I can't say it was the best francesinha in my life just because it was my first time with that meal. It was very good and so much filling. I also tried vegetarian version which my girlfriend ordered and I can't decide which one was better. It is very recommendable experience. It was worth spending 20 minutes in the queue... More

I went to the Taberna Belga and I have to admit that, despite of having to wait the queue for a while, we expected to wait like 30-40 minutes but it wasn't that long, in fact I think we waited 15 minutes maximum, and there was a waiter outside the restaurant to take down some notes about who's next and...

Best francesinha I have tried, even compared with the best in Oporto. Amazing, slightly spicy sauce, a lot of cheese and very good and abundant meet. The service was good, and they served us lunch after 3 p.m. on a weekday.

This restaurant is well-known in this city (Braga, Portugal) which they have two branches available for customers. Two branches are located in almost the same place that is connected to each other with a distance by walking about 5 min. The typical menu "Francesinha" is recommended to taste it and also many kinds of beer, especially Belgian beer) are favorable... More

We had francesinia with our friends. Very good local food. Only minus is that we had to wait about 10 min for table and then about 20 min for food. But worth it.

I totally recommend this place. It is full of people, so you must wait a little bit but it is totally ok for what you get.

I had seen this place when I was planning our trip to Portugal and we had the opportunity to stop in here. At 2:00 in the afternoon the place was packed (and it is a large place) with locals and the Francesinhas were flying non stop out of the kitchen. We waited about 10 minutes for a table, but once...
