We went there because people were saying that here is the best Francesinha. So we went there and order it. Service was fast and good. Francesinha was really good i like it and the portion was big. For 2 people was 21€ including drink.

This is traditional portuguese sandwich place which are very good for locals and some tourists. But I'm none one of them for sure. Very fat food and to be honest not the best.

Delicious meal, quite cheap (9,50), we went there round 4pm and there were no queues. Quick service but not nice, the waiter was ignoring us - that is why we're giving 4/5.

This would be the place to get fraceshina in Porto. Be prepared for a long wait for a table, or just takeaway - the fraceshina is great either way!
