No doubt this 5-year francesinha house stands up to the big traditional Porto competitors. We tried to go to Santiago round the corner, but there was a 40 minutes queue. Thanks to TA, we found this excellent jewel and we were not deceived. To add to the pleasant experience, the service was really above average. The only reason that I don't give 5 stars is the glass of red wine, that was awful. I would definitely come back.

Hello Nelson, we are sorry about the wine, we hope the next time you come we will have one that will answer to your expectations.
One last thing, we are only 5 months old! =D
We hope you come again to Porto and visit us!
Thank you!

We had a great time here. Not only was the food good, but the two English speaking waiters provided a wealth of information and entertainment. My wife had one of the local dishes recommended by the waiter, and I had a really great dessert. I wish I could remember the name of it. It was like a creme brule, but with an ice cream base. Excellent!

Everything positive what you read about this restaurant is true. Delicious food, amazing friendly staff, the prices are excellent. You can really see food is prepared by local people for local people. The taste is FANTASTIC. Strongly recommended, you feel served like a king.

Typical Portugese restaurant which can be very crowdy with local people.
If you are looking for a nice Francesinha; this is the place to be. Nowhere else did they taste that good. The rest of the food is ok but nothing special.
