Description: This is a beautiful place in the central square of the historic centre of Braganca. Its situated in an old mansion and serves traditional Northern dishes (eg I had pheasant with chestnuts). Not many tourists go to Braganca, but if they do this is definitely an experience worth exploring.

There was once a big noble family house in middle of town. Then came 20th century and 21st... the house is there, the noblesse is also there, the traditional way of receiving gests is there; but it's a restaurant. Wonderfull old traditional Portuguese food. Wonderfull windes. Wonderfull place: you feel beeing in the late 19th century, with Mozart as soundscape,... More

Possibly the best meal during our time in Portugal. Delicious game meals (note: large portion sizes), served in a wonderful atmosphere with the restaurant housed in an old building furnished accordingly. We were treated to live music, complementary champagne/tapas/port wine and attentive service, the only criticism I would have was the wait for our food -but it was worth it.

An older, slightly worn establishment, I was made to feel special. On both occasions I was treated as though I had been coming for years. And the food on both occasions was excellent.

Real traditional food, very well made and with a fantastic and friendly service. The owners are always nearby even with a full house as was the case. I was there with my kids and we really enjoyed dinner. Caution with the size of the portions. They are huge.

Very good food and wine, proudly regional. A great range of game dishes; you will not go hungry. Extremely friendly service. What more do you want?

We were 5 adults and 4 lively small children. Arrived with no reservation and were immediately welcomed to two tables in their shaded garden which, on a hot day was just fantastic. The service was superb and all needs were attended quickly in a considerate and friendly manner. Our children left their plates empty which is a rare event: the... More

My family of 4 (2 adults and 2 children ages 6 and 9) from the USA stumbled upon this treasure in our one night visit to Braganca. We were a tad early for dinner in the town at 6:30pm as the streets and restaurants were empty and we wondered where everyone was! We saw later that Church was in session... More

On a two night stay in Braganza, we happened upon this charming restaurant in the centre of town. With nowhere planned, we spotted the restaurant from a nearby cafe, read about it on trip advisor and we were welcomed to a lovely table in the garden on a busy Saturday. The simple entrance between some shops belies a charming, traditional... More

Hidden away behind an unassuming entrance is a real gem. Up some quite steep stairs we were led to a courtyard. There were nine of us but nothing was too much trouble for the couple who I assume are the owners. A charming setting with a good selection of food. Bananas and cheese seemed a little eccentric but tasted really... More
