O Paparico

Featured on the Michelin Guide, O Paparico serves traditional Portuguese cuisine with a uniquely contemporary touch, accompanied by a rich wine list in a rustic and elegant setting.


The people of Porto managed to acquire the name "tripeiros" or "tripe eaters", as they shipped out all their fine cuts of meat in order to feed their armies and traders abroad, conquering across the seas back in the 15th century. However, today there is a lot more on the Portuguese menus than just leftover offal of lower quality, and much port wine to wash it all down with. Being on the coast, seafood restaurants are both ubiquitous and delicious. The city also has a good array of Brazilian-inspired restaurants, reflecting its former colonial links with the South American country — Brazilian barbecues are a carnivore’s heaven!
