One of the best francesinha you can find in Portugal. The sauce is superb. The french fries are nice and crunchy. Can't wait to go back.

Me and my partner picked this place knowing nothing about it. The place itself it's nothing special but we saw this cue outside to go in and we thought to give it a try. Haven't regret it at all: I had the delicious alheira and...More

Ridiculous service, one beer and one wine 20mins. If it weren't for location and a deep fryer they would be out of business.

It is simple but great, and every time I crave for that steak sandwich topped off with an egg, I order it there. The waiters are always busy, but on point and friendly.

This is one of the historical coffee of the city.Well placed, in front of the beach in "Passeio Alegre".For me,this is the best place to eat the famous "francesinha poveira". They have many other options.

I have been having lunch and dinner here for many times while on business trips. Good and honest food and very (amazingly) affordable. Make friends with the waiters and you will get everything you need, and you will have a very pleasant time.

Is one of the best place in Town where you can eat "Francesinha". One of the best sauce of all Portugal. Theu have a small snack menu, but i guarantee everything is good and home made.

Great place to go, specially on Summer .Good and cheap food, just near the beach. With some nightclubs nearby, it makes it a great place to have a summer dinner before going to the party.
