Worth a trip for its stunning location and prize-winning design, this restaurant is also renowned for its regional cuisine. Perched in the Serra Amarela, 12 km (7½ miles) from Terras de Bouro, the long building slots into the surrounding slate, its terrace affording panoramic views of the River Homem. Outstanding main dishes include tender barrosã steak. The dessert menu has family recipes as well as standards such as pudim abade de priscos (egg-and-almond pudding) and ricotta with pumpkin jam.
