Fodor's Expert Review O Abocanhado

$$$ Peneda-Geres Portuguese

Worth a trip for its stunning location and prizewinning design alone, this restaurant is also renowned for its regional cuisine. Perched in the Serra Amarela hills, 12 km (7½ miles) from Terras de Bouro, the long building slots into the surrounding slate, its terrace affording panoramic views of the River Homem. Outstanding mains include tender barrosã steak and locally raised kid. The dessert menu has family recipes as well as standards such as pudim abade de priscos (egg-and-almond pudding) and ricotta with pumpkin jam. From Braga, head north to Vila Verde and then upriver toward the Vilarinho das Furnas reservoir.
