitely will be back.

You won't taste a tender beef... The quality of the ingredients is very good. The owner of the restaurant is very kind, the girl not that much. It's a small place, better to order.

One of the several referenced places to taste the amazing Porto's Francesinha, this restaurant is well located, right in city centre and uses the finest ingredients to make them. However... the sauce needs more consistency (seemed a bit liquid for me) and the place hasn't the typical environment to eat a Francesinha (like a beerspot or an emblematic Cafe). The... More

My wife and I visited Kardoso for diner. The menu was somewhat limited but I knew why I wanted to come to Kardoso: Francesinha. My wife had ribs and fries. The food was OK without being great.
