With lockdowns starting to ease and most of us looking forward to enjoying eating out at restaurants again, I thought we could start a thread where you can list your favourite places to eat out. Any type of cuisine, any price point, and location. 

Please mentioned where they are located and if they have a website, include the link too.

My current favourite is Hifen in Cascais.

Could not agree more. Very important to support our local cafes and restaurants as they try to recover from this terrible situation. One of my favourites is O Tabuleiro in Tomar.

Great fish restaurant in Matosinhos, near Porto. Cannot wait to go back especially with sardine season looming😛

Carneiro Alado - a fantastic little place in our little village (Vila Chā, near Tábua)  - super friendly and even serves vegan food and beer too, so heaven on earth for us.  Can't wait to get back there....

Carneiro Alado is/was one our favourites also. However the menu has not changed since they opened, and last time we went the food was dry reheated. Carbonised chicken wings are not very pleasant.

Until then we always enjoyed it there.

I understand that the building is the country house of Sa Carneiro who was prime minister of Portugal just after the revolution and died in an air crash when flying from Lisbon to Porto. There are plenty of conspiracy theories about this. Porto airport is named after him.

The best restaurant in this area must the one at the Olive museum in Bobadela. It is in a totally different class. https://museudoazeite.com/?lang=en

The next one is L´Ártista, also near Oliveira de Hospital. https://www.facebook.com/lartista.pt/

Hi Alan, I think perhaps you're thinking of another place?  

Caneiro Alda in Vila Chã certainly isn't in a country house and I'd be amazed if a Portuguese president ever lived there - it's just a modest little conversion-job, with a sweet and shady beer garden, at the top end of a sleepy little village. It is very lovely, but isn't terribly grand.  

(I can't speak for the chicken, but I do know that last autumn when we were house-hunting in the area, the menu changed twice in 7 weeks and the food was fresh, delicious and home-cooked. And did I mention... vegan options 🤗 🤗 😉 .....) 

We've got no vested interest in the place, other than to hope it manages to stay afloat and starts to thrive again, because it's a total godsend to have such a fabulous bar and restaurant within walking distance from our home.

You're right tho, the restaurant at the Museo do Azeite is stylish and classy, but pretty expensive by our standards at least - and there was almost nothing on the menu we could eat.
