Lechazo is the specialty of the house and in this part of Spain, I recommend you try the dish at Asados Don Jose. The place is small so go close to opening hours. Your host is a friendly man who welcomes you with smiles and great service. We began with a simple green salad that was garden fresh and big enough for two people. Then the lechazo which was roasted to perfection. The portion is easily enough for two people, or even three, so the price is very fair. Finish up with coffee and dessert and you've had a great meal that honours the traditions of Spain. Go slow and enjoy.

We ordered their popular dish, lechazo, (suckling lamb) and it did not disappoint. The server (which could have easily been the owner) was extremely nice. The side dish of a pickled asparagus was good and the desserts were yummy. I think going here while staying in Penafiel or nearby is worth it. We honestly got the meat sweats because we "had" to finish the delicious dish.

Super lamb in the oven. Matching wine as suggested by Jose. Added a salad and some fries but superb prepared lamb and attentive service.

Great food, brilliant atmosphere and helpful enthusiastic owner for whom nothing was too much trouble. The beef and lamb were both top class. Would be my first port of call next time I'm in Penafiel.

We had never visited this village before so we didn´t know how was the restaurant we were going to have dinner in. He offered us smoked sardines with a coat of fresh chopped tomatoe vinaigrette and then we had roasted lamb. Both dishes were gorgeous. The owner was really nice.
