We went to O Burgo on the recommendation of Villa Pedra, where we were staying, and it lived up to our expectations. The setting was superb. Our window table had views of the castle high above. We shared a mixed platter to start, which was large and very tasty. For our main course we both had... read more

We didn't know anything about this restaurant, but were driving around after visiting Conimbriga. The setting is spectacular and you can explore on foot, up a pathway to a tiny chapel. The fish is excellent and the service is very friendly. Lovely place for lunch.

Very nice staff, great selection of "petiscos" for starters. The portions are big so chose carefully and ask the waiters advice. The Cozido na Broa is a must try!!! The atmosphere just makes you feel at home.

In a beautiful setting amongst the trees and valleys of the Serra de Lousa, restaurant O Burgo has a well derived reputation for excellent food and wine. It specialises in game and local dishes.

We went to Lousã to take a walk in “Aldeias de Xisto” (which we loved). The Castle of Lousã is unexpectedly in a top of a mountain within a valley. Must see to understand. And it is worth. Right next door, this restaurant has an abundant food, traditional and very well cooked. I loved the wild boar with chestnuts and... More

Let's start with the location: can you imagine a better place to eat when you are in middle of precious mountains with a beautiful swimming pool? The Burgo offers all this and more. Excellent meat and fish, good wine list and supreme good dessert (pyjama). We had stewed boar with chestnuts, grilled ox with migas and chicken with mushrooms. All... More

We enjoyed the taste of Portugal and were amazed at the meal. A taste of everything was a great introduction to Porguese cuisine. The staff were incredibly friendly. It was a little far from our hotel, but was worth the drive.

If you like mountain food, like goat, deer and boar you have to try the food in this restaurant. The quality is very good, the staff is very friendly and the view is very beautiful. This restaurant is in the midlle of the mountain.
