Good restaurant with good food, some staff speak English, prices ok, very small car park you can easy get blocked in, tables in the garden with nice romantic atmosphere.

Have visited this restaurant over the past 4 years and every time a winner. Once again had the tripe Portuguese style and my wife the baby squid, both 1/2 doses (Portuguese version of plate for one); both excellent. Went again a couple of nights later and we shared a full dose of baby calamari with roasted potatoes; divine !! Service... More

Staying at Casa Agricola de Levada for only one night, we were directed here by Sonia. By road it is a couple of kilometers, but if you find the back way out of the property it is a 5 minute walk, albeit slightly uphill. Unpretentious from the outside, once past the modern porch there are three tables next to the... More

Traditional food restaurant with a very nice environment. It has a summer terrace where you can dine in perfection. The kitchen is regionally inspired and it was here that were born the famous "Tripas aos molhos"!

We were staying at Casa Agricola da Levada a few minutes walk from the restaurant. We had been recommended to eat here and were really glad to have been guided in this way. We have to confess that we know virtually no Portuguese but we were able to select fantastic veal, pork and beef dishes. The waiter was really helpful... More

There are a few things you cannot put into words. One of those is my experience in Chaxoila. Nice ambiance, very nice staff, and amazing traditional portuguese cuisine (which is already one of the best in the whole World)...

The restaurant looked good, and was famous for the rolled tripe (which I don't like), so we had high hopes that it would serve good regional food. My dad asked for the tripe, my mother and I the roasted kid, and my sister the beef steak. The tripe was apparently good, and so was the steak (though not great), but... More
