We ordered "Bacalhau assado" with Vegetables, Potatoes and Boiled Egg. They forgot the egg and the "Bacalhau" was extremely salty to the point it was barely uneatable. We complained to the waitress and she tried to remediate by serving extra vegetables and potatoes, which they...More

A modern restaurant set in a well situated spot to enjoy the views of the Minho valley. An original menu based on traditional Portuguese cuisine with a wine list to match.

This restaurant is located near the casino. It's an elegant dining experience without extremely high prices. Everything from the food, service and ambiance was excellent. Meals are cooked in the dining area. Not easy to find but worth the hunt.

It was a pity that a fantastic panorama have been destroied by a fake sea food menu. The frozen shrimps were disgusting and the rice was bad. Bad professionals should not be alowed in such restaurants.
