Despite being one of the most expensive restaurants in Arouca, this place and its food is worth for the price. You will taste the pure Aroucan meat and several local pastries. Book in advance!

We get there because a recomendation to eat vitela. It was amazing good, amazing price. Positive: food and chef Negative: they bring you some tapas before eating, and if you are a turist, you even know that you will pay for all that food.

Great “small town” restaurant with excellent “huuuge” meat dishes, at the price of a cheap Lisbon restaurant. Be careful! They might serve you the complementary honey liquor after you pay for your bill. Strong (and good) stuff!

We went by recommendation from our hotel owner while visiting Arouca. Great food, enormous portions (take 1/2 if you're not starving). One of the waiters had a very good English so he took care of us. Nice atmosphere, lots of families with kids, go earlier...More
