Thank you for your rating. We noticed he rated 3 neighboring restaurants, of which he said two bad, we are not sure if he visited them all the same day. As for the quality and price, we will not even discuss this subject, as we would counteract all the thousands of customers who left here satisfied and many of them... More

Nice environment. We eat "Francesinha", the best in the world they say. To be honest, I didn't like the "linguiça" they've put on it. It was raw. The bread was a little hard after they've put it to burn. Waiters are nice but lacking a smile on their faces. Speaking loudly to each other.

I admit I have not tried many places. But I can tell this one is better than the francesinha in cafe santiago (next door). Staff super friendly. Do not forget to ask for extra sauce!

Nice bar which offers probably the best franchesina in Porto. It's very tender, huge amount and tasty. However I'm not an expert. We have been served by Pedro and he was very nice and friendly.

Me and my sister went to have lunch in this lovely restaurant and it was very good because I could eat the normal Francesinha and she ate the Veg one. Both of Francesinhas were very good. The staff is very nice as well.

Went here for lunch around 1pm on a Monday afternoon as they were closed on Sunday when I tried to go. The place was packed around 1.30pm people were queuing outside. The Francesinha is the best in Porto 😁 and to wash it down have a pineapple Sumol.

Let's be honest, the Francesinha is good. But... not so good as you might find in another places, in my opinion. Anyway, if you're around, fancy to eat one of this traditional Porto dishes and with some time to spare (there is usually a wait here), you can rely on this restaurant for a - not at all disappointment but...

We had the veg Francesinha. It was great! Not what I had expected. I expected it to be sickening to be honest, but this was kinda clean tasting, the sauce was really nice. Not sure if it is because we had the veg version, but it wasn't as sickly as I had imagined. Stout on tap, really clean inside, nice... More

On the advice of our tour guide, my husband and I tried the Portuguese version of the Croque Monsieur. It was very rich and very tasty. Lado B claims to serves the "best Francesinha in the world." Well, I don't know about that, but it was very good, the service was excellent, and the restaurant was clean.

Thank SoniaChan

Betting on the brewery, where the francesinha "crunchy" is assumed as one of the best in the city, also salads, burgers with pineapple, 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.
