“Authentic, friendly and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

This place is in a small town off obidos but so worth the drive. Quaint old restored house turned into a well serviced resto. Food is delicious, fresh and the owners are very knowledgeable and helpful. Fridays nites they have live music.

“Charming authentic Portuguese restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2013

Poco dos Sabores is a charming and quirky Portuguese restaurant in the village of Usseira which is in the hills overlooking the historic town of Obidos. The restaurant, originally an ancient farm building, has stone walls and still has its original well inside. The two owners of the restaurant are Joachim and his sister Angela. Joachim runs the restaurant whilst Angela presides over the kitchen. Their cuisine is at its best in the dishes that are typical of the region - the black pork is always cooked to perfection and served with "migas" a traditional side dish of breadcrumbs, beans, cabbage and seasoning. I have also eaten there the most perfectly cooked octopus that I have ever had. Joachim's knowledge of Portuguese wines is extensive and he serves some excellent (and value for money) wines. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming (but do try to book ahead as they are always busy). A visit is well worthwhile (and you may even be able to join my campaign to get the dessert chef - Fatima - to put back on the menu her famous "Pudim Flan" !)

“The most authentic Portuguese restaurant in the area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012

After spending a week in the region of Obidos, we were happy to enjoy our last meal of our vacation here. Poco dos Sabores has a great vibe to it thanks to its quirky decorations, friendly staff and excellent food. Their menu boasted a list of Portuguese dishes that were nowhere to be seen anywhere else in that area of Portugal and that was exactly what we were looking for! Definitely worth a visit!

“Pretty,friendly restaurant.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2012

We ate here twice in july.Its a good combination of good
food,service and atmosphere.It didnt seem quite as busy this year but
im sure it was just a little early in the season.The stone walls and different
floor levels lend it a certain charm-and the old well adds to the quirkiness.
the menu has great choice and for once the little starter dishes offered are worth accepting as some thought has gone into them.The duck,chicken and beef are all good. give it a try.
