O Albertino is a nice typical restaurant to go with family and friends, the food is tasty and very well served. Later, you can go sightseeing the awsome landscapes in Folgosinho. Warning, you may need to make reservations because its full everytime.

My husband and I took our teenaged son for lunch here as it has great ratings on Trip Advisor. We never got a bite - decided to leave due to the shocking rudeness of the owner of the restaurant! We had enjoyed a marvelous couple of days in Serra Da Estrela and found the people to be exceptional everywhere we... More

In the center of a small village near Serra da Estrela, offers a 5-plate buffet (with service) of traditional Portuguese food. Good local appetizers. Experience is improved if you sleep over in one of the available houses... you can enjoy - and eat and drink - more if you do this. Only the restaurant? Rating-4 if you have to travel... More

You dont choose anything! You eat all the 5 main plates and the apeteziers that they offer. You cant miss it :) take a walk around the village after lunch. Dont forget to make a reservation.

For some years now I´ve been planning to go here. I´ve heard so many good comments that my expectations were very high. Maybe that´s the main reason why I felt a little bit disappointed. Don´t get me wrong, the place is very nice, the food is good and plentiful, and the service very efficient. Still, O Albertino didn´t earned a... More

My father was born here and I'd never think that Folgosinhp would cater world-class gastronomy... But they do, in their own way. Albertino's mother owned a Taberna so the family has roots in the business, but Albertino grew it to a whole different level. He serves probably over 1000 meals on a Saturday. Now let me tell you how it... More

I don't even know where to start this review. I guess the proper word is pittoresque. It is an experience that every tourist should have. All you can eat, and I mean it, for 16 euro. Wine and dessert included. Four types of meat, all Portuguese country style, and sausages and cheese and, wow... Not exactly sophisticated and you will... More
