My friends and I decided to make a food destination of Pedro dos Leitoes on our drive from Madrid to Lisbon and we weren't disappointed in going out of our way for this place. This local version of suckling pig exceeded our expectations and I've been thinking about it for over a week now. Here's a quick rundown: Parking: ample... More

Whenever we are in the area, Pedro dos Leitões is our first choice for the traditional "leitão à bairrada" (Portuguese style roast pork). The food is excellent and the staff is very friendly and welcoming!! This time we were with some friends and they loved the food as well!!

Amazing suckling pig. My husband really enjoyed the olive starters while my favorite was the mixed salad. You owe it to yourself to visit this restaurant and order the roasted piglet.

It was perfect in every way! From the bread in the beginning, to the delicious roast piglet and the amazing sparkling wine. Everyone was really friendly and the restaurant was very inviting. Amazing lunch. I recommend 100%!

We came to this amazing restaurant and we're served by Ricardo Lopes who gave us the best service we received in our whole trip to Portugal! The food was amazing and the service was exceptional! You won't regret the trip to this historic restaurant!

This was my first time in the restaurant and the piglet is amazing. The service is very good and the piglet came straight from the oven, very tender and crisp. A must visit for piglet lovers and to all those that do not know yet that they love piglet.

Terrible experience in a restaurant area that has long been said for the good service and the quality of its main product - the bairrada pig. But it's true. We arrived at one of the best-known restaurants in Mealhada, Pedro dos Leitões, on January 1, 2017, around 7:00 p.m. and we had a huge disappointment. We came from the Rui... More

Excelente grilled piglet, good wine cellar, fair service and price. It's one of the best options for eating the region's typical grilled piglet .
