Best "Bacalhau com Natas" ever!

In Miami there is this amazing Portuguese restaurant called Old Lisbon and we usually go there on special occasions. We love Portuguese food. We found this restaurant in Viseu on our way from Salamanca to OPorto. It is very close to the highway. We had the best "bacalhau com natas" ever! Truly... read more

A restaurant well located with good food, that has excelent prices for the quality of the food. Recommend the "Arroz de Cabidela", but attention that this dish is tempered with chicken blood that gives the unique taste

The English menu we were given had no prices. Our driver happened to be our guest that evening so she was given a standard menu. I said to her mine doesn't have any prices. Hers did have prices plus it had pages mine didn't have. When the waiter was asked about this he said they didn't have time to put... More

Perfect restaurant to have a lunch/dinner when travelling by car: The location is right on a exit of A25. It was the second time I go there and it mantains a high quality food (deserts included) at a good price.

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.

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
