We totally loved the place and how it was decorated with boxes of wine bottles of all sorts and ages and - cute detail - with small boxes full of coins. The food was excellent - both dishes were waiter's suggestion and we were grateful to him for that - with a special emphasize on the vegetarian one (which is... More

The meal was very very good, but the best was the atmosphere and the table service. Quite near Sé de Braga, at the city center, is a must go for dinner!

Wonderfully tasty meal of mussels in green sauce as starter and then pork loin with chestnuts and apple puree and chicken breast rolled in ham with cheese. Both delicious. With drinks, salad and cover, 40 Euro for two. The second visit we enjoyed monkfish with shrimp in rice, like a risotto, for two. Also yummy and different. Reservation recommended any... More

I like this place because is pretty small, not a restaurant with many seats. The food has good quality. Cod fish is very good. Very good appetizers. Very good wine list. I strongly recommend.

When we arrived for our reservation there were already 4 tapas on the table. This was way beyond the usual cover of some bread and olives. Apparently you can decline some of the dishes but our friend had already sampled the (ugh) pigs ears so we were stuck with them. I think the waiter should have explained this when seating... More

Everything was great about the dinner we had here: the octopus in the oven for 2 was clearly the best we had so far (and my girlfriend is a bit of an octopus-fan so we eat that a lot :), the wines were excellent and reasonably priced, desert (we shared a chocolate and ice cream crepe), and service super attentive....

In the land of Archbishops and the edge of the Cathedral is a house that lives differently day and night. Restaurant during mealtimes, turns into a bar with live music the night away. The decor is a mix of various styles and eras, beginning with the ancient stone walls, contrasting with modern lamps and bold, colorful paintings as well as contemporary art. In the table, the art goes through dishes like feijoada octopus, cod and skewered with bread sticks bull laurel.
