Having dinner (or lunch) at Hilário is like going back in time to those days of childhood when we all loved our grandmother's meals, full of flavour, prepared with lovely fresh products, and with the right seasoning. We had the stewed lamb and the fried octopus. Needless to say that the octopus was tender and the lamb was exquisite with a subtle pinch of piri-piri. The owners are gentle and always like to talk bit with clients, creating a familiar and informal atmosphere.
Couldn't be better...

The grandson Daniel translated the menu for us and then proceeded to entertain us all night introducing us to the owners and his mother. The food and drink was excellent and the prices fantastic. Daniel wants to take over the restaurant when he is older and I am sure will carry on the real tradition.

We sought out the restaurant as it was rated no 1 in Viseu on TA. It was worth it. Situated on a narrow hill in old Viseu the authenticity hits you as soon as you walk in. The wooden decor, traditional tables and seating all added to the homely atmosphere. The food was very good. Very simple, but genuine. Do try the home made nut gateaux and the fresh cheese with quince sauce for dessert. A carafe of local red wine was a good complement to the meal. The price was very reasonable. The family who own and run the place were very charming and we had a really interesting conversation with the son on his aspirations for Viseu and his family restaurant.

Very tasty home-cooked food, friendly and helpful owners, and unbelieveable prices: we had a three-course meal with wine for two for under 25 euros! Truly unbeatable.
