“Service with a smile !”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

In a nice, quiet street, just outside the squares with tourist traps, you will find Restaurante Bar Art & Gula. The facade looks less inviting, but you are surprised by the appearance inside. It is lively and buzzing in A & G. Although it was crowded, I could get, without booking a table on the first floor. The crowd was not annoying and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I initially feared long delays, but a compliment to staff and kitchen. Very efficient, everything is served on time and with a smile. I've taken wine by the glass and was pleasantly surprised to see they are not frugal when pouring. The food was delicious, the atmosphere lively, enjoyable and definitely a place to come back.

“Excelent Food Quality”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

Being the European Culture Capital, Guimarães is, these days, a very busy city!
Since every place was crowded, Art & Gula provided us with the perfect place to wait for service. The restaurant as a waiting room with very confortable sofas on the ground floor.
Having an available table took something around 20 minutes of pure relax and "lounge style" music.
Then, the food... Amazing clams, fantastic cod and a very good choice of meat... except that it was a little bit too much on the rare side, despite out explicit request to the waiter that we didn't enjoy rare meat.
Apart from that, it was very good, the wine choice had a good price / quality ratio, and service was available even after 3PM.
Good place!

Earned a place on my "to visit" list related to Guimarães!

“Oh Yum”
Reviewed April 17, 2012

One of the best selections of petiscos and good variety of main courses. The Rump Steak was BEST meat in Portugal, we are convinced. Atmosphere on second floor is calm, classy and attractive. Prices were among the best for the top-quality eateries in Guimares.
