One of the dishes I came to Portugal to try! I loved it of course. The beer selection was pretty good as well. They were not busy at all when we arrived either.

Disappointment is the key word. 70 min waiting outside the restaurant to get in, even though there were free tables, the manager watched soccer very unfriendly and impolite stuff and the sandwich was just ok, nothing special not recommendedMore

The only set back is the time you need to wait sometimes, it's understandable, everybody wants the best. Regarding the waiters, you have lots of them, our last one was a nice guy, a goodfella ;)

We came here specifically to try the vegetarian Francesinha and weren't disappointed. The staff spoke excellent English and we're really friendly. Service was quick and the meal delicious. Totally recommend. Thank you for allowing us veggies to try this Porto classic! Will definitely visit again!!

Francesinha is a local dish, with many kinds of meat. Lado B is known for the amazing francesinha they serve, and we had a blast tasting it! We were surprised to see that everybody in the restaurant ordered the same thing! Highly recommended

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, Nortada, Chimay, Franziskaner and Erdinger.
