This low-key but attractive restaurant, with its slate walls and fireplace, is midway between the castle and the cathedral. It serves regional Portuguese food with a decent menu of fish and shellfish. As you might expect this far inland, however, such dishes are considerably more expensive than the excellent meat dishes, which include veal and lamb. They also have an unusual recipe for arroz de pato (baked duck rice) that features beer. For a snack or starter, there are excellent ham and cheese platters, grilled chouriço and alheira (smoked and cured garlic sausage respectively) and a wine list whose quality matches that of the food. Chestnuts feature not only in several meaty main dishes but in desserts, too.
