You should not expect fish, many salads and various kinds of meat dishes; a great cod fish dish, huge portions; very special and homey... yes very good food and good inexpensive wine list, very busy in a large room; popular with the locals too which is always a good sign!

A place where we can eat like at home. Run by a three generations family, born and raised at the little village where it is located, Castelo Novo.

Lunchtime service was a bit hectic and slow, but dinner was great. Don't miss the pork with pickled cherries - I was sceptical but tried it and LOVED it.

We arrived on a night when the restaurant was closed. But chatting to the daughter earlier at the bar in my best Portuguese, she arranged to open at a specific time to feed our hungry group of four. The mother cooked the most divine meal, home made soup, delicious pork with real French fries and salad. Several choices of home... More

Appearances can be deceiving. Modest place in a charming historical village with nice local cuisine. Hunt meat such as wild hog ('javali') available.
