A Marisqueira de Braga Restaurant | Braga

The word marisqueira isn’t the ideal one if you want to start your Portuguese speaking  experience. There is a tricky letter sequence – ma·ris·quei·ra – which troubles every attempt to get close to its pronunciation. The meaning of the word is a lot simpler: it can refer to the woman or the shop that sells seafood or most commonly the restaurant which serves seafood. Some of the best are normally on the coast – the freshness of the products is essential – if you go to a Marisqueira you should try fish or seafood – after all they proudly bear the name for some reason. Being A Marisqueira de Braga means that you’re in the business for a long time and that you have survived the intense competition – everybody wants the name and the glory.

The prices are fair, families and friends gather there, the restaurant is in the centre, don’t expect easy parking, walking would be a good option after a likely substantial meal.

    Hi José – my mouth’s watering! Thank you so much for providing a native’s eye view of Braga – and for highlighting the good places where locals go.

    On a completely different subject – I saw this review of a new documentary about Nina Simone and thought I’d send it your way http://bit.ly/1Gjl5bj From other reviews it sounds as if the value of the film is Nina herself, not the way the film is made.

    All best wishes

      Elaine, thank you so much for sending me this link, I enjoyed reading the article very much, there’s a lot of things I ignored about Nina’s life – thank you once again!
