I've lived in Lisbon for two year, and I can say hands down that my meal at Solar Bragancano was my best to date anywhere in the country. The chestnut soup was amazing, and the wild boar (javali) was so succulent and tender it practically...More

Sort of a rustic elegance. Old school charm in a classic environment. Probably needs some TLC but the ambiance created by the physical environment is special. Run by a husband and wife team (he handles the wine, she the food and the bill) this is...More

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.
