I recommend 100%! Great place. Nice staff. Service is fast and profissional. But most importantly the best vegetarian francesinha that i tasted so far!

We came here for the Francesinha, which for an American, was really just whatever. I don't understand the hype over this sandwich. I guess the history is interesting? It's just a sandwich with a bunch of meats in it and covered in cheese and a sauce that lacks flavor. The good thing about Lado B Cafe though, was the service.... More

this has to be the best service in town:-) It's a really busy place but everyone who works here is extremely nice and polite. I would be stressed out of my mind working here but these guys keep their cool and their class!

This place has it's own Francesinha recipe giving the Portuguese classic just something different. It's pretty hard to choose between the classic or this one but if you can, just try both! It isn't award winning for nothing.

The francesinha is good (maybe a bit expensive) and they are very quick to serve. But the waiter in charge of managing people waiting outside the restaurant is really rude, especially with strangers.

I've eaten here twice now. And it does not disappoint. Their Francesinha is definitely one of the best, if not the one (tastes differ, so take that into account). I ordered one without cheese due to stomach problems, and they not only removed it, but they also replaced it with ham. The staff seemed a bit distracted and miswrote our... More

Is not the best Francesinha on the world but it is good enough to justify the visit. The restaurant and service is great. If you're around the area and you need a place to eat this is a bery good option. The space is renewed and the francesinha it's very good. You have other options in the menu with aceptable... More

The Best "Francesinha" in the world is a true statement. All over downtown Porto we saw the ads and true to their word. There is a traditional and a vegetarian option and although different both are great! ask for the free egg on top. A must if you happen to be in Porto. It is in an unpretentious cafe downtown...

Betting on the brewery, where the francesinha "crunchy" is assumed as one of the best in the city, also salads, burgers with pineapple, crepes and even The Best Chocolate Cake in the World, already make the delight of the patrons. At the bar will parade the caipirinhas, the long-drinks, the mojitos, a varied selection of gins, sangria and beer and foreign, especially the popular Super Bock, Chimay, Franziskaner and Erdinger.
