Gosto Superior

Reviewed By Stella_1834 - London, United Kingdom

We had a great vegetarian meal and I am not a vegetarian so often sceptical but was really pleasantly surprised and would highly recommend it to both vegetarians and non- vegetarians. Amazing value for money and great desserts too - especially the apple crumble. It got busy at around 20.30 so would either book or get there early!

Restaurante Cozinha da Se

In the land of Archbishops and the edge of the Cathedral is a house that lives differently day and night. Restaurant during mealtimes, turns into a bar with live music the night away. The decor is a mix of various styles and eras, beginning with the ancient stone walls, contrasting with modern lamps and bold, colorful paintings as well as contemporary art. In the table, the art goes through dishes like feijoada octopus, cod and skewered with bread sticks bull laurel.

Nice place and a good crew that gove you a great night out. The Portugese kitchen seems simple but it is all in the small details and herbs. That is what they understood in this place with touches of safraan, coriander and other spices gracing your taste buds. And for desert, the waiter refused to let us go before we tasted the famous Podim Abade de Priscos. If we tell you what's in it you probably don't want to eat it...but do...in one word marvellous.

Paulo Padeiro

Reviewed By Maphysto - Bonn, Germany

This is a place we would never have found without tripadvisor. Located in a residential area quite a bit off the main tourist routes, this is an inconspicuous place with little effort wasted on decoration. Costumers seem to be mostly local families who enjoy the delicious goat that is the house specialty. We were delighted. Simply good meat perfectly prepared, with excellent roasted potatoes, a nice tomato salad, and a truly excellent red vinho verde to go with this. The service was very friendly, too. Well worth the rather long walk.

In a recent visit to Braga we tried the ice cream at this well reviewed shop. The maracujá (passion fruit) flavour is excellent! The service was good and the shop is located in a quiet corner with a pleasant outdoor Seating area, but close to the main shop area.

Sao Frutuoso

Situated just outside Braga, near the chapel of St. Frutuoso of Visigothic Montélios, this space is where the art of cooking and hospitality are always present. Restaurant with more than 30 years, a landmark in the city, bleached so original, presents an extremely welcoming.

Reviewed By yupersik

We found this restaurant thanks to reviews on TripAdvisor in other way it is quite complicated to find it because it is situated a little bit off the beaten pass.
Once we entered it was clear that it was a very ancient traditional restaurant due to its interior. Rocky walls and wooden furniture. Later we found out there also was an inner open Terrace.
The menu was written by hand in Portuguese so it was quite hard to understand what was it about but the waiter kindly explained us all the positions and stressed the ones that were specials that particular day. We had a Coq and a Veal. Both stewed and garnished with some vegetables. The waiter also recommended us the size of the dishes and its appropriate quantities. Everything with desserts and a bottle of wine summed up to about 60€.
Both dishes tasted greatly! It was the real Portuguese home cooking. If we ever return to Braga, we will be sure to come back to this restaurant.

Naco NA Pedra

Reviewed By CarlosSantos - Porto, Portugal

For over 15 years that this restaurant is an icon of Braga (the third-largest city in Portugal).
The food is without fail, amazing whether you go for the "Tibornada de Bacalhau (Cod fish)" or for the great success of the Chef Vitor "Posta à Mirandesa".. I can also highly recommend "Espeto de Picanha" (Tender loin on the spit). Among several Deserts I would like to mention the favourites "Crepe à Naco" and "Baba de Camelo ". In addition to a warm atmosphere, some times with live music, the staff is very efficient and courteous. Concerning the wines, they have a wide list to pamper any appreciator. The prices are very reasonable and most of the courses are enough for two. When in Braga look for the NACO NA PEDRA at Rua Fernado Oliveira Guimarães 38 and do not forget to book for dinner. Phone 253218028. Enjoy your meal!|

A Carvalheira

Reviewed By IsabelMNSS

As a group of three friends we had a splendid first trial at this restaurant on a Sunday lunch. The restaurant’s site and setting is fabulous! The refurbished stone house where the restaurant functions was well recovered with good architectural taste. The surrounding Gardens are very well kept, enriching one’s experience. The main interior of the restaurant has a great layout and the fireplace located at the entrance is fantastic! It is beautiful, as well as functional - it warms up the restaurant making it cozy. “A Carvalheira” is very sought out, thus one absolutely has to book in advance. The staff are friendly and helpful. For starters we chose the seasoned boiled squid tapas, as well as the cured ham, accompanied by “broa” - all splendid! For main course we chose the roasted pork’s leg, served with roasted potatoes, delicious white rice and green sauted vegetables. Absolutely divine! For dessert we had “pudim Abade de Priscos” (a delicious conventual sweet pudding), as well as cheese. It was a “heaven on earth” Sunday lunch well savoured! Highly recommend this Restaurant for food lovers!

I visited this restaurant for a lunch with my wife. It was a pleasant surprise. We were the first to arrive to find a very cosy warm room. Mr Victor is really a charismatic character that makes you feel at home from the 1st moment....MoreMuito obrigado pela avaliação. Até breve o bacalhau esperta o meu Amigo.

Churrascaria O Braseiro

Reviewed By Pedro S - Porto, Portugal

We ate the house stake. It was grilled meat acompanied by potatos (batatas a muro), and vegetables.
The vegetables were nice, the potatos were ok, but the meat was not up to standards. The meat in that kind of restaurant should be a lot better!
The service was average, although the waiters were polite.
The codfish looked nice, but that's something one can eat anywhere in Portugal...
Certainly not the best in Arcos de Valdevez....
