Pretentious attempt by staff to speak English resulted in us both being brought the same main dish. When we attempted to correct the waitrose, she argued back, albeit politely. We had waited over half an hour so couldn't be bothered to send one of them back. So we both had a white fish stuffed with nuts accompanied by a cream... More

Nice place, great food, good service. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in Trancoso (try the fish/prawn combo with Thai green curry, fabulous!) Of the places we tried in Trancoso, this was probably the best

Are you in Trancoso looking forward to have a pleasant time with your friends for good drinks and awesome food? Skip the high-profile list of "summer places" and go straight to Capim Santo. Make a reservation before; they have such a great table service and it is a lot related to their organization booking tables in advance. Everything in delicious,... More

Compared to most of trances restaurants, Capim Santo put an effort to offer a more modern kind of cousine. You will find very tasty and helthy dishes created from local ingredients. There is an interesting selection of caipirinhas if you look for an alternative to wine. Another differential is that Capim Santo accept reservations witch is not that common in... More

Our favorite restaurant on the quadrato. We loved sitting at the bar and listening to great music, brazilian. Food was excellent and we ate here both our first and last night. It is also a Pousada and looks lovely.

Nice food. Good to go in family, friends, alone, romantic date. Despite it was close to New Year's eve, with a lot of people in town, the restaurant is very organized and we had a great experience.

From the lighting to the food to the wonderful staff, this place will not disappoint. Best overall dining experience we have had since we arrived in Brazil a week ago. Love wait staff. Our server even gave us a little Portuguese lesson, wanting to practice her English. The bartender made us a custom cocktail serving it to us reminiscing of... More
