“Homemade food served with a genuine welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We happened upon O Hilario on a trip to Viseu, and subsequently saw it was no.1 on TA and mentioned in the Lonely Planet guide!
Plenty of choice of good quality, homemade food, served in decent portions by the couple who own it. They were genuinely friendly and happy to chat to us. Worth seeking out.

“Nice homemade Portuguese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The environment was very familiar and the service was excellent. The food is really nice and it is all typically Portuguese. It was like having lunch at my grandmothers house. Loved it and I'll go back ;D

“Nice and friendly service with cosy atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

I loved this restaurant. The menu with the hand-writting, the lady who talks with full of love about their dishes, the nice service and the cheap prices. It has so cosy atmosphere and good food.

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a small family owned restaurant. With the help of the owners grandchild...we were able to speak and translate between English and Portuguese on all subjects. Great food...we had fish and squid. Great carafe of house wine...and so reasonable!

“Delicious portuguese food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This simple and unpretentious family restaurant is very cozy with a friendly service. The food is typically Portuguese and very good (main dishes, desserts, etc). The price is a real bargain...
