On our first night we went to Papavinhos for dinner. The service very friendly and chatty. There were mostly tourists in the restaurant and we were given a lot of good information. I had grilled octopus which was delicious.

If you are in Porto, don't miss out this cosy and friendly restaurant. The owner himself had arranged for our extra takeaway (and homemade by his lovely mother herself!) desserts and attended to all our needs. The meals weren't drowned in an excessive amount of...More
