Big dining room with great atmosphere. Of course, all have to try the traditional Negrais suckling pig. Portions are huge. Must try with the house fizzy wine. You can also take the piggy dessert bowl back home.

Situated just outside Negrais village this rustic style decorated restaurant serves tipical pepper spicy piglet (Eur 15.80 for two ) among other Portuguese dishes. Service is good and friendly and no English speaking staff shouldn't be a problem.

The appetizers are great, suckling pig is really good (I prefer the Bairrada style), great decor. It was packed so I would recommend you book a table in advance otherwise you'll have to wait.
