Although it s well known and with nice ambiente and great location, a few times I went I didn't like the food that much (both beef and fish)

I recently had dinner and then lunch the following day - superb meals. Best caldo verde and codfish in cream I've had anywhere in Portugal. I had the fish soup the next day, that was excellent as well. My favourite part of the experience was the staff - my server was very kind and sent me home with some extra... More

Telheiro is one of the best restaurants in Aveiro. They have a nice grill and very good and fresh fish. If you like good fish you must try this restaurant. The staff is also very nice.

The best Portuguese food! I definitely recommend this restaurant if you would like to try a typical Portuguese cuisine. I advise only the portions are well served, so if you eat less choose a half portion. Everything is fantastic the starter tô the deserves. The disadvantages are they don't have air conditioners and it is essential, it was very hot... More

It's possibly the best restaurant in Aveiro. The food is tipically portuguese, the space is very pretty and the servants are very nice.

This is a very nice restaurante, in which you can have a feel for most of the Aveiro's typical food and some of the more general Portuguese food heritage, as well. The cooking is simple, yet authentic and exquisite, which makes the food great. I was born and raised in Aveiro, and whenever I receive people from other cities or... More

We were attracted to this place by the fact that despite the big size it was full of locals on not so busy evening. That was not the case for most of places we passed by on the hunt for perfect dinner location. The restaurant is located next to fish market so it felt like fish was a mandatory choice... More
