Sao Frutuoso, in its present form, has been around for perhaps three decades. The menu offers sophisticated versions of traditional Minho dishes like bacalhau, vitela, and cabrito, etc. The Boss adapts his offerings to the seasons. His starters are noteworthy: excellent olives, blood sausage, codfish cakes, presunto, cheese, etc. Everything here speaks quality and care. The restaurant itself has architectural... More

I was there for a dinner and it was amazing. I tasted the cod fish with bread with a white wine that was served very ice cold. I will be back there again for sure.

But, Just like every restaurants in Portugal they included the starters in the bill, although we didn't asked them. There is a law in Portugal that says that if... More

The building and decoration is very typical and interesting, the food is homemade, very tasty and one of the best in the region, but it's really expensive, making the value for money not so clear than it should be.

We enjoyed our dinner at this traditional place so much. Everything was perfect. The waiters that recommended the speciality bacalao with home made French fries and desert. We had pudim (like flan,but better) and pumpkin pie. Prices are good, including the food, house white wine, desert and coffee we came to approx. 20 Euro p.p. Would definitely recommend and come...

They have a specialty with puff pastry and codfish, I definitely recommend. The dessert Tart of coconut is my personal recommendation. Owner and waiter very friendly and with a smile on their face which... More

Let's start with the secret: it's #1 here because the owner tells everybody to write review on tripadvisor, everywhere are TA stickers and TA excellence certificates. Personally I had the feeling that the owner is one of the Portuguese restaurant owners who has has understood how to make his business sucessful: first of all some key items on his menu... More
