Fantastic view, great service!

Great view of the town. The service was very good despite staff having to deal with serving food and helping guests with their luggage.

History and elegance wrapped into one, with excellent service and food. Reserve one of the four window tables in the restaurant if you can.

We are independent travellers in our 60s who are travelling for several months, so to make the money last longer we don't eat expensive meals out. However, every now and then we treat ourselves to a 'posh' night out. We liked Obidos and its castle so much that we decided this was to be one of those nights. We were... More

I thought it would be a nice experience to eat in a castle even if it was going to be overpriced. I was fine with all that but the food was really, really mediocre. Other reviews mention that and it's true. If you still want to do this, just order something very light. The waiter was very professional. Our table... More

We had a fantastic dinner in The most beautiful restaurant in Obidos. The Castelo is "the" place to be in Obidos. The wines were exceptional and well priced. Try the Pera Manca, a wonderful white assamblage and Poliphonia, the Best red I had in Portugal. I would strongly recommend these Restaurant 120%

Arrived late and decided to eat at the Pousada. I did read the reviews but... Try to miss this overpriced establishment. Service was attentive but the kitchen missed everything but the soups.

The restaurant setting is amazing. It is in the old castle sitting on top of the hill. We had this amazing view from the top. We had lunch there. The food was quite good. We ordered the octopus and a pork dish. Both were excellent. This was quite literally our most expensive meal in two weeks of visiting Portugal. We... More

Eight elderly golfers visited this establishment for dinner as part of the gourmet package in the area. Dinner and local wines were inclusive and prepaid. Initially the head waiter tried to challenge the wine aspect.
