Super Good

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.

In top of it, the staff makes you feel like you are at home, always very friendly and nice. Not less important I consider an excelent value for money.... More

Kind of difficult to find a restaurant in Braga in May, many were closed, those which were open were often snackbars, but then we found Velhos Tempos. We enjoyed a very well prepared (grilled) octopus and had a good bottle or wine, and this all for a reasonable price

The food was really good! Best bacalhau (cod) I had in a while, the staff were really friendly and if you want to see how our grandmas house were like in the 90's this is your restaurant!!

If you want a good insight into Portuguese gastronomy, you MUST try this restaurant. As the name stands for, the restaurant has a lovely decor alludes to good old times with unique vintage furniture and tables made of sewing machines. The staff is as delightful as the food and will happily advise you on must tries, but I leave you... More

At this restaurante you can find the traditional Portuguese cuisine at the very best environment. Located in the city center they have a good service and very good food for a good price. You must try it! A very good option.
