We always go to this traditional little restaurant and usually take the tourist menu which at 12.80 euros for a couvert, soup or salade, main, pudding, coffee and a drink is the best bargain around for the quality of the food. Unlike some of the tourist menus who serve inferior mass produced pate, this place has lovely home made pate.... More

A varied menu and plenty to choose from, including local and more "international" dishes. Definitely give it a try if you like rabbit!

Good restaurant offering good service, good food and good atmoshere. When you have finished your meal go inside and listen to the karaoke, it's not your normal people just having a go but there are some really good singers, very good for passing away a couple of hours after eating.

This very popular restaurant was recommended by the hotel on our first night in Portugal. The food was amazing, and it was suggested that we try the local traditional dish of Cataplana – a seafood dish with potatoes, shrimp and monkfish.

First visit to the casa velha, but I was guided by the other reviews. Very nice pork fillets with sliced fried potatoes and fresh vegetables which weren't spoiled by over-cooking. Good portion size.

The Tourist Menu at Casa Velha was the best overall value we found in the Oura area - E12.90 for four courses and a drink. We have been several times and never been disappointed. Service can be slow, but that's fairly normal for Portugal. Good variety of dishes and good quality. Happy to return again any time.

Thank Homewright
