We have been visiting this lovely restaurant for many years. We find the standard is excellent and consistent, the owners professional and good at running their restaurant. It is very clean and we have never had a bad meal in almost 20 years. It is one of the reasons we return regularly to Viana do Castelo.

My advice is simple: don't repeat our same mistake. Don't be fooled by the inviting interior and simply stay away from this restaurant. That is, unless you enjoy being treated like a sack of dung, even though you are parting ways with an enormous amount of money. Like I already mentioned, the place looks the part. They do alright with... More

Poor service from a waiter who wasn't at all interested in us. Food mediocre and prices high. Would not recommend this place .

Liked the decor, ambiance, all "old-portugeuse" inside. We were really taken aback by the waiter's attitude. He was so unfriendly and grumpy. We had eaten tapas prior to coming to this restaurant, so just wanted soup and starter portions of food, this seemed to really irritate him , (though we were still spending 75 Euros on food and wine and...

There are some great restaurants in Viana do Castelo and this isn't one of them. Why do people head here like lemmings? The service was absolutely terrible, so bad that I refused to pay the service charge, which I never do. The wine was overpriced and not up to scratch, the beef was so chewy I gave up and it... More

A nice restaurant, with good food, served with as much of a fanfare as possible (several dishes seemed to require being flambed at the table!) and a nice atmosphere.

Awful service, really unfriendly, and despite the interesting menu and various wines by the glass to try, not worth the effort. Would just go somewhere else.

Fantastic meal. Not the cheapist but worth every centime. The atmosphere was relaxing and friendly. The Chef was available to answer any questions and it added to the atmosphere.

More expensive than any of the restaurants we'd eaten at on our holiday - but still good value. The menu was also more extensive than other restaurants we had eaten in, as was the wine list. The food was delicious and served by very polite and professional waiters. Very smart interior and there was an English translation of the menu.

Traditional old building, a bit of a heavy decor, with old stone, etc. Excellent food. Distant service. Pricey, average 50,00 Euros per head. Watch the wine list - you get very nicw wine for 15,00 a bottle ( out of curiosity, and if you cab afford and are really able to appreciate it, there are wines at Eur 600,00 a... More
