Restaurants in Oporto


(These restaurants are part of a route developed for the Casas do Porto mobile app)

A Tasquinha

In addition to the traditional Portuguese dishes like codfish fritters and sericaia, “A Tasquinha” has other less known dishes like febras de salpicão and octopus fillets.

Located near the Faculty of Arts of Porto, the restaurant has a wine menu to suit all tastes and a team that is always at your disposal to help you decide!


The restaurant “Book” ocupies the site of the former Aviz bookshop and still maintains some of its original decoration.

The chef João Mendes is behind the concept of the restaurant inspired by Mediterranean cuisine.

Choose one of the cocktails named after writers from the past, read a book from the shelf or practise your dance moves to the sound of the home DJ, “Book” has all of this and more!

Cantina 32

Located in Rua das Flores, this restaurant is run by chef Luís Américo.

A rustic and alternative space, Cantina 32 offers a little bit of everything, from small snacks to full meals.

The desserts are to die for, the cheesecake for example is easily confused with a plant in a vessel!

Casa Aleixo

Having gone through several generations, this family restaurant  is already a part of Porto’s history.

Casa Aleixo is located next to the Campanhã station and it’s famous for its octopus fillets.

A mandatory stop for anyone who likes good food!

Casa das Mariquinhas

Established in 1968, Casa das Mariquinhas was Porto’s first fado house!

During the afternoon or at dinner time you can enjoy your meal to the sound of this traditional Portuguese music.

Taste the Mariquinhas codfish or beef, two specialities of the restaurant curated by the chef Sandra Santos.

Casa Guedes

When visiting Casa Guedes make sure you try their ham sandwich!

The Guedes brothers are behind this restaurant that has really affordable prices, whether you go for a snack or lunch.

Don’t forget to ask for a glass of Baião green wine to go along with your meal!

Clérigos Vinho & Petiscos

Located in downtown Porto, Clérigos features a combination of wine and snacks which can be ordered at any time of the day!

In 2013 Pedro Lemos created this restaurant as a living and tasting space.

Aside from the snacks, don’t miss the dishes cooked inside the coal oven!


Opened in 1974, Cufra is slightly off the city center but that doesn’t mean it has fewer customers!

Following the Porto tradition, the restaurant serves Francesinhas but also other dishes like the Cufra codfish.

Here there’s a Francesinha party every day!

Jimão Tapas & Vinhos

Jimão offers tapas with a touch of fusion!

Located in the historic center of Porto, the restaurant features a variety of tapas ranging from the melon and prawn salad to the potato tortilla.

Jimão’s dishes do not lack creativity!

O Fado

This Fado house is a reference in Porto.

Open every day except on Sundays, you can hear the Fado from 8:30PM.

In addition to the traditional Portuguese food, the restaurant also serves wines from different regions of the country.

O Paparico

A rustic and cozy space, Paparico is known for its grilled dishes.

After working in the hospitality industry abroad, the young Sergio Cambas decided to settle in Porto and he was lucky that the original owners of the restaurant Paparico were looking for someone to pierce this space.

Currently the restaurant is only open for dinner and serves doses that encourage sharing!
