I went there for a business meeting. The place is very authentic and picturesque. The food is great, so tasty! The staff was nice. The only thing less pleasant is that has a very small parking. Overall we liked very much.

I had to be in Vila Real for a visti to the university there (UTAD) and on one of the nights we went to Chaxoila. What a pleasant (and tasty!) suprise. We were all of us (8) portuguese speakers (3 from Brazil, though) and so communication with the well humoured staff was fun. Their suggestions were accepted and we all... More

Have visited this restaurant over the past 4 years and every time a winner. Once again had the tripe Portuguese style and my wife the baby squid, both 1/2 doses (Portuguese version of plate for one); both excellent. Went again a couple of nights later and we shared a full dose of baby calamari with roasted potatoes; divine !! Service... More

Staying at Casa Agricola de Levada for only one night, we were directed here by Sonia. By road it is a couple of kilometers, but if you find the back way out of the property it is a 5 minute walk, albeit slightly uphill. Unpretentious from the outside, once past the modern porch there are three tables next to the... More

Traditional food restaurant with a very nice environment. It has a summer terrace where you can dine in perfection. The kitchen is regionally inspired and it was here that were born the famous "Tripas aos molhos"!

We were staying at Casa Agricola da Levada a few minutes walk from the restaurant. We had been recommended to eat here and were really glad to have been guided in this way. We have to confess that we know virtually no Portuguese but we were able to select fantastic veal, pork and beef dishes. The waiter was really helpful... More
