Very Pleasantly Surprised

Ate here on our last night in Obidos. It didn't look much but the food was really good - I had a superb steak in port sauce. All five of us had a very good meal. Service was however a little cold and off hand.

This restaurant was not our first choice when reviewing restaurants to dine at in Obidos, but it ended up being the Best restaurant on our entire trip in Portugal. We are not food snobs, nor are we wine connoisseurs, we just want a very good meal for the money. The menu, the price list, and the immediate smell of food... More

I was in this restaurant last March and I liked it so much that when I went back to Óbidos in October I decided to have dinner there again. But this time I was disappointed. The food is still good but I didn't like one of the waitresses attitude. We were 4 and I was still finishing my main course... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant just across the street and we arrived 10 minutes before their advertised closing of 10pm. The staff were courteous, friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. The wine list staggering. Hard to fault, really. Definitely highly recommended!

We ate here on our second night in Obidos, having eaten at the Pousada the night before. We thought that might take something away from this. The Pousada was a different class but this restaurant is very good in its own right. Some reviews on here say the staff are rude but that wasn't our experience. At first our waitress... More

The food was very good and 'rude' is a strong word, but the unfriendliness of the service really spoiled the whole experience. The waiters have a strange habit of turning their back on you when you are trying to communicate with them. We felt like someone was doing us a big favour.

THE FACTS. 1) Arriving there at about 21:30 with our 2 sons (19 and 16) and daughter (3 1/2), we were put under pressure to take our orders. Our oldest son could not order in comfortable condition. 2) The waitress let me taste the white wine, but then immediately served my wife without paying attention to me validating the bottle...

O Alcaide is located in Obidos on the main street (Rua Direita) The map on the Tripadvisor site shows it on Rua Direita over 100 km away just south of Aveiro. Worse still, if you look up Obidos restaurants on Tripadvisor, the restaurant does not appear. If you know the name Alcaide you will get to the right page, and... More

Extremely moderate prices, great view, restaurant is on 2nd floor upstairs. Nice balance of meats and vegetables on the same plate. In 2014 a complete meal for 4 with wine was 80 Euro. Owner is very nice, appears to be family run. Owner speaks Portuguese, English French at the minimum. Highly recommended refuge from super touristic restaurants in a town... More

Tasty, good service, reasonable prices. We tried fish only and a simple wine. The experience is definitely positive.
