Great view

Get a window seat for two and you can see a long way. The views are worth the extra you pay for the meal. The sole was perfect. We had an asparagus soup and a seafood soup. Both were good but the asparagus soup was much better. Great service

Expect to pay the premium for this quiet retreat away from the crowds. I am sitting here enjoying the view having just finished the most delightful mussels I have ever had! The Wild Boar is also excellent. I love ordering dishes I would never have at home. Excellent service, free wifi, wine and stunning views. What's not to like! Highly... More

Obidos is already a wonderful medieval treasure in the heart of portugal. A must to go visit. I went with my family on a day trip from lisbon (by car) and walked around the little streets, tried the ginja and everything else the town has to offer. Our recommendation goes to the amazing pousada inside the castle walls. The staff... More

Stayed for 3 nights while touring Portugal. Like all the Pousada they are to an excellent standard. We where disappointed with the buffet style meals in the evening in our opinion not good and because of the location you are stuck with it. We where on a package tour so the buffet was what you got.

We stayed at the Castelo de Obidos. This is the second Pousada from the Pestana Group. The all have the same problem... Need to be redecorated. This hotel is fantastic but looks like if it is still a state owner property like it was in the past.. It looks very decadent, old, with few or no mantainance. The door at... More

We are independent travellers in our 60s who are travelling for several months, so to make the money last longer we don't eat expensive meals out.

I thought it would be a nice experience to eat in a castle even if it was going to be overpriced. I was fine with all that but the food was really, really mediocre.
