Whenever I go to Porto I always make a point of stopping for a Francesinha at Barcarola... you just cant go wrong! Their Steaks are also very good. The staff have always been very friendly and welcoming.

A very good local cafe, only two minutes from our hotel, with a good range of food. Both an outdoor and indoor seating area were provided. We found it very useful.
