Good service and great food. We both went for steak main courses and they were delicious. The outside balcony area is lovely on summer evenings. Just mind that you don't sleep under sleeping (and potentially pooping) pigeons. Lovely end to our two night break in the town.

We visited this restaurant twice and had problems with the service both times. The food is very good value for the money though. The first visit we asked for a bottle of wine and they brought it and then the waitress was distracted by another diner and left the table without bringing wine glasses or a cooler for the bottle. We later ordered asking for the salad before the main course of bacalao with pure and they brought the main dish after 35 or 40 mins. and then the salad five minutes later. The next visit my son ordered grilled beef and they brought him the fish that my wife and I ordered for ourselves. Although the food was very good and the prices were very reasonable I won´t be coming back because the service was terrible.

Great meal. Do be warned this place can fill up quick!

The patio upstairs provides a nice place to sit.

Had a nice big piece of beef. Perfectly cooked.

In a nice, quiet street, just outside the squares with tourist traps, you will find Restaurante Bar Art & Gula. The facade looks less inviting, but you are surprised by the appearance inside. It is lively and buzzing in A & G. Although it was crowded, I could get, without booking a table on the first floor. The crowd was not annoying and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I initially feared long delays, but a compliment to staff and kitchen. Very efficient, everything is served on time and with a smile. I've taken wine by the glass and was pleasantly surprised to see they are not frugal when pouring. The food was delicious, the atmosphere lively, enjoyable and definitely a place to come back.

Being the European Culture Capital, Guimarães is, these days, a very busy city!
Since every place was crowded, Art & Gula provided us with the perfect place to wait for service. The restaurant as a waiting room with very confortable sofas on the ground floor.
Having an available table took something around 20 minutes of pure relax and "lounge style" music.
Then, the food... Amazing clams, fantastic cod and a very good choice of meat... except that it was a little bit too much on the rare side, despite out explicit request to the waiter that we didn't enjoy rare meat.
Apart from that, it was very good, the wine choice had a good price / quality ratio, and service was available even after 3PM.
Good place!

Earned a place on my "to visit" list related to Guimarães!
