Wonderful dinner with typical Portuguese dishes in a very nice place . Very good prices, from 8 to 12 euros for the main dish and 3 for the appetizers .

Loved the decoration, like an old Portuguese granite house, with old pictures of Braga in the early 1900s and many farm-like instruments hanging on walls. We had pork with clams, it was so seasoned that you barely could taste the meat, so this was a letdown. However, a friend had cod with broa (portuguese corn bread) and it was great,... More

We had great expectations from the tripadvisor reviews, but this was misleading. Maybe we made the mistake to take the recommended bacalhau con natas and arroz de pato, but these were both quite bad. The bacalhau had at best traces of fish and the arroz appears to have been around some time, heavy, greasy and not much of an interesting... More

Had dinner here with the family, cheap but food was good. Restaurant itself has a nice ambiance, especially the small vespa collection at the front entrance. Friendly staff!

I've been to Velhos Tempos many times now, and the restaurant continues as good as ever. The food is very well prepared, and the quality of the ingredients is extraordinary. The service is very good and the atmosphere takes the guests to another dimension. I recommend that you shouldn't go there when in a rush. Although you will be served... More

I had been to braga this month and stayed at Ibis. This restaurant is hardly a minute's walk from Ibis. Food and wine at "Velhos Tempos" ended my day perfectly :) They serve very tasty food, interior is very different and simple, I liked it. Service is very good.

The Velhos Tempos is just down the street from the Ibis hotel. This non-touristy restaurant serves tasty food at very reasonable prices.
