We had a wonderful octopus salad entree, cabrito and fried octopus. Everything very good, maybe the cabrito a bit dry, depends on your taste. We had a very good douro wine, and service was absolutely excellent (for example warm plates).

We were here for dinner; no reservations and it wasn't crowded. The food was okay (I had the cabrito) but no more than that; a bit pricier than I expected. Not worth a trip but a good combination if you're visiting Bom Jesus - adequate parking, walking distance to the elevado.

Your restaurant for winter with beautiful cooked food from Minho. Warm and cozy place. Summer stay outside and enjoy javali. Appetizers are delicate and traditional. Deserts are sweet sins

I had lunch with my parents at the Portico. The food is excellent. I had Perdiz Folhada and it was beautiful. My folks had bacalhau and the portion was enough for two. They have a wide wine selection and the service is very good. Booking may be needed during the week. They have car parking and free wifi.

Cozy and rustic place with a fantastic food. Went there for lunch with my wife. This place had been recommended by a friend who discovered it just one day before us. The attention and service were excellent from both the waiter and the owner. The fish was very fresh and prepared just for us. Very well seasoned and cooked to... More
