A busy touristy restaurant, sit in the plaza and people watch while enjoying local specialities. Price seems high but most of the "specials" are enough for two people. Beware the "tid bits,"...cheese,cod croquets etc served pre your meal,they arnt free!!
Enjoy.

Thank Anne A

We ate outside on a hot day. Plenty of shelter. The food was good value and not expensive. Lots of staff who were very helveey . A good place to stop for simple but good cooking.

This restaurant is one of the last you will find on your visit to Valenca do Minho, a fortress town on the border with Spain. You will need to walk to the furthest part of the road which leads you past the most extraordinary fortifications you are likely to see, but the effort is worthwhile. We were early diners, and chose to take lunch here, so we had the choice of any of the several open-air tables in the open square, shaded by the foliage of trees from the midday sun. All the food was very good, including the "Povlo" in the house-style, an octopus dish I have never had before, all washed own with a very quaffable Vino Verde, the young wine so well made here. Make the effort!

My family is from Valença and every year on vacation I have to visit this gem. I highly recommend the Bacalhau a Bom Jesus off of their menu. It never disappoints. If you catch a beautiful day...sit outside & enjoy the view

Sunny day at Valenca in the north of Portugal. A Fort with border to Spain. You can sit in or out and the menu consists of all things one woul feel like eating. It was pretty full with local and tourists. The owner very friendly.
