We had grilled fish, breaded fish, chicken and a special sausage chicken with dessert of chocolate mouse. Delightful and clean flavors! The owner was very kind. This is along the river. Our Blue Dragon segway tour recommended this and it was the best meal we had!

Really friendly food at affordable prices on edge of Porto town just along the road beyond the old customs house. It was recommended to us and we went for lunch. The menu had a good choice of dishes and an extensive wine list. As we were only doing lunch, we kept it simple and had fish from the menu of the day. The food was really tasty and the portions were good. A great place to go to taste real Portuguese food away from the tourist traps.

Ambiente familiar, comido tradicional, qualidade sensacional! Um sitio onde pode ir sem qualquer tipo de receio.

Fantastic place to go if your visiting Porto. Just a few meter away of Alfandega, very close to Ribeira. Here you can eat traditional portuguese food without any inconvenients. You will be received as part of the family! Don't miss it!

On the Rue de Monchique near a tire shop, across from Customs House ("Alfandega") and the river. Sangria is good as were the garlic prawns and grilled local fish. Owner very welcoming even with early arrivals unannounced for dinner Very authentic away from the tourist strip.

Had a really nice time at Papavinhos! As great fans of 'portuguese cousine' we enjoyed a wonderful "Bacalhau com Broa" (Breaded Cod) with 'Batatas ao Murro' and 'grelos' (regional 'spring greens'). Ask for it and you will not be disappointed. The owners take care of the quality. The house green wine was a good choice and the homemade dessert was to die for - "Delicia de Biscoito". When we finished lunching we enjoyed 10 minutes chatting with the owner, very helpful and full of good places to recommend in Porto.
Definitely will be back to Papavinhos in a near future.
