“Lovely family run restaurant”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We had a wonderfull evening at O Hilario. Traditional portugese food at very reasonable prices. The menu is in portugese, so for us tourists it can be quite tricky to choose, my advice is to persevere, the food is good old fashioned home cooking. The couple that run the restaurant are lovely people and language is not a barrier, thoroughly enjoyed the evening and definately recommend.

“Simple delicious home cooked food”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Simple and delicious honest home cooked food. Very friendly service. Reasonable prices. Family run. If you want,you leave with new friends for life. Try the "Linguade" (Sole). Delicious pieces of ever so lightly battered fried fish. House wine good. Have eaten here a number of times during the past 5 years. This again was a repeat visit. Recommended.

“Charming and delicious”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We trusted tripadvisor for a lunch in Viseu, and no. 1 did not disappoint. O hilario is run by the most delightful couple that truly cares about their guests. The original dishes are explained with patience. And they are truly delicious and different from the standard fare of many places in portugal. Try the cooked pork ribs with different sausages!

“Great quality with simplicity”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Having dinner (or lunch) at Hilário is like going back in time to those days of childhood when we all loved our grandmother's meals, full of flavour, prepared with lovely fresh products, and with the right seasoning. We had the stewed lamb and the fried octopus. Needless to say that the octopus was tender and the lamb was exquisite with a subtle pinch of piri-piri. The owners are gentle and always like to talk bit with clients, creating a familiar and informal atmosphere.
Couldn't be better...
