We stumbled across this restaurant last fall when we were just driving around Louisa. We had a very nice lunch with fresh brewed ice tea. We ended up talking to the chef at length and we were most impressed with the dinner specials they offered. We went back recently and had a similar (i.e. enjoyable) experience.

Visited today for the first time. One waitress doing several jobs on a Monday when another called in sick. She was pleasant in spite of having her hands full. We both had a quesadilla lunch, one a daily special, and one a usual menu item. Both were served with fruit, and were very good. I would say the food is... More

Very elegant yet relaxed, the food is excellent and prepared perfectly yet unpretentious. The wine list is also very nice and well thought out.

My spouse and I really enjoyed this restaurant. We live about 50 miles from their front door, but it’s always an enjoyable ride in the country to get here and the food never disappoints. We stopped in for lunch this week and ordered the soup and half sandwich; BLT for me and Deli for him. The BLT, while obviously basic,... More

Obrigado (thank you in Portuguese) offers enough menu items to provide too many tempting dishes too chose from in just one sitting. The fried oysters were crispy and light. Delicious. The pasta exceptional. My wife loved the falafel. We had a great IPA on tap. Each dish is made from scratch and the reward is in the taste.

I took my sister and her daughter here for a luncheon. they are from Los Angeles and were expecting a diner-type eatery. Imagine their surprise when they encountered a gourmet restaurant in small town Louisa with fantastic food at what they thought were very reasonable prices. The service was friendly and swift, something they rarely ever get in their area... More

Food is great, just need to speed up lunch service. Most locals only get 30 min lunch breaks. Try to get quick lunch menu, maybe 15 min or less options.
