“Restaurante Irmãos Linos” The Linos Brothers Restaurant is a traditional restaurant with a long history in the city of Porto, this establishment has existed for 45 years and has had three different owners. The last owners have been running the place for 14 years, but as the name suggests the original owners were the Brothers Linos. The original sign is still fixed on the front of the restaurant.
The specialities here are the daily specials which are always publicized on a chalk board at the door. My favourites are the “Cozido a Portuguesa” selection of boiled meats, vegetables, potatoes and rice, you should ask for chili oil called “piri piri” and olive oil to accompany this dish. “Tripas a Moda do Porto” Tripe made the Porto Way which is served in a bean stew, tripe, chorizo, blood sausage and accompanied by rice. For dessert the “toucinho do ceu” is very good, it originated from Portuguese convents and it consists of egg yolks, sugar and pumpkin jam. The price of a meal for two including starters, the main meal, drinks and coffee is from 15-20 euros.
The restaurant sits on a pedestrian street called “Rua Das Flores” The Flower Street, this street has recently been changed so that it is pedestrian only and links “Ribeira” to the centre of Porto. Along this street you will find several traditional grocery shops, book stores, cafés and a beautiful gothic looking church called “Igreja da Misericórdia” as well as some new restaurants and shops that opened recently. If you are in “Ribeira” and wish to go to the centre of Porto or vice-versa it is a nice walk.
