It might not draw you in with fancy flashing lights or even an in-your-face sign reminding folks that it exists, but once you’re inside you won’t forget where to find it for your inevitable return.  Aside from serving some of the most delicious bacalhau (cod) in the neighborhood, they’ve got a great recipe for the beef lombo com castanhas (loin with chestnuts) that will melt in your mouth. Keep in mind, the menu changes daily, so these items might not be available when you decide to venture there. You can count on cooked-to-perfection sides to accompany your main dish and some pretty stellar desserts to wrap things up. The lovely green-canopied terrace out back is a fantastic spot to wow a group of friends with some cheap al-fresco dining.

Heading out of Porto was extremely easy, proving the “no rides in Lisbon” theory correct, and we managed to make the roughly 150km to Braganca in three quick hops. It was once we arrived that it proved a little harder.
