Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

I have eaten at over 20 Michelin 1-3 star places and how 'O paparico' hasn't earned a star yet amazes me. They were fantastic and the execution was great then staff and waiters were on point and the whole experience was grand. We did the Portuguese menu which was a 100 per person (with wine pairing for 50 per person)... More

Fantastic food, delicate and sophisticated - attentive service. Wines were affordable, which is not always a given in such restaurant

We were visiting porto on a wine trip and this was recommended by one of our friends as the best place they'd ever eaten! They weren't wrong!!! When our taxi pulled up, we were convinced we were in the wrong place as it was so residential but the secrecy almost added to the charm. The restaurant is stunning- intimate and... More

In an old converted stable outside of the city, you will find this innocuous restaurant. There are no obvious signs and you have to knock to be let in but once inside, you are greeted by friendly staff in an almost homely environment. A relative had been previously and were keen to try this Michelin recommended restaurant as they had... More

A taxi ride out of the city centre brings you to a very Portuguese restaurant.We had the tasting menu which was a real experinece. Expensive but worth every Euro. The meal was a true experience. Quality food with matching service. Highly recommended.

Great food at O Paparico. Yes it is expensive and it felt a bit pretentious when we got it - mostly due to the weird location, not really in the central tourist area. But food is great, all courses are perfectly executed. Service is friendly and impeccable. Recommended if you fancy a treat.
