“Birthday treat ”
Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

I make no apologies for having both experience as a chef - a restaurant owner and a hotelier plus - travelled and eaten at some of the best places in the world - so that doesn't make me a 'smarty pants' but it does provide a lot of experience to make objective comparisons with.

Food - service - ambience - facilities - all 5 stars - miss it and you missed out

There endeth the lesson :-)

“Wonderful dining experience”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Although situated quite a long way out of the town centre it is easily accessible by taxi at a cost of only 6 euros - the restaurant is unnamed and you need to knock on the door for entry . The service was excellent and we were well looked after - the whole experience was very special - you are expected to order your main meal for two people but this was not a problem for us and the monk fish and prawn rice was delicious - the cover is quite expensive but worthwhile we enjoyed octopus carpaccio amongst other delicacies- they also have an excellent selection of gin and tonic - very popular restaurant do male sure you booked ahead

“As soon as you enter the front door you will be amazed!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

The restaurant is like going back in time with the stone walls and antique fixtures. The staff was very friendly, the sommelier knowledgeable and the food amazing. The only problem is it may be difficult to get a table. The first night we wanted was fully booked but they fit us in the next night. It was great to arrive at your table with some light appetizers ready to snack on. We shared the Rib Eye and Pork and everything was perfect. can't wait to go back :)

“LAhrne”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We were four adults having dinner at this cosy restaurant last night. Dinner consisted of a range of Portuguese specialities, including "bacalau" and "polvo", goat butter, duck liver terrine, pork fillet and grilled veal etc. Everything was very well prepared an presented. The food was surprisingly low priced for this excellent quality. We drank excellent Portuguese wines recommended by the restaurant. The combination made this a memorable evening. Note, the restaurant is located off the city center, but it is worth taking the trouble getting there.

“You will get addicted...”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Paparico is sort of hidden in the suburban outskirts of Porto... If you are not familiar with the area, take a cab or make sure your GPS is working before you attempt to drive there. Don't expect a big sign and grand entrance... look for a door with a knocker at the address you will get when you make reservations. The warm welcome, the impeccable service and the delicious food will certainly make you addicted to this place. For wine lovers the place is a paradise. For whisky and malt lovers, an extensive collection... Overall one of the best, if not the best, dining experiences in my life!
