We stayed and ate here five years ago but, having read some of the recent reviews, I was a bit concerned about dining here again. However I was delighted to find that this time the food was just as good as before. The dining room in the evening is a lovely setting and the service was excellent (it helps that... More

I do think 19€ for a very small ´summer´salad should have been a warning shot! There were michellin stickers around and we (Darling dearest and I) though we would be in for a treat.

The food at this restaurant was very nice but not excellent. If eating here do be aware of the ad-ons. We were given a tasting plate of food together with bread and butter whilst having a pre-dinner drink. We presumed that as we had not ordered them that they were complimentary, however, they were charged to our bill, including separate... More

First let me start by saying the staff was amazing and more than professional and accommodating. There were a few downsides to staying at this pousada. 1. There was no easy way to park close to the pousada due to the Medieval Festival taking place. So walking through town (at least a 15 minutes walk), then finding out we parked... More

Visited Pousada as a group of 8 for a birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived you knew you were somewhere special. Walking up the stone stairs inside the castle walls was an experience in itself. We had a lovely table overlooking the castle walls. The service was attentive and very friendly. We had the castle menu which was excellent... More

We were a family of 5, the restaurant has a beautiful view and staff was very friendly. But the food was so dissapointing!!! The kids had frozen fish finers and my lamb skewer for 25 euro was shocking!!! So sorry for Obidos could have been a added bonus!

We've been to pousada do castelo for lunch. It's a nice place, with a great view - and you're in a more than 800 year old castle. But besides that, there's nothing else. Restaurant was empty, service was ok and the food was expensive and disappointing. I had an aspargus soup that was very thin and we also tried some... More
