"Leitão" is one of the great portuguese gastronomic treasures which you cannot miss. If you have a car, it's very easy to go there. (National road) It's not expensive, and staff are really nice people. It's a safe choice. Trust me

Saw this place enroute to Bussaco Palace hotel and after checking in and seeing the poor state of our room there we decided not to eat in the hotel restaurant but instead to go here. So glad we did! Yes it's huge but it's relaxed, service is excellent and food is great as any decent churrasqueira should be. It's not... More

They have a lot of different dishes, I went there every time I come to this region, the food is excellent and the desserts also, everything is home made. It's one of my favorite restaurants.

Ate here 3 times. I have the suckling pig which is always great. My daughter tries other things. Deep fried octopus on one occasion, kid stew another. Food always well cooked and very enjoyable. Portions are quite large.

One of the best suckling pig I ever ate! The restaurant is big but but comfortable at the same time,with a good parking place this restaurant offers good service and excellent food, apart of the piglet I recommend a dessert "Molotoff" with a fantastic cream of soft eggs with cinnamon *****

The grilled codfish (bacalhau na brasa) is very good. I was not impressed by the suckling pig (leitão à bairrada). The place is huge and maybe because of that staff is too busy to smile or even make sure guests understand what they are saying.

We tried a few other places in the area, but nothing can hold a candle to this place! Fantastic food. Rolls piping hot from the oven, professional and highly efficient service. Best chicken I have tasted in years. Can't recommend it enough. Plenty of parking, and right off the main road from Mealhada to Luso.

Thank portfigs
