History

In the old centre of the beautiful city of Viana do Castelo and two steps away from its emblematical square Praça da República, you will find us: O Laranjeira.

Our premises present, on the ground floor, a referenced restaurant of traditional cuisine, still cooking after the best recipes from Granny Micas; our seven thematic rooms and Granny’s Room are on the 1st and 2nd; and at the Next Door House (connected to the main building) five studio flats are available for lodging.

As the oldest establishment of the city, the Laranjeira family – in its third generation of management – decided for a makeover of the old inn telling stories about the family and depicting customs while recalling traditions of Viana.

Francisco Laranjeira and his Maria – Granny Micas – arrived in 1946 to Viana do Castelo and nowadays, at the age of 94, Granny still wanders through the house greeting our visitors. Granpa is still an inspiration for those that came next, José Laranjeira (son) and I, Helena Laranjeira (granddaughter).

From a regional eatery to a restaurant of reference, from Moderna Inn to Laranjeira Inn and Restaurant, it took over 70 years dedicate to serve all those that honoured us with their visit. And so we intend to keep on writing down all the many stories of a long life.

If I am not fooled by my blood

as fantasy deceives

we shall go to Viana

Oh, my any day love

Oh, my any day love

we shall go to Viana

if I am not fooled by my blood

we shall go to Viana

Poem from Pedro Homem de Melo

Restaurant

We aim to “tradinnovate”!
Over the years we have been improving our kitchen and we understood that it is possible to respect tradition, implicit in old recipes simplicity, without hindering the influence of new trends.

A more careful presentation, choosing healthier cooking processes and offering a menu that covers different diets, accomplishes this influence. Thus, we bet on a heterogeneous team - by age diversity and gender - sharing knowledge, allowing us to continue making history for another 70 years!
