If Trip Advisor had a good category between Average and very good then I would have given that rating. We had one portion of leitao between two of us for lunch and it was enough. The meat was tender and the crackling was crispy. I...was not too keen on the "sauce" which is the meat juices with lots of pepper. The meat is accompanied by chips and a simple salad.More

Strategically located on the road side in Mealhada (where this kind of piglet dish is originally from) this restaurant is a restaurant along the road with an old simple decor. Don't expect much from the restaurant looks just concentrate on the food. It’s not the...kind of restaurant where you'll go for a fast meal but the food is good and you’ll mainly see around locals and other Portuguese coming for the piglet. For those who are not meat lovers they also serve fish (although none of us tried it). It’s good for lunch/dinner, with friends, business or even for families with children although I believe it can get a bit loud (we already went close to 15h so it was quiet). The wine menu is rather poor although for the piglet you should just try the local "frizzante" - castiço. There’s no wifi and the waiters are friendly and service is ok.More

Very soft and tender Leitão! Best that we have eaten so far. Restaurant, location, service was all very good! Very large portion. Clear recommendation! But to Excellent details missing here and there.
