Best moqueca in Trancoso!

As suggested from the owner of the Pousada where we stayed (Som do mar), here you can find the best moquecas. We ate the one with shrimps, camarao, really tasting and well done. Waiters were very fast and kind with us and the atmosphere is amazing. You cant miss it if you are in Trancoso!

This restaurant has friendly service, charming decor, and is located in the heart of the Quadrado. On this particular day we wanted to have some steak. Their filé mignon was really delicious. I really recommend this one!

In the Quadrado square, lighted with candles, very tasty creole food at reasonable prices. Tables set under a huge tree decorated with lanterns. Very romantic atmosphere.

The shrimp rizotto is terrible! I really don't recommend. Just avoid going there. Only the atmosphere is good. It's cheaper than others, but it's not good.

A little less expensive than average, located right at the heart of the (literally) "Quadrado" square. Charming lighting hung on the surrounding trees. Good food, but my risotto was a bit too salty.

to dine below the stars and trees in the middle of the lovely quadrado in trancoso is really something, even if the food is not that great. we were expecting to taste the best moqueca (african-brazilian fish and seafood stew) ever, but the food was just OK. the service, although friendly, was really slow. but what a place: comfy chairs...
