A modern restaurant set in a well situated spot to enjoy the views of the Minho valley. An original menu based on traditional Portuguese cuisine with a wine list to match.

This restaurant is located near the casino. It's an elegant dining experience without extremely high prices. Everything from the food, service and ambiance was excellent. Meals are cooked in the dining area. Not easy to find but worth the hunt.

A Casa das Velhas is an excellent restaurant in all of his aspects. The localization is probably the strongest point, it’s located on the top of a hill and in the middle of the nature, from there the view is stunning. The food is really good as well, starting with the tasty and fresh tuna paté they serve in the... More

The price per head was around 30 €, it is good value for money. The service was very polite and paid attention to everything.

Unfortunately we were not able... More

It was a pity that a fantastic panorama have been destroied by a fake sea food menu. The frozen shrimps were disgusting and the rice was bad. Bad professionals should not be alowed in such restaurants.

The place is chic and the service nice. I loved the view over the river (we ate outside) and the food was very good. I tried the grilled fish (sargo) with vegetables and recommend it. For dessert I had the most amazing beet and chocolate cake.
