The food at Café Snack is good - it looks like you are eating at a traditional portuguese house. The service is ok and the prices are very fair.

We enjoyed all the restaurants, recommended by TripAdvisor, in tourist filled coastal towns. This little family restaurant with its home cooked meals was a pleasant surprise. Huge portions,excellent service and everything tasted great. The price was also a fraction of what we paid elsewhere. Would highly recommend. Beside the Big Church!😃

This restaurant is outside the city but worth a short walk. Reservations are necessary. Good service from friendly staff in informal environment. High quality food and lots of it. One entree is enough to feed two people as it comes with chips and salad. Iberico pork (all forms) and monkfish stew were very good. Seafood is brought in fresh daily.... More

Absolutely delicious! We ordered off the menu (not the "plates of the day") and we tried: squid, seabass, grilled beef and Portuguese beef. All of these dishes tasted just like a home cooked meal & they were all an extremely generous portion. On the side also comes a salad, rice & piping hot French fries. Very friendly service as well.... More

This restaurant is well worth the 15 min. walk from within the walls of Obidos. The menu has a good range of fish and meat, with simple dishes which are very well prepared. Over 2 occasions, the lamb chops and fish were outstanding. The main dishes are served with salad, rice and fries, so you will not leave hungry !... More

Visited again recently with friends. We all ordered the Lamb Chops. Cooked to perfection. All the accompanying side dishes were too. I do take my Own Mint Sauce which I shared with the table behind us who also were having the Lamb. Excellent service, always friendly and they make sure Everybody is happy with the meals. Great value meals.

I have been dining out in the Obidos region for 12 years - I can't believe I hadn't found this little gem sooner. It's a simple, basic restaurant - (the modest name 'Snack Bar' really lets it down!) situated behind the large church just to the north of Obidos on the road to Caldas - but the food is great,...

Can't recommend this restaurant highly enough, if you are hungry and in the mood for great home style Portuguese grub.It is understandably busy so you may have to chill over your vino Verde while the staff race around everyone. It is all the tastier for the waiting! and you are on holiday,aaaaH! We will definitely b back.

We have been to a few family owned local businesses in Portugal and this one is just average. Maybe it is worth a detour from the touristy places of Obidos but we found service and food hit and miss. The calamari was not cleaned properly and bland while the Portuguese steak was good. The wine carafe is generous and food... More
