I and my friends visited this restaurant on April 6,2019 after we just arrived in Porto. We didn’t plan on coming to this horrible place if it’s not raining. We were greeted by a grumpy staff who seem to be unhappy and hate her own job. There are two staff on the second floor. One is slim and very smiley, the other is big and she is grumpy.

I highly recommend everyone to avoid this place not only because of the bad service and bad attitude from this staff but the food is also not a restaurant standard. The chip was raw and my pork steak was really bad. All of us couldn’t finish our own dish.
Please stay away for your own sake.

Came here for a late lunch with the Missus on afternoon after wandering the city centre, and found this to very decent and reasonably priced for a restaurant placed in Liberdade Square. We both had the Francesinha Sandwich which is Porto's signature dish which were pretty big and packed full of various meats etc and very tasty. With a portion of chips (served coldish which seems to be a recurring theme in Porto) and a couple of beers and a coffee thrown in cost only 25 Euro all in. Not bad at all for a restaurant placed in the corner of the main square with great views. Can have no complaints about the service either as the waiters were very friendly etc. Definitely worth a visit if your in the main square of Porto. Just ask for your chips to be warm though.

This restaurant has a lovely location where you can sit on the patio and watch the Liberdade Square. The food was very reasonably priced and they had great wine! Highly recommend the Francehina!

It was pretty chilly and the heaters were off, the food was OK but took too long to arrive and the french fries were cold. The staff were friendly and given its central location, the price of the meal wasn't too high - we even received a free glass of port. I feel slightly guilty giving it an average mark but given the high quality of food and service we received in other restaurants, anything higher would be unfair to those.
