Everything was great about the dinner we had here: the octopus in the oven for 2 was clearly the best we had so far (and my girlfriend is a bit of an octopus-fan so we eat that a lot :), the wines were excellent and reasonably priced, desert (we shared a chocolate and ice cream crepe), and service super attentive....

Located conveniently in the city center, this place has an excellent menu, great service at low prices. We can highly recommend the cod fish with bread. Downside would be that you cant sit outside

We ordered many different things and everything was great! COD fish was really good, chicken breast really tasty, cheese plate as an starter, really good too. We even ordered wine Aveleda really good! Price quite affordable, ambient great! Only problem a bit busy...sometimes you don't find a table!

Excellent service and authentic local dishes. We especially enjoyed the local cod dish followed by tasty desert and coffee.

Food is fantastic. Fair price. Nice atmosphere. And the waiter (that happened to be the owner of the restaurant) was very helpful and willing to make our dinner a great experience. Highly recommended if you come over Braga

We were recommended the restaurant by our host. And we're happy we went there. The design is not sophisticated, but lovely! Food is amazing! We are not restaurant goers, we usually prefer something simple. So we liked food and service a lot! We highly recommend it!

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.
