Located outside the town of Lousã and up some narrow windy lanes, O Burgo is not the easiest restaurant to find. Although there are signposts! The staff are friendly and the service is good. The food is tasty and the portions are good. It does not come quickly, but that always suggests to me that it is being prepared especially... More

On the way back home from the Serra da Estrela we stumbled on this hidden (literally!) restaurant. It is located near the river in a kind of hole in the woods. We hesitated to engage on the road leading to the restaurant because it was indicated as a death end. But you can actually park your car at the end... More

Food was very tasty and price was reasonable. View out side and the restaurant inside are great. Leave some room for desert too.

This restaurant is located outside of town which in this case is perfect. With a medieval castle in the background and a swimming area in the foreground you can't go wrong. The food is traditional of the region, and the quality and variety are some of the best this area has to offer. The price Is a bargain. In the... More

Nice restaurant beautiful located next to the old fortress in the mountains close to Louša. Kitchen nicely covers the local mountain cuisine. Excellent done, but hearty, so come hungry! Starting from the fortress you can do an excellent circular walk (6km, 3hrs including rest) passing some remote mountain villages. After that you're ready for a good meal at O Burgo.

The food here is tremendously good, and very reasonably priced considering the quality. The grilled octopus dish was the best I've ever eaten, and the portions very large. The service was excellent, too. Very charming atmosphere.

Visited on a Thursday at 8pm. There was remarkably few diners. The restaurant is situated half way up a hill in a narrow wooded river valley. Below is a natural swimming pool and above a small church, all overlooking the medieval castle. One of the waiters spoke English and they had a menu in several languages. The food was plentiful...
