We spent some time looking round Guimaraes, its a lovely old town with small alleyways and cobbled streets. We came across Casa Amarela by chance. we sat outside on a warm September evening, we both had the prawns in a garlic and orange sauce, then my husband had something he'd never tried before blackened pork cheeks with red wine sauce,...

We had a lovely meal in this restaurant - delicious food and excellent service. The restaurant is in Guimaraes' historic centre in Rua de Donaes, a lovely little square not far from Largo da Oliveira. The meal was beautifully cooked and presented and was very good value.

The food was just okay, very average. The prices are far exaggerated, for the same price you pay here, you can get better meals in Guimaraes. The service was awful, the waitress took a long time to take our order and it took far too long to get our food (we waited an hour after ordering), the waitress did excuse... More

Lovely place serving authentic local good food. Beautiful plaza in front in one of the most beautiful Portuguese cities. The area around is full of small bars and other restaurants so worth a visit. Very good service so overall a good experience.

Booked a table for five over the phone while driving. The location is on a n on square, clear and lighted, well conditioned. Servicing people were very helpful, food was great. We were very surprised about the tastefulness of the rice with duck that one of my daughters ordered. Octopus and cod were very good as well. Even the kids... More

We had a meal at casa amarela yesterday, the food was very good quality. The staff seemed a bit stressed out running around and not really paying attention to individual customers but I suppose it's normal on a busy summer night. We were charged a wrong amount and had to explain it to a waitress. In general The experience was... More

Went there after walking the town and seeing the castle based on Tripadvisor recommendation. We sat outside on the square which is really beautiful in Summer. The staff was nice and seemed to be fluent in most European languages. I had the meat dish and my wife the fish - both were really good. We shared the chocolate mouse desert... More
