“Delicious surprise”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

Our guide (from the excellent Different Portugal) took us here so we weren't quite sure what to expect, whether he was just taking business to his friends, or truly taking us to a good place for lunch. We could not have been more surprised and pleased by the whole meal and warm atmosphere. The olives and cheese were very good as was the soup/stew of fish and rice and the cod and potatoes. Now back to the soup/stew. It was customized to our preferences in seafood when our guide called ahead, and may be the best fish and rice soup/stew we ever tasted. Lobster, shrimp, other wonderful flavours and a broth that was exquisite (for the uninitiated, get used to shrimp with the heads on). If you enjoy the excellent start of cheese, olives and a few other delectable treats, the soup/stew is plenty for two and we couldn't even finish the second dish of delicious cod. Our guide did himself proud by taking us here for a very good meal at a fair price for such fresh seafood. Next time we will visit in the evening when we have time to explore their menu even more.

“windy outside, delicious inside”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

we could not have asked for more on a windy autumn afternoon. after a magnificent walk in praia da ursa with my family, we stopped in Azóia to look for a restaurant. luckily we chose Pão de Trigo! we were welcomed by a delicious looking 'bacalhau' in the grill and a cosy room heated by a firewood place. rustic decor but not excessive... we started with well seasoned olives and good bread (from the region I think!), followed by soup - quite good my 'caldo verde'! but the best was undoubtably the 'wild boar stew'... the meat melt in our mouthes leaving our papillae crazy with the flavour! the dish was good for two with the soup. loved it and recommend it to everybody. my daughter was enchanted by the fire :o) and the waiters were efficient and friendly. I will go back!!

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

We visited this lovely restaurant 3 times and enjoyed the Portugese dishes. The food (fish and meat) is well prepared and very tasty, big portions. In case we return to Azoia we will definately visit this restaurant and it's very kind staff again!
