Fodor's Expert Review Café Oriental

$$ Guimarães Portuguese

On the iconic square of Largo do Toural, this venerable eatery serves tasty regional dishes–-the bacalhau baked with cheese and potato slices and the breaded octopus are fantastic–-at prices that won't break the bank. If you're not headed to the town of Miranda do Douro, take the chance to sample posta à mirandesa, Portugal's tenderest steak, best washed down with a glass of the house wine.
