Francesinha is a local dish, with many kinds of meat. Lado B is known for the amazing francesinha they serve, and we had a blast tasting it! We were surprised to see that everybody in the restaurant ordered the same thing! Highly recommended

I tried so many Francesinha sandwiches in Porto. This was hands down the best sauce of any of them. They would get a perfect review but the fries were soggy. Good beer selection. Very fast service.

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, Nortada, Chimay, Franziskaner and Erdinger.
