There is a great bar. Katie is the best bartender I have ever had! Fresh seafood -not farm raised or frozen! Really a fun and lively place.

We went to Solar Do Minho last week for dinner, as we were craving rodizio-style berbecue, and this place met and exceeded all of our expectations. We had sangria, all kinds of meat wich come with several delicious sides and we left a little room for dessert. I will be back and I highly recommend it!

My wife and I went for rodizio with four other couples on January 16. We had reservations for 715 and were seated promptly. I am not sure which was better - food or service. Both earned five stars. The meat came out early - and often. Just about everything we were offered was excellent. The baby back ribs were so... More

We were seated in the basement along side a party of approximately of 30 mid to late twenty crowd. This place probably holds about 50... More

The meal started fine, our group (of 8), near two large (20+) groups. The food, fine, as it had been in the past. The problems started immediately, when a TV showing football was turned on. The other guest near us, turned into completely reprehensible individuals. The volume alone should have been enough to get management's attention and turn the TV,... More

Once you come here trust me you will come back... the food is truly amazing. The weekends are almost always packed to capacity. No parking but who cares is worth the walk. A bit pricey but definately worth every penny. The steak is incredible and the garlic shrimp is delicious. Service is great.

While in the area we stopped in for a fast dinner. It was early in the evening and we were given a table quickly. Reading through the menu was a delight. It was both in Portuguese and English and very well explained. We chose traditional dishes and having recently been in Portugal we found the food very authentic. The kitchen... More

I ate some delicious fish. The rest of my group raved over the rodizio style meal. Pineapple! According to them you won't be disappointed.
