We had a lovely lunch at Amarela. We sat outside in sun overlooking a cozy square. I had the black pork cheeks with mashed potatoes and sauce. They were done just right and melted in the mouth.

This place disappoints! The fish dish I had was a "local speciality" which I'd eaten in numerous other places. Here it was under cooked, tough, full of bones, and slattered in some indescribable creme sauce. In short, it was inedible. Wait staff was tepid. Nobody...More

This is one of my favorite places here. Fantastic food. Don't miss out on this one. Bit of a classier establishment. Get the octopus. So delicious.

The promises were great! But everything lacks refinement. The food was only average. It's a shame. We were expecting way better food. And the price is just too much for this kind of meal. Definitively not a place to go.

A little out-of-the main streets in Guimarães but not as hidden as you will find a very tasty pulp in a familiar ambient. Good cost-benefit choice.
