We went there because of a friend's suggestion, and she was right, Franzesinha Café has one of the best Franzesinhas in Porto, really fast service, nice waiters. Worth a try!

I tried francesinha in multiple places in Porto, but this one for sure had the best one. Not sure what people expect from this dish; it's not fine dinning, but it's worth trying.

Went there to try out the well-talked Francesinha of Porto, and tried to vegan version of it. It was interesting how it was made, and tasted fine! The place itself wasn't that cozy, but seemed very popular to try out the popular dish. Be ready...More

Not worth the trip here! Food was terrible service was worse. We got the local sandwich, a cheese sandwich, and a lamb with french fries... They were all very disappointing

A very cozy atmosphere for a delicious Francesinha. Even if the place is not so big, it worth wait to try their francesinha. The meat is very good and the sauce spicy but soft. Owners and waiters are always happy and polite. In addition, I...More
