Visited this place because of the nice terrace, but that's the only positive about that place. Slow service, not really friendly and on top of that :worst wine ever... No go for me!

My boyfriend and I are from Braga. We do not recommend this restaurant. Pricey and the service and the food are not good. The location is great but there are a lot of good restaurants in that area that are better.

Totally agree with some of the other reviews on here. Great location and general décor but even the basics of dishes were terrible. We complained and asked for meal shortly after the food came out. Needs a massive overhaul in terms of Menu & Staff!

It is a historical restaurant, completely rehabilitated, with the medieval walls inside the cafe, visible on the various floors. The food is good, well cooked and with a good price.

You have better for the same price in the surrounding area. Typical coffee for tourists. Central location only.

Bringing a modern-day Braga, Café Astória is a charming concept, serving traditional Portuguese cuisine (with a few international favorites thrown in) to a loyal clientele. Tucked away under a picturesque old portico, the cozy dining room and modern deco, provides an atmospheric retreat. The team here are passionate about local and fresh products, so the menu changes daily. There are price fixed menus on offer at lunch and dinner if you're after a bargain, or just need an excuse to indulge in dessert. In the evening, a seasonal menu is available alongside the full a la Carta, which features dishes like grilled salmon with Greek salad, Bacalhão à Braga and several more regional dishes. The wine list features some excellent Portuguese wines - a real treat for novices and connoisseurs alike.
