We went here for late lunch and the service was really good. We ordered the vegetarian Francesinha, it was so heavy that I had to split it with my husband. It was delicious with cheesy beer sauce and the egg on top.

It took 40 minutes from ordering for our food to arrive. The waiters were pretty abrupt and the manager rude. That said, the food was brilliant. Maybe one for off peak hours!

Having read about the famous Franceshina Lado B really surpassed all expectations. A dangerously good eating experience all round and something you cannot leave Porto without trying.

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.
