Hidden in the center of Portalegre, you'll have a taste of the tipical Portuguese food. The environment is great, with several rooms. The food (meat dishes and desserts!!!!!) is excellent. The service is good but a litle bit slow. Average price of €15/person.

Portalegre is a humble and rather poor city, as far as I could reason. But "O Escondidinho" is a place that can drive you there more than once. Not everything is great at "O Escondidinho". Most of all the courtesy of the staff, far from...More
