The restaurant is not not exactly in the town center but certainly worth a journey. Food and selection of wine is excellent. What we like most is actually pairing of wines with food as recommended by the staff. Although a bit on expensive side, this was an excellent experience. My summary would be: One pays a bit but one gets... More

Our whole table cannot say enough about this place. The food and service were impeccable. Each course is timed out so it will be a 3-4 hours of pure bliss.

We went here for my boyfriends birthday and were amazed at the quality of food and service. Let's first begin with the gin and tonic.....after ordering, the sommelier came up to ask us questions regarding our G&T preferences, we told him to surprise us with 2 different styles and both were superb! We opted for the wine pairings with our... More

My wife and I took a taxi to O Paparico from our hotel (as others have commented it is in the suburbs of Oporto) and found a magical experience unfold before us. The service was impeccable but very friendly and the food was well up to Michelin starred standards: quite why the restaurant has not been so rated is baffling,... More

First of all, this is not traditional portuguese, it's pricey and, for the me worst, pretentious. When you book on the website, they don't state they only have a tasting menu which means minimum 75€/person. When we got there and were surprised with this, I honestly felt like leaving straightaway. The food is not that good for the price and... More

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Porto. The cab driver was very helpful in telling us which door to knock on as the doors remain locked (look for the ornate little knocker). The interiors are traditional and very cozy. The service is excellent. The tasting menus offer A LOT of food. We chose the four... More

My first visit was in 2010. Now, O Paparico is even better. No more à la carte. Only 3 menu options. We chose a three course menu. Before the first dish, they served 3 amuse-bouches: gazpacho, mussels and liver paté with a slice of a sort of ham. Then, the menu: 1º) Bonito (a fish) with salad; 2º) Calf in... More

The classical selection of starter, main course, dessert for 75 euro with wine pairing for 35 turned into a 3-hr gastronomic delight full of surprises. We absolutely loved it, every course was not only original but delicious as well. A real bargain for 110 euro per person, visit by all means!

We spent our first night in Porto here, and chose the restaurant based on the fantastic reviews. We were not disappointed, and this turned out to be the best meal we had during our trip. The service, food and ambiance were just wonderful - and there were plenty of surprises. Have the egg...it is brilliant! We couldn't have chosen a... More
