We had an unexpected delicious dinner in the Solar restaurant. It is hard to believe that behind a bit run-down facade, there is such a charming old style restaurant. The owner went out of his way to make us happy, arranging a table in the...More

I dined early, arriving at 12:30 on Sunday afternoon. The restaurant did not really begin to fill up until 2:00 p.m. The waitress was a bit off putting. Her English was a bit less effective than my Portuguese; but it took a while for us...More

Thank you for the visit David. Einstein wasted just a little more paper to write the Theory of Relativity.

Excellent dinner. Entradas, partridge and melon were as desired. The fish coger and sole were excellent prepared, very tasty. The service is distinguished. The house wine was very good for only 3.5 medio liter. Needless to say, will come back.

I came across this gem back in 2013 by chance on a miserable October night. This trip we specifically went to Braganca to eat here and were not disappointed. The atmosphere and attentive service was exactly the same, the owners are clearly enthusiastic about their...More

Eating here is a little like going out to dinner with friends. You are greeted as if a guest by the husband and wife owners and attention is personal but 'unsticky'. The restaurant is on the first door of an old house, and you climb...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.
