Good Tapas, friendly owner

We had lunch tapas. The owner helped with the selection and we were served great fried sardines, salted green peppers and more. Fair prices and good value for the money.

As with many Portuguese restaurants, they'll bring starters which you must refuse if you don't want them. Some will cost €10, reason for a few bad reviews from those caught unaware. The food is good but nothing special, service was friendly and it was a good find on a Monday night, when all other places were closed.

Being in the centre of Braga, we didn't expect it to be cheap so, unlike some other reviewers, we felt that we got what we paid for. The food was well-presented and served by a very friendly and attentive waiter. The bread and nibbles came straight away and the bottle of house red we shared was very drinkable. For mains,... More

The board outside the restaurant said that the daily menu consisted of bread and paté, soup, main course, dessert and cafe. The waiter was quite rude and served us like he was doing us a favour. The bread came without any paté, but we ignored that because it wasn't a big deal. The main course was good and the soup... More

We ate there twice, started off with bottle of good wine, then the assorted tapas, 2 sorts of ham (both delicious) and a very good cheese. After that very nice gambas. Friendly staff, good service. This restaurant deserved better reviews. Only one thing, the 3 assorted tapas cost € 10,-- not 13,50 (this is the separate price) so check your... More

Last night in Braga, not a big appetite for a complete dinner, we decided to give this place a try. The food was ok but as soon we sat we were presented a lot of starters, seafood, cheese, ham and other. We only took two of them and then ordered octopus a la plancha (at 12,50 very expensive and with... More

The place is cool, with three different zones (street, garden and inside the building), and the staff is polite and friendly. The food is very good but nothing out of ordinary. As with many locals in Portugal, you must explicitly discard the starters you don't want.

The foog is good and the staff is very nice. I didn't think it was correct to suggest fish saying that it was Easter Friday. Even the catholic church droped that idea years ago!

Good selection of wines, good hams and tapas. A little pricey, but quality comes at a cost.
