Nice atmosphere, nicely decorated, and delightful server who spoke good English. Unfortunately the food and drink were a disappointment. Compared with other restaurants in big and small towns in Portugal where I have eaten well, this one is way below them all. I ordered a port branca (white) which was very low quality compared with what I have had in... More

We came across this one by accident by ploughing along the street of restaurants in Vila Real. We liked the look of the menu! Inside, the front part is unconventional with tables in cut down port barrels , some even inside the barrels. At the rear, there are conventional tables. One busy but highly efficient and friendly waitress who spoke... More

This unashamedly tourist restaurant provides a great opportunity to get to know traditional Portuguese fare. The extra friendly staff are able to provide excellent advice about what's on offer. Advice and menus include English and French. You might even get some good ideas about which parts of the country are worth visiting. The food is well presented and hearty amd... More

The waiter was very nice, helping us to pick a few things from the menu. We stopped in on a Thursday afternoon, and service was fast and professional. The highlight of the meal was the baked octopus - cooked perfectly and made a great meal.

This restaurant serves traditional Portuguese dishes --I.e., lots of cod and pork-- in a charming setting with lots of old utensils and pictures hanging on the walls, old wine barrels, etc. but you can get all the same food at any of the local sidewalk restaurants for a fraction of the price. Very good service. I ate in the downstairs... More

My wife and I both had the classic Portuguese dish arroz de pato no forno (duck with rice baked in the oven). Absolutely superb! Excellent desserts and great service too. I would very happily come back.
