It has a very relaxed and classy environment. Tried the "Bacalhau com Broa" (cod with regional bread) and a mouth watering dessert "gratinado de castanha". Regional and flavourful. A must eat place

We had to have a late dinner, after closing time and where very well received! All food was excellent, staff amazing and very nice ambient. Will come back for sure! If you pass by Vila Real, be sure to visit this modern restaurant with traditional kitchen!

Our restaurant experience in Vila Real is limited to Bons Tempos and Terra de Montanha. Bons Tempos wins regarding the food. Especially remarkable are starters and desserts. Main course was a bit too ordinary but good wine compensated all. Highly recommended. Please, realize - it is only provisional town and nothing sophisticated expected.

We struggled to find a decent restaurant in Vila Real, but this one was recommended in the Lonely Planet and it was very good. The food was reasonably priced, around 10-12 euros for a main and the wine was not expensive. Service was good too.
