May be great for fish. Choosing meat it was pretty normal. Service was good, though rather slow (indeed the place was crowded...).

This is a nice restaurant next to the cathedral. The restautant offers nice traditional portuguese food. We went for the Arroz Tamboril (monkfish and prawns with rice - like a curry) and the Bacalhau Filet. Both were massive portions very nicely flavoured. So defintely recommended for a relaxing evening and nice food.

This is a lovely little restaurant. They welcome you with a complimentary drink. The food is typical Portuguese style, more upscale. The portions were large and the food came out fresh and hot. The service was slightly slower than expected. There didn't seen to be enough servers or bussers for the amount of tables. I would recommend the Octopus!

Fun restaurant, with the best service we encountered during our stay in Portugal. Reasonable prices for the food quality and presentation, level of attention and charm of the restaurant. Get there early, as it fills quickly.

This is the place you want to find for a really good lunch or dinner in excellent Portuguese style. Well recognized already by TA and Michelin, but rightly so. A place everybody is willing to leave his money, including many coins stashed in wall cracks and any other opportunity. A place where inventory is not written off but increases over... More

We had lunch after a long day in the rain and it was wonderful I had a veal steak and my significant other had an octopus soup. Amazing! Also the staff was really nice and the wine selection is good. 😋 Definitely recommend it for anyone visiting Braga.

The restaurant is nice but if you go to a restaurant good food is the main thing. And I was disappointed by our meal. We ordered the duck with rice out the oven, but it was more rice with duck. We had a huge pile of rice with no vegetables whatsoever and the duck was scredded within the rice. A... More
