The location, at the foot of an ancient castle, and on a river, is amazing. The food is all local, mountain dishes that are made in a long standing tradition. So, the pig's ear and liver may not be for everyone, but there is so much to try on the menu that this out of the way gem is well... More

For dessert a delightful caloric... More

Typical "rustic" cuisine, served in stunning surroundings. Mine Host Antonia always cheerfully on hand to assist. We have eaten their on average 8 or 9 times a year since moving to Lousa 5 years ago. Extremely good food and good wines, perfect ambience and very good value for money. It's the one place we take all our visitors to for... More

We arrived hungry, with nothing to eatt, on a sunday afternoon. They were open, but refused to give us even some bread or anything because they were full. Neither human kindness nor money could afford them. It would have been acceptedable if there was any other place that could feed us in a 2 km range. I have been here... More

I had dinner at "O Burgo" and I totally agree with other TripAdvisor users comments. The food was great (I've had deer with potatoes and vegetables and a good selection of local starters, m girlfriend ate baccalà), the wine of the house was enjoyable and the location very nice. We ate a lot and we spent only 30 euros, 15... More

We basically begged and were still turned away. We ended up going to the minipreco about 2km away and returning to the area for a... More
