Visited Guimaraes on Thursday last week, ordered Bacalhau a Braz, and fresh grilled fish, food was delicious, well presented and decent price, I'd recommend the "menu deal" as it comes with all included from start to finish. Great service and friendly staff. Fully recommended!!!!

Good place to have a lunch during the festival. Cheap small draft beer for only 1€, croquettes with codfish for 1€ and big french fries for 2€. :) Lots of places to sit outside.
