“Always delicious piglet meal”
Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

1st time that I review despite all the years that I come here. Have tried several other ones on the same main road of Mealhada and like this one the most. Although it might be one of the busiest Sundays in August the service is still nice and quick and the meat with salad and chips are always delicious. My son doesn't appreciate that much piglet and had veal steaks and he ate them all. Every time we have to drive to Porto or back we stop here for a meal.

“This is the place to eat the famous "Leitão da Bairrada"”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

The service was excellent, but the food was just perfect. The Leitão was very well roasted, juicy and with crisping skin. The accompanying red sparkling wine was a perfect complement. One slight less good issue was the price - a bit over the average. Yet, I will surely return.

You have to try the region specialty ... «Leitão Assado». Small porc roasted with french fries. Very, very good.

“Nice service, great food!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

One of the best places to have Leitão.. and highly typical portuguese dish. Ask for Leitao with chips and you will get delighted. If you like it spicy ask for the sauce (at least try it...)
