We had a lovely meal here tonight. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, not overly intrusive. We ordered the Monkfish, prawn and clam rice stew which was fantastic and some pudding. The house white wine was just 8 Euros for a carafe and excellent. Highly recommended and defo worth a trip from the hotels at the top of Bom Jesus.... More

We were recommended O Portico by our guide, unfortunately it appears to only open at weekends this time of year. The food is excellent and if I have one complaint the main course portions are on the large side. If you like Shrimp try the Shrimp in Pastry as a starter, the Monkfish mains are very tasty. Probably just as... More

Great Authentic regional restaurant. We had a big steak that was really tender with the house's red wine. Lovely combination. And even after all that food you can't go away without a dessert.

At the bottom of the funicular to Bom Jesus Basilica is found a delightful country restaurant with a good english-speaking Portuguese owner. We shared locally sourced salads and sausages followed by a shared steak. All the main courses are large and may be shared. They come with vegetables. The wine list is extensive for local wines and the owner will... More

On a busy night the place would be a good night out, though I can not think of circumstances that would make it busy as it is in a remote location. As it was we were 2 of 13 customers and the place lacked atmosphere. The food was ok, but we did not get what we thought we had ordered... More

If you happen to be in front and see the menu, don't think it's too expensive (23€ average a main) because the portions are at least for 2. The place is very nice and cozy, the service is good and the food is excellent.. I have to say it was perhaps the best codfish (bacalhau) I've tried on these 10... More

Lovely quaint little restaurant. Made very welcome and when asked what the waiter recommended he came up with superb local dishes. Wine of the area was also very good. Highly recommend this restaurant.
