Restaurants in Portugal usually start serving you kinds of tapas like olives, butter, cheese, ham. Be careful because these are not usually free. If you eat any bit of it, you will see it on your bill. If you are served something that you didn’t order and you don’t want, make sure to let them know that you don´t want it (just to avoid any surprises on your bill later).
The following are restaurants we like in Porto:
Porto is well known for Portuguese tapas called Petiscos. In the city, there are some Petiscarias where to enjoy this experience.
Santo Antonio. This petiscaria is one of the most fun experiences in Porto. They ask what you like and start serving petiscos until you say stop! Address: Rua da Fábrica 72-90, Porto
Voltaria. One of the trendy places in Porto for Petiscos. Address: R. Afonso Martins Alho 109, Porto
Flor Dos Congregados. This small restaurant has high-quality cuisine. Local products ad Portuguese dishes. We recommend making a reservation beforehand. Address: Tv. dos Congregados 11, 4000-114 Porto
Franzesinha. The most local sandwich in Porto. A mix of meats, cheese, and port sauce. Really good fast food. The best in Porto are at Brasao Cervejaria, Cafe Santiago, Lado B or A Regaleira.
