Good food. Good sightseeing.

Right next to the Sameiro Sanctuary, up in the hill, this restaurant is a great place to eat the Portuguese traditional "Bacalhau com natas" (Codfish with cream). A family atmosphere on a restaurant with several years of experience. Also try the Rosbife.

This restaurant is located at an amazing area: Sameiro. It is so famous among locals that I went there, and probably due to high expectation it was a disappointment. Old, with good food (far from excellent), everything is dated with exception of the bill.

The food is above average for sure. But this review is making a relative comparison to other restaurants in Braga and even nearby.

Our favorite choices are Filetes de pescada and Bifes com champignon. The things I love the most are the starters. Bolinhos de bacalhau and croquetes, they are simple starters but absolutely delicious. Especially if they... More
