Do not miss... More

Enjoyed a great meal of local food without being rushed. Easy to find as Obidos is a small town and the restaurant is well known by the locals.

Wonderful lunch with a view table. Great service. We had the lentil and pumpkin soup and sautéed vegetables on mashed pumpkin. Very good. Dao tinto wine by the glass was tasty. Took over 20 minutes to get our check which put a little crimp in the experience but it was so fabulous It didn't matter much. We are on vacation... More

The hotel is awesome. Located within the castle, guests are made to feel like kings and queens. The rooms are nicely appointed and the staff excellent.

The service is wonderful. Better than the food. But if you reserve in advance you can sit in a nook inside the castle wall and have a terrific view of the sunset.

We were offered a choice of two starters, salad or soup. The salad was mainly lettuce and the soup was like oxtail with a piece of sausage stuck in the middle.

Enjoyed the salads and the sardines. The Salmon dish was well prepared. Great chocolate desert. Horrible coffee. Amazing service. The location is sensational. Book a window seat in advance and stay the night for a truly king and queen experience.

First, this is the restaurant and is listed as a restaurant. The Obidos Pousada hotel is listed separately as a hotel. Reviewers should look at what they are doing. Supposedly, this restaurant won an award. Bizarre because it is overpriced for what you get. We shared a sardine appetizer which was very good. Then I had their chicken special, which... More
