Small little place, that serves great homemade food. Been there for lunch, booked in advance (fortunately) and had the lunch menu they have, at 7,50€/person. Recommended if you're in the area.

A nice and traditional portuguese restaurant, with very good food and not very expensive. When we will visit Castelo Branco again, we'll sure go back there!

I always liked the place, so if you want to play safe, that is a good restaurant to bet on it! The waiters are very nice and the price is very good according to what you order.

Very helpful staff and great food! Even though it is very traditional food it does not seem dated at all! We felt welcome right from the start and the ambiente too was very convincing!

Very nice cooked food starting with the surprising soup and good salade. The main dishes were very tasty and large size.

Beautiful! Pear, banana, pineapple, courgettes, feijao, rice, beef. An abundance of flavour. Great quality at a very reasonable price. Lovely, humble staff. Three and a half hours away from Lisbon on a train - but loved it!

Had wild boar, pork and bacalhau dishes. Nothing special, a bit disappointing after reading the TripAdvisor ranking.
