This restaurant was recommended to us and is definitely worth the drive. On arrival we were given a selection of starters including pigs' ears, maybe not to everyone's taste but this IS rural Portugal. We noticed that later arrivals received different dishes to us, so...More

O Sapo, from the outside, looks like a rather common roadside restaurant, without any special decoration or fancy looks in general, aside from the fixation on frogs (sapo=frog). However, as soon as you seat and the starters keep flowing in, you realize the food is...More
