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.

Wow - we came to this restaurant due to its great name and reviews and we left in complete agreement! The food was superb, everything tasted homemade and delicious, the ingredients taste like real food. The staff does everything to make you feel at home and the place is gorgeous. We'll be returning for sure!

Hidden away from the 'busy' street this restaurant offers a unique, classic and rural decor with excellent food brought to you by a very welcoming and very professional couple. The menu will give you the typical dishes from the region, including game meat. They also offer a large selection of mostly regional wines which you can find here and there... More

We discovered this place from Trip Advisor and were so happy we did! After being greeted by the gentlemanly proprietor, we were shown out to the lovely garden- a very romantic setting with candles, beautiful linen and heirloom-like tableware. One immediately notices that this would not be a hurried evening - one must be patient every step of the way...... More

In the evening of a steaming hot (36 C) day a more than excellent dinner in the back garden, served by an almost aristocratic couple who speak French and English without a flaw. The pheasant and the partridge were great, the wine as well. Sadly we had only one evening in town, but we'll return to have another go at... More

We stumbled across this restaurant and we were so glad we did. The restaurant and owners had an amazing charm and elegance you don't see very often. We all felt we had stepped back into a time when service was paramount. The food was very good as was the wine at a very affordable price. The owners were so keen... More

This is probably the best restaurant in Braganca. The Maitre'd and his wife are charming hosts, the ambiance is evocative of times past and the cuisine is absolutely top class. A must visit if you are in oe near Braganca.
