“Amazing ambiance, food, and service”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Went to Porto for a weekend with long-time friends. Based reviews we reserved at O Paparico, which was a wonderfull surprise. Since we were with 7, we were seated in the "private dining room", and were in for a treat. Starting with exceptional service by both the maitre, and sommelier, the treat continued with a variety of starters, tastefull main courses. All accompanied with brilliant wines.

If you are in for dining an evening, O Paparico, is a must have.

“all amazing”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Atmosphere is unique, Food is delicious, Portugese wine selection great and most importantly, Service is courteous, anticipating and frankly friendly. The host (dont remember the name) is one of the most dedicated individuals I have ever seen in his own proper restaurant. Dine here and you won't regret it.

“Exquisite meal”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

The service was discrete, but helpful. The setting was cosy and romantic. And the food was exquisite. The sommelier gave us help in choosing a wonderful Portuguese wine to accompany our meal. A nice touch was that we were adviced to share two main courses in order to be able to try more of what they offer. This worked really well. One course was brought to the table and divided between us. Followed, once we were finished by the next main course.....it felt almost like a tasting menu.......but more substantial. Thank you O Paprico

“What an experience....”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I booked this restaurant for my boyfriend's birthday. From start to finish the evening was fantastic. Superb food, atmosphere and service. We were given a 100 year old port on the house to round the evening off. I would highly recommend this restaurant, one of the best meals we've ever had. This is a restaurant not to be missed.

“Looking forward to going back”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

We celebrated my mother's 75 birthday here. I was hoping for something special and charming, and could have not be more pleased with the outcome.
The place is special, very cozy. Service is elegant, friendly, discreet and very professional. The food is limited to a few dishes, but mastering each and everyone of them. Excellent wine list and a very helpful sommelier.
The experience: a wonderful treat for the senses.
Looking forward to going back. Soon.
