“Best Leitão!”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

The service is always great and fast. The Leitão is always fresh out of the oven and very very good.
If you like leitão this is the place to go. Very spacious, family friendly, great leitão, good location and parking spaced. Good house wine!

“If you like pork, or even if you don't, this is the place”
Reviewed December 8, 2011

Pedro dos Leitoes is the best place to have a great meal when you traval from the North to Lisbon (exit the highway at Mealhada). Ask for the Leitao with Batatas and Salada, and drink the Especial da Casa (you don't need to ask for a special wine, this is it). The restaurant is big, employees are friendly and professional, and the food is incredibly good.

“Anthony Bourdain's dream place”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

I don't know if Bourdain has ever been to this place but if you share his philosophy and think that pork is the most wonderful animal, you need to visit "Pedro dos Leitoes". The piglet is to die for!!!!

“Funtastic roast piglet "Bairrada"”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

More than 60ys of history, was the first house in the world to market the roast piglet from Bairrada.
Despite having a room where you can receive more than four hundred people, and an oven that sees hundreds of pounds of pig out every day, never discouragement their customers, keeping from the quality and excellence of his product.
A really recomend
