Great food and ambiance! We try the pastels of queijo, bolinhos de camarao, robalo fish. Everything great. Good service and live music.

We were told by our pousada owner that this was the best food in Trancoso (without costing you your home) and he was not wrong. Set in an ambient setting just off the Quadrado, the stalwart of the Trancoso food scene serves up interesting and tasty seafood dishes (not to mention delicious steak!) at a reasonable cost (bare in mind...

Capim Santo is an institution in Trancoso and for good reason. The food is delicious, the setting is lovely and the staff is amazing. I ate there several times during my three week stay in Trancoso and each time I returned the staff made me feel like a good friend coming home. They even delivered a meal one night to... More

Charming staff, food very good but not international city standard! Food pricey but good in comparison to a couple of other restaurants that we tried. We were there with our 3 adult children and we all enjoyed the ambience and various food choices. Good atmosphere ....

We had a fantastic dinner with nice dishes, which was very tasteful and this in the fantastic Garden just a few steps from Quadrado. The service was very good and very attentive. A musician played nice brasilian Music. The only negative was that we had to pay 18 Real for the Music, which was not announced before it was added... More

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
