This was the best meal with an idilic atmosphere I have ever had. The team of the Restaurant at the Pousada exceded in simpathy and kindness. The meal was superb and I will definitly come back again and again. For those who want to have an unforgetable moment dreaming about holidays in such a place like Óbidos i will definitly... More

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

My friend and I climbed the stairs to this beautiful restaurant fully expecting to have a great and expensive lunch-a real treat for ourselves . We were preceded up the stairs by a couple. When the 4 of us arrived at the foyer to the restaurant we noticed it was empty. The first couple preceded into the dining room and... More

Wait staff crashing around throwing silverware into drawers, banging piles of dishes, the waiter pushing the most expensive wines on the menu, the staff running around like crazy when there are only ten people in the room... And this is supposed to be one of the finest restaurants in the country? Ordinary food, ordinary service, ordinary everything except the lovely... More

We had chosen not to stay at the pousada but wanted to at least have dinner there. Glad we did. We were welcomed and seated in a lovely room; no one indicated that our two and three year olds were not welcome. In fact the servers were polite, professional and quite friendly, commenting on one of the girl's bilingualism. Fortunately,... More

As a general rule restaurants which can take advantage of a good view do not bother too much with the quality of their food. This restaurant is a classic example of that rule. It is located above the picturesque town of Obidos. We had booked the so called "romantic package". This is a fixed menu which commences with a brown... More

Exquisite food, excellent service, short (but well chosen) wine list. Best ambiance in Obidos, of course. Both duck and roast kid entrees were delicious. Expensive? Sure. But I would not hesitate to recommend it.

My best girl and i visited Obidos on a private tour for just a few hours and decided to return again on Public bus a few days later. This walled city has so much charm and is so very photogenic. Entering through the "s" shaped Porta da Villa decorated with royal azulejo tile we were transported back to medieval times.... More

We arrived a little early for lunch at Pousada do Castelo (around 12h15). We were curtly told that the restaurant was not open yet. No suggestion to stay and wait at the bar with a drink ... nothing Given that attitude, we left and went to have lunch elsewhere.
