Nice setting, professional service but very average over-priced food

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... read more

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

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. Whilst trip advisor revues indicate a number of good points about location when staying, there appear to be repeated reservations about food quality and price.... More

We were on a golf holiday which included a gourmet night at this restaurant. Set up next to the castle it is quite hard to find. Park at the top and just ask because you do not want to miss this. Medieval in its setting and service offers a wide range of dishes to suite all. Perhaps not the cheapest... More

A great location, formal service, the food is ok with local inspiration but not that special. The deserts are better than the rest of the meal.

After reading earlier comments, I was pretty concern when dining here but my concerns were put to rest. We had dinner, service and food was of good quality and met my expectations. The pricing was a bit high compared to the town restaurants but we accepted the fact that this is a hotel (castle) dining outlet. As some guests mentioned,... More
