The restaurant is right next to the main square and offers about 6 main courses. They all seem genuine Portuguese. When we were there they had 3 different meat stews and a main fish dish. My partner had a wild boar stew and he loved it. Even my wish for a vegetarian dish was no problem and the kitchen made a very delicious, al dente cooked vegetable pasta for me (note more veggies than pasta). Very friendly staff.

Run by brothers, this restaurant is not to be missed. Situated in the countryside area of Loule, Querenca is a place to put on the top of you list of places to visit. The restaurant serves authentic Portuguese cuisine which will satisfy any palette served with good wines. The lamb stew and wild boar stew, in particular, is a must, full of wonderful flavours. You will always receive a great welcome from Miguel and Joe and nothing is too much trouble for them. The atmosphere of the restaurant and the square in Querenca is brilliant with beautiful scenery and a peaceful atmosphere. Well done boys!!

My husband and I have just had a wonderful meal in restaurant Querenca. The lamb stew was beautiful and tender and plenty of it. You certainly don't leave there still hungry. It is run by three brothers and other staff. The service was laid back in a good way, relaxing, enjoyable but efficient. Would certainly go back.

Miguel, Joe and Jorge (the three brothers who run this restaurant) are just fantastic! We love eating their food, it is authentic, rustic and plentiful (did I forget very tasty). We have been in summer (last year) and winter (this year) and whether you eat outside with the lovely views of the church and quietly buzzy atmosphere in the village square or inside the ambiance of the restaurant is just great. They do have a menu but honestly we just ignore that and go with whatever the brothers recommend! And it's always great! They always take great care of our daughter too...whenever we stay in Querenca this is our go to place. Can't wait to go back! (August by the way - Joe book me in for Beef Wellington!).
