Service was really good. We chose a four-course menu. Bread was home made, fish soup was silky and soft and the beef fillet was tender and melted in mouth. This restaurant deserves Michelin stars!

This was one of the best meals I've ever had. Everything was amazing, from the service, to the room atmosphere. The only downside is the location, which is a bit isolated, however it doesn't spoil the experience. A restaurant to visit again soon.

GASTRONOMY, HOSPITALITY AND PORTUGALITY From our passion for cuisine and the rehabilitation of a former stable from the XVIII century, has born in 2006, Ferrugem - a place to celebrate our gastronomy that has as main ingredients the hospitality, the comfort and the commitment between the product, the message and the knowledge. Every day we look for organic products with portuguese identity, preferably autochthonous and produced in a sustainable agriculture, and we make inconformity and creativity our condiments. We practice a honest, genuine, traditional and dynamic cuisine, that does not follow trends and whose the only purpose is to tell a new story for minho's cuisine, wishing that our commitment meets your vision.
