We both ordered a different steak, both were excellent. The "cuisson" was also as requested, which is becoming a rare thing these days (usually overbaked, but not here). Staff was friendly and efficient. Recommended for sure!

In the small streets of Viana do Castelo you can find a great restaurant for meat lovers. The Steaks are great, the souces, the beer and the deserts. The staff is friendly and is a good place for a night out and a group.
