We stopped in Vila Real for lunch and found this place by chance. Although it might not give a good impression from the outlook, it offers authentic Portuguese cuisine, as if the owner's gramma was cooking. Highly recommend is the dish with the cod fish - potato pure. The stuff is very polite and friendly.

Visiting from a NA city with a large Portugese expat community, have to say our meal was something completely different and a real delight. Service was top-notch. Staff paired our meal perfectly with a tasty local tinto. Great value.

We just got back from this restaurant. It was recommended by our hotel receptionist. We really liked it. It's unique, and gives you the feeling of being in a unique place. Yet - prices are low, even compared to Portugal reasonable prices, and we all enjoyed our food. Service (which, of course, is waiter-dependent) was kind and pleasant. All in... More

Nice atmosphere, nicely decorated, and delightful server who spoke good English. Unfortunately the food and drink were a disappointment. Compared with other restaurants in big and small towns in Portugal where I have eaten well, this one is way below them all. I ordered a port branca (white) which was very low quality compared with what I have had in... More

We came across this one by accident by ploughing along the street of restaurants in Vila Real. We liked the look of the menu! Inside, the front part is unconventional with tables in cut down port barrels , some even inside the barrels. At the rear, there are conventional tables. One busy but highly efficient and friendly waitress who spoke... More

This unashamedly tourist restaurant provides a great opportunity to get to know traditional Portuguese fare. The extra friendly staff are able to provide excellent advice about what's on offer. Advice and menus include English and French. You might even get some good ideas about which parts of the country are worth visiting. The food is well presented and hearty amd... More

The waiter was very nice, helping us to pick a few things from the menu. We stopped in on a Thursday afternoon, and service was fast and professional. The highlight of the meal was the baked octopus - cooked perfectly and made a great meal.
