Have passed by this place every year on the way to visit grandma. Finally stopped in today. Best steak in Portugal. Tender and flavorful. "Posta a magarenha" was delicious. Average prices. Huge place. No reservations accepted so may have to wait for a table but well worth it.

Great place for Portuguese food. We were 3 and had 2 servings of fried octopus with tomato rice and migas (cabbage, corn bread and beans fried in olive oil), more than enough. Take A25 highway and exit towards Viseu Este, the restaurant is just around the corner. Huge car park.

In Miami there is this amazing Portuguese restaurant called Old Lisbon and we usually go there on special occasions. We love Portuguese food. We found this restaurant in Viseu on our way from Salamanca to OPorto. It is very close to the highway. We had the best "bacalhau com natas" ever! Truly amazing! If you happen to be in the... More

A restaurant well located with good food, that has excelent prices for the quality of the food. Recommend the "Arroz de Cabidela", but attention that this dish is tempered with chicken blood that gives the unique taste
