- The restaurant looks great inside. The music selection was not a great for setting the mood and should have reflected the cultural imprint the restaurant is trying to recreate.

- The food was overpriced and the only thing the Francesinha had inside was steak and white cheese. That is NOT how you make a Francesinha. I am from Porto and was expecting way more from this restaurant.

- The service was slow. We had to ask several times the same thing to different waiters so we could finally get what we needed. This ranged for more beer to francesinha sauce and even the final bill. After the final bill came we had to wait so long that we just got up and went straight to the cashier...

For the price we had to pay the experience we got was really average. There are several other options in Porto that serve better for less money and the environment looks as classy as Brasão.

We stayed one night at Porto. All recommendations pointed to try Francesinha. We went to Brasao Cervajaria Aliados. Between the four of us, we had two jars of Sangria Tinta, Cebola Fritas with Black mayonnaise sauce and finished off with the local favorite Francesinha com Ovo.
It was an awesome evening with great atmosphere and excellent service and amazing food. You should visit this place for sure, if you are in Porto, I would highly recommend it.
Our evening got better when Porto became Portugal champion in Football that evening by default and we participated in celebrations right into the night. We would never forget this night!

We arrived on Sunday night without a reservation after our guide suggested this place.
Even though all the tables were booked and the place was packed, the hostess was very nice and helpful, told us which tables were about to finish, and tried to call the people who have made reservations but have not shown up.
We waited for about half an hour and then were seated.

The waiter was nice and helpful. All the dishes were excellent. We had the fillet steak, the Franchesinhia (not sure about the spelling), and the eggplant "steak", all were very good, especially the steak.

Deserts were also very good, had the lemon cake and chocolate mousse.

All in all we had a great evening, the atmosphere was nice, and the prices are fair and reasonable.

Would definitely come back
