I believe this is currently the best restaurant in Óbidos and i'm a regular visitor. It is not a 5 stars service but the staff is very kind and try to attend every request. Fair wine list (i suggest local red wines: "Quinta das Cerejeiras Reserva"). Visa and master card accepted. Concerning the food this restaurant speciality is the fish which is genuine sea fish and very fresh (some places in this region are selling pond fish as sea fish ... IT IS NOT THE SAME FLAVOUR NEITHER THE PRICE!). Grilled, fried, boiled ... just order it at your taste. I personally suggest the head of grouper grilled and flavoured with hot olive oil with garlic. YUMMY!! Also the fried fish with "açorda" (a stew of bread mashed with olive oil, garlic, cilantro and fresh egg). Another must is the "Cabrito Assado" (young goat roasted in the oven) but i suggest you order in advance because this is probably the most "desired" dish. It is recommended for children as they have very good steaks, burgers and those kind of kids preferences. Smoke is not allowed inside the restaurant. Price: 20€ -> 25 € per person, with starters, a good wine, main dish and desert.

Location: 1 km away from Óbidos center. If you're staying in the village you might walk to get there.

We (together with my wife and a couple of friends) had dinner there. Made a special effort in view of the favorable reviews. It was nice, the service courteous but nothing special and not worth the effort (we walked ther by foot from the Pousada because it was too much trouble to take out the car from the congested parking spot). The prices are above average and it is not really a place "frequented by locals" though there were a few there.

I had seen good reviews for O Caldeirao on Tripadvisor, and they did not disappoint! We were here on a quiet Friday night, and were the only tourists in the restaurant, with a handful of local diners... The lovely couple who were front of house were so welcoming and helpful. I had goat for the first time ever, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The menu is not extensive, but I get the impression that with daily specials, and the maitre d's advice, you could experience more than the usual menu items. A definate restaurant to return to!

This great restaurant, facing the unusual 8 sided church of Senhor Jesus da Pedra, serves typical portuguese food. I highly reccommend the "Arroz de Pato" (duck with rice), the tornedó or the pork and shrimp kebabs.
The wine list has a good variety, the staff is helpful and friendly and the restaurant has lots of space and parking is available for free, right in front of the restaurant.

We had an excellent lunch here. About 2 minutes or so from the town.
Started with some very tasty fresh clams and moved on to something that tasted much better than it looked... steak in peppercorn sauce. It looked like it was swimming in cream sauce but in fact it was very light and delicious. Went great with their rice which we had to ask for more since we enjoyed the sauce so much. Also had a perfectly grilled dorado. Very nice option while visiting
