The waitress was very patient with us since we had to ask a lot about the menu. I had some real great grilled meat, the others had fish and pulpo. The wine was good, the prices are absolutely ok.

We went on the recommendation of the owner of the hotel we were staying at and we weren't disappointed. We had the bread and the salad to start and then shared a mixed meat grill. No bones, excellent. The sobremesas were very good as well as are the measures of wine by the glass! At least it wasn't far to... More

Me and my partner went there to have dinner and it was the best restaurant during our two weeks trip in Portugal. We ate a lot for a very good Price and everything was delicious, specially bacalhao as natas. By far, the best bacalhao we ate in this great country! Highly recommended

We stopped by here for lunch while in braga for a day and we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and service. This was by far one of the best meals we have had in portugal. We enjoyed the fried bacalhau with fried potato slices and the rice with duck. Both were fantastic. The bacalhau was cooked to... More

We spent a great night at this restaurant with our family. The host/waitress was exceptional and made this meal an experience of history and culture with a cozy atmosphere to match. The food was outstanding -rich with flavor and authentic local cuisine at very reasonable price. The wine was the same. We highly recommend this restaurant and the dessert guessing... More

I go to this restaurant very often. I feel that I'm dining in a cozy museum! The food is very good and the owner is very careful with her customers. Maybe some nice music would be welcomed.

One of the best meals ever. Rice with duck and pine nuts was out of this world delicious and portions are huge. The service is superb and the interior of the restaurant is lovely, comfortable and small enough to feel really private.

This is one of my favorites in Braga. Very traditional place and excellent food. I prefer the upper room, going through the kitchen. Very delicious desserts. Friendly staff. A place to visit. Not good for large groups. An excellent place for couples, friends or even businesses.
