Great choice if you are visiting Braga

Great portuguese food and wine in a traditional setting, staff is friendly and efficient, prices are very reasonable. The restaurant has been owned and operated by the same family for the last 35 years.

Nice inside space. The food is good, and they had a good Menu. But the quantities are very low to each person.
