Time Out says

Prepare to wait (and wait, and wait) in the queue for a seat at Santiago – above all at peak times, that is, lunch and dinner. Is it worth it? Yes, when it’s a matter of eating Porto’s best francesinha, with a balanced sauce with a touch of acidity and slightly spicy; mortadela with greenpepper;goodlinguiça sausage that’s nice and spicy; a slim steak with little fat; lots of cheese melted over it; and an egg on top.

We came here on holiday looking for a great Francesinha and this place didn't disappoint. Hearty and delicious, it came with a mountain of chips and tasty gravy, I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. The service was a bit abrupt and they didn't seem to like tourists, despite it being a place where a lot of tourists go!


Porto is all about searching for the most amazing Francesinha to lock your lips around and I have to say if your journey takes you to Cafe Santiago then you need look no further in my opinion!! It is the perfect combination of meat, bread and of course the famous sauce! 

I recommend this to all my friends who are lucky enough to make it to beautiful Porto - but be warned you will be hooked!
