Well, I never had francesinhas before, and since I was first time to Porto, i had to give it a go. We entered O Afonso 15 minutes before closing time, and hoped we wont be kicked out :)) we were actually quickly seated and served....More

Avoid at all cost. The Francesinha is small and very expensive, the sauce has a weird flavour, tastes too much to liquor. They serve 1,5 lt bottle cola in a glass and you pay 1,70€ for that. The ingredients of the Francesinha including the French...More

I've been eating Francesinhas in this place for about 15 years because they're the best I've ever known. I don't even need an American Chef to tell me that... But, well... good thing he also recognized it! Long live Afonso!

These place became more famous after Anthony Bourdain's visit. The waitress assume that you are going to eat Francesinha with homemade fries. They only ask two questions if you want egg on top of your francesinha and what you want for drink. All the meat...More

On the day i arrived i walked down to O Afonso. Purely local people inside. Sat at the bar. Ordered a beer and francesinha. Loved it, Spicey, meaty, cheesy... everything that is good in life is inside it.
