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

If you don't have family in Trás-os-Montes who can feed you real food or your family does not know how to cook, this is the place where you can rely to get all that and warm hosting
