While visiting the National Park of Peneda Gerês in Northern Portugal, "O Espigueiro de Soajo" may be a good option for lunch. Friendly atmosphere, typical cuisine and reasonable prices. We had a nice meal: green salad and veal cooked with potatoes and vegetables. The right meal to continue our journey into the Portuguese wilderness. Enjoy!

Been to this restaurant several times over the past 4 years. The young waitresses are always very helpful and efficient. The gentleman who is the owner can be very pleasant at some times and very offhand at others. The food is also variable - when it's good it's very good but sometimes it's very below par. We only eat here... More

My friends and I really enjoy dining at Espigueiro do Soajo. The atmosphere is both formal and casual. It is authentic in its cuisine and in its decor. It is a quintessential Alto Minho restaurant in its hospitality, friendliness, and welcoming attitude. The owners speak fluent English and are ready to serve all clients. We will continue to go back... More
