At the very end of Quadrado, this place has a fabulous atmosphere, good service and great food. Overpriced, like every other place in the Quadrado.

It was our last night in Trancoso, and my cousin said that I had to go to the Cacau for dinner. So we went, me and my wife. We ordered drinks and crab meat for entrées and my wife order the "picadinho" and I ordered the grilled lobster. My wife's dish was great, but mine was "floating" on a garlic... More

Indicated by people that should know we went and checked out the Cacau. The beautiful setting on a hot, sweaty night was promising. The service as we arrived was very nice and helpful. The orders however took too long. When we finally got our Bobos de camera it was overcooked i.e. burned and we had to sent one back. The... More

We had dinner at cacau, the food was ok, very expensive. The service was good. Personally I do not intend to return, because I prefer other prestaurants around.

We loved the place with a cozy atmosphere and great food. The appetizers are very tasty. Passion Fruit caipirinhas are worth it! The waivers were very attentive. Try the Cocada de Forno for desert!

I am not an expert of local cuisine. But I also don't think it will be my favorite. We ordered a chicken salad, but the chicken was not cooked inside. The shrimp stroganoff had a lot of shrimps and was quite tasty. My only problem with it was it doesn't come with any vegi only shrimps and the thick sauce.... More

After an entire day at the beach we decided to have dinner at O Cacau. The atmosphere was amazing and the dishes came exactly as we want to. We started with a vegetable and mango salad and for the main course - shrimps with coconut sauce. Wonderful! To finalize we decided to order a desert that remembered our grandmothers -... More

I've visited Trancoso in August, and went to Cacau twice because the food is so good that I wanted to try lots of foods. It's a little pricey but it is worth. When I visit Trancoso again probably will go there.
