We have been to more than 75 restaurants in Portugal and this was by far the worst experience we have had. Perhaps the worse we have had anywhere. Beautiful day, great location, lovely view and three tries later our lunch was still not right. Not...More

I have to agree with a review I saw that gave this restaurant a "meh" rating. It was delightful sitting outside and seeing the lights twinkling on the river below. The food, however, was not great. I had the roast kid. There were three pieces...More

Fast and efficient service. Forgettable starters composed by olives, broa and savories. Cabrito for me and grilled octopus for my wife. Mine was great, hers dreadful. Baked Apple and cantilope for dessert. Beer for both. 48 Euros and change where 28 was for the underwhelming...More

The restaurant offers a very nice view of the local bridge since 1929. Maybe that's as long as they charge "automatically" for all starters on offer, even if you haven't had any. The revised bill was over 15 € less - well worth reminding the...More

Took some friends to taste the typical 'sarrabulho' rice which they enjoyed. Although the service was good, the staff really need to improve their hospitality. It is not at all reflective of the warmth and friendliness witnessed in all other establishments in the 'Minho' region.
