This place is highly crowded, especially on sundays. Reservation is needed in order not to wait too much. For 16€ you can taste some typical food from Portugal / this region. The "arroz de cabidela" and "feijoada de javali" were great. The other two dishes were just OK. Before leave this place, you must try the desserts. Live music is... More

No menu. One price. Typical portuguese food. Let the food flow... it's 3 meals with all included. Don't Forget to drink a liqueur at the end in the cafe... If you go there don't be surprise by the look in the ground floor, it's look like a normal little café of the village. the best thing to do it's to... More

O Albertino is a nice typical restaurant to go with family and friends, the food is tasty and very well served. Later, you can go sightseeing the awsome landscapes in Folgosinho. Warning, you may need to make reservations because its full everytime.

My husband and I took our teenaged son for lunch here as it has great ratings on Trip Advisor. We never got a bite - decided to leave due to the shocking rudeness of the owner of the restaurant! We had enjoyed a marvelous couple of days in Serra Da Estrela and found the people to be exceptional everywhere we... More

In the center of a small village near Serra da Estrela, offers a 5-plate buffet (with service) of traditional Portuguese food. Good local appetizers. Experience is improved if you sleep over in one of the available houses... you can enjoy - and eat and drink - more if you do this. Only the restaurant? Rating-4 if you have to travel... More

For some years now I´ve been planning to go here. I´ve heard so many good comments that my expectations were very high. Maybe that´s the main reason why I felt a little bit disappointed. Don´t get me wrong, the place is very nice, the food is good and plentiful, and the service very efficient. Still, O Albertino didn´t earned a... More
