Very friendly service lovely food and wine. A Portuguese experience at an inexpensive restaurant. We had passed it at lunch time and it was full. We ate early in the evening and it wasn't full but eating in Portugal is typically later.

This place was recommended to us by our guide on a food tour for Francesinha, Porto's famous meat sandwich, and it was great. It's a small family run place which serves very tasty food and is worth a visit for local dishes.

Every time I go to Porto I have to say that this is my favorite place to have a francesinha. Small, authentic place with authentic owner hidden in the centre of the city!

The place is authentic, friendly and cheap. Great Francesinha with perfect sauce and real fries. Enjoy it with a cold Super Bock and happiness is right at your table. Looking forward to go back to Porto!

Just off the beaten track, down a quite street hides the O Golfinho cafe. You could walk past it if not careful but this tiny cafe is hospitable, welcoming and serves an amazing traditional dish originating from Porto called Francesinha (meaning Little Frenchie or simply...More
