Awesome place, really fine food

The restaurant, in the middle of an alley, consists of several rooms, some open other closed, richly decorated and filled with plants and trees. The staff is very helpful and the dishes have a rich flavor, made with fresh, quality material. Very worth it. Especially by the setting of the sun, at... read more

We went without a reservation and were seated with the notice "you have to be gone by 9pm this table is reserved then". We tried to order drinks but some 3 different waitress came and went none took our order. Finally someone took our drinks and starters that were very nice. Then no one came by, menus on the table...

We were not terrificlaly impressed by Capim Santo - the ourdoorsey restaurant is quite nicely done, all white table cloths but could probably do with a spruce-up and had the unmistakeable ambience of a hotel restaurant. Staff are welcoming and speak some English. But it all went a bit downhill from there for us - we waited nearly an hour... More

What more can I add to the glowing reviews below about our experience at this charming restaurant.  Just steps off the Quadrangle in Trancoso, this was a really nice restaurant that we stumbled into.  We were greeted by a stunningly beautiful hostess who also, believe it or not, spoke quite good English. Unfortunately, she said they were fully booked that... More

I recommend this restaurant for the following reasons: 1) very good seafood. The badejo in all varieties is excellent. The grilled logosta as well. One evening, I could enjoy fresh oysters. You need to be lucky though, because they are rarely on the menue ..and if so, very quickly sold out...but they are truly excellent. And since they are so... More

Had a fantastic meal here on a four night trip to Trancoso. This was the best of the four places we ate at during the trip. English menu was available and the food was seafood focused and tasted great. We had the lobster in the pineapple (which was covered in cheese) and the wrapped fish. Both the dishes were awesome....

The service is excellent in the traditional restaurant of the Quadrado. Live music to relax in a beautiful and carefully taken care setting. We came here twice. Their appetizers and fish dishes are great.

Charming restaurant off the "quadrado" with great cocktails, juices, fish and seafood. Their lobster is a specialty and it was absolutely delicious. Very good service, friendly and efficient. Do not miss it if in Trancoso.
