This was a good surprises. We began with a good local white wine "Quinta de S. Francisco". They have a good codfish. The service is very good.

This was one of the first restaurants we happened across in obidos just inside the castle walls. We had a mixed salad and a steak as our mains. The salad was simply but plentiful and well presented. The steak was over the top, served rare with a disappointing pepper sauce containing whole pepper corns with a roasted Apple, this could... More

The restaurant is laid out nicely and the service was very friendly. Unfortunately our feeling was that the food just wasn’t that good. It felt like they were just trying to do too much, combining too many ingredients on the plate in a way that didn’t feel very harmonious. It was also quite expensive for Portugal, though in fairness I... More

My husband and I ate at this small restaurant with our tour group. This was not an average tour group dinner. The food was a mix of traditional and modern dishes. We enjoyed the traditional bean soup, duck breast, cod in papillote and creme brûlée and a wonderful red wine. Very Good!!!!!There was a lovely terrace.

This is a small restaurant with very good service and excellent food. We tried their asparagus soup, grilled salmon in dill sauce, cod fish, and coconut pudin, and they were all very well prepared. It is a great place for an intimate dinner. Their wine list is also pretty good. We chose a wine from the region: Quinta do S.... More
