Brasão is a success story in Porto because it is one of the few restaurants to compete on quality in snacks, offering hardcore ‘francesinha’ sandwiches (with lighter options available) and rump or sirloin steaks. There’s an amazing decoration allied to a quality meal, which is the perfect combination of a well-spent evening.

Museu d’Avó, or “grandma’s museum” is a restaurant with a decoration that bring us back to the beginning of the 20th century, with old objects hanged on the walls and ceiling. The food is served by the candle light and the environment is warm and cozy. The sympathy of the staff and the delicious food makes us feel at home.
