This is one of my favorite places here. Fantastic food. Don't miss out on this one. Bit of a classier establishment. Get the octopus. So delicious.

The promises were great! But everything lacks refinement. The food was only average. It's a shame. We were expecting way better food. And the price is just too much for this kind of meal. Definitively not a place to go.

A little out-of-the main streets in Guimarães but not as hidden as you will find a very tasty pulp in a familiar ambient. Good cost-benefit choice.

We had a lovely meal in this restaurant - delicious food and excellent service. The restaurant is in Guimaraes' historic centre in Rua de Donaes, a lovely little square not far from Largo da Oliveira. The meal was beautifully cooked and presented and was very good value.

The food was just okay, very average. The prices are far exaggerated, for the same price you pay here, you can get better meals in Guimaraes. The service was awful, the waitress took a long time to take our order and it took far too long to get our food (we waited an hour after ordering), the waitress did excuse... More

Lovely place serving authentic local good food. Beautiful plaza in front in one of the most beautiful Portuguese cities. The area around is full of small bars and other restaurants so worth a visit. Very good service so overall a good experience.

Booked a table for five over the phone while driving. The location is on a n on square, clear and lighted, well conditioned. Servicing people were very helpful, food was great. We were very surprised about the tastefulness of the rice with duck that one of my daughters ordered. Octopus and cod were very good as well. Even the kids... More
