Description: Este pequeño restaurante está ubicado en El cuadrado en Trancoso y también en el centro del Arraial do Ajuda. En ambos comimos muy bien, en un lindo ambiente, es servicio buffet y se cobra al peso. Hay mucha variedad, todo muy freso, vistoso y sabroso.Tambien hay una mesa de ensaladas y postres muy buenos.Realmente es un muy buen lugar para comer en la zona, a muy buen precio y en un lindo sitio, atendido con simpatía, seria bueno que lo pudieramos recomendar!!!Gracias, saludos,Sandra

Portinha is a simple kilo restaurant on the quadrado, quite handy when you want to eat something at any time of the day. Food is simple but good and price is fair.

for fast feast (almost a miracle in Trancoso) the Portinha self service restaurant is an oasis among pricey and slow services options of restaurants. Having the meal below a large and wonderful tree in a very typical and simple wooden table is a magical experience for just a few bucks.

Trancoso/Quadrado is expensive but Portinha offers good food at low prices. Pay by weight. All kinds of food, including deserts.

This by kilo place is a budget choice and it is located in the middle of the Quadrado, offering a splendid view and a romantic ambience. Fresh food and changing of the menu every day. What more can you ask for!
