Our dinner was absolutely amazing! The service is excellent. For starters, we had one of the best seats in the house! We opted to make a reservation 2 days before we arrived (by email), and while we didn't ask, they gave us a seat at the window where we could watch the sunset (very romantic). If I could recommend anything... More

Much confusion on our visit because our driver could not go up to the hotel- restricted due to medieval festival. That's fine but if you think I'm dragging 4 bags with 2 kids up a steep cliff to your hotel - not what I call a top notch experience. The savior of the day hotel staff Francisco (?) ran up... More

We did not think too much about our wedding anniversary (34 years) because we were generally so immersed in our trip to Portugal. However, finding ourselves in Obidos on the very day, we huffed and puffed up to the Castelo, assuring each other that we would dine there only if they had a window table - fat chance! Yet the...

It was a unique experience eating high up in the castle with a view of the ramparts and beautiful countryside. The art and the dining room were lovely. The food was good but not outstanding. Compared to other restaurants we ate at in Portugal the preparation was old-fashioned. I had duck à l'orange and it was tasty but not creative.... More

Arrived at 7, as per opening times - nobody here. Rang up, was told to come back at 7.30 and hung up on. We chilled out, took a seat outside the front door and waited to be served. Now 7.40 and nobody seems interested in taking our order so we're leaving. Very pretty site but would give this restaurant a... More

When does one get an opportunity to stay in a castle? We had an awesome time climbing and walking the ancient castle exterior walls and Obidos. The rooms were very comfortable and the restaurant was excellent!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a stay at this unique hotel. Of course, we had to eat in the castle as well! So happy we did!

The setting in Obidos Castelo is superb. Ask the moon table there you get great view , sit near a beautiful window in a romantic table. Service is great. Food is certainly good but not great.
