Excellent food, very good service

Restaurant near Viseu centre (10min), with a very good service, excellent food and a very reasonable price. Even in a week lunch, this restaurant is full of clients, which is synonymous of the high standards of this Restaurant. It deserves a 'stop by' if near Viseu.

We ate here after reading reviews on here and it definitely lived up to expectations. Everyone's food was gorgeous and the staff were so friendly. The decor of the restaurant was fab and made the experience that much better. I would definitely recommend having dinner here. Also, it was very reasonably priced.

I've lived not far from this restaurant and always heard people raving about this place. Decided to give it a try. Food was good but nothing that you would be able to make at home. Service was prompt and attentive but we felt rushed by the manager/Owner. I worked in hospitality myself and know exactly the key points to please... More

We stopped at Quinta da Magarenha on our way to Porto. Previous reviews on TripAdvisor influenced our choice which we consider spot-on. As advised, we call in advance to book a table as the restaurant is very popular and is usual crowded. Upon arrival, we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table which was expected. No surprise.

I come here practically every year and this year was no exception. It is always busy so make sure you come early or have a reservation. The main course was very good (beef with mushrooms) and the plate was big enough for two. My parents had rice with octopus and gambas and were very satisfied with their dish. My dessert... More

Let's say it this way: There are as little as 200 to 350 restaurants in Viseu and the only Restaurant I would visit twice in a one week vacation trip to my town would be the Quinta Da Magarenha. Since I was a little boy, we visited the Quinta. With my parents, grandparents, cousins and friends. The Size of the... More

This big restaurant is located outside the city center, 10 min car drive but it well worth the drive. The inconvenient bit is that they do not allow in advance booking so there is normally a 20min wait (at least). It's quite inexpensive for the amount of food and delicious flavor. I personally recommend bacalhau com natas and bifinhos com... More

A very agreable restaurant where you can eat tasty food and not pay much. The staff is very kind, the food is very tasty and in quantity and the space very agreable, the restaurant has a nice garden and the building itself is also very beautiful. But the most important is the food and you'll be very well served if... More

Although I have been to Viseu many times, this was my first visit to Quinta da Magarenha, I strongly recommend you book first to ensure you get a table, we started our meal with traditional Portuguese bread and fresh olives, the hardest part is choosing what you want to eat! only order a full portion if you are sharing your...
