The waitress messed up with my dish, so that everyone else in the restaurant got their orders before me, eaven after I told my dish is forgotten. My friend had almost finished his meal before I got mine.

If you are vegetarian and want to try a vegetarian version of the classic Porto francesinha dish (which typically has three different types of meat), then Lado B is a good option, as there are not many places that serve a vegetarian version in Porto....More

If you're in Porto, you have to try a francesinha (although don't plan too many activities afterwards as you'll be feeling like you don't need to eat for a week). Lado B does a great francesinha!

Nice environment. We eat "Francesinha", the best in the world they say. To be honest, I didn't like the "linguiça" they've put on it. It was raw. The bread was a little hard after they've put it to burn. Waiters are nice but lacking a...More

I admit I have not tried many places. But I can tell this one is better than the francesinha in cafe santiago (next door). Staff super friendly. Do not forget to ask for extra sauce!

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, Chimay, Franziskaner and Erdinger.
