We came here only last week and were very pleased with the food, wine and service. I think they're making a real effort to improve a few small details. They do Portuguese fondue, which is not cheese but delicious all the same. NOTE: the kitchen closes at 3pm at lunchtimes.

Food only fair; service bad. There was only one other couple in the restaurant and still the waiter got the order wrong. It was corrected after a fair wait; waiter never checked to see how things were. Disappointing given the other restaurants in town.

Was in the area and went to this restaurant, it seems like it must of been a great restaurant a decade ago. At the moment the food is not at all good, a embracement to the Portuguese cuisine.

We decided to try Os Tres Potes despite the negative reviews on Tripadivisorand had an enjoyable evening. It was Sunday night in May, so they were not busy, and as you would expect on a Sunday night, most of the customers were tourists. The room is attractive, with stone walls and folksy artifacts. Our waiter was helpful with a few... More

We visited this restaurant on Monday. We found it just off the main square, just down a side street. The welcome from the owner/waiter was very good, it was pouring with rain outside and we were soaked, but the wood fire was stoked and we soon dried out. Although very little english was spoken, we were given an english menu... More

Really rude staff and difficult rules in this restaurant. We'd like to drink some wine with tapas in the evening. But we was informed that in this place it is impossible just to drink a bottle of wine and eat some tapas like olives cheese and ham! You are obliged to order main course even at 9 pm no matter...

This restaurant was recommended as serving local food. When we arrived at 7.30 there was no one else in. We did struggle with the menu as no one spoke English but that is our failing not speaking their language. We finally ended up with a good meal that was of average price.

We ate here last week after a afternoon visit to Viana do Castelo, at half past 7 we were the first ones seated, in fact we thought they were shut because the welcome was so lack lustre.. They took our order, completely forgot my starter even though I'd pointed it out to the waiter... The mains were ok, the turbot... More

Forget the salt cod. Viana do Castelo has better dishes for you. Local fish and meat like lamb are delicious.
