Very slow service (i.e. we had starters and no drinks!), food was very average and definitely not very well combined. In some situations, it was overcooked or undercooked. Second visit done and most probably the last. Does not worth the price!

Did not order much but my spaghetti was to die for. Hint of spice and very tasty. Nice break from seafood on our trip. My partner’s steak looked well cooked and was enjoyed. Would recommend.

Most of our meals were good. The cod was not. But, prices are expensive and service was slow. It was a popular place so maybe you will find it a better value.

We were a group of 4. The spaghetti and prawns was excellent and we also enjoyed the vegan salad, apple cake and chocolate cake. The food is very good and service is efficient and friendly. G and K from Oz

The outside eating areas in the garden are beautiful on a warm evening, and the restaurant was busy on an early September Sunday evening. We ate there on our first evening in Guimaraes and had a pleasant meal, staff were friendly and attentive. The food...More
