Very local, away from touristic part, small but really nice place to have francesinha there. It might have to queue a bit, but believe me- it really is worth doing that!

Friendly father and daughter restaurant and a lovely evening. We were guided here by a friend who likes the Portuguese food in Camden Market. The service and our Franchesinas were equally delightful and for us, faultless. Sheila particularly enjoyed the chorizo on the top which...More
