Restaurante Nacional is quite a formal restaurant along a street close to the old city gates and the City Hall. My meal was excellent and was great value considering its quality and that of the restaurant. For €18.15 I had soup of the day (pumpkin and spinach), bread, a plate of good fat black olives, a large slice of grilled... More

This restaurant was recommended by local, if locals dine here it must be good, and it was. The service was quick and our waiter was very attentive even on a very busy Saturday night. Really enjoyed all of our dishes we had the codfish, steak and octopus. Prices are reasonable overall experience was very good and would return.

Good food, good price, very friendly waiter. They have a tourist translated menu in multiple languages. If you know Portuguese, take the portuguese menu, cause it has extra items, not on the translated menu.

This was a cozy little restaurant downtown that was recommended to us by the hotel staff. We really enjoyed the large, tasty serving of Pampo - a fish with which I was not familiar. The service was attentive and the menu was clear and precise. It seemed like a family place, it was busy and there was lots of talking... More

Two very good meals at Restaurant Nacional Staff friendly and efficient and tolerated my poor Portuguese although they spoke perfect English to others. Good quality food well cooked. Good local (Pico) wines. Great cheese with banana for desert. I love the serving of "quejo fresco" (white goats cheese) with a spicey pepper sauce as an appetiser - appears to be... More
