Description: 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.

We chose Solar Bragancano on the basis that it topped the TA list of places to eat in Braganca. And we couldn't have been more impressed. On the first floor of a traditional 18thC Portuguese house, with linen tablecloths, fine crystal, china and cutlery, overlooking the most delicious patio garden; we ate some of the best home cooking we've ever been served in Portugal. The owners were wonderfully helpful and attentive and the home made liqueur they served at the end of the meal to die for. Truly one of the most wonderful dining experiences in a very long time.

Liked everything. Very good traditional service, specialized in game and tradicional portuguese cuisine. Some innovative deserts. Try the cherry soup !

This restaurant is just a taste of Portugal, especially the interior part of this small and lovely country. The game dishes are the best choice for a tourist, as well as the typical dishes and desserts. The mood and decorations are the antique style. A very nice restaurant!

Solar Bragançano itself is an experience that has made us return over and over again. The atmosphere is sophisticated, yet relaxed and warmly welcoming. They have an excellent game menu, a superb wine selection and they make delicious, unique desserts – all regional and prepared with love and dedication. On top of all they truly make each and every customer feel like a special guest of honour.

Have eaten here on several occasions, on trips down to Porto & Lisbon and always look forward to this.

Other reviews talk about the ambience, the wood paneling, the starched table linen - and they are all spot on. Also, try and sit outside, if the weather allows, as it's a great atmosphere.

Service is wonderfully discreet and unobtrusive. Food is often of the seasonal variety, so ask what is available (I had kid, last time and it was sublime, in a very simple manner). As my last visit was in May, strawberries (morangos) were available and they were just delicious!

Wines are all true Portuguese, and I enjoyed the Duc de Viseu (red) that I had.

I can't rate this place highly enough, as a wonderful experience of 'old' Portugal.
