Albertino, is one of those things you must visit in Serra da Estrela. There you may find traditional Portuguese cuisine with several option, we get the 5 dishes menu. The experience is very nice and the staff is always showing you that they like to receive and welcome you. I fully recommend “feijoada de Javali” Wild boar stew and “Arroz... More

Whether or not you have a reservation, the show starts when you enter the restaurant and ask for a table: you´ll be waiting for a room-manager that literally shouts the family names on the waiting list... When seated, you´ll be introduced to various plates of regional gastronomy, all supposed to be family produced, and accompanied by their own wines... If... More

Speechless. We had plentiful rain and mist so the entire place was a tad literary. Food, lodging and overall attention by Albertino [even if S. never called back, ahem] was amazing. Would be at pains to be more specific – so many good things ... Obrigado !

One price (16€), four main dishes. Three desserts. Bread, water and coffee included. No menu. Two of the dishes are gorgeous (arroz de cabidela and feijoada de javali). Serving is clearly intended for those with a huge apetite.

This place is highly crowded, especially on sundays. Reservation is needed in order not to wait too much. For 16€ you can taste some typical food from Portugal / this region. The "arroz de cabidela" and "feijoada de javali" were great. The other two dishes were just OK. Before leave this place, you must try the desserts. Live music is... More
