We had a delicious meal. The prawns were huge and perfectly cooked, kids menu all freshly prepared and generous portions. Husbands steak was fantastic. Really delicious Yuka and shrimp croquettes as a starter.
Gorgeous dining area with a talented singer/guitarist playing tasteful music - his style reminded us of Seu Jorge. Not intrusive to the meal, but made the night extra special.
Staff were very helpful and accommodated fussy child without apparent judgement. Hope to return before the trip is over.

They have live music and the tables are located around their lovely tropical garden. It is the most beautiful restaurant in Trancoso.
The food is excellent and they firat serve you with their unique juice of lemon amd capim santo. It tastes exotic. It is delicious. The pear salad with with chees is a great starter and fish in “bananeira” leaf is very tasteful.
I strongly recommend this restaurant while in Trancoso.
The staff is on point!

Excellent dinner. Very fresh, perfectly cooked fish, great side dishes, and accompanied by lemongrass juices and caipirinhas and a nice lemongrass tasting dessert (ice cream, panna cotta and brigadeiro made of lemongrass). Nice ambience, attentive staff, pleasant music. The restaurant is very good and embodies pretty well the Trancoso style.

I have been to Capim Santo in São Paulo and Rio, that are also good , but for me the original in Trancoso is the best one.

We went to Capim santo twice for dinner as it was fanastic. Just off the quadrado the setting is gorgeous, and the staff so helpful (my daughter dropped a glass the first time, our fault for giving her guarana to keep her awake). Worth booking (on the day on the way to the beach) in low season. The food is fabulous, and prices very reasonable for the quality. Best cocktails in town, and wonderful wine.
