We went for lunch, being a family of four with three fussy eaters. We hadn't booked but we were welcomed and seated quickly. We had been told the lunch time dish of the day was good. We were not disappointed. We were offered fish or...meat. Two of us has fish, with the others having meat. It was all delicious (four clean plates) and amazing value too (€6 each).More

The restaurant is some kilometers before Terras de Bouro. The first in TA rank in town. I had some expectations. The place is decorated in a someway Vatican style. The service is pretty efficient and everything is clean and immaculate. The starters menu is a...truly jungle of extraordinary pieces (more than 20) of Portuguese food. You can choose the starters menu for € 9,50/person. The main courses of fish and meat can be also an extraordinary gastronomic experience. The wine menu is Portuguese wide acceptable, with very good region Vinho Verde brands. The desserts are gourmet style and very tasteful. A little pricy if you choose a total experience. Better make a reservation.More

Second time I have eaten at this lovely family run restaurant. It is unequivocally the best wholesome regional cuisine in northern Portugal. A slow paced dinner where the tables are used with one sitting per service and no rush to move you on. Be sure...to book as its a favourite with the locals. When your done, enjoy a beer with the locals watching football outside.More

This was my second time coming here to this restaurant. No matter how far and how up the mountain it is, this place is excellent and worth it all. We ordered half the appetizers and as you can see below, everything came perfect, taste was...on point. Then we had a leg of beef and it was so tender and juicy! The wait staff are so friendly and kind and on point when it comes to the service. Can't wait to come back here again!More

7 of us called in for the set lunch which was just 6 euros per person, included starter soup & a choice of fish, portuguese sausage or veal wrapped in bacon, it was so filling and tasty, so cheap and included bread basket. Service was...amazing and spoke good english as we were poor at portuguese, recommended.More

This restaurant has quite a lot of character and the way the food is served is great. You get a huge selection of appetisers brought to the table to share which are lovely and a great way of tasting lots of local delicacies. The main...courses are equally generous and well cooked.More
