Dinner here was very interesting, the place is truely beautiful! You´d never say looking from the outside. It is like you´re having dinner at your "crazy" great-aunts manor.Books everywhere, very homey when you come in, the actual dining room is set up like a gourmet restaurante. Nice white linen, porcaline etc. The staff was polite and the food was nice.... More

The food was great, tasty and very-well presented! The service was impeccable and very friendly. The ambiance was five stars! It only has one issue, which is to be located quite far from Lisbon to go there several times per year! ;-) I went there several years ago, and I and my husband still talk about that romantic dinner in...

There was a fine sound system and great classical music coming from the bar 2 rooms away. This place has charm and a rustic appearance. In the bar area there is a good library of books. The gentleman who took our orders and waited on us had a quirky sense of humor. House wine was quite good and the food... More

I have visited this restaurant several times, and the quality of the food never fails to impress. It is located in an old manor house in the center of Bragança, and has a suiting atmosphere. It his hard to find game meat with such a delicate preparation and presentation as you can find here. The chestnut soup and the codfish... More

The food is, indeed, very good. The veal was great and the rice with hare was also very good. The chestnut soup and the banana with cheese are a must-have entries. The staff is very friendly, but there was only one person at service that night, so it took a lot of time to get our dishes. I'll would go... More

I liked the goblets and the decoration of the restaurant. The staff kept checking that everything was ok and helped us with recommendations etc. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking... More

Solar Bragançano is one of the oldest and best restaurants in Bragança. The space is unique and old fashion. The service very kind and old school with linen napkins and towels. Bur the best thing is the food and the wine. Trás-os-Montes is famous for its Alheiras (a kind of sausage) and for the Naco (a piece of meat served... More

Old fashioned restaurant with home made food typical of the zone. Service is nice and the food is ok. But the atraction is not really the food, but the place itself and the atmosphere. Takes you back to the 1930s or so. The house wine was excellent and very cheap. Desserts were also great. Main courses just average I'm afraid.... More

This restaurant doesn't use flour in its cooking, which makes it an ideal choice for parties eating with a coeliac. There was no difficulty in communicating our needs, and my glamorous gluten-free assistant was warned off a salad that contains bread croutons. The salad she had instead, cod with boiled egg, was delicious, as were my chestnut soup, her pheasant,... 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.
