We're visiting the first w/e of September and are staying in the Quinta Jardins do Lago. We've planned a special dinner in the hotel on Saturay which leaves a couple of nights to eat locally. Besides knowing we're up a seriously steep hill, we have no idea where we are. (But I think there's a bus runs up there)
Can anybody suggest anywhere off the main drags serving straightforward local fayre or are all the restaurants in one or two streets serving tourist-style menus or in big hotels, in which case we'll just take pot luck?
It's difficult when you only have a weekend, want to do a couple of half day trips out and don't have much time to suss things out, so would appreciate pointing in the right direction.
Many thanks in advance.
