Braga is blessed with some very fine restaurants but this was our favourite meal on a recent trip. We were told that the restaurant had closed down a couple of days earlier by one of the locals. Luckily, we spotted that it was open and serving some great food. Portions are enormous, staff are helpful and ultra-friendly, the atmosphere is... More

The best 'bacalhao with nata' ever tested. The place is super tiny but very tipical. The service is also great. Dishes are huge and the bill is quite small.

I had probably the most delicious octopus in my life! The service was second to none and it was an absolute joy to have dinner here. They even offered my to try for free a home-made drink (I cannot recall the name) and also got a present at the end, which was very nice of them :-) Definitely a 5... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the receptionist at the IBIS hotel across the road. The food was outstanding, the portions were generous, and the staff were so attentive and friendly. If you go to one restaurant in Braga, make it this one!!

Very good decor, the menu has variety and quality. The servings are not very large but food is great and the staff very friendly. It's a small restaurant with a family environment.
