Reviewed 4 September 2020 via mobile

This restaurant's location is pretty great, a little off one of the big main streets, which makes it much quieter. Both my parents had cod with bread (bacalhau com broa) and they really enjoyed it. Unfortunately, I opted for the prawn curry (caril de gambas)....Big mistake. The curry sauce was pretty bad, tasted off. Very mild curry flavor. And the prawns still had the big vein in, no care in their preparation whatsoever. Overall, I would not recommend this place because I cannot tell if the food is good and I just picked their bad dish, or if my parents were the lucky ones and the rest of the food is bad, average at best. Either way, I definitely think they should take the prawn curry off the menu and stick to the dishes they can actually prepare.More

We had lunch here with the group of 13,everybody was happy with their food. The best was octopus (main course), very tender! Grilled fish was also tasty. Our favourite dessert was chocolate cake and lemon cake!

Visited whilst in Braga following TA advice, but our experience was not as good as others have considered on their reviews. The location and venue is cosy enough including the small outside seating area, but from there on our experience was pretty average and we’d...consider this more of a tourist style restaurant rather than gourmet. We may have just been unlucky with our choices but we felt the execution of both starters and mains were not great, basically over cooked. This included the roasted salt cod and the octopus. Service was also less than welcoming and rushed which didn’t help to improve matters. We may have just had an unlucky night but some of our comments are echoed within other reviews even by those who gave 4 or more stars so we think there is an underlying issue. This isn’t a ‘hidden gem’ but very much in the tourist area and although not overly expensive, still higher than far more appealing and exciting dining options we experienced elsewhere in Braga. We can only recommend potential diners do their research on other options or keep their fingers crossed if they chose this place.More

Visited this evening and enjoyed a delicious meal. Cod fish main and Arroz de Pato main meals were delicious. Highly recommended for dinner in Braga.

This has got to be one of my favorite restaurants in Braga. Their local food is wonderful and there is a good variety of both sea food and meat dishes, which even gets the thumbs up from my Portuguese husband and family. The octopus started...is wonderfully tender and their Picanha com broa (thinly sliced beef topped with breadcrumbs) is so good that on our last visit, all 7 of us ordered the same! They have a selection of desserts including traditional pudim and bolo de bolacha (biscuit cake). The menu is available in a variety of languages and the staff are happy to help whenever necessary.More

I visited recetly this place with my family and just followed the recommendation from a friend, to choose bacalhau, and I was not disapointed. It was very tasteful and with a touch of a modern kitchen. A place to return.

I choose codfish, was good. The waiter was not really pleasant, she just do her job without get the feeling that we are the guests.
