This family-run restaurant offers a selection of Portuguese dishes. We went three times and enjoyed something different on each occasion. Staff are charming and happy to guide you in your choice. Then there is the dessert trolley!

The restaurant of this hotel has a sophisticated and glamorous look. The music is sexy (Louis Armstrong) and the waiters are proffessional delivering service with the perfect timing. I'm in a fishy mood and so you should be if your in Portugal. Thus I opt for the fish sopa; it is deep, rich,smooth and most of all fishy. All it... More

We had a very good lunch here: two kinds of hake; bow tie pasta with turkey. Perfectly done, excellent service; they answered detailed questions about delicious soft wild game sausages.

This is a superbly located restaurant in the heart of the Old Town and is close to the shoreline route of the Portuguese Way to Santiago de Compostela. We had some tasty bread with olives followed by a freshly made and delicious vegetable soup. Main was roast pork in a Port wine sauce with chestnuts and potatoes intelligently served on... More

We stayed in the Pensao for one night during our caminho de Santiago. Since the restaurant was right downstairs and had very good reviews we decided to dine there. It's definitely a cut above most local restaurants. While the menu was traditional Portuguese cuisine, it was prepared with flair ... a bit of creativity and an obviously talented chef and... More

We were warmly greeted by the multilingual (at least 4 by her conversations with other patrons) host and had the best food that we ate in Viana do Castelo. The meals and wines were not cheap, but very reasonable for something different to the very samey restaurants in the area.

This is a charming little restaurant with a lot of attention paid to detail. The orange theme of the restaurant is carried into the interior decoration with orange leaf wallpaper. The entrance features a map of Viana and points of interest relating to the names of the individualised rooms they have in their pension. This restaurant seemed to be mainly... More

We stumbled upon this place on the web and were very content with our welcome. A family welcome. The food was the best we had in Portugal and is available for all three meals a day. They have some 3-bed rooms (a real advantage when travelling with a teenager). In addition, the town is a good jumping-off point for daytrips... More

A group of friends with young children were made to feel very welcome, the restaurant is nicely presented - it has clearly been refurbished in the recent past using traditional and modern ideas - the food was very good indeed, ranging from a starter plate of interpreted Portuguese classics - through to hearty and substantive roasted lamb and seafood. It... More
