Todo Perfecto: Food, Setting and Staff

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... read 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

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
