Great restaurante right in the center of the city - Edit

This is a restaurant with rotative dishes.
The food is tasty and with small amount of grass. Usually the plates have rice (basmati or brown), vegetables and salad (all optional).
They don't use eggs on any dish, but use milk or cheese, but since the dishes are made there, they usually can prepare some of them vegan, you can ask for it.
The price is cheap and the deserts are great (some are vegan).
It is Highly recommended.

Pros: 3+ different dishes every day, Vegan options, Cheap but tasty

Cons: Small space, usually is full after 12:30 for lunch, Don't accept reservations.

Homemade Food for an Unexpensive Prince - Edit

Gosto Superior is the vegetarian restaurant in Braga I go to the most. It is super cheap and the food is excellent, it has that homemade feeling to it. There are three different dishes each day and you can choose between a small plate and a big plate, both generously filled. The tea is on the house (it also changes with the day). You can add desert for more 1,90 euros.
The enviornment is great, calm and with a jazz-like music playing on the background. The staff is very nice. The place is very small and is usually full, so you may have to wait - but it's worth it!
They don't use eggs but they do use dairy in some dishes and desserts so you have to make sure the waiter understands you're vegan. Sometimes I have the feeling he's not too sure wether something is actually vegan or not, though. There's always a vegan option and you can take the food home.
Also, keep in mind it gets a little more expensive if you're having dinner.

Pros: cheap, excellent food, great enviornment

Cons: no menu, vegan dishes aren't well identified, you may have to wait

cozy - not - Edit

2017 update - Not going there again. The guy who works there made very rude comments to me and a friend for no good reason...

I went there twice recently. I think it has a good and quiet atmosphere, both times the staff was friendly and the food was delicious and more that we could eat. I think they offer a good service to tourists since I saw some there, but I can't be totally sure about it.
The price without drink (the tea is free) is @ 5€ and with dessert @ 7€. I found the big downside is not having a menu. The waiter comes to your table, tells you what the 3 dishes for the day are, and you have to decide right there.
The restaurant was almost full the two times I went there, and seats probably 40 people.

Inexpensive good food - get there before 8:30 - Edit

Had 2 nights in Braga. Went to this lovely restaurant 1st night and back again on the 2nd. Choice of 3 mains (big or small plate) and 4 desserts. Food was lovely, atmosphere friendly, service great and very inexpensive (€13 for 2 small plate meals which was plenty big enough + 2 desserts. Thought they'd made mistake but no -
€13 for the 2 of us! Get there early it's usually full by about 8:30

Pros: Very reasonable price, Choice of small or large, Food full of flavour

Cons: Cash only but, at that price, it's no problem

Amazing food - Edit

The food was amazing and remarkably inexpensive! Neat atmosphere in the restaurant too. Despite the food being great I was disappointed that the MAJORITY of the menu options were vegetarian rather than vegan -- there was only 1 vegan main on offer the night we were there and only 2 of the 6 desserts. Perhaps we were just there on a more vegetarian-oriented menu night, but I would love for them to explore alternatives to cheese and butter in future in order to offer more vegan options. Overall I would still highly recommend!

Pros: Excellent food, Reasonably priced

Cons: Mainly vegetarian (dairy)

So delicious! - Edit

While staying in Braga, we stopped here two times. The staff was super friendly and told us what we could eat as a vegan. The first time we had sautéed tofu with zoodles, veggies and rice. The second time we had a seitan "beef" with no cheese, salad, rice and veggies. For desert, we had vegan apple pie & coconut flan. It's also a cute small restaurant. This place is absolutely delicious & I would definitely come here again next time I visit :)

Super friendly and delicious - Edit

This little vegetarian restaurant does not have menu. It is a very nice small place with cool music and at a good location that is very easy to find (can definitely not be said for other veggie restaurants in Braga). It raised some eyebrows when I asked for a vegan option but the staff was super friendly and helpful and in no time they cooked some delicious fried eggplant in tomato sauce, sautéed broccoli and mushrooms, brown rice and small salad for me. Oh, and they have vegan Apple pie :) You will also be served tea immediately upon arrival. They place was quite busy when I was there and the others all seemed locals which is always a good sign. Okay the English of the owners wasn't quite that good, but hey, we got by pretty well. Would definitely come here again.

Friendly restaurant - Edit

Vegetarian but with possibility to transform the dishes into vegan options, just ask the staff.

A bit crowded during lunch in a workday, but still it was a very pleasant meal!

Pros: Free teapot, Friendly staff, Good food

Small, friendly restaurant - Edit

This small but friendly restaurant near the center of Braga came in handy for me and my wife to have a satisfying vegan meal in the North of Portugal.

As stated by other reviewers, as soon as you sit at the table you are offered a teapot with an infusion. The waiter then explains you the three different dishes for the day. We asked which dishes were vegan and the waiter was able to recommend two dishes (by adapting the ingredients of one of them).

The portions were very satisfying and included a nice variety of side foods such as salad, vegetables, and whole rice as well as the "main course" itself.

It's a pity that the restaurant is a bit small and can crowded during lunch hours, but we were very satisfied with the tasty food! It's a good place to go if you're in a hurry and don't really intend to linger, though.

Pros: Tasty food, Good portions, Quick service

Cons: Small restaurant, Can be a bit busy during lunch

Gosto Superior - Edit

This is really a wonderful place. The staff is very welcoming, they bring you a large pot of tea before you order (you can order other drinks if you want), which I thought was a nice gesture. The location is good, on a quiet square in the city centre, and it's nicely furnished. They have 3 dishes to choose from every day. I ate there two days in a row, and the menu was different the 2nd day. You get a huge plate of food, which also contains salads, hot vegetables and rice or couscous. It was really quite cheap, very good value! The place is running well, most other customers were locals, which is also a good sign. I really love this place, I would most definitely recommend it.

Pros: welcoming staff, good food, excellent value
