A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

With a very rustic and meticulous environment, Paparico is one of the most famous restaurants in Porto, where it is possible to taste the brilliant combination between its atmosphere and the gastronomic wonders that are prepared here.

Paparico presents a cuisine influenced by the traditional Portuguese comfort cuisine and based on four creative pillars: territory, product, recipe and culture, born by the hands of Chef Rui Martins and his team, a bold, innovative and creative combination that travels our country from North to South. Carefully selected to accompany each dish, you can also count on the suggestions for harmonization of Sommelier Rui Costa, who bears in mind the different portuguese regions.


Having nature as a product and Portugality as a pillar, the creations à lá Carte change every month. The Wine Pairing follows the four gastronomic pillars and represent our territory from North to South. Portugal is served at table!

    O Paparico is the right restaurant if you are looking for a unique experience. Beyond the extreme well selected and prepared menu you can have a wine harmonization with some exclusive wines. The service is another highlight, Rui, Pedro and all the team are fabulous.

    O Way over priced....84 euros for a steak. 38 euros for a clam starter...didn't expect Michelin star prices for a non Michelin star restaurant.

    Pretentious. Without having the excellent cooking to live up to it. They offer three expensive mystery menus: 10 courses, seven courses or vegetarian, and wines to accompany the each course at an additional price. Each course is brought with great fanfare, and you're served one small class of the accompanying wine. Two of our seven courses were delicious the others were just okay. The rhythm of service is very slow.

    What a truly wonderful and unique experience, not just in Porto, but nearly anywhere, The creativity of the food is only surpassed by its deliciousness. The wine selection is a fantastic representation of Portugal, The cocktails are innovative and equally tasty. And most of all, the service is outstanding. The team here has created a relaxed and fun atmosphere which further enhances the whole experience. It’s hard to sum up all that O Paparico offers other than it reflects so much of what makes Portugal, Porto and its people so special and is a must for any visit.

    We loved this restaurant. Such wonderful friendly staff with a great sense of humour and the food and wine was delicious. A very special place and the port wine chocolates and menu to take home was a lovely way to end a great evening.

    I was so honored that I can have a chance to enjoy this lovely moment in Porto. The foods were so tasty and wonderful. All the employees were kind and sweet. It took several hours to finish the meal, but I was about to cry for happiness.

    We went on a anniversary romantic dinner, and we simply loved it. Excellent service and very attentive staff. Really deserves a Michelin star, since there are ones that have one (and more), and, in mine opinion, simply don't deserve it. Thanks for the excellent experience.

    I found this restaurant on tripadvisor and going by the reviews I knew it was going to be good but didn't realise it was going to be such a great dining experience. From the moment they opened the door it was fabulous.
