Friendly father and daughter restaurant and a lovely evening. We were guided here by a friend who likes the Portuguese food in Camden Market. The service and our Franchesinas were equally delightful and for us, faultless. Sheila particularly enjoyed the chorizo on the top which...More

This is obviously where the locals go to het their francesinhas! I haven't tasted a lot of them to know if it the best one in Portugal, but I can testify that it was delicious! The service was great too, making you feel mostly welcome.

We stayed about a two minute walk from BufeteFase, the only thing that stopped us from eating there more often was that it was among the more pricey options for Francesina. 11.50 euro for a Francesina with fries and a beer.

They only serve Fransesinha (with or without chips) - so dont expect any other type of food. We have had fransesinha elsewhere and thought we'd try it here. Sorry but the food was pretty tasteless, the sauce very watery. Service is fast and staff very...More

The francesinha is amazing, the lady serving them is wonderful and friendly (and speaks good English), the beer is cold, the atmosphere is pleasant (and a bit local). What more do you need?
