Feels like a warm, welcoming home until the food arrives..... You don't get food like this st home! Creative, caring, clean and absolutely delicious. Best in Trancoso by far .

We dined at Capim Santo twice during our four night stay in Trancoso because we loved the food and the atmosphere so much.It's a gorgeously romantic spot.The mushroom and mozzarella risotto balls are a fabulous starter - real mozzarella,which we found was lacking in Brazil.The seafood mains are divine.I tried the prawns with coconut milk,ginger and coriander and rice on...

The Capim Santo restaurants, here and in S.Paulo, have a name for good food with a Brazilian emphasis. Our visit to the Trancoso restaurante confirmed this reputation but without quite the "wow" that we might have expected. The restaurant opens at 17:00 and we were there shortly after for a late lunch/early dinner. The dining room is spread out in... More

Capim Santo never changes. That is one of its great charms. Its menu allows you to taste a variety of excellent dishes and you can just as easily choose from excellent cerviche, fried rice balls or shrimps as have a full dinner plate.

The title says it all. The restaurant has a nice setting, next to the pousada. The food is good, service excellent and prices as in São Paulo (but this is the same as in the rest of Trancoso). The food is served with thought for visual. Take the fish...

We went here for dinner based on its TripAdvisor ranking (#2 in Trancoso currently) and while it wasn't bad, we were disappointed after having quite high expectations from other reviews. It was expensive, but so are all the good restaurants in Trancoso, so you just need to tolerate that :). The ambience was nice and our waitress was friendly and... More

Very nice place for this "brand" from São Paulo. Service, food and wine are excellent. Good and quiet atmosphere. A bit expensive but it's a nice place for a special treat

I have already gone to Capim Santo in Sao Paulo, but this one in Trancoso is even better. I went there twice in a week. Dont leave without eating the best desert ever: the black and white chocolate mousse.
