The owner told us that this restaurant has been a "project in the making for the past thirty plus years". She has certainly done an excelling job. The decor in general, the cutlery, glassware, china are superb, and the food is excellent.

I've lived in Lisbon for two year, and I can say hands down that my meal at Solar Bragancano was my best to date anywhere in the country. The chestnut soup was amazing, and the wild boar (javali) was so succulent and tender it practically...More

This is a beautiful place in the central square of the historic centre of Braganca. Its situated in an old mansion and serves traditional Northern dishes (eg I had pheasant with chestnuts). Not many tourists go to Braganca, but if they do this is definitely an experience worth exploring.
